Borum 1902 Oct 1″ and various other illegible inscriptions. This is currently the only known bookcase on bureau form from the Frye-Martin group. 93 1/4″ H x 42″ W x 23” D. Provenance: The bookcase and bureau was given to Douglas Borum (1882-1945) of Southwestern Virginia by his mother, Caroline Borum (1852-1941), on July 9th, 1928 (detailed on the writing slide of the bookcase on bureau). Caroline Borum was married to Captain Calvin Monroe Borum (1842-1921). Caroline was the heir of her family home, Spengler Hall in Strasburg, Virginia. The Borums renamed the house ìMatin Hillî after the hill on which the home was built. The diary accompanying the bookcase and bureau was written during the Borum ownership from a period 1861-1869. Carolineís father was Samuel Kendrick (1802 – ?). Samuel purchased Spengler Hall from his first cousin Joseph Spengler, who inherited the home from his father, Anthony Spengler/Spangler, in 1834. Anthony Spangler (1774-1834) began building Spangler Hall around 1800. Spangler Hall is a large brick house directly off Route 11 in Strasburg, Shenandoah County, Virginia and is noted for its sophisticated interior woodwork. Note – this lot also contains a handwritten journal with the inscription “July 1861 Names of the Soldiers who have called at Matin Hill”. The next two pages list various Confederate soldiers from Virginia and Mississippi regiments. Also included in the journal are various songs and poems including a “Farewell to the Star Spangled Banner” dated July 6th, 1863. Other inscribed names include “Crawford”, and “Charles OMalley The Irish Dragoon”. Condition: Retains the original surface.

Lot 162: Early East TN Corner Cupboard, Moses Crawford Early East TN Corner Cupboard, Moses Crawford Lot 162: Early East TN Corner Cupboard, Moses Crawford

A 1775 deed signed by five Overhill Cherokee leaders and witnessed by Moses and Samuel Crawford provides the earliest documentation for any cabinetmaker within the political boundaries now recognized as the state of Tennessee. Histories of Crawford’s surviving furniture represent ownership traceable to Scots-Irish families who established themselves in Knox and Blount counties between the years 1787 and 1801 (courtesy C. Tracey Parks). CONDITION: Older refinish with hinge replacements. Lower panel doors appears to be a second quarter of the 19th century restoration replacing an earlier drawer midsection configuration with smaller panel doors. [See more photos →]

Lot 133: Inlaid Chest 2 of 2, Norfolk VA or British, Inlaid Feet Inlaid Chest 2 of 2, Norfolk VA or British, Inlaid Feet Lot 133: Inlaid Chest 2 of 2, Norfolk VA or British, Inlaid Feet

Hepplewhite inlaid mahogany serpentine chest of drawers, Norfolk, Virginia or British Isles, mahogany primary with cedar, birch, and possible fir or spruce secondary woods. Serpentine-front flamed mahogany overhanging top, having chamfered concave corners, over a conforming case with contrasting four-sided flower and intertwined vine inlay to corners; four graduated dovetailed drawers with cock-beaded edges and rectangular string inlay, brass escutcheons and round brass bail pulls. Top drawer divided into three sections. Straight skirt with central line inlay, over line-inlaid, straight bracket feet; rear feet horizontally laminated. 40" H x 47-3/8" W x 22-3/8" D at center. Circa 1800. Note: this is one of two remarkably similar chests in this auction from the same collection (but acquired separately, from different sources), both of which follow a form that originated in the British Isles but also appears in the area around Norfolk, Virginia. This chest is also accompanied by a letter written in 2015 by Christopher Lang, conservator and cabinetmaker, formerly of Colonial Williamsburg, comparing this chest with the other chest (most easily distinguished from each other by feet – inlaid on this chest, and plain on the chest referred to in the letter as "the Horne chest"). Lang attributes both chests to Norfolk, Virginia and writes "it is probable that these accomplished pieces came from the same cabinet shop." Note that microanalysis has not confirmed the woods on this chest. As a port city, Norfolk furniture makers (many of whom were British immigrants) had access to a wide variety of hard and soft woods being imported and exported through the city, and in this instance, the presence or absence of certain woods makes geographic attribution based on woods alone very difficult. This chest surfaced in a Virginia auction but no further provenance information was known. Provenance: Private Southern Collection. CONDITION: Overall general use wear, some scratching to the top. Losses to inner front edge of top drawer.ÊCouple of minor veneer repairs to bottom drawer corner, skirt and feet. Repair to rear foot. [See more photos →]

Lot 132: Inlaid Chest 1 of 2, Norfolk VA or British Isles Inlaid Chest 1 of 2, Norfolk VA or British Isles Lot 132: Inlaid Chest 1 of 2, Norfolk VA or British Isles

Inlaid serpentine chest of drawers, Norfolk, Virginia or British Isles, mahogany primary with pine, birch, ash and spruce (ash and spruce confirmed by microanalysis) secondary woods. Serpentine-front flamed mahogany overhanging top, having chamfered concave corners, over a conforming case with contrasting four-sided flower and intertwined vine inlay to corners; four graduated dovetailed drawers with cock-beaded edges and rectangular string inlay, full dustboards. Top drawer divided into three sections. Straight skirt with line inlay at top, over straight plain bracket feet; rear feet horizontally laminated. Brass escutcheons, locks and round brass bail pulls. 41-1/2" H x 47-1/4" W x 22-7/8" D at center. Circa 1800. Note: this is one of two remarkably similar chests in this auction from the same collection (but acquired separately, from different sources), both of which follow a form that originated in the British Isles but also appears in the area around Norfolk, Virginia. It is accompanied by a 2004 copy of letter written by furniture conservator James L. Horne of Goodlettsville, Tennessee, attributing this chest (which was at that time owned by Nashville dealer Jim Williams) to Norfolk, Virginia. This assertion is made based on the form and construction techniques including horizontal blocking or lamination of the feet, the grain of the runners which runs parallel to the dust boards and sides of the chest, and the presence of woods including red and yellow pine (based on Horne's visual identification). However, we have not confirmed the presence of yellow pine in this chest. As a port city, Norfolk furniture makers (many of whom were British immigrants) had access to a wide variety of hard and soft woods being imported and exported through the city, and the presence or absence of certain woods makes geographic attribution based on woods alone very difficult. This chest is also accompanied by a letter written in 2015 by Christopher Lang, conservator and cabinetmaker, formerly of Colonial Williamsburg, comparing this chest with the other chest (most easily distinguinshed from each other by the plain feet on this chest – referred to in the letter as "the Horne chest" versus the inlaid feet on the second chest). Lang attributes both chests to Norfolk, Virginia and writes "it is probable that these accomplished pieces came from the same cabinet shop." This chest surfaced in a Nashville estate and was purchased by dealer Jim Williams, but no additional provenance information is known. Provenance: Private Southern collection. CONDITION: Overall very good condition with general use wear, some light stains to the top and surface scratching to front. Some small veneer patches to skirt. Chubb, English-stamped brass locks appear later than the chest. [See more photos →]
