The face with classic features of the region, this female figure is beautifully adorned with a pleated wrap skirt and an elaborate headdress. There are remnants of red and yellow paint across the figure, the red traces being most visible on the headdress. Height: 4" NOTE: Tlatilco was a large Pre-Columbian chiefdom that flourished in the area that is present day Mexico City, Mexico. This period marked the increase in the areas of complex settlement and social structures. Tlatilco was a pioneer of long distance trade of items such as obsidian, iron ore, and green stone, explaining the influence of the Olmec on this culture. There were two main ceramic practices at Tlatilco, large hollow figures and small solid figures. The exact purpose for these figures is debated; many of them are found in burial sites. Some belief is that the wide hips and narrow waist refer to fertility. Estim ate: $20 0.0 0 - $40 0.0 0

Height: 11 1/2" NOTE: The Yoruba have one of the highest number of twin births in the world, four times higher than in Europe. Ibeji are known to the Yoruba as two people who share one soul. If one of the human twins dies, whether as a child or an adult, the surviving human twin is considered to have little hope of living with only half a soul. Further, the deceased's soul must have a place to reside. When a matched pair of twins is made, it is an indication that both have died. "Ultimately, the surface of an Ibeji measures the object's spiritual value to the caregiver. The response of the Yoruba mothers and caregivers is primarily personal and spiritual, not aesthetic. Even an Ibeji carved by a mediocre artisan can develop a surface reflecting great efficacy to the believer. The wood is worked, fed, oiled, and clothed not so much to fulfill an aesthetic ideal but to fulfill a human need ".... taken from Ibeji Surface Analysis by Charles Bordogna, in Surfaces ed., Kahan, Page, Imperato, 2009, Indiana Univ.

The revolutionary Pedestal Collection, also known as the Tulip Series, was Saarinen's answer for eradicating the fussiness of traditional furniture forms, which he believed contributed to "an ugly, confusing, unrestful world." Saarinen's greatest concern was the visual clutter plaguing the interior space caused by "the slum of legs."

A A RON HENRY GOR SON (A mer ic a n 1872-1933)

A PA INTING, "Steel Mill Pennsy lva ni a,"

oil on canvas, signed L/L. 26" x 30" NOTE: Pioneer industrial landscapist Aaron Harry Gorson came to the United States in 1890 from his native Lithuania. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under Thomas Anshutz. In Paris in 1899, he studied at the Academie Colarossi with Jean Paul Laurens, and the Academie Julien with Benjamin Constant. After Paris, Gorson returned to Pittsburgh in 1903 where he lived and painted until the early 1920s. He was a true urban poet of the paintbrush, in love with the night time beauty of industrial Pittsburgh, the magic of smelting and manufacturing, the glowing of the many lights and their effects on the multi-shaped clouds of smoke amid the setting of the curving Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers. What we today, in our perhaps overly sentimental environmental way, would view only as pollution, Gorson saw as moving visual poetry and monumental artistic beauty. Gorson's paintings of the mills were highly prized by collectors during the last thirty years of his life, and he is remembered today for his achievements in this genre. He was also widely exhibited in major American art museums like the Corcoran Gallery, Washington, D.C.; Art Institute of Chicago; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; and National Academy of Design, New York City.

Height: 40 1/4" Width: 24" Depth: 33 1/2" NOTE: Robert Daws (English 19th Century), occasionally referred to as "Dawes" was an acclaimed cabinetmaker whose studio and residence were located at 17 Margaret Street, Cavendish Square, London, England. In 1827 he won a patent for "Improvements on Chairs or Machines Calculated to Increase Ease and Comfort" which would go on to be used in the creation and design of his signature piece, the present chair. The then immensely popular landscape designer and interiors style commentator John Claudius Loudon (Scottish 1783-1843) gave warm mention of Daws's conception and published an illustration of its design in his Encyclopaedia of Cottage Farm and Villa Architecture and Furniture, 1833, fig. 1913, stating, "... the position of the back of this chair can be varied at please, and the projecting part front can be elongated, or adjusted to any slope. When it is not wanted to be used as a reclining chair, the back can be fixed upright; and the front projection slid in, so as to produce the appearance of a common easy chair." (1813, London) For a closely related chair, see: Gilbert, The Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture 17001840, Leeds, 1996, pl. 281, fig. 176. A virtually identical chair was sold by Christie's London, 10 September 2009, lot 431 for $2,481. Special thanks to Antiques Young Guns. Estim ate: $80 0.0 0 - $1,20 0.0 0

NOTE: Offered together, these two unique commercial flacons share a similar history. In 1926, cosmetics pioneer Carl Weeks (American 1876-1962) sued both Tre-Jur and Dorothy Gray for trademark infringement, arguing that the hoop skirted ladies, which had become recognizable logos for both companies, shared too many similarities with the logo designed for his cosmetics firm, Armand Company. Weeks won the formal dispute, prompting both Tre-Jur and Dorothy Gray to change their beloved emblems. Beginning December 1926, Tre-Jur redesigned all of their products with a new profile of a lady without a hooped skirt. Dorothy Gray also took up a new neoclassical logo for compacts and cases. For the "Savoir Faire" line, however, a black mask motif was adopted exclusively for the fragrance. Special thanks to Compactstory and Grace E. Hummel. Estim ate: $40 0.0 0 - $60 0.0 0 379

RUTHVEN. / HOUSTON, TEXAS. / To his father / in Edinburgh, 1841. / Cut from the Battleground of San Jacinto," ending in a tapering circular bronze collar and cast iron base cap. Height: 36" NOTE: The Battle of San Jacinto (in present day Harris County, TX), is considered the decisive battle of the Texas War of Independence (1835-1836) and was fought on April 21, 1836. The Texian Army, led by General Sam Houston, defeated the Mexican Army under Gen. Santa Anna in just eighteen minutes. Provenance: Archibald St. Clair Ruthven a Scotsman who emigrated to the United States in 1832 and ultimately to Houston, Texas in 1840. In 1841, Ruthven was initiated into the first Masonic Lodge for Texas, Holland Lodge No.1, where he progressed rather quickly attaining a variety of offices. Ultimately, he was appointed as Grand Master (1846-1847) followed by Grand Secretary (1848-1861). While serving as Grand Secretary he was able to chronicle an important two volume publication "Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Texas: 1837-1857," which covered the organization's early history as well as records. He was also active in the Knights Templar at New Orleans and later in Houston at the Ruthven Commandery No. 1, so named in his honor. He was well known for his protestations of the annexation of Texas by the United States. In 1855 he and his wife moved to Galveston, where he served as the Texas representative for cotton purchasing for a New York firm and later Powell & Ruthven of Galveston. Good cotton business led to him commissioning a steamboat in his name in 1861 but was shortly to be used as transport vessel during the War of Northern Aggression (1861-1865). Ultimately it was sunk but the anchor was recovered and is displayed in Palestine, Texas. During the war, Ruthven was actively involved in blockade running of the Texas coast. Just before the war ended, he and his wife returned to Scotland where he fell ill with tuberculosis and died on July 24th, 1865. Estim ate: $50 0.0 0 - $750.0 0

intricately detailed throughout and faithfully reproducing the original details found on the equestrian statue to the Captain General Condottiero Colleoni (Venetian d. 1475), raised on a rectangular ebonized pedestal with graduated molded trim and base, reversing to an underside enclosing a removable panel revealing a secret compartment. Height: 13 3/4" NOTE: This finely detailed reproduction of the original equestrian monument can be found today in its original location on Venice's Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo. The sculpture depicts the Captain General Condottiero Colleoni (1475), who served the Venetian Republic and left a sizable portion of his estate to the Republic. One of the conditions in his will was that a statue to himself be erected in Venice, which the Venetian state accepted and held a contest to determine who would win the contract. In 1483, Andrea Verrocchio of Florence won with his carved wood model of the equestrian monument instead of the wax or terra cotta models submitted by the other artist. By 1488 his Venetian workshop had completed the wax casting model and was ready to begin the bronze casting process. Unfortunately, Verrocchio died and the statue's completion was given to Alessandro Leopardi, who also designed the pedestal. This equestrian sculpture is considered by many to be second only to an earlier equestrian monument by Donatello. Estim ate: $80 0.0 0 - $1,20 0.0 0

NOTE: Elsa Schiaparelli (French/Italian 1890-1973) introduced "Sleeping" as a feminine night perfume, connecting the fragrance with her avant-garde style and surreal dreamscape fashions. Known for recruiting and collaborating with the top Surrealist artists of the time, Schiaparelli chose to enroll the most celebrated Belgian artist of the 20th Century to design the bottle. René Magritte (Belgian 1898-1967) created a flacon inspired by his idiosyncratic oil painting "The Key of Dreams," 1930, currently part of a private collection. Special thanks to Grace E. Hummel.

Height: 2" Diameter: 14 1/2" NOTE: The figure shown on the plate is most likely Quetzalcóatl, one of the major deities of ancient Mexico. The name is in Nahuatl, quetzalli meaning "tail feather of the quetzal bird," and coatl meaning "snake," thus giving the name, Feathered Serpent. Over the times, his representation has changed. He can be traced as far back as the civilization of Teotihuacán (3rd to 8th century A.D.) where he seemed to portray a vegetation god and was highly associated with the rain god, Tlaloc. From the 9th-12th centuries, the Toltec culture was prominent and highly focused on human sacrifice and war, associating the two with the worship of heavenly bodies. His temple was the center of ceremonies for the Toltec. From the 14th-16th century, Aztec period, he was the patron of priests, the protector of craftsman and the creator of the calendar and all books. He was the morning and evening star and was the symbol of resurrection and death. It was taught that he descended into the hell of Mictlan with his companion Xolotl, a dog headed deity, and gathered the bones of the ancient dead, with his own blood he gave birth to the men who call the present universe home. He is often portrayed in the form of a feathered serpent, a man with a beard and sometimes as Ehécatl, the god of wind. Estim ate: $1,50 0.0 0 - $2,0 0 0.0 0
