Sotter. This work is particularly significant for its large size and subject as Ms. Groome rarely painted landscapes, with only a select few known works which include figures. Appropriately seated in a giltwood Newcomb Macklin frame, frequently used by New Hope School artists, this important oil on canvas is sure to draw attention.
Additionally, this event will offer fine art to include a Douglas Arthur Teed orientalist work (View of a Mosque), a G. W. Waters seascape oil on canvas and many Neoclassical and historical sculptures in bronze, marble and alabaster including an important and rare pair of monumental French Napoleon III parcel gilt and crisply detailed bronze sculptural candelabra depicting Anglo Indian figures beneath parcel gilt palm trees having a deep brown patina. Leading the lighting category is a diminutive Tiffany glass banded acorn lamp exhibiting excellent color and contrast. Offerings of Persian and Caucasian rugs include a rare 19th century Caucasian Dragon Soumak with highly stylized dragons and an unusual running dog border, an early 20th century inscription signed large Mohtasham Kashan with its exceptional Manchester wool sheen, and a Kuba Perepedil rug.
Other categories include fine porcelain with monumental Meissen urns, Sevres and KPM as well as a private selection of artist signed art pottery by Rookwood and art glass including Lalique, Baccarat, Steuben and Tiffany. Collectibles include a military issued WWII leather bomber jacket and a rare Fada L-56 radio in green and butterscotch catalin. In furniture, a large selection of 19th and 20th century American and European includes early Philadelphia Queen Anne, Stickley Arts & Crafts and Mid Century Modern.
