The upcoming Cowan’s Auctions online sale showcases a selection of American, English, and European artifacts. It particularly features an oil painting by Henry Faulker, a prolific American artist recognized for his colorful paintings and odd habits. His practice of bringing a bourbon-drinking goat to parties and shows contributed to his eccentric image. Titled Village Scene, this piece shows Faulkner’s native Kentucky.
Another lot available at the auction is a set of three gilt wine coolers. Dating back to the 1830s, each piece features fine foliate, lily decoration, and ducal crest engravings. A motto, Prest d’Accomplir, is also written on each piece. A Paul Sawyier watercolor painting is on offer as well. Titled Bid Eddy, this work is framed and signed. Other fine arts, furniture, porcelain, silver, rugs, and timepieces round out the offerings. Visit Bidsquare to browse the entire catalog or to place a bid.
