Founded in 1886, Newcomb College was the first women’s coordinate college within an American university. The school, which was famous for its pottery, provided an opportunity for women to acquire industrial skills during the postwar period. The embroidery curriculum, introduced later, offered a quality standard similar to the college’s pottery program. The upcoming Revere Auctions event presents a Newcomb College embroidered linen Arts & Crafts sewing bag. The embroidery on the linen base depicts a landscape scene of forested hills in simple stitches.
Another highlight of the auction is a steel patio table from Sol LeWitt. The geometric pattern table with a center plaque features a concentric semi-circle design in shades of blue, gray, and red. Also showcased is a Cartier 1.7-carat brilliant-cut yellow diamond ring and a Prairie School Arts & Crafts hardwood chair by George Mann Niedecken. Those interested in the auction can also consider a selection of Lalique glassware, Rhead pottery wares, Sir Richard Burton books, and Indonesian Javanese Golek puppets.
