One of the featured lots in the upcoming Fine Summer Estates Auction, presented by Americana Auctions, is a tall clock from David Wood. Produced in 1800, the door of this case clock has a mahogany inlay. Flowers and birds decorate the dial. The clock is powered by a sand-filled tin can weight and a pendulum rod, both details associated with Wood. One of the most prolific 19th-century clockmakers from Newburyport, Wood was best known for his tall case clocks and shelf clocks.
British maritime artist James Edward Buttersworth often captured detailed sailing ships in his works, often with elongated sails to show the boat in motion. His paintings are usually set in the New York Harbor with realistic views of the sky and sea. An example of Buttersworth’s work is among the highlights of the auction. Titled View Along the Hudson, it shows boats on a waterway with a rainbow above. A piece depicting the town of Nantucket from Impressionist painter Frank Swift Chase is also notable. Known as “the dean of Nantucket artists,” Chase settled in the town in 1920. He spent his summers in Nantucket teaching art and painting until his death.
