A wildlife enthusiast, John James Audubon was one of the most celebrated American natural history artists. He was devoted to his work and would travel to explore, observe, and draw the birds of North America. Between 1827 and 1838, he produced 435 life-size watercolors of a variety of birds in Birds of America. The upcoming Sporting and Military Auction, presented by Merrill’s Auctioneers & Appraisers, features several examples of Audubon’s work, including Swallow-Tailed Hawk and Little Owl.
The auction offers 400 lots that range from furniture and decorative art to firearms and jewelry. Standing out among them is a Rolex Oysterdate men’s wristwatch. A brand known for its contemporary design, Rolex introduced the first waterproof case for a wristwatch in 1926. With a waterproof crown, the piece is built to protect the insides from the elements. Another item of interest is an oak sideboard by Gustav Stickley. This piece reflects the Arts and Crafts movement that had emerged in the late 19th century.
