As the first day wraps up with high spirits, the second day of Thomaston Place Auction starts with a flawless oil on canvas by John Stobart. An artist known for his love of on-site paintings. The painting sits right at the top of the charts of featured items with the highest estimate of $100,000, of all the three days. Likewise, you can also find a seamless fire helmet. It is a 1851 Boston presentation, engraved with a silver plate that reads “Presented to Captain Charles Carter”. Surmounted by a fully dimensional reclining greyhound dog at the top, the hat screams class and pride. Other items such as an early Burmese bronze head of Buddha Cakyamuni, and Ivory Triptych from the 18th century are not to be missed.
