A lighthouse painting from Paul Lipp is a key lot in the upcoming Maritime & Estates Auction, presented by Americana Auctions. Born in Connecticut, Lipp traveled around the small towns and boroughs of New England with his camera in search of the perfect subject. As he said, “I never know what I am going to paint. I am dictated to by the scene.” The available Photorealist painting shows a sailor boy on a post in front of the Brant Point Nantucket lighthouse.
The upcoming sale will offer nearly 500 lots, including furniture, decorative art, and more. Among the leading items is a Fayetteville rifle from 1863. Produced at the Confederate States Arsenal in Fayetteville, these rifles were produced using the captured machinery and tooling from Harpers Ferry. However, in 1865, production came to a halt when the arsenal was seized. The available rifle features a wooden stock, double-banding, and chambering for the .58 ball. An antique Chinese trade painting will also be presented. The 19th-century piece by an anonymous painter shows a tea hong with numerous figures.
