The Primitives & Americana Auction offered by Bunch Auctions will include strong and quirky examples of American antique collectibles. The highlight of this auction is an 1809 needlework sampler by Kezia Burrough from the West-Town boarding school. Embroidered with a delicate and moving poem, this piece offers a careful view into a time gone by.
The auction also offers an early example of Pennsylvania Redware pottery, tracing the incorporation of German techniques into American sculpture. One item displaying this style shows a powerful lion standing over a bird, carefully carved and detailed with manganese highlights and vent holes throughout. A historical blue platter representing Pickett’s charge in the Civil War is a notable piece by Bennett Pottery. Adorned with the portrait medallions of General Robert E. Lee and others, the transferware platter is a true masterpiece from a pioneer of American pottery.
Period and country furniture, antique clocks, ornamentally textured stoneware, and more help to support this significant auction. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bunch Auctions.
