Triumphant Grace: Important Americana from the Collection of Barbara and Arun SinghJan 25, 2020 10:00 EST
The Americana genre explores the charm and nostalgia of the country’s past, from paintings and illustrations of rural life and factories to the work of self-taught artists and handmade crafts. Sotheby’s will highlight a selection of Americana in the upcoming Triumphant Grace auction, featuring the collection of Barbara and Arun Singh.
Included in the sale is a Simon Willard tall case clock from around 1795. Willard was a popular and celebrated U.S. clockmaker during the late 1700s and early 1800s. This mahogany clock features eight-day, calendar, and moon movements. The piece remains in its original condition, including the pendulum rod, which is painted to match the dial mat. Another item highlighted in the auction is a 1775 Chippendale-carved chest of drawers. The cherrywood bonnet-top chest stands 82 inches tall and shows 11 drawers with brass handles on its front. Several vintage portraits, a pair of Samuel Task Fire Society fire buckets, and an American eagle wall plaque are also featured. To view all 229 lots and place a bid, visit Sotheby’s.
