From vintage furniture to decorative art, William K. du Pont assembled an eclectic range of items. His collection will soon come to auction with Sotheby’s. Among the notable lots is a walnut schrank in the Queen Anne style. Queen Anne was a quintessential furniture style from the 1720s through the 1750s. It emerged during the reign of Queen Anne in England. Standing at nine feet tall, the available piece displays popular German design elements of the period. The inlays on this cabinet have traditional marquetry, which uses line engraving to produce intricate details.
The auction house will also offer a walnut tall case clock by George Crow. One of the earliest clock-makers in Delaware, Crow was active between 1740 and 1762. He had an avid passion for watch-making and continued working in the watch and clock business until his death in 1772.
