A Record-Setting $108,000 Charles Coffin Nantucket Curlew Tops Copley Sale of Decoys and Sporting Art
Copley's first live-streamed auction was a success. The sale, consisting of 296 lots, was 94% sold by lot and realized $957,000. The auction achieved several world record prices, thanks in part to the more than 150 new bidders registered to participate in the scaled-down one-day sale. A new record was set for Charles Coffin when the O'Brien-Nelson Hollow Nantucket Curlew sold for $108,000, making it the top lot of the sale. The top painting lot was a quail hunting watercolor by Ogden M. Pleissner, which landed at $37,200. Thomas Aquinas Daly's Electric Mountain blew past its high estimate to hammer at $16,800, setting a new world record for the artist. For more details of
