PETERBOROUGH, N.H. — October 3 was the second time The Cobbs had sold Benjamin Champney’s painting, cataloged as probably “Mt Washington from Wildcat Mountain.” The first time was in 2004 and the woman who was the underbidder at that sale succeeded this time, paying $24,000. It was a large painting, 47½ by 29½ inches, signed and dated 1875. Champney was living in North Conway at the time and Wildcat Mountain, today a popular ski area, is east of Mt Washington, just a few miles from Champney’s home.
The Cobbs’ sale included other New Hampshire paintings, silver, toys and dolls, good jewelry, Oriental rugs, some Chinese furniture, some American furniture and more. A full review will appear later.
