DOWNINGTOWN, PENN. — Pook & Pook Auctions offered “100 Years: The Kindig Legacy,” a two-session sale February 8-9, with 730 lots that was more than 98 percent by lot. The sale’s highest lot — earned with a $30,000 result on the first day of the sale — was a circa 1770 Chippendale carved mahogany high chest base labeled by Gerrard Hopkins (1742-1800) with later bench-made upper section that had carving attributed to William Brampton. Not only had the piece been exhibited in a long-term loan at the Baltimore Museum of Art but it was illustrated in Baltimore Museum of Art’s American Furniture 1680-1880 from the Collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art. It had been estimated at $10/18,000 and found a new home with a private collector who had never before participated in an auction at Pook & Pook. Prices quoted include the buyer’s premium as reported by the auction house; watch for a more extensive sale review in a future issue.
