Colonial furniture to carnival games: Hindman's American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts Auction
A Gothic Revival Carved Mahogany Tall Case No. 22. Astronomical Regulator. E. Howard and Co., Boston, Massachusetts. Estimate: $60,000 - $80,000.

CINCINNATI, OH.- Hindman Auctions will celebrate four centuries of American artists and craftsmen in its March 10 – 11 American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts auction. Across two days, Hindman will offer folk art, glass, stoneware, furniture, antique advertising, silver, music players, and coin-operated carnival and casino machines from private and institutional collections.

After setting the auction record for the form just six months ago with a $956,000 sale, Hindman is once again honored to present an Andrew Clemens sand bottle (lot 297; estimate: $100,000 - $150,000) at auction. This spectacular bottle stands 10.5 inches tall, nearly two inches taller than the record-setting bottle from September 2021, and features a label reading “Pictured Rock Sand, Put Up By Andrew Clemens, Deaf-Mute, McGregor, Iowa” inside the bottle under the stopper. Dated just five years before his death, both the size of the bottle and the placement of the label are highly unusual for Clemens, but is consistent with his constant evolution as an artist as his mastery of the form allowed him to make more and more intricate examples.

Alongside the Clemens bottle on the March 10 session of the auction will be folk-art portraiture, nineteenth-century landscape paintings, brass and pewter candlesticks, glass articles, including flasks from the George S. McKearin collection, and notable pieces of Queen Anne, Chippendale, Federal and Classical furniture. A trio of remarkable tall case clocks are expected to be among the highlights on the day. A Gothic Revival carved mahogany E. Howard & Co. tall case No. 22 astronomical regulator (lot 183; estimate: $60,000 - $80,000) is expected to be the top lot of the group, although a colossal 126-inch Renaissance revival carved walnut tall case regulator clock, made for Chicago watchmaker J.S. Townsend (lot 184; estimate: $30,000 - $50,000) and a Philadelphia William and Mary walnut tall case clock (lot 2; estimate: $10,000 - $20,000) are also expected to draw significant attention from bidders.

The March 11 session will offer an impressive lineup of advertising signs, coffee mills, weathervanes, country furniture, papier-mache masks by Goerge Roether made for Disney Studios, garden sculpture, and music players along with two remarkable private collections. The session will feature 70 lots of script-painted stoneware from scarce Ohio makers, as well as sewer tile and stoneware birdhouses from the Collection of William Giermann, and 50 lots of an eclectic assortment of coin-operated carnival and casino machines from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Lee South, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The March 10 and 11 auction will occur at Hindman’s Cincinnati location beginning at 10 am ET on both days. The March 10 session will sell lots 1 – 335 while lots 336 – 681 will sell on March 11.
