NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's October 8, 2019 auction will showcase fine American furniture from the Queen Anne and Chippendale through Federal and Classical styles. Decorative arts include silver, ceramics, mirrors, folk art, quilts and samplers, in addition to Chinese Export porcelain and rugs. Also featured are Audubon, Currier Ives and topographical prints. 

American Paintings

This sale category is Doyle's premier venue for American paintings of the 19th and 20th centuries, including fine examples of portraiture; Hudson River, Western and regional landscapes; marine paintings and still lifes. An influential member of the Hudson River School and friend to artist Thomas Cole, John Casilear (1811-1893) worked as an engraver and was a student and assistant to Asher B. Durand, who influenced Casilear with his attention to detail. Property of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this landscape of the Catskills is a wonderful example of Casilear’s late work and a subject for which he is well known (est. $15,000-25,000).

Furniture & Decorative Arts

A pair of refined and elegant Federal card tables, attributed to Duncan Phyfe, were part of a suite of furniture made for Thomas Cornell Pearsall of New York City in the early 19th century. The banded central tablet, reeded legs and inverted baluster feet are exemplary of Phyfe’s best work (est. $8,000-12,000). A pair of 19th century classical carved caryatid figures on faux marble bases hold aloft acanthus and palm leaf planters (est. $2,000-4,000).


A rare Tiffany & Co. sterling silver ice bowl, circa 1875-1885, by Tiffany designer Edward C. Moore reflects two important events in American history – the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867 and the opening of Japan to the West in the 1870s. Serving chilled drinks from such a magnificent piece of silver would have been a luxury reserved for society’s elite (est. $25,000-35,000). A circa 1909 International Silver Company sterling silver punch bowl epitomizes the Art Nouveau style with its voluptuous curves. Property of a Florida Lady, the punch bowl is ornamented with mer-figures in waves, gulls and seaweed, and rests on snail-form feet (est. $7,000-10,000).
