Where form meets function

Some quality lots this weekend at Skinner for the American Furniture and Decorative Arts sale. The preview is open all week at 63 Park Plaza, Boston. A few items that caught the eye skimming through the catalog include an inlaid anglers box dating 1891 (above), a Boston Block Front slant-lid desk, and a Civil War era soldier decoy. For those into timepieces there is a healthy selection of wall and shelf clocks from New England makers up for grabs too.

Check out our other picks after the jump and go to Skinner to view the catalog in full.
