Christie’s Important American Furniture and Folk Art Auction

Christie’s (New York) Important American Furniture and Folk Art Auction rolls through January 25, 2010. As one might expect, there is some important furniture on offer (notably lot #346, a Queen Anne maple stool from Philadelphia). Also in the mix are some handsome game boards and a molded statue of General Marquis de Lafayette. The small sculpture is of late 19th-century American origin.

A personal favorite from the preview is lot #109 (above). A sailor-made woolwork picture inscribed “New Bedford,” the piece is wonderfully detailed and dates to the 19th-century.

View some game boards and the handsome Mr. Lafayette after the jump. Enjoy the full catalog at this link.
