The auction will be headlined by property from a private Southern New Jersey collection, the NAMITS collection, property from descendants of the New York and Philadelphia Clinedinst family, property descended in the Fulton, Ludlow, Livingston and Phillips families, property from the estate of John Strawbridge Lloyd of Philadelphia and, lastly, a small selection of Rev War-era property approved for deaccession by the Fraunces Tavern Museum in New York City.
A headliner of the auction is one of the earliest known paintings of Martin Van Buren, by Thomas Sully. Initialed and dated 1810, the painting descended in the estate of John Strawbridge Lloyd.

The fine art category includes a bold yet refined 16th/17th century British School Portrait of a Gentleman, one that serves as a window into the life of Elizabethan aristocracy. For those who enjoy the Old Masters, there is a small selection of paintings from private collections. There are also a number of 19th century American and European paintings from a private Southern New Jersey collection, led by a tonalist and impressionistic landscape by Emile Gruppe (1896-1978). The painting perfectly captures the New England landscape.
