The well-known and highly regarded Rhode Island collector Stanley Weiss collected for over 30 years. During that time, he developed a keen and discerning eye for the early American aesthetic, with an emphasis on pieces from the Queen Anne through the Neoclassical periods. His passion and enthusiasm for quality craftsmanship and wood are evident in each fine item he acquired.
Highlights from the fourth installment include a superb and rare labeled card table by Samuel and Joseph Rawson, Jr. of Providence, R.I. The Rawsons were brothers following in their father's footsteps in the cabinetmaking trade and were active between 1826-1852. The card table is estimated at $2,000-$4,000.
The collection also includes a six-leg Queen Anne mahogany dropleaf dining table, likely made in Rhode Island, with slipper feet (est. $1,500-$3,000)
Other furniture includes a delicately inlaid bowfront chest of drawers from New England (est. $800-$1,200)
The sale also has a selection of 17th century English furniture pieces such as chests, settles, stools and chairs. Continuing to more Modern and Contemporary furniture, the auction also features a black leather upholstered Eames chair and ottoman. Other contemporary pieces include a Merriweather Dog Bed Company custom Hermes Box bed, plus other intriguing offerings.
