Auction Description

American Furniture & Decorative Arts by Skinner
Preview by appointment only by contacting us at 508.970.3200 or americana@skinnerinc.com. This November’s American Furniture and Decorative Arts is a celebration of American creativity, ingenuity, thoughtfulness, and artistic expression. Property from family collections, from estates accumulated across multiple generations, and from varied private collectors, make up the core of the auction. Within the 700 or so lots available for bidding at skinnerinc.com, there are opportunities to own a wide variety of American antiques: boldly designed examples of 18th and 19th century American Folk Art, colorfully decorated pottery made for the American market, American and English silver, and well crafted furniture made by colonial and early 19th century cabinetmakers from New England, New York, and Pennsylvania. Also featured is the Shaker Collection of Brenda and Charles R. “Chuck” Muller of Canal Winchester, Ohio, a collection peppered with interesting Shaker furniture and ephemera. Mr. Muller was an author, scholar, and pastor who, besides collecting 19th century Shaker crafts, also availed himself of Shaker-style decorative arts made by the incredibly talented people with whom he closely worked. This auction is available only over the internet. Log in or create a new account on the Skinner website to participate. Contact Us 508.970.3200 americana@skinnerinc.com Read more
