Folk portraits, quilts and pottery enliven Jasper52’s Aug. 4 auction

A Juan Quezada Celado Mata Ortiz jar with a snake motif, a circa-1850s quilt with a tree border, and an 1890 folk portrait of a man identified as “Cy” will likely earn top lot status at Jasper52’s next Americana, Folk Art, and Outsider Art auction, which will be held on Thursday, August 4 at 6 pm Eastern time. As always, the sale is curated by Clifford Wallach, an expert in tramp art, folk art and Americana. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Other items in the 454-lot sale include a circa-1930s Frigidaire ice bucket in green frosted glass; an early 19th-century farmhouse corner cupboard, made from cherry wood; a wide range of Native American objects and artifacts, including several sets of children’s moccasins; a cast iron lobster-form boot jack, painted bright red; blue spatterware plates; and a Staffordshire bust of George Washington.

1890 folk art portrait of a man, est. $900-$1,100
