A circa-1839 New England needlework sampler, a Colina ceramic vessel, and a tulip applique quilt dating to circa 1910 will clamor for top lot status at Jasper52’s next Americana, Folk Art, and Outsider Art auction, which will be held on Thursday, October 13, starting at 6 pm Eastern time. As always, the sale is curated by the impeccable Clifford Wallach, an expert on tramp art, folk art and Americana. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
A Jasper52 Americana, Folk Art, and Outsider Art sale isn’t worthy of its title without a strong selection of needlework samplers, and the October 13 sale contains a real winner. The silk-on-linen piece, created circa 1839 in Shelburne, New Hampshire, is probably the work of Caroline H. Ingalls, the oldest daughter of Robert and Rowena (Hills) Ingalls. It is a family record sampler that gives the birth dates and marriage date for her parents, followed by the birth dates of her older brother, Russell; herself; and four younger siblings. It sports a border of stitched flowers and leaves and carries an estimate of $2,000-$2,500.
