The Peter Brams Collection of Important Woodlands Indian Art is the largest and most important of its kind to have been amassed in the United States. The depth of property reflects Native American creations, many of burlwood, from the 17th through 19th centuries, and is composed of more than 50 bowls and nearly 150 ladles. “Peter Brams is one of the most exciting and fearless collectors I have ever had the pleasure of meeting; he is charming, driven and incredibly educated, states Leigh Keno, president of Keno Auctions. “The evolution of Peter’s collecting interests includes contemporary paintings, Outsider Art and American Folk Art, and it was the sculpture from his American Folk Art collection that led Peter to Woodlands art. Peter refined his collection pairing down to the most critical elements of great sculpture – form, quality of execution, and surface – which is the Woodlands creative sensibility to its essence,” Keno continues.

Highlights from The Peter Brams Collection of Important Woodlands Indian Art include:

• The Thompson Family Lenni Lenape Seated Human Effigy Feast Ladle (detail)
18th century, probably first half l. 12 in. (Estimate: $40,000 - $60,000)

“I am thrilled to kick off Americana Week with an exciting Americana sale and honored to have to have been chosen to sell Peter Brams stunning and iconic collection of Woodland bowls and effigy ladles. The Brams Collection objects stand alone as works of art and beautifully complement the finest 20th century post war and contemporary art and sculpture collections; this sale is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for collectors to buy true masterpieces. The property we are offering in both sales this season is so fresh and of such exceptional quality that we are hoping buyers will find it hard to resist. We have placed very conservative pre-sale estimates on some extraordinary rare examples of fine and decorative arts,” Keno concludes.
