NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s unveiled further highlights from their 2019 Americana Week auctions in New York.

Led by An Important Scott Family Chippendale Carved & Figured Mahogany Dressing Table, Cabinetwork Possibly by Thomas Affleck (1740-1795); Carving Attributed to James Reynolds (c. 1736-1794), Philadelphia, Circa 1770, the two-session sale of Important Americana on 17 and 20 January is distinguished by many notable works from distinguished American private collections and institutions, as well as fine furniture, decorative arts, folk art, silver, Chinese export ceramics, prints, historic maps, books and manuscripts.

On 19 January, Sotheby’s will present The Collection of Anne H. & Frederick Vogel III – a dedicated sale that will offer one of the finest assemblages of early Americana and early English pottery, which has remained off the market for nearly 30 years. The collection encompasses furniture and decorative arts from early American colonial life and includes exemplary pieces of Pilgrim century and William and Mary furniture, as well as one of the greatest collections ever assembled of early English delftware. The Vogels also acquired exceptional examples of 17th-century English silver, 16th- and 17th-century brass lighting, English and American needlework, French and Indian powder horns, and early colonial American maps.

The week of sales concludes on 24 January with a dedicated offering of Fine Manuscripts and Printed Americana, comprising a remarkable group of highly important and valuable historical manuscripts, books, maps, and artifacts spanning more than five centuries.

Works from all three sales are now on view in Sotheby’s York Avenue galleries, alongside the dedicated auctions of furniture and decorative objects from the Collection of Nelson & Happy Rockefeller (18 January) and the Important American Folk Art Collection of David Teiger (20 January).
