Two other noteworthy artworks are a watercolor on paper rendering by Red Grooms (Am., b. 1937), titled Corsica and depicting five figures on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea, framed and dated (“7/24/94”); and an oil painting by the Russian-born French artist Oscar Rabin (b. 1928), titled Champagne in Fall Landscape (1987), showing a bottle of Champagne on a picnic blanket.

Antique clocks will feature a Federal eagle inlaid and figured mahogany tall case clock attributed to Matthew Egerton, and a lovely gilt bronze and marble mantel clock. Wonderful mirrors will include a pair of Regency gilt wood and ebonized convex girandole wall mirrors and a Federal gilt wood and églomisé (painting on glass clock face) wall mirror, made in New York circa 1815.
