A portrait of Henry Clay (1777-1852), attributed to the School of Matthew Harris Jouett (1788-1827) (Lot 69, $30,000-50,000).

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Freeman’s American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts auction will proceed as an online auction on its originally scheduled date of April 28 at 10am. The auction includes an array of fresh-to-market works that were made in various regions along the Eastern seaboard and span centuries. The sale places significant emphasis on fine period furniture examples from New England, the Mid-Atlantic and the South; Marine Art, including sailor’s valentines, woolies, and ship paintings; Chinese Export Porcelain, including a ‘Tobacco Leaf’ service (Lots 29-39); textiles, including 18th century canvaswork; and items with important historical significance.

Notable highlights include a rare, and possibly unique, painted tinware and zinc 'Liberty' cap parade pole finial with Civil War association to the "Pratt Street Riot” (Lot 95, $15,000-25,000); a portrait of Henry Clay (1777-1852), attributed to the School of Matthew Harris Jouett (1788-1827) (Lot 69, $30,000-50,000); and a Mexican War presentation sword to Brevet Major John Frederick Roland, 2nd Regiment U.S. Artillery by Ames Mfg. Co., Cabotville, MA (Lot 89, $10,000-15,000).

The sale features The Clement Hungerford Pollen Collection (Lot 155, $30,000-50,000)— a single-owner collection of Native American clothing & accessory items, artifacts, and related ephemera. Clement Hungerford Pollen (1869-1934) documented his years in Wyoming and British Columbia with photographs, written memoirs and by collecting Native North American-made objects and fossils. His extensive correspondence includes letters from family friend Neville Chamberlain and Theodore Roosevelt. The collection is a rare historic record of a specific North American time and place: of Western Plains life, exploration, the life and arts of Native peoples, and the transformation of the West.

As is custom, the sale also includes a strong selection of objects made and used in Pennsylvania. The sale is led by an impressively carved Chippendale walnut tall case clock (Lot 23, $50,000-80,000) with works by Daniel Rose (Reading, PA, 1749-1827). Also on offer is period furniture, silver, & decorative objects from Philadelphia as well as regional examples from Chester County.
