Crocker Farm To Hold 15th Anniversary Auction On July 20
Incredible Pennsylvania Figural Redware Dog With Monkey Rider One Of Many Special Items To Be Sold
One of many interesting items consigned will be a large-sized redware figure of a dog with monkey rider of Pennsylvania origin, ca. 1850-80. This figural sculpture includes an ambitiously decorated base with pinwheel-shaped floral motifs. The dog features fine detail, including an open mouth with tongue and stamp-decorated basket holding a jug. The monkey, expressive in his raised arm stance, includes impressed buttons to the front and tail of its coat. Among the best Pennsylvania redware animal sculptures to come to auction in recent years, it descended in an Adams County, Pa., family to the current owner. Check the companys website for updates and photos of many other highlighted items to be in this sale.
