ell I guess I crossed another line....now it's coursing or dog racing or something....I'm not sure what the sport is here...But heck of a pick up I thought on this print...Got it couple Sundays ago at the Hillsborough Antiques Show...Swept the whole show and found two items that had my attention...a c1890 12" Heubach bisque figure of a baseball player for $375.00...and this caricature print of monkey jockeys on greyhounds for $450.00...I really didn't want to spend the money but $375.00 seemed pretty fair for the Heubach and you don't see them in person often...usually in auctions...it originally came as a pair with a matching batter...made in Germany...

 

20161106_150903.jpg (197542 bytes) 20161106_150908.jpg (167883 bytes)


The dealer selling the Monkey Jockey print deals in nothing but prints...and his booth is full of framed ones...the whole booth is very impressive, pretty much everything is mostly pre WWI...The minute I saw it I was taken back...I think if I saw this at a tony book show I'd expect it to be priced around $800.00 - $1,200.00...I asked where it came from...dealer said he found it in a terrible junkie frame falling apart...I think he said the frame was yellow...

I sat down on a bench and pondered which if either to buy...I liked the print a lot more and I figured I'd see more Heubachs but the print is much more rare...I've never seen another and can't find one on the internet...Though did find a couple of similar ones...anyway...show was about to close and made an offer on the print and they took it...One of those kinds of purchases when the dust settles you're really glad you pulled the trigger!!!...Today I think I found someone in England who I think may know something about it...All takes time which I need more of!...And if any readers out there know about this print

SHOW TROPHY

Show Held at

- WON BY -

Owned by Mr. Willian George Smartt

Willian George Smartt, 

Owner Smartt's Punch

 

 

I_Block_Chrome Y.png (802 bytes)spotted this c1894 bulldog trophy at the 2012 Hillsborough Antiques Show in San Mateo CA. The dealer was asking $1,500.00. I ended up buying a rare c1890 Bicycle Humidor at the same show for $1,000.00 so couldn't afford it. But it haunted me afterwards. Later I emailed the dealer and said I'd buy it for the $1,500.00 if she still had it at the next Hillsborough Show...When I saw her at the next show she said it sold to a judge at another show in Fresno.

 

The bulldog originated in England in the 1500's and were bred for the sport of "bull baiting". Bull baiting was outlawed in England in the early 1800's by passage of the Cruelty to Animals Act 1835. The first Bulldog show put on by the South London Bulldog Club at the Royal Aquarium Westminster was in 1873. 

 

Poking around the internet I located some published references to the show, seen below. Also below, I was also able to locate a biography of the sculptor of this trophy, a Mr. Richard Hewitt Moore. I also found an 1895 reference to a bulldog sired by Smartt's Punch, named "Baron Killarney" whelped (born) Sept. 28th 1893, that was brought to the United States. A person named E.K. Austin of New York City was listed as the owner breeder in the 1896 American Kennel Club Stud Book, Volume 12

Smartt Punch's Offspring in U.S.A

 

Sculptor of Trophy:

Richard Hewitt Moore (R H Moore) was from Northleach in Oxfordshire and on leaving school he apprenticed as a wood engraver but eventually gave up this medium feeling the technique too confining.


He took up drawing as a profession, studying the figure and portraiture, then moving on to animal studies before almost exclusively devoting himself to dogs.


In common with the likes of Arthur Wardle, Cecil Aldin, Louis Wain and others, Moore’s early years as a commercial artist were spent recording scenes at dog shows, livestock shows and country pursuits for such publications as The Stock-Keeper, Sporting and Dramatic News and The Illustrated London News.


He illustrated numerous books, including C H Lane’s All About Dogs published in 1900. 
The 87 illustrations of the celebrated champions of the time are the most complete source for Moore’s illustrative work.


Moore was also an accomplished sculptor who specialised in trophies. The Great Dane Club has a challenge trophy with a bronze cropped Great Dane mounted standing on the plinth and the English Setter Club a particularly impressive group that was awarded for best brace at a trial. This features a Setter and Pointer in naturalistic pose, cast in silver and made by the Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company in 1896. 

 


Possibly the most impressive trophy he sculpted depicted the final of the 1890 Waterloo Cup, Fullerton beating N Dunn’s Downpour, see above

C1907 OIL PAINTING OF 

JAMES J. CORBETT

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT 

BOXING CHAMPION 1892-1897

 Sold for $1,920.00 

incl. premium in Legendary Auctions

 

This should more aptly be under Carlton's "Latest One That Got Away". I found this 1907 oil painting of James J. Corbett at the last minute. I had received the inaugural Legendary Auctions catalog about a week before it closed. However I'd been so tied up with my new Sports Antique of the Week feature that I never had time to look thru it. Although I had done a cursory of the auction on-line, I missed this painting. On April 30, 2009 I was in a restaurant thumbing thru the catalog as I ate when I came across it about 1:00PM the first day of the auction. It got my attention enough that I scrambled to the front of the catalog to see when the close date was. To my surprise it was closing that day.  I called right there on the spot and asked what lot they were on. The guy explained it wasn't a live floor auction and the painting wouldn't close until late that night....he said the latest bid was $750.00, and so I hit it at $800.00 and immediately got out bid by a left ceiling bid. I hit it again at $900 and to my surprise was top bidder....that night I had to hit it again at $1,300.00. But got shot down later....that's where I folded. With bidders premium it sold for $1,920.00. 

 

I have no regrets, it just didn't hit the gotta have it level for me to keep chasing it. However I will say any good  boxing painting from that early is very rare, they hardly exist. Much less one of a world champion. I've never seen one before. And the quality is formidable...enlarge it and look at the face and hair....that's a heck of a painting! Plus it has a period/likely original frame. There is no mention of an artist signature in the catalog; but not having a signature can be overlooked if the work is of exceptional quality, and this painting would qualify.

James Corbett won the World Heavyweight Championship from John L. Sullivan Sept. 7, 1892 in New Orleans Louisiana. The bout was also historical for being the first World Championship fought under Marquess of Queensberry Rules, and for being the first time boxing gloves were worn.

This is the greatest basketball painting I've ever seen. I've not even heard of anything like it, so it may be the world's greatest. The colors, the lighting, the size, the realism of the environment, are what galvanize it. The back says it all regarding it's age, if you click the photo on the left. I believe the elevated bleachers are typical of  Y.M.C.A's in the eastern United States. Interestingly, there were only three bidders...my piddly $1,800.00, plus two floor bidders, one for $3,500.00 and the $4,250.00. This is a classic example of greatness I like to bring you on this site. -Carlton

PORCELAIN DECANTER PITCHER 

12 INCHES TALL

I was the under-bidder on this Yale baseball pitcher at $888.88, but got sniped. I have a mug with the same illustration, so I believe it originally came as a set with  probably 6 or so cups. The seller advised in the listing there was no makers mark, however my mug is marked on the bottom the "Laughlin Art China" I don't recall ever seeing this pitcher before, so I know it's rare. I believe I have seen another mug like mine for sale though, I think it was on eBay. What a great piece. Sure I wish I'd gotten it! Click here for more detailed photos

I attended the Grass Valley Old West Antiques Show, in Grass Valley California on Saturday May 13th 2006. The show is incredible and one of the best antiques shows in the country. I was too pressed for time to do a story on this years show, however I'll post a photo of the best thing I saw...an 1899 bicycle race poster from Carson City Nevada. I was so taken I forgot to measure it, but it was big, framed it was about 40 inches tall by 30 wide. It sold to renowned collector Peter Sidlow of Las Vegas for $4,500.00. It was not only the best thing I saw, but probably the best bicycle poster I've ever seen. Congrats Peter!

Circa 1890 Edwin J. Gillies 

football coffee tin at top center

 

I did find one item at the show....a circa 1890 Edwin J. Gillies coffee tin with an illustration of a football game. My friend John Bounaguidi was set up, and had gotten gotten two of these tins, one white, one red, out a a Hunt's auctions a year or so ago. He had the red one at the show and offered it to me for what he gave, which was $considerable$. I think it's a little faded, as I've seen another red one that wasn't. I couldn't make up my mind, so John told me to take it home and see how it works in my collection. I worked it in with my other tins and it looks pretty nice, plus my girl friend Barbara thinks I should get it, so darn I guess I'll have to now...it'$ only money!

 

If you can believe it, the Gillies Coffee Company is still in business, and they have a website with they're history. Seems they were a major player in the coffee business in New York City starting in 1840. Click here to read they're interesting story.

 

I've only seen a few examples of this tin in 18 years, and always wanted it. I'd sort of like to wait for one in a little better condition, but they're so rare I suppose I better bite the bullet while this one's available. Not only are the football graphics really nice, but it's American...not Canadian, not bloody English! On top of that it's one of the best depictions, of 19th century American football used for advertising, and I think it's the only tin with 19th century football.
