JULY 19-20

Marine Sale

Scrimshaws con­tin­ued to make waves at El­dred’s, as dur­ing its July 19 and 20 Marine Sale four lots broke six fig­ures, in­clud­ing a Naval Mon­u­ment En­graver that achieved $396,000.The price, which shat­tered its pre­sale ex­pec­ta­tion of $20,000 to $30,000, was just $60,000 shy of the world auc­tion record for a scrimshaw that the auc­tion house set last July.

The auc­tion house also saw strong re­sults for paint­ings dur­ing its sale. Mon­tague Daw­son’s The Wind’s High­way – The ‘Bonita’ of Bos­ton, achieved $60,000 against a pre­sale es­ti­mate of $40,000 to $60,000, while An­ton Otto Fis­cher’s Furl­ing the sails (est. $4/6,000) brought $9,000.A por­trait of the ves­sel Ber­muda by Antonio Ja­cob­sen also was notable, sell­ing within its es­ti­mate at $18,000.
