Auctioneers, which has been hosting successful Internet sales since the start of the pandemic but is looking forward to resuming live, in-gallery events.

“This will be yet another great auction with an eclectic mix of antiques, fine art, furniture, jewelry, and more,” said Kevin Bruneau, the president and owner of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, adding, “Hopefully this will be our last time with an online-only sale. We would love to get our crowd back into the gallery.” Bruneau said telephone and absentee bids would also be accepted.

An immaculate, hand-carved Alaskan Inuit walrus ivory chess set, the pieces modeled after native fauna with exquisite calcification, carries a pre-sale estimate of $3,000-$5,000. The set, with a case, was purchased in San Francisco in 1903 and includes a note that reads, “Chessmen. They were made to order in Alaska of walrus…by an Indian for a consul there, from his ideas.” The pawns are local animals, the walrus heads are bishops and bears (just two) are the knights.

A monumental early 20th century bronze Art Nouveau three-basin fountain, 92 inches tall by 62 ½ inches wide, should realize $2,000-$3,000. The fountain has a figural central column depicting a bare breasted woman sitting atop an eagle with wings outstretched, while she carries an acanthus leaf cornucopia on her shoulder. The top basin is decorated with flowers and wheat sheaths and the fountain itself is supported by a decorative base.

An oil on canvas maritime ship painting attributed to Thomas Buttersworth (English, 1768-1842), depicting a sailing vessel cutting through choppy waves, is expected to bring $1,000-$2,000. The 20 inch by 36 inch painting (canvas, less frame) has an old label on verso that’s marked, “Schooner Yacht Defender by Buttersworth.” Thomas Buttersworth was an English seaman of the Napoleonic wars period who became a respected marine painter.

An 1885 first-edition copy of the Mark Twain classic book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, published by Charles L. Webster and Company (N.Y.), should change hands for $1,000-$1,500. The book has a green cloth cover (an indicator of its being a first-edition), while several typos and other printing errors reveal that the book’s proofreader may have been asleep at the switch.

An oil on board tonalist winter scene by John Fabian Carlson (N.Y./Colo./Sweden, 1875-1945), 8 inched by 10 inches (sight, less frame) and artist signed “J. F. Carlson” lower left, carries an estimate of $1,000-$2,000.

1884 Winchester Cartridge Display Board Rings Up $100,300 in Miller & Miller’s Auction, June 5th

Three 19th century American cartridge display boards – two from Winchester (1887 and 1884) and one from Union Metallic Cartridge (1880s) – sold for a combined $241,900 in an online-only Canadiana & Sporting auction held June 5th by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. The sale grossed $496,219, including the buyer’s premium.

All prices quoted in this report are in Canadian dollars.

The abovementioned cartridge display boards were the top lots of the auction. All three were lithographed cardboard, with an applied representation of Winchester’s line of ammunition. Few survived intact due to their monumental size and the fact they were often displayed in store windows and areas exposed to light. They are highly prized by collectors.

The Winchester 1884 cartridge display board was the top lot of the auction overall, breezing past its pre-sale estimate of $20,000-$25,000 to finish at a robust $100,300. It measured 28 inches by 38 inches. Runner-up honors went to the 1887 Winchester board, which had the same estimate and brought $88,500. The Union Metallic Cartridge Company board placed third, at $53,100.

The auction was headlined by the lifetime collections of Don and Joyce Blyth – an astounding assemblage of stoneware, sporting advertising, decoys, powder tins, soda water bottles, ginger beer bottles, beer bottles, Canadiana and more. In all, 289 lots came up for bid, with 99 percent of them finding new owners. Over half of the lots sold met or exceeded their pre-sale estimates.

Don and Joyce Blyth were both avid collectors until Don’s recent passing. Included in the auction was a nearly comprehensive collection of Guelph merchant stoneware and bottles, among other pieces of Guelph, Ontario memorabilia. Also on offer were Don’s collections of Canadian gun powder tins, decoys, sporting and firearms advertising and other items.

“I interviewed Don three days before his death,” said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “What he had was museum quality material. I asked him, ‘Why did you not donate it?’ He said, ‘Let the people enjoy it.’ His intention has now been realized. The stoneware pieces sold strongly, and the rarest of the offering crushed the high estimates. All in all, it was a great sale.”

Joyce Blyth, who survives her husband and who attended the auction, said, “Never in our wildest dreams did we think that the cartridge boards had such value. Don would have been thrilled.”

Following are additional highlights from the auction. Internet bidding was facilitated by and the Miller & Miller website: A total of 321 registered bidders placed 5,838 bids. Thirty percent of all lots sold surpassed even their high estimate figures. All prices quoted are inclusive of an 18 percent buyer’s premium.

Stoneware was led by a rare three-gallon jug produced in the 1870s by F. P. Goold and featuring a race horse decoration in cobalt slip. It was made during Goold’s tenure at the Brantford pottery in Canada ($20,060). Also, a two-gallon jug debossed, “Robt. Rutherford Guelph”, boasting an outstanding bird decoration, gaveled for $7,080. The jug appears on the cover of Joyce Blyth’s book, Jugs & Crocks of the Guelph Merchants.

Another F. P. Goold jug, this one a two-gallon example, 14 inches tall and debossed, “F. P. Goold Brantford”, having a few very small scratches or scrapes mostly on the front of the jug, changed hands for $5,605. Also, an extremely rare Watson Brothers miniature jug, standing just 3 ½ inches tall and debossed, “Compliments of Watson Bros. Guelph, Ont.”, produced at the Brantford pottery during W.E. Welding’s tenure, went for $4,130.

Tops in the decoys category was a rare and important early gunning longtailed duck, circa 1880s-1940s, likely made by either Jimmy or William Clark of Toronto and Keswick, Ontario ($8,260); and a first quarter 20th century Burlington Bay canvasback by Ivar Gustav Fernlund (Hamilton, Ont., 1881-1933), hollow, with a structurally excellent bottom board, beautiful wet combed paint and a bold and elegant high head ($7,670).

A first quarter 20th century hollow bluebill decoy by Henry (Hen) Freeborn (Hamilton, Ont., 1882-1959), in excellent gunning condition with strong paint and winner of a CDOCA Best Bluebill contest, fetched $4,720. The bottles category was led by a W. Atkinson, Guelph C.W. (Canada West) primitive pint stone ginger beer bottle, believed to be the only one in existence and made sometime in the late 19th century, sold for $4,130.

Returning to sporting collectibles, a Canadian Dominion Cartridge Company exhibition board, wood with applied ammunition, reportedly made for a display at the 1901 Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo, N.Y., achieved $9,440; and a 1902 American Winchester double “W” cartridge display board, featuring detailed lithographed images of the ammunition instead of the applied cartridges, 39 ¾ inches by 57 ½ inches, hit $8,260.

An early 20th century Canadian Dominion Ammunition store counter display made from painted chalkware, originally from the Bright, Ontario general store, marked “Petrucci Freres Statuaires Montreal”, sold for $6,490. Also, two Stelco Sample Shot display cases, one from the 1930s and one from the 1950s, both displaying the various sizes of lead shot manufactured by The Steel Company of Canada, Ltd. (Stelco), knocked down for $3,835.
