COLUMBUS, OHIO –
Early American fare was on offer at Garth’s on May 10-11 as the firm conducted its 13th annual Ohio Valley session. A soup plate from the Abraham Lincoln state service (shown) beat a $2/3,000 estimate to finish at $8,750. Ordered from E.V. Haughwout & Co, New York, circa 1861, the 7¾-inch diameter porcelain plate had a transfer American eagle and banner with hand painting, purple/magenta border (solferino color) and gilt rim. An Ohio sewer tile dog surprised by jumping a $600/900 expectation to bring $6,240. Attributed to George Bagnall, (circa 1860-1890), the dog sported his original ivory paint with gold-painted lock and stood 11 inches high. For information, 740-362-4771 or www.garths.com.
