but of excellent quality – in particular, a selection of Mount Vernon by Hickory inlaid cherry furniture.
“Mount Vernon by Hickory mixes beautifully with period furniture because traditional methods are used in crafting their pieces. This particular brand is very popular with furniture buyers who attend our sales,” said Cindy Stephenson.
The auction will ring in the New Year with two beautiful clocks that came from a residence in the Poconos. A handsome 1903 J.E. Caldwell cherry grandfather clock with moon dial and paw feet will cross the auction block, as will an early 19th century Hy (Henry) Bower & Feste Swome walnut miniature tall case clock. The latter timepiece, which stands a diminutive 50 inches high, has been garnering considerable attention from clock enthusiasts. Each of the two clocks is estimated at $600-$1,000.
