Wiederseim says the acrylics will go for amounts from a few hundred dollars to as much as $5,000 for an illustration for a story on the Galapagos Islands.
The pictures are among 275 lots in the auction, which begins at 6 p.m. in the Pickering Ballroom of the Holiday Inn on Route 100, Lionville. Inspection is 2 p.m. to sale time.
The top price in the auction is likely to go for an antique tall case clock made in Maryland and signed by Thomas Elliot. It should sell for between $8,000 and $12,000. According to Wiederseim, it belonged to a descendant of Edgar Allen Poe. It has a bell flower inlay, pierced fretwork bonnet, and, of course, a pendulum.
Other items include a 75-inch pond model sailboat that should sell for $1,000 to $1,500; two autographed photos of President John F. Kennedy, being sold as a single set; and a signed A.J. Munnings print depicting a race horse and titled Humorist. It should sell for $900 to $1,200. For more information, call 610-363-1213.
Lambertville sale. The furniture for cozy quarters will be offered by Charles A. Whitaker Auction Co. at a sale beginning at 10 a.m. next Saturday at the Lambertville Auction Center on Route 29.
The 700 lots are predominantly from the estate of Alfred J. Andrews Jr., a New York interior decorator from the 1930s to the 1970s who spent his last days in Hattertown, Conn. He was an extensive traveler, and most of the furnishings and paintings that will be sold are from England and the continent.
Much of the furniture that will be offered is diminutive. A Welsh dresser, which Whitaker expects to sell for $2,000, is five feet wide.
The top price in the sale, about $12,000, is likely to go for a painting by a R. Eguesquiza, a Spanish artist.
The auction is being held in Lambertville, a new location for Whitaker, because the heirs are from the South, and there was no suitable place near Hattertown to conduct it. Inspection is 4 to 8 p.m. Friday. For more information, call 215-844-8788.
