Featuring Results from The Smith Estate / Towanda, PA
On Friday & Saturday, June 27th & 28th 2014 one of the last great estates in Towanda, PA was auctioned by ROAN Inc. Auctioneers & Appraisers of Cogan Station, PA over the course of two days. The Estate of the late Frances R. & David R. Smith of Towanda was auctioned for the Smith family by the Roan family, which featured an exceptional one-of-a-kind American primitive oil painting on canvas inscribed on reverse 'View of Towanda Bradford CO Pennsylvania painted by H. Walton 1851' by American painter Henry Walton (1804-1865) and sold for a commanding $86,000. This colorful and untouched work shows great detail from figures and sheep on the foreground bank to boats with US flags on the river, and a covered bridge over the Susquehanna river to buildings on the town side – some of which are identifiable to this day – with a vibrant blue & white sky, held in its original gilt frame and original stretcher with most of the original paper label that read 'James S. Earle 216 Chestnut St Philadelphia PA'.
In addition, a pair of portrait paintings of Mr. & Mrs. Henry Mercur, also attributed to Henry Walton sold for $4,000.
