Major collectors of the best in American Rococo probably have already directed their attention to the February 21st Hal Hunt Auction of the Gerald Lawhorn collection.  Lawhorn founded the Griffin, GA PetroSouth chain of gas stations and had invented a system to buy gas at the pump using a credit or debit card.

The sale includes an extensive collection of Belter furniture, such as the bed above, as well as attributed furniture from J & JW Meeks, Alexander Roux, and others.  I’ve selected a few items below but the full catalog is a joy to peruse.

    I wonder if anyone attended this sale today and if they could give a report-I really wanted to go but could not due to other conflicts. Gerald Lawhorn was a friend of my father’s in the Boy Scouts for years and years. He had donated $$$ to the Boy Scouts in Ga, and I heard that the proceeds or at least some of them from this sale were going to the Boy Scouts. Charles.
