Gerald Lawhorn Collection At Hal Hunt Auctions
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.[Not a valid template]
