Kirkwood Mansion Sale In Eutaw, Alabama
Saturday, September 5th, 2009 @ 10am there will be an onsite Estate Auction at Kirkwood Mansion in Eutaw, Alabama. Hal Hunt will be selling the Contents of Kirkwood Mansion – the Estate Collection of Al and Danky Blanton which includes many classical and Victorian furnishings; a sampling of which are presented below.
There are many signed and well-known pieces from J & JW Meeks, John Henry Belter, Charles Baudouine, Charles Lee, and Alexander Roux and the Meeks settee-“slipper sofa” is a form that I have not seen before from that maker.
One complaint that I have about this sale is that it appears they are selling at least one architectural element that is original to the mansion – the hall light. Otherwise, it appears like this another great sale from Hal Hunt.
