This week our pick is Lot 47, among the selection of pieces from the estate of George “Frolic” Weymouth at Big Bend. Frolic had a passion for nature and the arts, and founded the Brandywine Conservancy and Museum of Art. The marriage of these two interests is embodied in his enthusiastic collection of turtle decorations, which is represented in this sale by Lot 47, a leather turtle foot rest from the early 20th century. Coming in at 22 inches long, this stately reptile would be a handsome addition to any study or library. Lot 47 is estimated at $100 – $200, and will be available in our upcoming July 14th special auction.
