On March 17-18 Matheson’s AA Auction in Melbourne, FL will present over 900 lots in a wide ranging sale that will include 200 lots from a major Napoleonic period collection from a local estate. The sale will also include portions of a major Melbourne estate’s collection of African and pre-Columbian art and a very important painting by Jean-Baptiste Greuze (1725-1805) that has been passed down in the same family for generations.

The Napoleonic collection was accumulated over forty year period by a very advanced collector in Melbourne who spent two months each year in France upgrading and augmenting his collection of period artifacts. The collection was inherited by the collector’s granddaughter who has engaged Matheson’s to offer part of it for sale. In the two hundred lots from the collection are circa 1796-1815 flintlock pistols, long guns and a fine blunderbuss with a historic provenance, French and English military swords, most in original scabbards from the same period, over 100 gold , silver and bronze French coins and medals, all pre-1815 and a superb Napoleonic marble and d’ore bronze figural clock, circa 1798, 26in high. Also included are pieces of armor, uniforms, helmets, a bronze bust of Napoleon, a large four foot Napoleonic carved wood chest circa 1807 and a drum with applied bronze crowned eagle of cannons.

Art will be a significant part of this sale. The inventory features eight works by eccentric Kentucky artist Henry Faulkner in his original frames. The paintings come from the estate in Ft. Lauderdale of a friend of Faulkner’s who was given the works by the artist personally. The paintings were discovered in trash bins destined for destruction. A large mother and child oil on canvas by French artist Paul-Alexander-Alfred Leroy (1860-1942) will be offered along with three large investment quality numbered prints by Chegall and one by Picasso.

The pre-Columbian portion of the sale will include a five foot tall carved figural man who has been stored in a crate for the last 75 years, along with textiles and jewelry. The African art section features wood carvings, weapons, masks and ivory artifacts.

Rounding out the sale will an important Coca-Cola collection from a family that worked for the company for three generations, over 100 pieces of fine jewelry including a coral and diamond jewelry suite and an 18th century mahogany English Chinese Chippendale Pembroke table with complex stretcher and shaped leaves, in original finish.

The sale begins at 11:00AM Saturday March 17 and continues at 12:00 PM Sunday March 18. Preview will be Friday March 16 from 11:00AM to 6:00PM and two hours before the start of the sale on both days. Matheson’s AA Auction is located at 600 E. New Haven Avenue in Melbourne, FL. Seating for 175 can be reserved by phone or by email. Selected portions of the catalog are available for viewing on the Matheson’s AA Auction website.

The auction will be called by 33 year veteran auctioneer and auction co-owner Lloyd J. Matheson, Jr. Phone and absentee bids are welcomed.
