Upcoming March 14th Sale Highlights
Sought after by collectors, Pilkington’s “Lancastrian” glaze was developed in 1903, resulted in a signature iridescent finish and was named after the county of Lancashire, England, where the factory was sited. King George V and Queen Mary became admirers of Pilkington wares while visiting a nearby home in 1913 and subsequently granted the company a royal warrant, changing the firm’s name to Pilkington’s Royal Lancastrian Pottery Company.

Our Story

We are an Auction House and offer Appraisal Services. For over thirty-five years, Winter Associates has provided personal property appraisal and estate liquidation services. We are one of New England’s highly respected auction firms. We have earned a reputation for honesty and integrity. We have liquidated personal property for a variety of clients including law firms, museums, trust departments and other professionals. We also assist individuals who are downsizing estates, whether it is one item or an entire household. Winter Associates understands that the undertaking of selling one’s possessions can be both overwhelming and disconcerting. Our staff knows that the success of a project is not just its financial return, but the comfort level a client feels while we work with the objects they have enjoyed for many years in their home. It is important to provide a willing ear and well-informed responses when clients are asking for advice on what to sell and what to keep, as well as how to maximize their return. Winter Associates, Inc.’s services can encompass a “turnkey” operation. In such instances we will remove and market all saleable items, and also remove all goods to be donated (such as mattresses, canned goods, etc.), dispose of any refuse and leave the home “broom clean”. Our firm prides itself on properly examining and cataloging items for sale. We have a well earned reputation in the industry for honesty and accuracy. It is important for both a seller and purchaser to know that items have correct descriptions. We have the expertise to recognize items of importance and to promote them properly. These are just a few of the reasons we have developed a strong client base of both sellers and buyers. Winter Associates, Inc. is proud of the reputation it has developed as a successful and well managed personal property appraisal firm and auction gallery.

Winthrop Chandler (1747-1790), 18th-century oil on canvas, 23" x 21", with an old label stating, “Nathaniel Chandler 1750-1801, Petersham, Mass. A lawyer, unmarried. Painted by Winthrop Chandler before 1775,” sold for $14,760 (est. $750/1500) at Winter Associates, Inc.
This Ruth Henshaw Bascom (1772-1848) mixed-media and pastel side-profile portrait of young woman with a lace collar over a black dress, 18" x 13¼", has an early label on the back of the frame that mirrors the inscription on the back of the drawing, which was documented in slides before the portrait was framed. The label reads “Maria D. Lincoln. Oakham / Sketched at Leicester Aug. 1845 / by Mrs. Bascom,” then in pencil “Mother of Alice Davis Armsby / wife of Amos Armsby,” and in ink “She was 28 yrs. Old. Born May 14, 1817.”

The portrait sold for $12,300 (est. $5000/7000) at Winter Associates, Inc., Plainville, Connecticut, October 25.

Notable lots that crossed the block in our August 20, 2021 issue lead with a large white marble sculpture of a kneeling boy with crab and net that made for active bidding at Winter Associates. At Slotin Folk Art Auctions, a circa 1930 quilt by African American artist Fairy Belle Smith sold for close to 40 times its high estimate, while “a pleasant surprise” was the result at William Smith Auctions of a Renaissance Revival table by Pottier & Stymus that brought five figures.
