The lifetime collections of art, antiques, jewelry, silver and famous name shotguns from two outstanding estates will cross the block at Turkey Creek Auctions in Citra, FL on June 21.

(CITRA, FL) – Turkey Creek Auctions owner in Citra, FL, Charles David Glynn, has been a busy fellow recently. He secured the consignment of the estate of Mrs. Edward F. Timmons, from upper crust Boston family, to cross the block the same time as the Camp/McKay estate, Florida’s early upper crust, from Ocala, FL. In the 1950s and 1960s Mrs. Timmons lectured on samplers, antiques and jewelry and the romance and customs of American Colonies, focusing on the role of Colonial women, while indulging her passion for collecting. Her acquisitions included Boston, Irish, Scottish and English silver, paintings, boxes and fans. The Camp family, one of Florida’s wealthiest families, with holdings in mining and state wide business interests, has a selection of fine silver purchased at Tiffany’s, excellent examples of Rookwood pottery and fine furniture acquired while on the Grand Tour through Europe as wealthy families of the early twentieth century often did. The Camp’s also had a taste for fine guns including Parker and L.C. Smith shotguns.

The Timmons estate has contributed some significant art for this sale including two paintings by Impressionist painter Abbott Fuller Graves (American 1859-1936), a work by Barbizon painter Charles Francois Daubigny (French 1817-1878), a miniature on ivory self portrait by Sarah Goodrich (American 1788-1853), a miniature on ivory of Madame de Poirabebie by Herbin and large O/C of a mother and child signed “Bornazi, Paris.”

This sale contains over 100 pounds of silver items, most from the Camp estate. Of special note is a hand hammered martini shaker with twelve glasses and tray by William Waldo Dodge, Jr. of Asheville, NC. There is also a heavy six piece Gorham tea set with tray, Tiffany candlesticks, English and Dutch silver boxes, water pitchers, compotes, trays, plates, bowls,, a Boston coin silver tea caddy, chatelaines, an English silver perfume horn form, Scottish snuff mulls and silver egg shaped nutmeg grinder and much more.

Furniture will include two column front china closets with mirrored backs, an Art Deco iron planter, a Belgian carved dining set, a Spanish style bedroom set three matching mahogany bookcases and a pair of custom made demilune cabinets.

On the accessory rack can be found a Roycroft copper bowl, Rookwood pottery, a French marble lyre clock, some fine Baccarat and a seven inch blue decorated stoneware pitcher. The shotguns include a rare 28 gauge Parker double barrel, circa 1910, in good condition and a custom made LC Smith in excellent condition, circa 1920.
