On January 16, Morphy Auctions will launch its 2020 roster of high-profile gallery events with the 220-lot sale of an extraordinary Pennsylvania collection. Dubbed “The Susquehanna Collection,” the unique assemblage of furniture, decorative and fine arts, Kentucky long rifles, powder horns and accoutrements was astutely amassed by a private collector over a period of 40 years. Its contents are a testament to the pride and incomparable level of craftsmanship that typified 18th- and 19th-century firearms, furniture and everyday objects produced in the low-lying settlements alongside the Susquehanna River, in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New York. “There is no match for the quality of artistry and craftsmanship that emerged in the Susquehanna region,” said Morphy Auctions’ president, Dan Morphy. “From gunsmiths to cabinetmakers, the bar was set very high. They used uncompromising Old World standards and techniques as the baseline for their distinctly American creations. This collection is a time-stopping showcase for what those talented artists and artisans produced, as well as other family treasures imported from Europe.” Morphy’s January 16, 2020 auction of The Susquehanna Collection will start at 10 a.m. Eastern Time at the company’s gallery in Denver, Pennsylvania. All forms of bidding will be available, including live via the Internet through Morphy Live. Questions: call 877-968-8880 or email info@morphyauctions.com. Online: www.morphyauctions.com.
