The Private Collection of David & the Late Mary Jo Field
It is with great pleasure that Pridham’s Auctions & Appraisals presents the lifelong collection of David and the late Mary Jo Field. Avid collectors of Canadiana antiques and folk art for fifty years; they filled their authentically restored 1850’s home – Croydon House – with pieces they treasured and enjoyed. As collectors and dealers of Canadiana and folk art and with a wide international experience they developed an aesthetic for wonderful objects. The collection holds many traditional items but expands into the playful and unusual.
Central to their overall collection is an important selection of carvings and paintings by highly regarded and much sought-after artists: William Loney, the Klatt Brothers, Joe Norris, Félicien Lévesque, Joe Sleep, Colins Eisenhauer, Chief James Beaver and many others.
This sale is rounded out with inclusions from a select number of like-minded collectors. Pridham’s is pleased to offer some of the very best in the Canadiana and folk-art collecting areas on October 29th. The Fields are well known in the trade and by collectors alike for their keen eye and excellent taste; this sale is a special occasion not to be missed.
