Antique street fair big fat zero...

...then I walked by a pool hall… 

ANOTHER OF CARLTON'S "HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN" FEATURES

 

 Petaluma CA. - Sunday Sept. 28th 2014 

oday I went to the Petaluma Antique Street Fair and it was a total bust…barely even saw anything interesting much less to buy…In all the years I’ve been going to that show I’ve never found a thing…so today I figured I’d give it everything I had by getting there real early…got up at 4:30AM... got to the fair at 6:15AM…I envisioned finding a Spalding Trophy or something for all my early rise dedication…nada…still nothing….

So at 10 went to a local church service then got something to eat after and starting going thru the local stores…and they weren’t much better than the fair…the parking around the downtown was impacted so I parked a little up the street for the last store…So as I’m walking up the street I go by a large pool hall…I looked in and saw what appeared to be some pool related prints and décor…so I walked in and started looking around…Just as I walked in I saw the broadside above…I’m wild for broadsides and I know how rare they are…and this one was for a world championship…and was very striking…I walked all thru the huge cavernous pool hall but didn’t see anything else that got my attention…

I knew nothing about the pool hall and just assumed it wasn’t for sale…but I looked it over carefully anyway…the design had me…the way it was laid out…It had photos of Kramer and Riggs so that was a big plus…and it was stopping power yellow…with contrasting dark blue letters…and the way the venue was displayed on the side with the city Oakland, and date was unique…I’d never seen a poster laid out like that…Had some staining but I didn't care looked great to me...By the nature of how they were used...being hung up outdoors...it's natural for broadsides to have imperfections...

So in the back of the hall was a large show room with pool tables and pool furnishings of every sort for sale…and there was a guy sitting at a desk…real friendly guy says hi and everything…so we start talking about pool stuff and I asked if the decorations in the hall were for sale…He chuckles well…everything’s for sale…sort of like…they weren’t actively selling the decorations but they might...and he asks what I was interested in…How much for “that tennis poster” I said…he goes I don’t know I’ll call the owner he’s just up the street…I wait and can feel a nose bleed price coming…He hangs up and laughs…He doesn’t really want to sell it and gave me a pretty high figure $XXXX.XX…more that I wanted to pay…but in actuality I ball parked it about ½ it’s potential considering how rare it was…nevertheless I wasn’t paying nose bleed for a tennis piece…and so I left…on the way out I studied it again and took some shots…I went out to my car and got on my lap top and looked up the match…from a cursory look it appeared the match was part of a series that played in various cities…since the same match was played in NYC in 1947…so I figured it was from 1947…

Later I ascertained there was no Saturday February 21st in 1947…but later learned there was in 1948…and later I learned a lot more about the series in a 2009 book about one of the participants Pancho Segura called “Little Pancho”: The Life of Tennis Legend Pancho Segura, by Caroline Seebohm…according to what I read the series went on for a few years I believe…

So anyway…I went back in and looked it over again…I concluded that although later than I normally collect…it was important and I liked it a lot…So I went back in the show room and told the guy to call the seller and offer $XXX.XX…half of what he quoted…but it was serious money and I felt he would take it…took a while but he came back with $150.00 over my offer…I felt my offer was pretty strong but out of good will I upped it $50.00…more third party phone negotiating and waiting…but the desk man collected advertising so all the while we were having a good time talking antique signs as the afternoon wore on…Finally the desk man gets a text reply from the owner…. $XXX.XX…$50 over my last offer…

My offer was very fair...So much so I wasn't in the mood to pay more…and was going to leave but the desk guy and I kept on talking signs for about 15-20 minutes…then in comes the big guy in person…Him and I had nowhere near the camaraderie as his employee…nothing hostile or anything but he seemed all business…We chatted a little but I was getting worn out and wanted to get going…so I thanked him but said that was all I could do…and he reluctantly caved…He went out and unscrewed it from the wall…I paid him and walked out with it the new owner...I got the feeling some of the regulars had been curiously watching me and were a little taken back to see me walk out with it tucked under my arm…And that was my Sunday...

Below are excerpts from the book Little Pancho by Caroline Seebohm. The book references the series of matches this poster promoted and provides a remarkable look behind the scenes.

5.jpg (205774 bytes)

Acquired June 29th 2014

 

n 30 years of collecting, esthetically, this  is probably the best looking antique sports tankard I've seen. I see a lot of rowing ones with school crests and so on, but can't recall a tennis one. I spotted it on eBay and jammed the brakes hard to a screeching halt...I always like m.jpg (19905 bytes)the look of crossed sports equipment like baseball bats, oars, skis, snowshoes, polo mallets and such. So the crossed racquets caught my attention initially...then once I saw the incredible engraving work, it really had me...and the archaic old world lettering...phew! Cursory research revealed the match was likely played in Oxford England...and my friend, rowing historian Tom Weil, told me the famous James Dixon concern who made the tankard was located right there in Oxford and essentially had a monopoly on all the sports trophy tankards made for Oxford. "It didn't come cheap...I was hoping to get it for about half of what I had to pay as top bidder...but I wasn't surprised being it's the best I've ever seen...had 22 bids.

Dated Jan. 22nd 1864

 

Further research will be needed to learn the full history of this handsome tankard. So far we know the opponents Cecil Frederick Reid and Thomas Charles Agar Robartes both attended Christ Church College at Oxford. Of the thirty eight colleges at Oxford, Christ Church is the most prestigious and exclusive. We believe both Reid and Robartes were undergrads there when the match was played. Both players were from well to do families. Cecil Reid's family had owned a brewery for over half a century and Thomas Robartes father was a Baron, and Robartes himself later became a Baron, as well as a member of Parliament.

Agar-Robartes was the son of Thomas Agar-Robartes, 1st Baron Robartes. He was educated at Harrow and Christ Church, Oxford, and was called to the Bar, Middle Temple, in 1870. In 1882 he succeeded his father in the barony and entered the House of Lords. In 1899 he succeeded his kinsman as sixth Viscount Clifden. Later he served as Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire from 1906 to 1915.

(Yale won championship, see teams below)

Note: The seller from Connecticut was able to provide much on the history of this poster, in that it came from one of the Yale players who played on the 1915 team...so we know it's one of the players pictured below...determining which one will require some research...stay tuned for a good story!

FIRST CINEMATIC FEATURE

Have you ever seen interesting props in the background of a movie? For me it all started when

I got back from Massachusetts last May after attending the Brimfield Antiques Fair. I rented some movies about Boston just to see if I could spot any sites I'd seen there. I particularly wanted to seesites of Harvard so I rented Love Story with Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw. I saw a few shots of the campus here and there in the movie....but then when it got to the part where O'Neal's character goes to see his father for money to pay his wife's medical expenses...BLAM!!...I really got an eye full...There in his father's office sitting front and center was an incredible bronze rowing statue of a coxed pair. I don't believe I'd ever seen it before..It looked for certain to be French, and best I can make out, it's on a light jade or light brown marble base....which would be typical. We aren't given any full close in shots but you can see a distant full length and closer in partials, take a look below!

Starring Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw
