Best known for his sepia-toned photographs of the New Zealand rural landscape in the 1920s and 30s, Chance (1885-1963) was the most popular photographer this country has known. He sold over 30,000 prints in his day and most found their place on the walls of New Zealand homes.

It Would Appear The Box Originally Belonged To J. Talbot Clifton And Subsequently Passed Into George Chances Hands.

John Talbot Clifton Sounds Like An Interesting Man - This From Wikipedia.

He became a compulsive traveller who explored Canada, Siberia, Burma, Malaya, Indonesia, Africa and South America, and was known for shooting wild animals and eating them. Some of the animals he shot were species new to science and were named after him, such as a type of wild Siberian sheep (Clifton's bighorn) and a Canadian marmot. He once dined on mammoth recovered frozen from the Arctic permafrost.

A 19thC American Boxing Poster, Framed And Glazed Promoting The Appearance Of Herbert A.

Sullivan, The Opera House Probably The One In Ogden, Utah, A Lithograph From A Photograph By John Wood, New York,
Printed By H.A. Thomas, New York.
767mm x 562mm
Late 19thC, Circa 1885.

A Search Of The Web Indicates This Is The Only Known Version Of This Poster.

Provenance
This Poster Hung In Bill's Gay Nineties Restaurant, A New York City Landmark, For Many Years.

Age Toning And Staining, Damages Professionally Restored.

The Following Sourced From Various On Line Sites.

Herbert Augustus Slade (1851-1913), also known as "Maori" Slade. He was a New Zealand boxer of Irish and Maori descent, who fought many of the leading heavyweights of his era including Joe Coburn, Jem Mace and Charlie Mitchell. He challenged John L. Sullivan for the heavyweight championship of the world at Madison Square Garden, New York, on 6 August 1883. Sullivan won in the third round. Given the issues of race in America at the time it was most unusual for a native person to be allowed to fight for the championship. Indeed, it was the first such match featuring a non-white contender. Slade later went on an exhibition tour with Sullivan and settled in the United States. He died in Utah in 1913. Slade may be considered New Zealand's first international sports personality. He was inducted into the Maori Sports Hall of Fame in 2011

An Archive Of 15 George Chance NZ Interest Black And White Photographs Together With A Most Charming Pine Cabin Chest, Formerly The Property Of George Chance And Likely Used For Camera Storage.

The Archive And The Box To Be Offered As One Lot.

A Fantastic Opportunity For A Canterbury Or Otago Client Seeking To Create A Significant Decorative Statement In One Swoop.

NZ History Web Site;
As photography matured, practitioners started toying with artistic approaches. Around the turn of the 20th century the mode du jour was pictorialism, a style that stressed atmosphere over subject matter.
An optometrist by occupation, George Chance flew the flag for pictorialism in New Zealand, producing some beautiful, iconic, and popular images. Chance moved here from England in 1909 and always retained some of the mother country in his heart, although evoking an Englishness was also one of the common elements of pictorialism.

Sophia Hinerangi, 1830-1911, Known As 'Guide Sophia', The Principle Tourist Guide Of The Famous Pink And White Terraces At Lake Rotomahana From The 1870s Until Their Destruction During The Mt Tarawera Volcanic Eruption Of 1886 When She Relocated To Whakarewarewa Continuing Her Guide Work There. Much Has Been Written Of Her Including Giving Birth To Many Children, By Some Accounts 17, Sighting The Ghostly Waka At Lake Rotomahana, A Portent Of The Eruption Soon To Come, Her Travelling To Australia With The Moa Dramatic Company Playing Herself And Her Involvement With The New Zealand Women’s Temperance Union, Becoming President Of The Whakarewarewa Branch In 1896.

Te Hoari Papakura, Bella, And Her Half Sister Makereti, Maggie, Were Two Renowned Whakarewarewa Guides From Tuhourangi. Today, A Small Carved Wharepuni At Whakarewarewa Still Stands, Which Was Built For Bella By Her Husband. Through Her Guiding Career Bella Worked As A Mentor To A Number Of Whakarewarewa Guides. She And Her Sister Played A Role In Bringing Maori Song And Dance To The Stage, Starting A ‘Maori Dance Troupe’ To Entertain Village Visitors. Maggie Later Moved To England And Studied Anthropology At Oxford University.

Sherwin & Cotton Portrait Tiles Focussed On The Great And The Good Of The Day Such As Benjamin Disraeli And Queen Victoria, But Perhaps Their Most Celebrated Set Is Of The 4 Maori, Commissioned To Celebrate Their Travelling To England To Visit Queen Victoria, Which Not Only Included These Two, Sophia And Bella, But Also The Chiefs Turai Netana And Matene Te Nga,

Dust-Pressing: The technique of manufacturing clay tiles from dust-clay. The damp powdered clay is placed into a screw press and compacted under high pressure to create a tile body that is ready for decoration and can be fired without further drying. This method is the basis of all modern mass-produced tiles.

Emaux Ombrants: From the French meaning “shadowy enamels”. This technique involves intaglio moulding the surface of a tile or other object and then flooding it with a soft glaze that flows freely in the firing. The glaze runs off the high points and into the lower recesses of the moulding to create a tonal variation. This was the technique used by Sherwin and Cotton and others to create so-called “photographic tiles”. These often utilized a dark brown or black glaze to enhance the effect of a photograph

The first great editor of the Journal (NZ Journal Of Physiotherapy) was Margaret Hollis. Margaret came to New Zealand from England where she had worked with Guthrie Smith, and brought a raft of new ideas about suspension therapy, massage, exercise and movement, particularly to cardiothoracic therapy. Within months of her arrival, she was made Vice Principal of the School and Editor of the Journal. Over her two-year term the journal grew in size, secured more advertising revenue (not least from the supplier of Guthrie Smith suspension systems that Hollis brought from England), and defined a higher standard of editorial leadership with her newly appointed Editorial Committee. Inevitably though, the pressure to squeeze decent material from the readership proved too much even for Hollis, as became clear in a bitter Editorial published in 1949

An Early 19thC French Coloured Lithograpgh Of The Costumes Of The Maori Taken From "Voyage Of The Astrolabe."
260mm x 386.
Circa 1830.
The book, undertaken by order of the king, during the years 1826-29 is an account of a scientific expedition to the Pacific. Illustration from the atlas section of the book.
De Sainson wrote of his admiration for individual Mäori and for Mäori activities and rejected the negative stereotypes about Mäori that were commonly expressed in France. Leonard Bell describes him as 'a serious, close and sympathetic observer of Mäori culture and society . . . [his] approach was level-headed and empirical. Though not always successful, he attempted to record what he saw. His renderings of ornament and moko look careful and faithful . . . '. The official account of the voyage of the Astrolabe was written by Dumont d'Urville and illustrated with lithographs by Antoine Maurin, made from de Sainson's drawings. Maurin was a painter and lithographer who exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1834 and 1836.

The Earliest Obtainable Map of Wellington, New Zealand

Early plan of Wellington, based upon the manuscript survey map drafted in 1840, under the direction of Felton Mathew,
the first Surveyor General of New Zealand,, which was lithographed in London by John Arrowsmith, and
printed by James and Luke Graves Hansard (1777-1851).
586mm x 810mm Including Frame.

The map is oriented with East at the top, covering Wellington and Lambton Harbor and Oriental Bay

The map identifies the lots for sale to potential colonists, including the lands reserved for the indigenous Maori peoples.

It also identifies locations set aside for markets, a court house, a prison or 'gaol', public offices, cemeteries, military offices,
a signal stations, a customs house, various churches, and more. Color coding defines public reserves (pink),
properties set aside of the indigenous Maori peoples (green), and lands reserved for religious edifices (grey).

OCLC locates only the examples of the map (National Library of Australia and the British Library) and a photocopy in the Auckland Museum.

My research indicates this is a print produced by WCC in 1972, based on a tracing from an original.
In 40 years in the trade this is the first I've seen, If I thought this was a map dating from 1840 the price would be well into 4 figures.

Muriel Moody Sounds Like A Very Interesting Woman - This Her Wikipedia Entry:

Moody was born in Whangarei, New Zealand on 18 March 1907, the second of six children of John Munro Wilson and Mildred Carrick Proude. Her mother was a talented pianist and loved to sketch, and encouraged her children to develop their talents.

Moody attended Palmerston North Girls' High School, where she showed signs of talent with drawing — the 1925 school magazine contained two of her sketches. After finishing school, Moody worked in Palmerston North as a commercial artist and continued to study art with lessons from Harry Richardson.

In the mid-1930s, Moody moved to Christchurch and became head of advertising for the central city department store Ballantynes. There she met other artists such as Rita Angus and Louise Henderson, and took lessons in etching from Dorothy Turner.

In 1941, Moody joined the British YWCA War Service and worked closely with the director of welfare for the Far East, fellow New Zealander Jean Begg. Moody spent seven years in England, Egypt, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and India setting up residential, recreation and welfare clubs for servicewomen. In 1946 she worked in Japan to open clubs for women of the British Commonwealth Occupation Forces, including a Muriel Wilson hostel.

After a year in Sydney, Australia, receiving treatment for tuberculosis, Moody returned to New Zealand and married public servant Clive Robert Moody, known as Bob Moody, in 1949. They settled in Days Bay, near Wellington, where Moody set up kilns and began to specialise in pottery.In the 1950s she attended ceramics classes at the Petone technical college with Wilf Wright, June Black, Mary Hardwick-Smith, Lee Thompson, Roy Cowan and Juliet Peter.

Moody died on 24 December 1991 at Lower Hutt Hospital. Her works of art are held in various private collections in New Zealand, Britain, Switzerland and the United States, as well as in several New Zealand galleries and institutions such as the Dowse Art Museum and the Suter Art Gallery. In addition, a stylised cross of ceramic tiles constructed by Moody is displayed on an exterior wall of the Barber Memorial Chapel at Samuel Marsden Collegiate School in Karori, Wellington.

In 2015, some of her pottery was included in the 50th anniversary exhibition of New Zealand Potters,
entitled "Flora Christeller & Friends - A Retrospective Exhibition".

Notice Her Work Is In The Dowse. Do Go And Look At Their Current Exhibition. Everything, Everything Is Out!
A Marvelous Cacophony Of Paintings, Pottery, Textiles, Sculpture.. A Fabulous Mish Mash!

No Other Frank Hyams Item Of Royal Interest Is Recorded, With The Exception, Perhaps, Of His Dunedin Period Waka Presented By The Government To The Visiting Duke And Duchess Of Cornwall In 1901, Now Lost Without Trace Among The Royal Collections. Which Is Unfortunate Because According To The Weekly News It Was “The Most Beautiful Thing Ever Made In New Zealand.”
A Polite Nod To The Illustrious Firm Of Faberge Which Opened Showrooms Just A Few Doors Away On New Bond Street In 1903, Whose Royal Eggs Are The Inspiration For The Form Of This Piece.
Gold Mounted Hyams Items Are Very Rare.

About 20 Years Ago New Zealand Government, Weights And Measures, Deaccessioned A Quantity Of Official Weights And Measures - It Is Highly Likely This Imperial Yard Was Sold At That Time.

A Cased Official Imperial Brass Yard Engraved "Imperial Yard 1863 Government Of New Zealand," Stamped SM And VR.

Various Accompanying Paper Slips State

"An Internal Affairs memo of 20 April 1863 says "the weights and measures sent for in Oct/Nov last (1862) will soon be here."

"On 16 April 1864 one brass yard measure was compared to the standard weights and measures of the Government of New Zealand and in a sworn statement by Henry James Masters certified to the "Weights and Measures Ordinance amendment act 1861". This yard was then authorised by Sir George Grey to have the "VR" and "SM" stamps applied.

Refs National Archive IA 1864/1461."

And also

"New Zealand Standard Imperial Yard 1863 This is marked "SM" which means "Standard Measure" and the Victorian Crown signifies Government Ownership. Yard measures were tested by inserting them between the "turrets" on the ends of the Standard Yard. When this Standard Yard was issued in 1863, the Government was based in Auckland. Only two Standard Yard are in private ownership, the remainder are in museums."

In fact this typed catalogue note is incorrect - the yard is not stamped with a crown but with "VR."

Despite Being Without Makers Marks A Tentative Attribution To This Firm Is Appropriate.

Still in existence the firm has this to say about themselves:

"Established in Wanganui by James Williams in 1903. James was a watchmaker who set up his first business in Waipawa and moved to Wanganui from the Hawkes Bay. His first Wanganui shop was opposite the former Catholic Church in the centre of Victoria Avenue. In 1905 he moved to the old Hannah’s building opposite his soon to be erected new premises. This opened in 1912 and J. Williams and Co Jewellery have been there ever since. Today they still operate with many of the original cabinets, fittings and chandeliers giving a unique atmosphere….
Fresh flowers in the shop is a tradition that has been maintained for over 100 years. The stained glass window was a feature of the original building design by Thomas Battle in 1912."

An Extremely Rare And Early 19thC New Zealand Colonial, James Annear, Wellington, Rectangular Burr Totara Glove Box With Totara Carcass, Burr Totara Veneered Exterior, Hinged Top And Folding Front Revealing Cube Parquetry Featuring Burr Totara, Rewa Rewa, Flame Kauri, Maire And Other Woods; The Base With Original Paper Label "James Annear Maker Sydney Street Wellington New Zealand."
282mm Wide x 104mm Deep x 79mm High.
Circa 1840.

James Annear (1814-83) arrived in Wellington, New Zealand, in August 1840. He soon set up his family and business in a house in the suburb of Thorndon. Like many early artisans working in wood, Annear was quick to see the potential of New Zealand's native timbers. He advertised his wares in the Wellington press as 'articles of Cabinet Work, made of the finest specimens of New Zealand Figured Woods'. The Annear family moved to Australia in 1853 never to return.

Very few examples of his work survive. Te Papa has a tray and a work box. To date this box would appear to be the only recorded glove box.

888mm Long.
Captain William Jackson Barry was a most colourful 19thC character who was born in England, shipped to Australia as a child convict about 1829, pursued a vast range of adventurous occupations including bank robber, bush ranger, whaler, auctioneer and trader before becoming a butcher and mayor of Cromwell, Otago, in 1866. In later years he lectured extensively throughout Australasia and Britain, telling tales of his adventurous youth. He wrote three books and it is said of his writing in the Encyclopedia of New Zealand "Lively, funny and dramatic, the writing succeeds in recreating a world of swashbuckling adventure and in making the author-hero into a legend larger than life". Elsewhere "He was friendly, humorous, justice loving, and generally well liked - and was undoubtedly New Zealand's greatest literary liar".

A Group Of Keith Murray Basalt Vases.
Impressed marks and facsimile signatures.
Circa 1935

New Zealand-born Keith Day Pearce Murray was one of the most influential and significant modernist designers. Born in Stokes Road, Mt Eden in 1892, Murray emigrated to England at the age of 14 with his parents Charles Henry Murray, originally from Peterhead, Scotland, and Lillian Day Murray (nee George), from Nelson. Although he graduated from the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London in 1921, he turned his considerable design and drawing skills to working in the decorative arts for most of the 1930s

Coincident with his successful glass work, Murray began designing ceramic tablewares for Wedgwood. In contrast to the highly coloured decorated wares of contemporary Art Deco designers such as Clarice Cliff, his style of ceramic decoration was characterised by subtle glaze finishes and an architectonic furrowing of parallel horizontal grooves which served to accentuate the classical purity of his forms. The simplicity of his designs meant they were relatively inexpensive to produce, and could be adapted to slip casting rather than hand-potting, thus fulfilling Wedgwood's request for 'new cheap shapes, attractive to modern eyes' which would be 'the best possible for the money and reasonably attractive to that growing section of the younger public which has some taste but no money.'

Murray's first designs for Wedgwood were made in a cream-coloured earthenware (Queensware), and also in black, and later bronze, basalt stoneware, produced by mixing colours obtained from cobalt oxide, iron oxide and manganese oxide.

His work was widely exhibited and photographed, and won Murray numerous awards and accolades, including a gold medal at the 5th Triennale in Milan in 1933, and a place among the ten designers to become Royal Designers for Industry, where he later held the title of Master of the Faculty from 1945 to 1947.
