Welcome to the historic district of Ipswich, where there are more remaining first Period (1626-1725) houses (59), than anywhere else in the country.
This estate was the family home of an engineer, he was the Plant Engineer at The Shoe, what locals call The United Shoe Machinery Company in Beverly, MA. The factory is recognized as one of the nation's most important landmarks of industrial design.
After the plant closed relics from it's nearly 100 years of operation were retained by the engineer including the International Time Recording Co Time Clock, shoe salesman sample cases, stock certificate and ephemera featuring plant construction photographs, employee handbook and MORE.
The engineer's father was a homeopathic doctor who was renowned for treating a pope for his hiccups. His collection of apothecary medicines remain plus his period antiques featuring clocks, export porcelain and china are featured prominently within the home.
Featuring 'Ship in a Storm' by the "Father of Luminism" in America, Robert Salmon, 1775 - 1845. Salmon was born on the English coast and moved to Boston in 1829. Living in a hut, overlooking the Boston harbor, Salmon prospered as a marine painter, accepting commissions to paint ship portraits. His known production of works amounted to about 1000, we are excited to offer #37, 'Ship in a Storm'.
Additional art includes sculptures, after the antique, from the torso of Laocoon and His Sons, one of the greatest works of ancient Greek sculptures, residing at the Vatican, to a plaster cast after Guido Reni, Aurora, to the head of Alexander the Great to the bust of Nefertiti.
