Sometimes in Unlikely Places: Interesting Maps

Abda4605-fd64-4494-bdcd-95301427bb39

Lot 372: Frederick de wit World map

The Goodyear Tire folks of Akron, in the mid 1980’s decided, under the direction of Janet Schirn of Chicago, a past president of the American Society of Interior Designers, to build a collection of antique maps that would reflect the company’s global perspective.  The collection was two years in the making and has since remained on the walls of the company headquarters increasingly as a time capsule of what was thought important mid-way through the Reagan presidency.  It was an odd approach to building a collection but the thinking today is that the ensuing thirty years have probably moved values well beyond what they they paid for the maps and framing.  We'll soon know as the material will be sold at Rachel Davis Fine Arts on the 21st [links at the end of this article].

 

It is not entirely surprising that an interior designer curated the collection.   Maps fall on both sides of the decorator – collectors divide, a reason that prices for collectible maps have been perennially strong. 

 

Good sports that they are, Goodyear is selling this collection of 118 map lots with, in some cases high estimates, but in all cases without reserves.  Only a few percent of all lots offered at auction in the collectible paper category each year are sold naked.  These lots are in that special group.  They also fall into the smaller subgroup of unreserved sales, the announced unreserved sale.  Most unreserved lots are never announced.  These have been and this should make for an active sale.  Unreserved sales, which often provide bargains to lucky bidders, generally overall bring stronger realizations for consignors.

 

A hopeful sign to bidders may be the organization of the sale that provides no index, begins the first maps at lot 371 [and continuing to 488].  On the Davis site use the link provided at the end of this article and the term map in the keyword field to uncover the map lots. There are also other Goodyear lots outside of the map category included in the sale.
