    Andrew Holter, Head of Department,said: Every category of the sale showed continued strength and many works

    were highly sought after with competitive bidding from new and established clients. The selection of important

    works also presented wonderful opportunities for collectors. Most notably, the rare and discovered works of the

    kneehole bureau that is signed Jonathan Townsend and the John Bartlam porcelain teabowl achieved significant

    prices for its important place in American history.
