Another auction note - Elizabeth Sheffield

The original Elizabeth Sheffield sampler is also going up for auction, at Sotheby's, Jan. 25th.

Auction listing

I thought this was in the collection of the American Folk Art Museum, but the museum has had financial problems in recent years and there was discussion of possibly having to close it and disperse the collections.  I'm not up to date on the current events, but it looks like they are in fact selling at least part of their holdings.

Sad day.....

I have heard that it will most likely sell for between 25000.00 and 35000.00.
