 Richard Cousins (1927-2018)

From the heart of Newburyport’s historic south end this single owner estate is offering the accumulation        of over (3) generations of antiques, paintings, silver, Victorian jewelry, prints, furniture, china,              clocks, glass and many, many, objects of virtue as well as interesting smalls. 

Locals may remember “Dick” as a 1945 graduate of the Governor’s Academy,

The epitome of a southern gentleman he was a loyal friend who enjoyed the simpler things in life;        spending time with friends, the New York Times, watching Doc Martin, listening to Shostakovich,     pancakes, lobster rolls, and mint chip ice cream. Dick had a quick wit that was always appreciated             and told great stories of his life and how Newburyport once was.

Others still may remember his long time patronage of the local art scene; purchasing local works                                       of art from the Newburyport Art Association and Churchill’s Gallery, Newburyport                        (one time the region’s preeminent art gallery for contemporary artists).   

                          This sale presents a collection of fine art, antiques and collectables for patrons                                    to discover in person with no internet bidding.  

                 We look forward to seeing you at the Masonic Center, Green Street, Newburyport as there                                  most likely will be something of interest to everyone.
