Estimate: $2,000.00 +
Sold Price: $1,169.88 (includes buyer's premium)


Two chairs and a lamp from the home of rocket pioneer Robert H. Goddard, including: a wicker rocking chair, a ‘William and Mary’ style ladder back chair, and a floor lamp with cranberry-colored glass center. A handwritten tag on the base of the lamp reads, “This lamp was owned by Dr. Robt. H. Goddard, rocket pioneer. Purchased in Roswell, New Mexico, 1930. Mate to it is in the Goddard Library and in a painting of Esther Goddard, by Dr. Goddard." In very good to fine condition. These were originally purchased from the estate of Beatrice D. Kisk, whose husband Albert was Robert H. Goddard’s brother-in-law and machinist. After Albert Kisk passed away, Beatrice moved into the Goddard family home in Worcester with her widowed sister-in-law Esther; the home and items within it were sold in the 1980s following Esther Goddard’s death. Please contact RR Auction for a shipping quote.
