Sporting Collectibles from the Hueber Estate to Be Auctioned

Wiederseim Associates, the Chester Springs, Pennsylvania auction house, will offer items from the collection of the late Christian Hueber, MFH of the Radnor Hunt on April 7, 2012 at Griffith Hall, Ludwig’s Corner Fire Company in Glenmoore.

Hueber, who succumbed in 2005 after a long battle with cancer , was a popular and passionate sportsman. Among the items from his collection to be auctioned are two dozen lots of foxhunting and sporting books; several Staffordshire fox-head stirrup cups, likely to bring low-three-figure prices; Radnor Hunt watercolors; and a striking oil-on-canvas painting of two fighting roosters by the British artist Stephen Elmer (1717-1796). The painting has a presale estimate of $6,000 to $8,000.
