In this edition of the Antiques Auction Forum, I talk with author Jim Craig for a fascinating discussion of the finest American eagle carver of all time, John Haley Bellamy. The upcoming Portsmouth, N.H., Historical Society’s exhibition titled Bold & Brash: The Art of John Haley Bellamy is from slated to run from April 4 to Oct. 3. As podcast host, this is one of my favorite interviews, and I suggest not to miss this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition! Check out Craig’s Facebook Page dedicated to Bellamy here.
