Clothespin bag, sewer tile head

Two items that sold Sunday at the Material Culture auction in Philadelphia, both for the same price -- $175 before auctioneer's fee. The small head, by an unknown artist, was formerly owned by the pioneering collector Herbert Hemphill. The clothespin bag, displayed in Plexiglass, was described as African-American made.
