Estate of Margaret P. Newcombe – Provenance Brunk 5-11-2013

Margaret P. Newcombe, Owner of Pennyworth Kennels, Newington, New Hampshire

Pennyworth was one of America’s most outstanding kennels of the 20th century boasting over seven Best In Show winners. Margaret Newcombe inherited her love of breeding and show dogs from her mother, the owner of the famous Clairedale Kennels and winner of Best In Show at Westminster in 1936. Margaret Newcombe eventually came to win the revered ‘triple crown’ of dog shows in 1964 with Courtenay Fleetwood. This dog has sired many of today’s whippet champions. In total, Pennyworth owned 55 champion whippets, 36 of which were home-bred. These paintings and bronzes reflect the passion of Margaret Newcombe for the whippet breed.
