  AMERICANA IN COMMAND
by Brook S. Mason
It's Americana week in New York. With a total of seven sales at Christie's and Sotheby's, Jan. 18-20, 2001, boasting some $12 million-plus in wares, the week could not be more bullish. And in keeping with the forthcoming inauguration of President George W. Bush, an enticing selection of presidential wares is under the hammer.
