Our last sale of the year approaches. It’s on Thursday the 8th December at 11am with viewing the day before from 1pm to 7pm and on sale day from 9.30am and includes alcohol and a rare Clarice Cliff Lotus jug in Fragrance pattern. It’s perfect and 29 cm high (see previous news post for photographs).
Not the biggest auction of the year but every section is represented.
Starting with the FURNITURE, a local home brought us the most charming and relatively small 19th century Japanese shibayama cabinet. Delicate in its execution, it has around the shelves, a door and two drawer fronts charmingly decorated. The figure on the door is playing a drum. The quality is lovely. The remainder of the section includes a pair of large reproduction wing-back arm chairs, a three piece suite and good shipping goods.
PICTURES has about 80 lots and includes two good old London Transport posters, good oils and watercolours. Artists include: Prichard, Helen Bradley, E. Roux, J. Earp, Roland, Bachelor, Vincent Haddelsey, I Costello, Ronnie Biggs, Terry Gall, Winjella, Alan Howells, Charles Patrickson, J Roybal, Harold Wood, E. Laster, Jack Vettriano, Kara Wilson, Henry Silkstone Hopwood and Charles Handley.
The shelves are full. Of course this is a sale full of ALCOHOL – well it’s just before Christmas, and includes lots of single malts and blended whiskies, champagne including Cristal and lots of wines.
The rest of the SHELVES have decorative items, china, glass and metal wares including Chinese porcelain, clocks, carved figures and bronzes, good Royal Doulton cabinet plates with signed painted panels and, of course, the Clarice Cliff Lotus jug in the rare Fragrance pattern.
COLLECTABLES include football programmes, postcards, stamps, a large coin collection and ephemera including early theatre programmes, ancient projectors, good records and a vast collection of CDs.
SILVER AND PLATE are worth a view and JEWELLERY includes some good gold.
COSTUME includes a fine full length mink coat and other furs, vintage clothing from the 1950s to the 1980s, good vintage and modern handbags including vintage Chanel.
GENERAL EFFECTS never disappoints and includes a Volvo motor car from a deceased estate, a modern Daewoo fridge freezer with 2 doors next to one another in satin silver finish. It looks new. We have lots of televisions, washing machines, a condenser dryer, a folding bike, patio set, a vast array of tools, some unused, two pianos, etc.
