The PICTURES fill over 100 lots with Myles Birket Foster included along with John Piper, William Renison, Axel Haig, Anna Ticho, Michael John Hill, Mark Postlethwaite, Jon Westell, Ernest Crofts, Rex Flood, Lansdale Bradshaw, B. Righetti, John Hall Thorpe, Sheila Beryl, C.A. Aiken, Paul Marc Joseph Chenavard, Desmond Turner, L. Pownall, Maurice Man, Robert Hill, etc.
JEWELLERY is in 30 lots including a fine French diamond bracelet on 18ct gold in the Belle Epoque fashion. The coins include a platinum shilling. The art objects include a fabulous pierced gilt-metal strut clock retailed by Howell and James and possibly by Thomas Cole.
SILVER AND PLATE fills the shelves and includes an extensive flatware service for 14 by Ealy and Fearn, fiddle thread and shell pattern, a large tray, a 6-piece condiment stand, along with the usual cups, condiments, dishes, a silver presentation trowel, 1901, with Jewish interest, etc.
FASHION, furs and costume includes some good quality faux designer bags, nearly new size 11 shoes by Loake, an extensive collection of trainers, some not used (and one arrived with 140 euros hidden in the toe!), textiles and table linen.
The SHELVES are all full including some very good table glass including Waterford, extensive dinner services including Minton ‘Haddon Hall’ and ‘Aragon’, ornaments including a large quantity of Halcyon Days boxes, modern lighting, pewter, a Newlyn tea caddy, clocks, etc. We also have a 1933 Martin Archtop R-18 guitar, in its case.
FURNITURE is in 150 lots. Whilst we offer most of what you might want – modern as-new beds, a leather Italian designer suite from Roche Bobois, fabulous 1970s tables, chairs and sideboards, a reproduction mahogany suite of top quality with 10 chairs, sideboard and serving table, the piece de resistance is undoubtedly a large majestic George lll breakfront secretaire bookcase in mahogany with marquetry inlay and Gothic glazing. It measures 10 ft 6 ins wide and 9 ft high. Valued for probate in 2002 by a famous Fulham Road furniture dealer at £12,500, we offer it with an estimate of £2500-£3500.
We have RECORDS, BOOKS with good old bindings including Memorials of Cambridge by Charles Henry Cooper, FSA, published 1860 in 3 volumes, ORIENTAL CARPETS including a large early 20th century Kirman carpet, and TOYS including vintage Action Man and a full set of the Spice Girls on Tour dolls, still boxed.
(May I remind you that our August sale includes wines and whisky. Entries still invited.)
So, with England firmly in the running come next Thursday, you can take a break and join us in our air-conditioned splendour with Charlie Ross and I sharing the refereeing .
