Our next auction is on the 23rd May, next week, the start date of European elections and Joan Collins’s 85th birthday!
Our catalogue is on line from Sunday next, the 19th. Either log on to UKAuctioneers or our website. All lots are illustrated.
This sale has the usual format. We start with about 100 lots of PICTURES with notable artists, including Henriette Ronner-Kipp, Frederic Whiting, Raphael Theodore Roussel, Frederick W. Bailey, James Billingham Caughtrie, Henry John Dobson, Walter H. Allcott, Albert Houghton, A.S.G. Butler, Samuel Alken, Henry Alken, Marc Chagall, and Anton Lock. Henry John Yeend King’s work features on a very impressive piano, the walnut case inset with painted panels by him.
JEWELLERY follows with some good earrings and gold. We have a most impressive 18th century chatelaine and pocket watch in gold and blue and white enamel, by Josiah Emery of Charing Cross, with crown and initials, enamelled in red and a charming painted plaque under glass of two maidens, fitted with matching key and egg-shaped charm vinaigrette plus two pearl and enamel drops, hallmarked London 1770, and we have a fabulous brooch, the good quality, large rectangular aquamarine stone surrounded by diamonds.
ART OBJECTS include collector coins, stamps and postcards and an extensive collection of watch catalogues – a good source of research material.
Our SHELVES are not as full as usual, but still a great opportunity for making you profit. From a flat in Wandsworth we have found two unusual Kangxi period famille vert bitongs painted with figures and inscribed with poetry. We have two 19th century Meissen porcelain groups, a pair of 19th century cut glass and ormolu candelabra, a Victorian skeleton timepiece inscribed Myers, African carved wooden masks, and ceramic figures.
COSTUME includes a good entry from Hampstead Garden Suburbs. A very well dressed lady bought from Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Muir, MaxMara, Escada, Jaeger and Armani, and it’s all here for your appreciation along with some good alligator and skin handbags, also silk squares including Hermes.
FURNITURE fills the room. If you need a sofa then we have one for you whether you want a classic in leather or fabric or contemporary in black leather – an Ogmore sofa by Orangebox. Or a three piece by Ercol of stick-back form. Designer items includes a set of four three-legged dining chairs by Frem Rojle of Denmark. We have a fine contemporary dining table, the opaque glass top on four steel supports. And if you enjoy Victorian revival furniture, we have a stool that is stamped Osborne with a crown. Our contribution to the 200th celebrations for the birth of Queen Victoria! Lots of occasional and dining tables, chests of drawers and, if you are into books, ten or so glass-fronted bookcases.
From a fabulous flat overlooking Regents Park we bring you a most impressive continental cabinet with gilt metal embellishments and marble tops. From the same flat comes a good quality twin pedestal dining table, ten chairs and sideboard, and a fabulous chandelier and a gilt framed mirror.
GENERAL EFFECTS includes garden tables and large terracotta garden pots.
All next Thursday the 23rd, with viewing on the 22nd 1-7pm.
