Sale Notes

Yet another eclectic mix of art and antiques are included in Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood's Antiques and Interiors Auction on Tuesday, 7th February 2017.

Possibly the most dramatic is an Art Deco period cold painted and bronze patinated model of a huntress on horseback with a hound (EX177/259), the horse having a flowing mane and tail. The whole model mounted on an onyx and marble angular base, typical of the 'jazz age', this figure group is estimated at £150-£200.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, perhaps a 'his and hers' double photograph frame (EX177/177) would make a pleasant present. With embossed scroll and floral decoration, the easel frame has two oval apertures for photographs and is a snip at £50-£70.

Also in the silver section is a set of four silver gilt table salts and spoons  (EX177/179), assayed in London in 1898. They come in a fitted red Morocco leather case and are estimated at £50-£70.

As remembrance of World War I continues, on offer is an officer's trench compass contained in its stitched leather case (EX177/233). All officers were issued with compasses but the stalemate of trench warfare meant they were seldom needed. £30-£40 should secure it.

Two examples of the ivory carver's art are on offer. The first is from Europe and depicts an elf or gnome (EX177/234) standing in front of a lily-of-the-valley plant. Only a few centimetres high, the flowers have been beautifully reproduced. The other is a Japanese ivory okimono (EX177/230) of a man lying on the floor while his children stand on him. Both should fetch in the region of £60-£80.

Also on offer is large number of Sylvac and other pottery rabbits (EX177/70) in various shapes, sizes and colours. With estimates ranging from a few pounds to tens of pounds, let's hope they don’t breed.
