There are some novel items coming up at Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood Antiques and Interiors Sale on the 4th April 2017. Included amongst these are two elegant mantel clocks, different is styles but only a few years different in age.
The first is an Edwardian mahogany, boxwood strung and inlaid mantel timepiece of lancet outline with easy to read large Arabic dial at 21.5cm high, it is the height of Edwardian elegance and practicality. The second mantel timepiece is twenty years younger and dates from the Art Deco period with an electric movement and case made from chrome and glass it sums up the optimism of the post-World War One generation shiny, new and different! Both are expected to fetch in the region of £40-£60 each.
Amongst the ceramics section are several novelty figures and characters from literature. Possibly the most striking is a Beswick pair of Mr Punch and Judy, they are limited edition figurines and quite scary. Not hugely valuable, they are expected to reach between £25-£35.
Equally of good fun are the Wind in The Willows characters, again by the Beswick factory, and include all the favourites including Toad, Mole and Ratty, again fun rather than valuable, the entire collection is estimated at £40-£60.
For anyone thinking of strawberries and cream this summer then there is nothing more practical than a pair of silver sugar casters dating from 1897. These late Victorian casters of cylindrical outline have heavily embossed floral decoration and stand 14cm, high. Again very elegant and affordable with an estimate of £60-£80. Still amongst the silver section are two similar and ever popular christening mugs: one being a George III example from 1808; the other a William IV mug dating from 1836. Both of cylindrical form with reeded decoration, they are expected to realise between £60-£80.
