Sale Notes

If you are looking for a timeless view then there could be nothing better than that of sailing ships moored on the River Dart and that is why Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s next Antiques & Interiors Auction has an oil painting of such a view. Painted by the artist John Donaldson Square Riggers Moored in the Dart (EX194/165) should attract local interest with an estimate of £80-£100.

As well as a good selection of ceramics and pictures included in the sale, there are a number of pieces that would look quite at home in a contemporary house. The brass Art Nouveau jug and the ebony and porcupine quill box (EX194/248) would be ideal for a display of flowers and an interesting place for storing your car keys. At an estimate of £50-£60, they are far more of an investment than buying a trendy glass vase and paper storage box from a high street retailer, plus they have the added advantage of you being able to place them back into auction once you have finished with them!

The Victorian figured walnut stationary box (EX194/245) has some wonderful colour and would match a modern interior very well. Again, another bargain at auction for £50-£70.

Of course, there are plenty of pieces for the traditionalists like the pair of French bronzed figures (EX194/249) (estimate £40-£60), the Victorian silver bowl (EX194/114) (estimate £100-£150), and the Edwardian silver christening mug (EX194/112) (estimate £50-£60). Though these pieces are heavily decorated in the Victorian and Edwardian styles, you would only have to perhaps call them ‘Steampunk’ to attract the digital generation. If so, then the three miner’s lamps would be an ideal present for any Steampunk enthusiast to add to their home or Cosplay outfit.
