Sale Notes

In an action packed auction this week Bearnes Hampton and Littlewood have a broad range of items on offer at their auction rooms on Tuesday 19th June. Always popular is Moorcroft pottery and there is one lot that consists of two table lamps, both with tube lined decoration one with Anemones, the other with Hibiscus. The lot is expected to realise in the region of £80 to £100 (EX210/29) Another more unusual example of Moorcroft pottery is an ovoid vase decorated with puffins. It forms a lot with two other vases and is estimated at £70.(EX210/40) With summer upon us what could be more evocative of summer holidays than this oil on canvas by Jan Bevort Camprio [1917-1996] of an Italian lakeside town with figures seated at a bar. The picture will warm up any winter night with thoughts of people watching whilst sitting at a bar by Lake Garda or Lake Como. (EX210/170) Possibly one of the most famous statues is “le Penseur” by Auguste Rodin, the seated figure with chin resting on his hand deep in thought is often used as an image to represent philosophy. The first of this monumental bronzes was produced in 1904 it is believed that twenty eight were produced in total. The sculpture on offer is a late 20th century copy, much reduced in size being only 19cm. high and carries an estimate of £100-150. (EX210/231) At about the same time as Rodin’s “The Thinker” was being produced so to was this Arts & Craft beaten copper mug of plain cylindrical form, with antler handle. Stamped to the base is the makers initials GWG the makers name remains unknown. Estimate £50-70 (EX210/219) For sheer opulence how about your very own silver egg cup and stand contained in its own fitted case. Made in 1890 by William Gibson and John Langman who worked for the Goldsmiths and Silversmith Company, it was probably meant as a christening gift. The stand has a recess for that extra egg and a loop carrying handle to bring it to the table. The spoon is plated and doesn’t match, but it is expected to realise around £80. (EX210/105) For further information please contact www.bhandl.co.uk or Tel 01392 413100 All estimates are subject to a buyers premium of 21% plus VAT @20%
