Another highlight is a Chinese porcelain bottle vase (FS13/346), with raised flaring neck, enamelled in the famille rose palette with a pair of birds in flight. This beautifully decorated vase is expected to realise £500-£700.
In the picture section of the sale, a painting by Thomas Luny (1759-1837) of Teignmouth and the Ness with fisherfolk on the shore (FS13/22) is inviting bids between £4,000 and £6,000.
Also in the jewellery section of the auction, there is a stunning diamond mounted single stone ring (FS13/191), the central diamond estimated to weight 2cts, which has a pre-sale estimate of £2,500-£3,000.
