Sale Notes

Humphrey Bogart once said: "The problem with the world is that everybody is a few drinks behind". Whilst the next Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood Antiques and Interiors auction is not totally alcohol related, there are a few items that may be of interest to the tea or wine connoisseur.

The first item is a super silver caddy spoon, modelled in the form of a jockey’s cap, produced in Sheffield in 1925. It would make a splendid present for anyone interested in horses or horse racing. The estimate is £30-£50. Whilst at the races you may need a nip of 'the hard stuff' and a hip flask is the perfect answer. There are two in this sale in slightly different sizes. They come with slightly different estimates of £60-£80 and £70-£90.

The family firm of Guinness produced many novel items advertising their drink and included in Tuesday's sale is a set of Guinness advertising buttons contained in their original card box, with an estimate of £20-£30.

If wine is your tipple then there are several items that may interest you including a three decanter stand with an estimate of £30-£50. If you prefer your wine from a ewer then there is a fine Victorian silver plated and clear glass example and is expected to realise in the region of £100-£150. You will also need coasters to place the bottles on and there is a pair of silver plated examples of circular outline with turned mahogany bases with carry an estimate of £50-£60.

For a hostess serving up a light and fruity punch, which inevitably will include alcohol, then what better way of dispensing it than with a silver toddy ladle of oval outline with spiral twist whale bone handle. One lot contains two Georgian examples of toddy ladles and it is hoped they should sell for an excess of £80.
