Sale Notes

It is often said that you should ‘start small’ when learning something new and what better way to start collecting antiques than with a couple of miniature pieces coming up in Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s next Antiques and Interiors auction of the 21st August. The small French carriage clock has all of the attributes of its larger counterparts but has the attraction of not taking up too much room in a modern house. Its sizable appeal and estimate of £60-80*(EX214/285) is attractive to those dipping their toe into the waters of antiques and collecting. For those who are into their field sports such as shooting or gun collecting, the miniature pinfire pistol by Maus of Germany would be an interesting start for a collection. Styled in the fashion of an 18th century flintlock with an octagonal barrel, a boxlock action and slab-sided grip, like the carriage clock it shares many attributes to its larger counterparts and so would be an ideal entry piece for anyone interested in antique weapons.(EX214/286) If your interest lies in the more traditional side of antiques such as ceramics and glassware, then included within the auction are these two First Period Worcester blue and white leaf moulded butter boats with an estimate £60-80*. (EX214/25) Dating from the early stages of porcelain manufacturing in England circa 1758-60 they would make wonderful pieces for anyone who wishes to start collecting works from the most significant period of English porcelain manufacturing. Perhaps rather than having items on display in a cabinet waiting to be dusted occasionally you may prefer something more practical like the boxwood and hardwood chess set, estimate £150-250*.(EX214/225) Its turned shaping gives a very tactile feel and is rather more appealing playing against a real opponent than on a laptop or tablet. Similarly the Canton mother of pearl gaming counters have wonderful engraved landscape scenes that would brighten up any card game. (EX214/ 226) Also included in the auction is a good selection of Furniture, Pictures, Silver and Works of Art. *All Lots include Buyer’s Premium of 25.2% incl. VAT @ 20%
