Sale Notes

Contained in Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s Antiques and Interiors auction is a kaleidoscopic selection of items and it’s all a matter of whether you are a tea or coffee lover. But first there is a matter of calling cards, a bit old fashioned but there are many collectors of card cases. There are two examples on offer in this auction the first is an Indian silver example of traditional rectangular form and decorated all-over with dancing figures and animals and is expected to realise about £80-100*.(EX217/225) The second card case is a blonde tortoiseshell example which has been inlaid with mother-of-pearl floral sprays to both sides of the case. This Victorian example is expected to fetch around £60*(EX217/307) If you are a tea lover then there is a fine three-piece tea service by S W Smith & Co., assayed in Birmingham in 1922. It is of plain circular form with ribbed girdle and has a very modernist look to it, the estimate is £250-300*(EX217/167) If coffee is your preferred brew then there is a six setting porcelain coffee set with silver mounts. The cans are by Ansley and would be able to contain a good strong expresso with style, the estimate is £60-80*.(EX217/68) On a more traditional note there is a Victorian silver mug with embossed decoration of birds amongst flowering shrubs, with scroll handle to the side. The makers are the Barnard brothers and the mug was assayed in London in 1870 and will fetch £60-80*.(EX217/169) The final item of interest is a relatively modern item which is a kaleidoscope by Darlene Musser, with a brass spy tube and two rotating discs with coloured mica, this optical toy is expected to fetch £50-70*(EX217/334) *NOTE: All Lots are subject to Buyer’s Premium of 25.2% incl.
