Sale Notes

The next sale at Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood is scheduled for Tuesday 6th November and has on offer plenty for those with one eye on Christmas. There is a large and colourful paisley shawl (EX219/308), one of two (EX219/301), that would work as both a striking piece of clothing or a throw. Traditionally based on the bright and expensive Kashmir silks of the late 18th century which heavily featured a Persian hooked teardrop shape known as a Boteh (which in turn resembled a bush). However the design was adapted from 1800 for use on five colour woollen looms and as most the popular fabric of this type was made in Paisley the name of the Renfrewshire town became synonymous with the pattern. Another lot of similar vintage comes in the form of a black lacquer snuff box decorated with a pair of hounds (EX219/274) and whilst the habit of taking snuff has largely gone there are always collectors for this form of bijouterie especially if the decoration contains a couple of rather quirky podgy canines. There is also a restrained silver mounted perpetual desk calendar (EX219/150) dating from 1955, you have to admire technology that stands the test of time, it would be a present that would be useful for many decades yet. You may also be tempted by a pair of Minton Secessionist vases (EX219/81) a highly popular range of pottery created at the turn of the 20th century, its appeal came partly from being Avant Garde but also because the range catered for a wide range of pockets. Lastly there is a German pottery tea service (EX219/51) of triangular form, unmarked, but likely to date from the 1950’s, probably completely impractical, but surely what the word funky was invented for.
