Sale Notes

Depending upon what advice you find on the internet, the top interior design trends for 2019 could be anything from ‘70s classic’ to ‘Boho’ with a twist. However, no matter what you decide, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s first Antiques & Interiors auction of 2019 has plenty to fulfil any style of interior fashion. For example, the Archibald Knox designed Tudric vase for Liberty & Co., may be over 100 years old but will certainly fit with the 2019 trend of ‘mixed metal accents’, combining silver and pewter pieces for decoration. It also fits with the design ethos of ‘artisan pieces’ that is expected to become a top 2019 trend. Archibald Knox is perhaps one of the most famous designers of the Art Nouveau period which itself was inspired by individual craftsmanship and design, with an estimate of £100-150* (EX222/330) it’s a perfect opportunity to acquire a piece of his work. Two other trends we are supposed to be aware of in 2019 are floral patterns and Art Deco design, so where better than at an auction to find original pieces that match the criteria. The Lalique ‘Marguerites’ pattern glass bowl (Estimate £120-150*)(EX222/2) with its floral relief mould edge meets one aspect while the Lalique ‘Figurines’ glass dates from the high Art Deco period itself. As Christmas and the New Year have passed it’s only a matter of days before Easter Eggs start appearing of the supermarket shelves, why not get ahead of the game as well with the Edwardian silver pin cushion in the form a chick by Sampson & Mordon (Estimate £50-70*)(EX222/208) As Virtual reality technology develops with some of the latest games consoles where better to discover the origins of 3-D than with Brian Mays book ‘A Village Lost & Found’(EX222/327) Perhaps known to most as the guitarist with Queen, his lifelong passion for stereoscopes and 3-D photography continues and here is an opportunity to discover how it all began. So whatever 2019 holds in store for us all, certainly Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood will have something for everyone in the auctions ahead. *NOTE: All Lots are subject to Buyer’s Premium of 25.2% incl. VAT @ 20%
