Sale Notes

Although Arthur Henry Enoch was born in Wales, he spent much of the late 19th century living in Dartmouth, Torquay and Newton Abbot, so it is little wonder that much of his work features the landscapes of south and mid-Devon. Included in this sale is a good example of his work entitled Burning the furze, Dartmoor. (EX262/523). Swaling as it is known locally is used to encourage grass growth for cattle and whilst it still occurs it is strictly controlled, though I’m sure you’ll agree Enoch has made the practise look charming and bucolic.

Another item with local connections is a bronze skillet bearing the motto Bee Constant which was cast in the late 17th century by Francis Sturton of Bridgwater (EX262/325) and looks to bear all the wear and tear of countless winters in the hearth.

Also in the sale is a George III silver marrow scoop, an invaluable item if your favourite part of a roast dinner is inside the bones, but something rather fallen out of regular use. (EX262/185)

On the run up to Christmas, there is sure to be plenty of interested bidders for an inlaid mahogany decanter box and stand that has two fitted compartments for Hollands (gin), and one each for brandy and rum.

Also on offer amongst the furniture is a rather restrained William IV rosewood pier cabinet that has a variegated marble top that would forgive the clumsiest of drinkers (EX262/624).

Finally, if your taste is for the more avant garde then perhaps you might like the abstract bronze sculpture attributed to Edmund Dudley, consider it a present to yourself. (EX262/367)
