Two Day Fine Art Sale with European and Oriental Ceramics, Glass, Pictures, Works of Art, Clocks, Watches, Jewellery and Furniture with Internet Live Bidding.

This auction has 655 fine art lots.

Sale Notes

The next Fine Sale, as usual, includes silver, jewellery, watches, paintings, ceramics, glass, sculpture, works of art, clocks and furniture, but is particularly biased towards the Oriental with a broad selection of Japanese carved ivory okimonos and netsuke from the collection of the late RR Roberts, an exquisitely carved ivory momento mori (FS19/568) being a particularly good example. The Roberts Collection also features Chinese snuff bottles that include glass, mother of pearl, hard stone and jade pieces, most noteworthy being lot FS19/535.

Other Oriental highlights include a large and dramatic Japanese bronze group of two bears attacking a tiger (FS19/560) and a carved and painted wooden figure of Budha (FS19/527) and a broad selection of Chinese porcelain. A late entry to the jewellery section (FS19/167A), a 4.5ct single stone diamond ring (estimated at £10,000-£12,000) looks likely to attract plenty of interest, as are two oil paintings by Heywood Hardy, a master of the traditional countryside scene. The first is entitled The cup that cheers (FS19/231) depicting a huntsman taking a break and the other entitled The county smithy (FS19/231), which are estimated at £8,000-£12,000 and £6,000-£9,000 respectively.

If your taste is a little more quirky then there is a small collection of Martin Brothers stoneware; the choicest example being a double-faced barrister jug (FS19/431), which is a descriptive term for a jug with a face on both sides rather than a historical comment on barristers...or was it?

The sale is immediately followed the next day with an auction of some of The Nye Furniture Collection at our Honiton salerooms.
