Sale Notes

Much of what is on offer during the next Fine Sale on 11th/12th July 2017 is traditional and antique in nature, but it is increasingly 20th century and more contemporary items that are finding favour with buyers.

Whilst the furniture section has a very attractive Anglo-Indian chinoiserie decorated cabinet on stand (FS35/1103), it also includes pieces by Liberty & Co, Heals and Ernest Race.

Likewise, the paintings include a highly unusual 17th century nude portrait of Lady Elizabeth Trentham (FS35/402) from the studio of Sir Peter Lely, but it also has modern British works by the likes of Fred Yates, David Eustace and Alan Cotton and a striking oil called Deux Chevaux by Dang Lebedang (FS35/477). Whilst Leon Underwood is known as an unaccomplished, painter, illustrator and engraver, his avant-garde bronze sculptures are keenly collected and the sale boasts two of them Samson & Delilah (FS35/909) and African Madonna (FS35/911). Less well known is Arthur Dooley. Originally a dockyard welder and Irish Guardsman, he worked as a cleaner in St Martins School of Art before becoming a student there. I think you’ll agree his bronze and steel work (FS35/913) does seem to reflect his past experience.

Amongst the usual tea services, bowls and flatware that are the mainstay of the silver department, there is plenty to interest those looking for something a little more decorative such as a dish by Omar Ramsden (FS35/58), a pair of Arts & Crafts candlesticks (FS35/120) and a group of Stuart Devlin silver champagne flutes (FS35/4).

The ceramic department is bolstered by a number of collections, which include Worcester Flight & Barr porcelain from the "O'Donaghue Collection", a single owner offering of commemorative ceramics and nine pieces of Lalique glass including a blue Phalanes pattern bowl (FS35/618) as well as a sensitively modelled Meissen porcelain figure (FS35/788) of Catherine the Greats favourite dog.

Finally, the sale has the largest jewellery section for years with over 200 lots on offer with several pieces expected to achieve in excess of £5,000. Amongst these is a stunning diamond riviere necklace (FS35/360) that contains 35 carats of stones, a diamond bracelet (FS35/252) with a mere 6 carats and a pretty Boucheron diamond and emerald flower brooch. (FS35/244)
