Sale Notes

With the recent television adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s The Pursuit of Love, there is sure to be plenty of interest in the enamelled gold and diamond set brooch depicting the Mitford crest (FS50/414), especially as it comes by direct decent from the family.

An equally famous name, when it comes to silver, is Omar Ramsden and the sale has two pieces by this notable silversmith: a silver mounted mazer (FS50/241) and a set of salts (FS50/240).

On Day Two, the Paintings contain their usual mix of old master and modern works. The former includes a charming portrait of the five eldest children of Charles I after an original by Van Dyck (FS50/683). Winifred Nicholson is positioned at the modern end of the painting spectrum and the sale has an unusual seascape ‘Sea Break’ (FS50/736), which is painted from a giddying gull’s eye perspective.

Keeping with the sea, the ceramic section has a Flight & Barr Worcester porcelain inkwell (FS50/1010) attributed to the Baxter studio, which is decorated with a sailing barge on choppy seas.

The star lot amongst the works of art is the uniform, medals and sword of Major General Charles Vyvyan Cox (FS50/1069) and the pick of the clocks is an early 18th century walnut marquetry longcase by Henry de la Fueille (FS50/1312).

The final day has a very large offering of 400 lots of furniture and rugs of which the most striking is a Flemish ebonised and red tortoiseshell and ivory inlaid cabinet (FS50/1652).
