The saleroom looks to be strong again for the coming Vintage & Collectables sale on Monday 12th October 2009. We have a varied selection of furniture including a Gothic Revival oak corner pew. It is an interesting piece and would make the ideal accompaniment to a kitchen dining table in a period environment.
Also in our saleroom this week with have several unusual items including vintage tin advertising signs in particular a 1950s “Brook Bond Tea is good tea” example. Though slightly damaged to the top right corner, it is definitely of the period, set with black bold type writing on an orange background. For all you tin sign lovers out there we have a rare Bovril sign titled “Alas! My poor brother”, underneath which, “Makes Contented Cooks” is written in bold type. Depicted is a long horn bull alongside a bottle of Bovril. This will be coming up in our Fine Art sale on Wednesday 18th November 2009.
For those of you more interested in the weird and wonderful we have a cased selection of surgical tools including those used by midwives. It is in excellent condition with some painful looking tools, the perfect gift for this Halloween.
Also coming up in the sale is a personal favourite of mine; an array of Wedgwood Limited Edition Clarice Cliff china comprising of plates, coffee cups, tea sets and so much more. These lots are the ideal gift for those Art Deco lovers out there, which want period style china for their collection.
