Following the success of last month’s military and coin auction, it is back to business as usual at Boningtons with one of our regular Interiors auctions set to take place on Tuesday 7th April.
Please note that our offices will be closed on Friday 3rd and Monday 6th April due to the Bank Holiday but will be open for viewing on Saturday 4th from 10am to 12.30pm.
Our Interiors sales continue to go from strength to strength and Tuesday’s offering is no different with our Loughton saleroom packed with well over 500 lots of jewellery, coins, silver, clocks & watches, pictures, furniture, textiles, ceramics, works of art and much more!
The auction looks set to get off to a strong start with some fine lots such as a gentleman’s Bulgari wristwatch in original box (Lot 85, £800-1200), a pair 18ct white gold diamond cluster earrings (Lot 32, £700-100) and a Victorian 15ct four heart unfolding locket and pendant, circa 1880 (Lot 46, £500-800).
There is a strong selection of coins and silver up for grabs which is proceeded by an equally healthy offering of pictures. Highlights include an interesting single collection of Czech paintings (Lots 173-178), a large, decorative oil on board after Renoir (Lot 210, £300-500) and other pieces by well listed artist such as James Kay, John Brunsdon, Bernard Meninsky, Maurice Cockrill and Sir John Verney.
Clocks are also in abundance, including a fine large early 20th century German bracket clock (Lot 309, £300-500) and a selection of ship’s clocks (Lots 299-303) which have been consigned alongside some striking early 20th century ship bells (Lots 393-395).
A single owner collection of handbags, including Fendi & Gucci examples, is already attracting strong pre-sale interest whilst there are also a number of quality rugs, tapestries and other textiles on view, not least some fine Oriental garments.
A very impressive selection of ceramics will draw the sale to a fitting conclusion. Some very notable pieces will go under the hammer in Tuesday sale, principally a beautifully pair of Royal Crown Derby twin-handled lidded urn vases hand-painted with exotic birds (Lot 478, £200-300), a 19th century Royal Worcester jardiniere hand-painted with floral decoration (Lot 453, £300-500) as well as some quality pieces of Moorcroft and Lladro; the glassware meanwhile includes amongst other things, a stunning Art Deco glass perfume bottle by Ingrid Czechoslovakia (Lot 499, £100-200).
Our next Interiors sale is on Monday 20th April.
