After a number of recent hugely successful specialist sales, Boningtons’ next offering marks a return to its regular fortnightly Interiors auctions. However, there is still a large quantity of premium antiques on offer with a significant selection of jewellery, silver, pictures, ceramics, works of art and much more up for grabs.
Boningtons have recently sold some very important paintings and Monday’s sale also includes some fine works by well listed artists such as several watercolours by Samuel John Lamorna Birch (1869-1955, pictured top right) & Arthur Edward Davies (1893-1989) as well as eye catching compositions by lesser known artists such as The Pool of London by Lieutenant H E Frecker (pictured top left).
Pictures were also amongst the highlights of Boningtons’ fantastic Country House Sale earlier this month. An early oil on ash panel depicting the Madonna and child attended by Saints (pictured) sold for £1450 against an estimate of £800-1200. Other significant results included an 18th century oak hall chair (pictured) which sold to an internet bidder for £1300 and some extremely decorative chinoiserie longcase clocks such as a 19th century work by William Jule of Bedminster which was knocked down at £950 and a similar piece by John Snelling which made £550.
The vast quantity of silver on offer included several unusual examples, not least a cased 19th century Dublin ceremonial trowel (sold for £700) and a silver tureen and cover by Garrard & Co (realised £1200). Further individual highlights included a Japanese Meiji period miniature cabinet made by the Komai Company of Kyoto (realised £550, pictured), a 19th century figure of a fallow deer (£800), and a Pietra Dura Blackamoor Table (£1200).
