Antique books for auction

We are now open for viewing for our forthcoming Interiors sale on Monday 6th October. With around 550 lots on offer there is sure to be something to suit all tastes amongst an eclectic range of jewellery, coins, clocks & watches, silver, pictures, furniture, militaria, ceramics, works of art and much more.

Antique postcards and letters

A heavy 18ct Greek key and flat curb bracelet and necklace leads the jewellery (Lot 91, £2000-3000), alongside a dazzling platinum and diamond bow ring (Lot 74, £1500-2000).

 Doulton Lambeth figure of 'Madame Pompadour

Another highlight comes in the form of a Victorian medal group to Sergeant Thomas Stevens who served 21 years in the 31st Foot Regiment and then 18 years with the Militia as a Chelsea Pensioner. The group consists of a China medal, Taku Fort Bar, Crimea medal, Sebastopol Bar, Army LSGC, Turkish Crimea medal and Sutlej Campaign Medal, together with paperwork and photograph of the recipient (Lot 315, £600-800).

 Westminster Bridge by Gordon Hale Artwork

As always there are a good number of fine pictures gracing the saleroom walls with both traditional and modern artists well represented by the 70 works up for grabs, including a very fine watercolour depicting Westminster Bridge by Gordon Hales (Lot 214, £80-120).

Solitaire ring

An extremely rare Doulton Lambeth figure of ‘Madame Pompadour’ is the pick of the ceramics, designed by John Broad (active 1873-1919) who worked for Doulton for most of his career. Estimated at £300-500, it looks sure to attract good interest when it goes under the hammer in Monday’s auction.

The Military & Coin sale at the end of last month drew some extremely competitive bidding both within the room, on the internet & via telephone, resulting in some very significant sales. Highlights included a propeller from a 1930`s Bristol cherub (£840), 92 WWII Press Release photos of downed and crashed German aircraft during 1941-44 (£740) and a Japanese Edo Period sword signed “Hizen Kuni Tadayoshi” (£460).

We are now accepting final entries for our specialist auction of Fine Art & Antiques on November 19th. Our next Interiors sale is on Monday 20th October.
