14/02/2018 : February Auction Highlights
Some highlights from our February Auction
We had a fantastic February sale - the room was full of keen bidders, with hundreds more bidders online. There were some brilliant results, with many lots selling well above estimate and very few lots remaining unsold.
There was a wonderful collection of Worcester in the auction, with one of the star performers being this beautiful twin-handled ovoid vase with cover painted with swans and signed by C. Baldwyn, which brought £2,550. Other pieces in the collection included a pair of twin-handled vases on plinths painted with cattle and signed by J. Stinton, which sold for £2,300 and a twin-handled vase painted with sheep and signed by H Davies, which sold for £740.
Our silver section also did well with this rare George V hallmarked silver match striker in the form of an ear of corn by Sampson Mordan & Co. selling for £820 and a Victorian hallmarked silver trophy with repoussé and chased decoration with mare and foal to finial by Robert Hennell bringing £2,150.
Our art section was also well-represented, with two paintings by Harry Fidler RBA ROI selling for £2,000 each and an Arthur Dooley bronze sculpture, 'The Centurion' bringing £1,750.
Elsewhere in the sale, this Thomas Russell & Son 18ct gold full hunter pocket watch sold for £920 and twelve Banque du Congo Belge 5-franc notes from 1926 brought £2,150.
Our next sale is Wednesday 7th March 2018 at 10.00, with viewing on Tuesday 6th March 10.00-20.00
We hope to see you there!
