Sale of Fine Art, Antiques and Collectables commencing with nearly 400 lots of silver and jewellery, including this set of Sampson Mordan silver and enamel menu/place card holders (lot 5).
There are over 1,000 lots going under the hammer across the two days, with militaria, fine arts, furniture, vintage clothing and paintings all well represented in strong sections.
Viewings on Friday afternoon (2-4pm) and Saturday morning (10am-1pm) or on sale days from 8.30am. Bidding is in person, absentee, telephone or online.
Specialist highlights – an Emile Louise Picault bronze of Perseus and Pegasus with the head of Medusa (lot 525), Clarke, James: A Survey of the Lakes of Cumberland, Westmorland, and Lancashire (lot 908) from the antiquarian books section, and a Januarius Zick oil painting entitled The Descent of Christ (lot 873).
The collection is presented in seven handmade oak and glass display boxes, which are lined with soft felt. It numbers approximately 250 badges and dates from the late 1800s onwards, charting not only the changes in military headgear (the badges get progressively smaller to suit the changing styles of headgear) but also the history of regiments. There’s a short piece about the collection in the news section in their website.
Unique and highly collectable lots including two Patrick Eggle (Linville and Saluda) guitars played by Frank Turner, a Gibson A1 Mandolin previously owned by Dave Swarbrick, Roy Orbison’s first LP from New Zealand, and a huge selection of vinyl including rare reggae, 60s & 70s.
