Decorative Art


The Decorative Arts section of our auctions are varied and exciting; they are the definitive section of the sale where potential buyers are guaranteed to find something unusual and inspiring to buy.

This section of the sale often includes small pieces of furniture, bronzes, clocks, lighting, textiles, mirrors, treen and other decorative items. This is where we often sell contents of houses and estates, with buyers drawn by the diversity and quality of the range of lots we offer.

One of Catherine’s personal favourites was the collection of bronzes by contemporary sculptor Tom Merrifield. This was a small section but included some extremely attractive bronzes which showed great movement; these sold for a hammer total of £6,200 (plus premium). A number of 1920’s Art Deco figurines have also achieved favourable results in recent years in our sales, including a small ivory figure of ‘A young lady powdering her nose’ by Ferdinand Preiss which fetched £4,000 (plus premium).

Clocks have featured heavily within this section, and we have sold everything from miniature 1920s silver and enamel clocks by Asprey to 18th century lantern and table clocks. However our highlight is undoubtedly a George III Mudge and Dutton clock which sold for over £13,500 (plus premium).


A Persian bone inlaid cabinet. Sold for £650 (plus premium).

 


An early 18th century silk needlework and stumpwork picture. Sold for £1,050 (plus premium).


A George III mahogany table clock by Thomas Mudge and William Dutton. Sold for £13,500 (plus premium).

 


A large Arts & Crafts brass and enamel charger. Sold for £600 (plus premium).
