Yesterday we started a new valuation in Tankerton and there are some good pieces coming. We have photographs of some pieces - a 5 drawer collectors cabinet and a burr walnut jewellery
chest of 3 drawers a large antique pine marriage chest, chests of drawers in mahogany and a large selection of fine table glass, decanters, and Moorcroft lamps. If you are looking for ANYTHING at the
moment we are likely to have it. Just get in touch. For security of our client we cannot post the pics on our website.
We've just posted in Furniture two beautiful desks, a very feminine small lady's desk and a campaign style gentleman's desk. Worth a look. Also some fine Victorian paintings on glass, some
1806 etched maps of Engand, Scotland, Asia and some 18th century etchings. We have a large quantity of silver handled cutlery by Garrard & Mappin & Webb and some new silver which we will post
at the end of this week.
Interesting & fine pieces newly posted in Jewellery &Silver page including a rare boxed set of Maundy Money, on the Curios Page a Bryant & May bakelite
box of Ship's Lifeboat Matches (with contents),
There are two new giclee prints of John Myett (his works are now on a par with Keating's (another reformed forger) in respect of value. We have a Paul Klee - The Storm and Les Trois Femmes
by Picasso. Worth a look.
Two new pieces in Furniture - Both C1730 - A spectacular original Gentleman's Toilette Cabinet and an oak drop leaf dining table with a wonderful patina.
We start the year with two major projects - mainly for specialist auctions - but we are always pleased to let you know if there is anything that might suit your current reuirements. Just
ask. We're here to help.
Precious Metals - Prices are curtrently creeping up - It might be a good time to liquidate some of those pieces you just keep in storage or under the floorboards.
