We've just brought in a large selection of fine cutlery, a Victorian dining suite and several pieces of silver. Also some fine Victorian paintings on glass, some 1806 etched maps of
England, Scotland, Asia and some 18th century etchings. Just posted some of our recent Oriental bits, a superb Art Deco Drinks Trolley from a Parisian Restaurant and a spectacular piece of
Scandinavian Glass sculptural crystal reflectors/refractors.
The other bits will be posted (hopefully) by the 24th.
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.
Precious Metals - From it's peak in late 2011/2012 Gold has continued a steady decline (dragging other metals with it) and despite Brexit, Euro problems in some European
economies, and of course - Mr Trump - money is not flowing into the 'safe haven' gold used to be. We pay the published price/weight calculated at 2pm daily. Full testing facilities are available for
metals & stones.
