New & exciting finds in the Jewellery & Silver page and a few pieces on the quick views of the current room layouts. Much more still to be posted. From the files and photographs we
have been sifting we have now matched some of the jewellery, faux fur coats (Astraka Brand) and hats worn by Diana Rigg during a Russian photo shoot in the mid '70's. Having brought back ALL of the
costume jewellery which was used in an illustrious career spanning the 1950's to the late '80's in advertising and promotional work for Ford and many other brand names we are tasked with sorting,
grading and selling it. There is A LOT, but we'll have some of the pieces available for sale from the weekend of 11th/12th May. Some of the pieces we acquired are now in the showrooms on the Art Deco
display stand on the first floor.
Some of the pieces from the estate, acquired by M&G, are now in the showrooms. If you can't visit, well have pics soon.
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.
