Entering the saleroom, buyers will be immediately greeted by a pair of intriguing mid-century One Arm Bandit slot machines, the Jennings-Governor model showcasing a charming brass Native American finial head. There are some lovely examples of ethnographic art in the form of finely crafted African hardwood carvings consigned by a London vendor. Amongst these can be found an extensively decorated door attributed to the Senufo tribe, hailing from the Ivory Coast. This community of 2.5 million people are famous as world renowned musicians and superb carvers of wood sculpture, masks and figurines.   

We are fortunate enough to have a strong selection of continental silver on display in the form of an extensive German ‘Fiddle Back’ flatware service, weighing in at 3,000g. Piquing our interest is an unusual 18th century North European silver chalice attributed to Frederick Fabritius, decorated blue enamel bands of dragons, the circular base set with polished semi-precious stones. Victorian and Edwardian sovereigns also make an appearance alongside a 1974 South African Kruggerand.

No wall space has been spared to encompass our large picture section where you’ll find an eclectic array of artwork, ranging from 19th century portraits to contemporary Cornish naïve school paintings by local artist, Steve Camps. A collection of Nancy Bailey works are also on offer, as well as a selection of bustling street scenes by Manchester based, Lowry inspired artist, James Downie.

Our furniture section has an interesting early 20th century German walnut dining suite in the George II style.  What makes this a standout lot is the table comes with a set of twelve chairs, each seat with an individually embroidered cover.  It is rare to find such an extensive suite in such good condition.  In addition to the above we have an intriguing collection of Oriental furniture.  Most pieces date from the 19th century and still bare original wax export seals.  Of particular note we have a pair of miniature chairs, which are of an excellent colour and condition.
