Furniture, Works of Art & Clocks

Furniture Dept April 2015

With our quarterly sales, we are able to offer a good selection of fine period furniture and works of art as well as catering for the more decorative 'interior' pieces. We sell single items to whole collections, from treen, tea caddies, truncheons and corkscrews. The vast field of works of art covers a wide and interesting area, recently selling a rare pair of mid 18th century Italian scagliola panels attributed to Don Enrico Hugford for £32,000. A massive bronze group of a musketeer on horseback by Isidore Jules Bonheur sold for £22,000 strengthening the demand for good bronzes. These sales also include carpets and rugs, lighting, fireplace furniture and garden statuary.

Our department is based at 2 Danebury Court, Old Sarum Park, Salisbury, SP4 6EB, which is ten minutes drive from the Castle Street salerooms, click for map. The sales are held at Castle Street.
