Our 3rd July 2019 Furniture, Works of Art & Clocks sale will feature a number of notable collections. The sale will commence with over one hundred and twenty lots from the Estate of the late John F. Braund who ran Turpin's Antiques based in Thaxted in Essex. Along with his partner, Jane Sumner, they traded in Saffron Walden, Hungerford and London and exhibited at some of the finest antique fairs. The lots featured in the auction formed John's private collection based at his home, a converted Mill House in Essex. From treen to Windsor chairs, early boarded chests and burr tables the consignment is rich in objects of good colour, quality and rarity, a testament to John's keen eye.

Following on from the Braund Collection we are delighted to be selling sculpture, works of art and carpets from the Estate of the late Mrs Mhari Brodrick of Dunley Manor, Whitchurch, Hampshire. Highlights include a late Gothic polychrome decorated limestone figure of St. John the Baptist and a marble relief in the manner of the Italian late Gothic sculptor Tino di Camaino.

We are thrilled to be offering a fine 19th century North West Persian carpet of Harshang design on behalf of the Rt. Hon. The Earl Mountbatten of Burma. This wonderful carpet has graced Broadlands in Romsey for many years and is unusually almost square.

The sale will also feature items from the Estate of the late Professor Rodney Fitch CBE, design guru and founder of Fitch. This collection formed part of the contents of his country residence Court House in Aldbourne, the interiors of which were designed by Robert Kime. Highlights include: two fantastic Ziegler carpets and a good 
George IV burr oak centre table by William Owen of Denbigh.

Other highlights include: an impressive late 17th / early 18th century carved limewood relief panel depicting the Forge of Vulcan, formerly in the collection of Basil Ionides at Buxted Park, a fabulous collection of boxes, including: a Mughal ivory table cabinet, an early 18th century Vizagapatam writing box and a good Neapolitan tortoiseshell and mother of pearl casket. Finally the sale will feature three lots of furniture from Ston Easton Park, including a good George III serpentine dressing chest, and furniture and works of art from Lord Astor of Hever.
