Following on from the very successful sale of Modern British Paintings from the Estate of the late Geoffrey Harley which was sold on the 7th February we will have the pleasure of selling the contents of his house Pickwick End at Corsham, Wiltshire. The sale will feature approximately two hundred and fifty lots of his private collection of decorative furniture, clocks and works of art. The collection is very diverse and includes early oak and treen, painted 18th century Portuguese furniture, decorative lighting and collectable bronzes.
The theme of the April sale is very much private collections and it will also feature items from the Estate of the late Dr J. S. Gordon. Dr Gordon or ‘Tim’ to his friends was an unstoppable collector and his tall house in Hammersmith was filled with antiques that reflected his diverse enthusiasms, including: African, Inuit, Tibetan and Central American objects, many that we have sold in the last six months in our Asian Art and Tribal sales. The highlight is lot 440, an early 19th century Italian Roman micromosaic and specimen marble centre table.
We are also delighted to be offering for sale selected furniture and works of art removed from Warrens House, Bramshaw, Hampshire. Warrens was principally designed by John Nash in 1801-1802 for George Eyre the scion of the Wiltshire land-owning family. The highlight of the collection is lot 511 a pair of Regency rosewood and giltwood side cabinets in the manner of James Newton.
Other collections in the sale include: walnut furniture from a European Princely Collection, items formerly at Gavelacre House, Longparish and the Roy Merley Collection of Bronzes removed from Plaish Hall, Shropshire.
