Furniture, Works of Art & Clocks - Day 2

Wednesday 21st April 2021. Starts at 10:00am



Our two day auction will start with over a hundred lots from the Estate of the late Jane Sumner. Jane was a well known and respected member of the antiques trade for over fifty years, trading as Turpin’s Antiques with her partner, John Braund. She traded in Essex, for a while on the Fulham Road and latterly in Hungerford and through prestigious antiques fairs across the country. Jane had a keen eye for early 18th century walnut furniture and had a particular passion for miniature furniture. The majority of the lots in the sale formed her personal collection which she had ‘squirrelled away’ at her much loved-period cottage home in Wiltshire. Highlights include: a William & Mary marquetry chest, a rare William and Mary studded leather linen chest attributed to Richard Pigg and a George I walnut bureau bookcase.

Following on from the Jane Sumner Collection we have a strong section of Folk Art and Country furniture with a small collection of treen animal snuff boxes, a George III sycamore and painted cricket table from a private collection and a 16th / 17th century Italian walnut credenza. Day one also includes a good selection of walnut furniture, with three early 18th century chest on stands and a fine William and Mary burr yew cabinet on chest. The highlight of the Georgian furniture is an unusual and rare late George II mahogany travelling bureau in the manner of Thomas Chippendale. Day two features good Regency furniture, including: a  Regency brass inlaid pier mirror by George Bullock, a good selection of carpets including two Zieglers and around eighty lots of walking canes from private collections, the highlights of which are some wonderful William and Mary ivory and pique handled canes. We are also delighted to be offering fourteen lots of Japanese netsuke and okimono, formerly in the collection of Sir Sydney Richard Wells, 1st Baronet (1879-1957) of Felmersham Grange.
