Manjusri is the Bodhisattva representing knowledge and wisdom in Mahayana Buddhism. The iconography is similar to that of Padmapani, but the addition of a book resting on the lotus denotes his powers of insight. In another commonly seen form he is depicted wielding a sword to cut down ignorance. The slender anatomical form, along with the unworked back of the figure are typical of the Western Tibetan style. The Pala influence from India is strong but the emergence of a distinct Himalayan idiom is evident. ÂŁ7000-9000

Lots 132 to 215 THE PROPERTY OF THE LATE HENRY BROWNRIGG

Henry Brownrigg 1943-2016 For almost four decades, a visit to Henry Brownrigg’s stand at Portobello Antiques Market was an essential fixture for aficionados of Indian and South-East Asian art. His eclectic range of unusual objects, whether bronze images, paintings or metalwork, reflected Henry’s enthusiasm and diverse interests which often strayed well beyond the world of Asian art. I first met him when working at Sotheby’s in the 1980s and over the years enjoyed our many conversations and professional dealings, invariably laced with humour. In business his reputation for absolute integrity was unchallenged. He died just before Christmas, having continued to work right to the very end. Despite the sadness, it is a pleasure to remember him through his collection of interesting and often eccentric objects.

The ider-ider is tied under the eaves of temple or palace pavilions and is long enough to go all the way round.

Lots 361 to 410 NETSUKE FROM THE JULIUS AND ARLETTE KATCHEN COLLECTION Julius Katchen (1926-1969) was brought up in New Jersey, the child prodigy of a family of Russian immigrants with three generations of accomplished piano players. He established a reputation early and was on the international concert circuit in his twenties, settling in Paris. He bought his first netsuke on a concert tour in Japan in 1953 and thereafter took time off from his professional duties when traveling to go netsuke hunting with his young wife Arlette. Together they rapidly put together a large and impressive collection, attending all the landmark sales of the legendary Mark T. Hindson collection at Sotheby’s London between June 1967 and June 1969, though Julius himself died of cancer a couple of months before the last. In the building of their joint collection, they were largely advised by Geoffrey Moss of Sydney L. Moss Ltd. Arlette Katchen continued to add to the collection for forty-five years after she was widowed, buying extensively, but not exclusively, from Moss and Eskenazi. In 2010 Mrs. Katchen published the major part of the collection in a 3 volume set entitled “Netsuke 7”. She has since died. I believe that the collection must have run to at least 1000 netsuke. Dispersals began with two sales at Sotheby’s London in November 2005 and July 2006, but as the second sale was not that successful, the process was halted. It was my privilege to sell a tranche of netsuke for the family between 2011 and 2014, and then to suggest that the rest be sold at auction. Following a successful sale at Bonhams London in November 2016, I am delighted to bring a further interesting selection to Matthew Barton Ltd.

467 A DUTCH DELFT FIVE-PIECE GARNITURE, DE METAALE POT (LAMBERTUS VAN EENHOORN), CIRCA 1700-1720 ‘Cashmire’ pattern, reeded octagonal outline, comprising an ovoid vase and cover, a pair of beaker vases and a pair of double gourd shaped vases, each painted with panels of birds flanking a vase of flowers and panels of flowers issuing from rocks inside diaper frames beneath a floral border, ovoid vase with painted LVE mark over 6 and p.515 to base and painted LVE mark to inside of cover, ovoid vase and cover 29cm. high Provenance: the Harward family of Winterfold House, Chaddesley Corbett, Worcestershire, by family descent. By repute within the family, the garniture belonged to the artist, Thomas Gainsborough (1728-1788), presumably becoming Harward property when Gainsborough’s great niece, Charlotte Gardiner (born 1805) married Thomas Netherton Harward in 1831. De Metaale Pot, a factory first established in Delft in 1670, produced its most brilliant work between 1691 and 1724, under the ownership of Lambertus van Eenhoorn (1651-1721). Strong Netherlandish influences on furniture and furnishings were felt this side of the North Sea, during the late 17th and early 18th century, following the accession of the Dutchman William and his wife Mary. It is probable that the factory (or an agent) exported these vases to England directly on manufacture. £5000-7000

468 A BERLIN LARGE GROUP ‘NEREID ON A HIPPOCAMPUS’, MID 20TH CENTURY modelled by Paul Scheurich in 1939/40 for the table garniture ‘Geburt der Schönheit’, showing the backward looking nymph astride the mythical beast who rears above the spume, on shaped plinth base, KPM underglaze blue sceptre mark and impressed F 42cm high Professor Paul Scheurich (1883-1945) won the commission to model a set of Berlin porcelain table decorations for the dining room in Ribbentrop’s newly refurbished palace of the foreign ministry, despite the fact that another set of designs by Trude Petri for KPM were already far advanced. The KPM director, Max Pfeiffer, disappointed by Petri’s Wagnerian themes, won over Frau von Ribbentrop with Scheurich’s drawings of mythical sea related subjects. The models were complete by 1940 for the room featuring a twenty metre long table, the ensemble themed ‘Geburt der Schönheit’ (Birth of Beauty), the centrepiece to feature The Birth of Venus (although it would appear this was never executed in porcelain) surrounded by large groups of Tritons and Nereids and smaller figures of sea sprites. For another example of this rare model, titled in German ‘Najade auf Hippocamp’ see Auktionshaus Bergmann, Erlangen, 15 March 2008, lot 277. Also see Christie’s, New York, 26 November 2013, lot 62 for a collection of eight other figures from the set. Associated literature: E. Köllmann & M.

According to the author, John (Jean) Derussat, brother-in-law of the working silversmith Aymé Védeau (Videau), may never have entered the mark which is struck on these teaspoons at Goldsmiths’ Hall. The attribution is made on the strength of similar teaspoons bearing the maker’s mark J.D incuse, thought to be that of John Andrew Derussat, who was both his uncle’s apprentice as well as successor to premises in Little Earl Street formerly occupied by Francis Harrache (1710?-1757) whose maker’s mark has been recorded on similar cast currant twig teaspoons.

One of Scandinavia’s pioneering industrial designers, his firm Bernadotte and Bjorn, later the Bernadotte Design Studio, was responsible for a number of significant industrial products ranging from kitchen equipment to tractors. Bernadotte first produced designs for Jensen in 1931 and continued to do so over a 50-year period. He was perhaps the first designer at the Copenhagen firm to work completely in the modernist style, acknowledging that his work was a reaction against the decorated styles of Jensen and Rohde.

Mechi 30cm wide John Joseph Mechi (1802-1880), specialised in dressing cases and shaving apparatus from premises in Leadenhall Street. When revenues for his ‘Magic Razor Strop’ dropped, following the increasing fashion for facial hair, he pursued another successful business in lamps for use outside shop-windows. Simultaneously he developed a model farm at Tiptree Heath, Essex and published his popular ‘How To Farm Profitably’ in 1857. Elected an alderman of the city in 1858, “The failure of the Unity Joint Stock Bank in 1866, of which he was a governor, and an unfortunate connection with the Unity Fire and General Life Assurance Office, caused him such heavy losses that, instead of becoming lord mayor, he was in August 1866 obliged to resign his aldermanic gown. Many bad seasons followed at Tiptree farm, particularly that of 1879, and at last, worn out with diabetes and broken-hearted, his affairs were put in liquidation on 14 December 1880. He died at Tiptree Hall on 26 December 1880.” (Dictionary of National Biography) £100-150

651 A GEORGE III SILVER TEA TUB (CADDY), THOMAS HEMING, LONDON, 1766 square, imitating a wooden Chinese tea chest, engraved to the sides in the workshop of Robert Clee with simulated planks and Chinese characters for ‘righteous’, ‘patriotic’, ‘loyal’ and ‘Chang’ (prosperous, glorious and good) within borders of scroll foliage on a linear ground, the flush-hinged lid with cast flower sprig finial and similarly bordered, on later ball feet with lead filling 9.4cm wide, 445gr (14oz) all in For an another caddy with exactly the same engraving (including the border details), but with a differing finial, marked Aaron Lestourgeon, 1768, see the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, No.WA1955.46 and another similar sold Sotheby’s, New York, 16 April 2005, lot 274, marked Parker & Wakelin four times, circa 1770.

651

Examples of this model of caddy or canister (called a ‘tea tub’ at the time) appear between about 1765 and 1773, many with Lestourgeon’s maker’s mark. Helen Clifford, in her book Silver in London: The Parker and Wakelin Partnership 1760-1776, (Yale University Press, 2004) reconstructs the fascinating system of outworkers who produced these caddies for Parker & Wakelin. The bodies were formed from sheet by Ansill and Gilbert or by Aldridge and Woodnorth for £1 8s. each, the former also supplying three sizes of sprig finial. Aaron and William Lestourgeon then fitted the locks and lined the interiors in lead for 5s. each. The borders and characters were subsequently engraved in Robert Clee’s workshop, opposite Parker & Wakelin’s shop in Panton Street, before delivery to the retailer. It would seem the process, from start to finish, took under three weeks. Apparently they were retailed by Parker & Wakelin for about £9. The same procedure would have been followed for the supply of these caddies to another leading goldsmiths of the day, Thomas Heming, who had been appointed Principal Goldsmith to the King in 1760. ‘The career of one specialist silver engraver, Robert Clee (c.17101773), has been studied in depth by Robert Barker. In addition to silver, Clee engraved a number of signed trade cards, including those of the chemist Richard Sidall and the goldsmith Thomas Heming. Barker has demonstrated that Clee’s establishment, which included both apprentices and outworkers, provided extensive engraving services for the prominent London retailers Parker and Wakelin as well as for Thomas Heming. Although it is impossible to distinguish among the various engravers he employed, it seems likely that much of the best silver engraving carried out during this period passed through Clee’s workshop.’ (Beth Carver Wees, English, Irish & Scottish Silver and the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, New York, 1997, pp. 338340) Interestingly Robert Clee’s will (National Archives, PROB 11/987) stipulates: ‘I give and bequeath to Mr Parker Mr Wakelin and Thomas Heming Esquire a Diamond Ring Each of the value of Ten pounds to be made by themselves’. £2000-3000 652 A PAIR OF GEORGE III SHEFFIELD PLATE CANDLESTICKS, PROBABLY MATTHEW FENTON & CO.

These salvers are listed with other items in a bill addressed to ‘Jas.

Betew.’ (The original of this bill is among the Brydges family papers, Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Stratford-upon-Avon) Elizabeth Godfrey (née Panten [sic]) was married to her first husband, the silversmith Abraham Buteux (1698-1731) at St. Paul’s Cathedral on 11 February 1720. Their son, the above-mentioned ‘Abm Betew’ [Abraham Buteux junior] was born in 1722. Following her husband’s death, Mrs Buteux was married for a second time at St. Benet, Paul’s Wharf on 6 February 1732 to the silversmith Benjamin Godfrey, a bachelor. Arthur Grimwade (London Goldsmiths, p. 524) suggests that the latter had been a journeyman to Mrs. Buteux. Widowed a second time when Godfrey died in 1741, she herself died in 1771, survived by her sons Abraham (d. 1776) and Panton (d. 1799) and daughter Hester Betew [Buteux] (d. 1774/76).

Introduction (a) The contractual relationship of Matthew Barton Ltd and Sellers with prospective Buyers is governed by: (i) these Conditions of Business for Buyers; (ii) the Conditions of Business for Sellers displayed in the saleroom and available from Matthew Barton Ltd; (iii) Matthew Barton Ltd’s Authenticity Guarantee; (iv) any additional notices and terms printed in the sale catalogue, in each case as amended by any saleroom notice or auctioneer's announcement. (b) As auctioneer, Matthew Barton Ltd acts as agent for the Seller. Occasionally, Matthew Barton Ltd may own or have a financial interest in a lot. Definitions “Bidder” is any person making, attempting or considering making a bid, including Buyers;; “Buyer” is the person who makes the highest bid or offer accepted by the auctioneer, including a Buyer’s principal when bidding as agent; “Seller” is the person offering a lot for sale, including their agent or executors; “MBL” means Matthew Barton Ltd, Auctioneers, 25 Blythe Road, London, W14 0PD, company number 6504692. “Buyer’s Expenses” are any costs or expenses due to Matthew Barton Ltd from the Buyer; “Buyer’s Premium” is the commission payable by the Buyer on the Hammer Price at the rates set out in the Guide for Prospective Buyers; “Hammer Price” is the highest bid for the Property accepted by the auctioneer at the auction or the post auction sale price; “Purchase Price” is the Hammer Price plus applicable Buyer’s Premium and Buyer’s Expenses; “Reserve Price” (where applicable) is the minimum Hammer Price at which the Seller has agreed to sell the lot.

(c) Without prejudice to Condition 4(b), any claim against MBL and/or the Seller by a Bidder is limited to the Purchase Price for the relevant lot. Neither MBL nor the Seller shall be liable for any indirect or consequential losses. (d) Nothing in Condition 4 shall exclude or limit the liability of MBL or the Seller for death or personal injury caused by the negligent acts or omissions of MBL or the Seller 5.

Bidding at Auction (a) MBL has absolute discretion to refuse admission to the auction. Before sale, Bidders must complete a Registration Form and supply such information and references as MBL requires. Bidders are personally liable for their bid and are jointly and severally liable with their principal, if bidding as agent (in which case MBL’s prior and express consent must be obtained). (b) MBL advises Bidders to attend the auction, but MBL will endeavour to execute absentee written bids provided that they are, in MBL’s opinion, received in sufficient time and in legible form. (c) When available, written and telephone bidding is offered as a free service at the Bidder’s risk and subject to MBL’s other commitments; MBL is therefore not liable for failure to execute such bids. Telephone bidding may be recorded.

6.

Import, Export and Copyright Restrictions MBL and the Seller make no representations or warranties as to whether any lot is subject to import, export or copyright restrictions. It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to obtain any copyright clearance or any necessary import, export or other licence required by law, including licenses required under the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

7.

Conduct of the Auction (a) The auctioneer has discretion to refuse bids, withdraw or reoffer lots for sale (including after the fall of the hammer) if (s)he believes that there may be an error or dispute, and may also take such other action as (s)he reasonably deems necessary. (b) The auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding in such increments as (s)he considers appropriate and is entitled to place bids on the Seller’s behalf up to the Reserve Price for the lot, where applicable. (c) Subject to Condition 7(a), the contract between the Buyer and the Seller is concluded on the striking of the auctioneer's hammer. (d) Any post-auction sale of lots shall incorporate these Conditions of Business.

8.

Payment and Collection (a) Unless otherwise agreed in advance, payment of the Purchase Price is due in pounds sterling immediately after the auction (the "Payment Date"). (b) Title in a lot will not pass to the Buyer until MBL has received the Purchase Price in cleared funds. MBL will generally not release a lot to a Buyer before payment. Earlier release shall not affect passing of title or the Buyer's obligation to pay the Purchase Price, as above. (c) The refusal of any licence or permit required by law, as outlined in Condition 6, shall not affect the Buyer’s obligation to pay for the lot, as per Condition 8(a). (d) The Buyer must arrange collection of lots within 10 working days of the auction. Purchased lots are at the Buyer's risk from the earlier of (i) collection or (ii) 10 working days after the auction. Until risk passes, MBL will compensate the Buyer for any loss or damage to the lot up to a maximum of the Purchase Price actually paid by the Buyer. MBL’s assumption of risk is subjected to the exclusions detailed in Condition 5(d) of the Conditions of Business for Sellers. (e) All packing and handling of lots is at the Buyer's risk. MBL will not be liable for any acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers

The Buyer’s Premium, Buyer’s Expenses and Hammer Price are subject to VAT, where applicable. 3.

4.

Examination of Lots (a) MBL’s knowledge of lots is partly dependent on information provided by the Seller and MBL is unable to exercise exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Each lot is available for examination before sale. Bidders are responsible for carrying out examinations and research before sale to satisfy themselves over the condition of lots and accuracy of descriptions. (b) All oral and/or written information provided to Bidders relating to lots, including descriptions in the catalogue, condition reports or elsewhere are statements of MBL’s opinion and not representations of fact. Estimates may not be relied on as a prediction of the selling price or value of the lot and may be revised from time to time at MBL’s absolute discretion. Exclusions and limitations of liability to Buyers (a) MBL shall refund the Purchase Price to the Buyer in circumstances where it deems that the lot is a counterfeit, subject to the terms of MBL’s Authenticity Guarantee. (b) Subject to Condition 4(a), neither MBL nor the Seller: (i) is liable for any errors or omissions in any oral or written information provided to Bidders by MBL, whether negligent or otherwise; (ii) gives any guarantee or warranty to Bidders and any implied warranties and conditions are excluded (save in so far as such obligations cannot be excluded by English law), other than the express warranties given by the Seller to the Buyer (for which the Seller is solely responsible) under the Conditions of Business for Sellers; (iii) accepts responsibility to Bidders for acts or omissions (whether negligent or otherwise) by MBL in connection with the conduct of auctions or for any matter relating to the sale of any lot.

Matthew Barton Ltd’s Authenticity Guarantee If Matthew Barton Ltd sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “Counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Matthew Barton Ltd. will rescind the sale and return the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Matthew Barton Ltd. for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The Guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is non-transferable. “Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Matthew Barton Ltd’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work (including, but not limited to, recolouring, tooling or repatinating. Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either: (i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; (ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Matthew Barton Ltd’s reasonable opinion);

(iii) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description. To claim under this guarantee the Buyer must: (i) notify Matthew Barton Ltd in writing within one (1) month of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and (i) return the Property to Matthew Barton Ltd in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale.
