23 EAA270/19 WEMYSS WARE RARE SMALL PIG FIGURE, CIRCA 1890 terracotta, covered in a black glaze, unmarked, minor restorations

Note: Only two other black terracotta Wemyss figures have appeared at auction in recent times; a cat, offered at William Hardie’s, Glasgow on Thursday 10th December 1992; and a small pig at Sotheby’s, Gleneagles on Tuesday 29th August 2006, Lot 218. Interestingly the Sotheby’s pig was also unmarked, however the figure of the cat was marked by the factory. This anomaly may suggest that terracotta figures were made in a commercial section of the pottery with other terracotta ranges, rather than in the Wemyss shop. Additionally each known terracotta example has been slightly smaller than its earthenware counterpart, probably due to differences in shrinkage in the kiln.

By 1842 the new national club had sought and obtained royal patronage, and it has ever since been known as the Royal Caledonian Curling Club. From 1838 onwards the game exploded in popularity until by the last decades of the nineteenth century every county had at least one club affiliated with the Royal Club, and almost every parish in the land had its custom-made curling pond.

LY O N & T U R N B U L L Scottish Silver and Accessories

The ovoid coffee urn is perhaps the most unique design seen in Scottish silver; where the inspiration for this design emanates from still remains a mystery. Even the use of these urns has caused debate and the general consensus seems to be that of a coffee urn. Previously often termed water urns, this now appears wrong. During the period of these urns manufacture (circa 1719-1767) and particularly within the height of their manufacture (circa 1730 -1750) the number of standard pouring coffee pots is minimal. This and a reference in the John Rollo, Goldsmith Edinburgh, account book 'To one Coffe poot 62 oz 2dr at 7sh 6pe per oz - £23 - 5 - 8' and the survival of this piece adds great

weight to the theory of their use being for coffee. Their functionality also is worthy of note, when it is considered that within contemporary accounts coffee is considered medicinal and should ‘be drunk as hot as one can bear’ the shape combined with the use of a burner (now lacking in most of extant examples) would have meant the contents could have been kept hot. While most of the surviving urns have now lost their burners, most (including this example) show signs of their use. The underside point of the urn (where most are marked) would have become polished out with the vigorous cleaning needed to remove the staining left behind by the burner.

The survival rate of these urns is extremely small with only fifteen currently recorded, and ten of these in institutional hands. The design of these urns seems to vary more by the period than maker, with the main flare of the maker coming in the outline shape of the body; they can vary in shape from elongated egg shaped to more compressed squat bodies. While the marks to this example are now all but obliterated from polishing, it does seem possible to suggest a maker, when the whole survival of these urns is compared and stylistic trends noted. Firstly the most prolific maker / workshop seen with the extant examples are unsurprisingly that of James Kerr / William Dempster, who would laterally become Kerr & Dempster. They were one of Scotland’s most highly regarded goldsmiths and received many important commissions for the highest fashion silver of the day, it is therefore unsurprising that his marks are seen to the large percentage of these urns. Also the design and quality of this urn is of note in many features. Firstly the quality of the chased decoration, the deep and bold decoration could only have come from a very high quality Edinburgh workshop such as Kerr & Dempster. Such is the quality of the chasing to this urn that it has previously been considered to have been the hand of Ebenezer Oliphant considered one of Edinburgh’s finest chasers. Secondly the cast snake arms are of a mould recorded on other Kerr & Dempster urns, access to a prepared mould in the workshop must suggest a place of manufacture similar to the other urns featuring these handles. While

this is the only urn with the textured finish to the handles this would have been added after the cast had been made. Thirdly the cast legs and importantly the appliqué between body and leg, are from the same mould as seen on other Kerr & Dempster urns. The crossover of makers using the same moulds and patterns for handles, legs and spigot does add some confusion to these theories but the majority of urns using these moulds can be tied to the Kerr & Dempster workshop and must be considered when trying to attribute this urn to a specific maker. Due to the fact that the Assay Masters mark of Hugh Gordon is still visible to this urn proves it must have been made 1744-1758, this does suggest that the most likely period of the Kerr & Dempster workshop would have been under the control of William Dempster, rather than Kerr and is considered that his name is the most obvious to be tied as maker of this item. While it has not been possible to prove William Dempster the maker of this urn it does now seem highly probable.

To date only nine hallmarked or provincial examples are known and this example being the earliest. It is unknown why this pattern should be so rare in Scotland when it is such a standard and comparably common pattern in English silver. It must be considered that a large number have been melted down and re fashioned throughout their history and lost. However even when compared to the other patterns of early Scottish

50

flatware their survival still seems remarkably small. Even within such a small survival fashions and trends can be noticed. While following the English examples the Scottish made pieces do show variation. Due to its early manufacture this piece must be considered one of the plainer examples, virtually without additional decoration to the stem, other than the almost standard three V cut notches to terminal. The addition of the simple incised decoration above the bowl being it’s only additional adornment and unique to this spoon. For a full listing of currently recorded Scottish Puritan spoons see ‘An important new discovery in early Scottish silver’ The Finial September / October 2008. Another interesting angle to this spoon are the engraved owners initials to the reverse of the bowl; with the original source of Barncleuch, it does appear that the upper initials ‘QH’ stand for Quintin Hamilton of Barncleuch and it must be assumed the lower set ‘MD’ for Marion Denham his wife, the date of marriage so far remains untraced but is presumably roughly contemporary to the spoon. Little is known about Quintin Hamilton other than he succeeded his father James Hamilton and took

over the house and gardens at Barncleuch which had been constructed by his grandfather John Hamilton of Barncleuch, Commissary of Hamilton and Campsie in 1583. While the house at Barncleuch was of no great note within Scottish stately home architecture it was the gardens created by John Hamilton that really stood out. These terraced gardens he created with great vision and ambition carving five terraces into the steep hillside from the house to the river Avon and carried out large amounts of structural work. His visions and creations were no doubt inspired by his experiences travelling the world which consumed a large part of his life. Quintin and Marion are believed to have had five children and upon Quintin’s death in circa 1680 he was succeeded by his eldest son John who in turn died on 21st February 1705 without direct heir.

The use in this punch of a * between the initials ties this punch to the hand of William Dempster. As can be seen with various maker’s punches throughout Scottish silver, it was common for makers registering punches to follow closely that the style of their master or a workshop they had or were connected with. This * between shows great similarities to the partnership punch of Kerr & Dempster and also the serrated outline and style of lettering backs this theory.

After this point they appear (as with England) to become a standard on the upper classes table. Their use as with dish rings, or Irish ring dishes, is simple, to keep hot plates from damaging the surface of

highly polished wooden tables. It is f for this reason that while available as standard the addition of a burner was at the choice of the buyer and not necessarily issued as a standard with the piece. While it has often been debated that examples such as this are lacking burners, this would seem unlikely as such a high proportion of Scottish examples are found this way. The lack of a burner would not necessitate a change in design and when the central loop section also provides the hinging action it seems highly likely that these would be left in rather than have to re design a whole item.

He was apprentice to Patrick Murray of Edinburgh and worked as journeyman for James Gillieland before becoming a Freeman in 1751. His career was a turbulent one and at times not always successful. For a time he made and marketed his patent silver microscopes but after this became a successful jeweller. In 1771 he was forced to give up business for financial reasons and began work as a journeyman again. In 1781 he was elected joint Assay Master with George Auld and continued in this role until his death in 1798.

Note: This very unusual ‘flying’ scroll figural handle forms part of a small survival of Scottish silver. Although rare, both dolphin and snake formed handles are known but in only very small numbers, while the S scroll ‘flying’ handle must be considered a standard of the period. Of dolphin formed examples it appears as few as six recorded examples exist (including a pair, counted as one), the earliest being by William Dempster (or possibly Davie), Edinburgh 1743-1744. Of the six known examples surviving, they are only produced by three makers, William Dempster (or Davie), Robert Gordon and Ebenezer Oliphant all of Edinburgh, with Robert Gordon with four of the six bearing his mark. One thing all these maker have in common is the continual highly quality and fashionable work they produced, and in fact it is not surprising they are the makers who produced these unusual items.

This example is within the central (and most prolific) period of manufacture with three dated for this year. There is no apparent reason for this small survival (and by association assumed manufacture), except to consider that the fashion for this type of ware was not as high as with English and indeed American markets, where these items are considered much more of a common standard.

The overall style and design feature are interesting and very comparable to other facets of period work. The everted rim is obviously similar to pedestal sugar bowls, cream boats etc and the terminals and hoof feet supporting it show very visible comparables to cream boats of the period.

The design of this spoon is of particular interest as this unusually shaped terminal appears to suggest a transitional period between the Dog Nosed and Hanoverian patterns, often termed spatula.

301 EAB55/21 An impressive early Queen Anne hash spoon by Colin McKenzie, Edinburgh 1703-1704, Assay Master James Penman, of transitional variant of Dog Nosed pattern with wide terminal with moulded central section, the obverse of the stem engraved ‘M / NM/ LD’ and the reverse engraved with script initial D, the large bowl with large slender pronounced rattail 43.5cm long, 12oz Note: This hash spoon is remarkable on many counts, not only its extraordinary size and weight but also its early manufacture and design. This is the earliest recorded hash spoon in Scotland with the next confirmed examples both dating to 1707-1708 (by Mungo Yorstoun and James Tait of Edinburgh), placing this the earliest by four years. Also the size and weight of the spoon is unusual with it being almost twice as heavy and a third heavier

64

respectively than the next two recorded examples. When considered alongside the more standard table spoons of the period (with an average weight of around 2oz) iit s six times heavier. This large size has also necessitated slight changes in design to allow for the proportions, firstly the moulded central point to the terminal appears to be so that the spoon balances when displayed on a table to show hallmarks (as fashion of the period dictated) and secondly the long and muscular nature of the rattail to support the large deep bowl. Although the date letter struck to this piece is very worn, there can be little doubt to the attribution. From the remaining outline of the punch it is obviously a shaped cartouche and not a straight sided punch, this combined with the clear Assay Masters mark of James Penman must place it to 1704 or earlier, as his tenure as Assay Master ends in 1707, and straight sided date letter punches are started in 1705.

302 EAB55/40 A William III thistle mug by Edward Penman, Edinburgh 1701-1702, Assay Master James Penman, the tapering body with flared upper section with bold reeded girdle, the lower straight sided section with semi spiralled chased gadrooning with alternating large and small sections, with a reeded S scroll strap handle with graduating beaded rat tail, the whole resting on a simple reeded collar foot 9.5cm high, 4oz

Note: This early 18th century thistle cup is interesting in many ways. Firstly the maker’s mark struck for Edward Penman is struck only one year after he is created a Freeman of the Incorporation, and shows how even a relatively new silversmith was gaining interesting commissions even at a very early stage in his career. In this instance without doubt due to his family connections and history within the trade, note his Fathers mark as Assay Master. The decoration is always worthy of note, and while lobed decoration to the lower sections of thistle cups is virtually standard, the varieties noted within this style is interesting. This example with chased semi spiralled lobes / gadrooning is interesting as is obviously very different to the standard applied decorations more commonly seen.

He is recorded as making various souvenir wares from oak from the Auld Brig of Ayr and also the style of engraving to the shield plaque seems very similar to other items known to be by his hand (also see the two proceeding lots)

326 EZ606/1 Ballater - a Scottish provincial Royal presentation plaid brooch by William Robb of Ballater, marked ROBB / BALLATER (in triangular punch), Edinburgh 1902-1903, of annular form with engraved panels of Celtic knot work and four Celtic bosses, inscribed to reverse ‘19 ERI 03’ 8.7cm diameter, 3oz Note: This plaid brooch is of the pattern worn by the Balmoral Highlanders. William Robb was commissioned on many occasions by King Edward and his mother Queen Victoria to make silver for the Royal family and also utilitarian wares for the dress uniforms of the Balmoral Highlanders. The Balmoral Highlanders were formed from the estate and household workers at Balmoral and performed ceremonial duties at the castle for state occasions and also at the local Highland gatherings etc. While the main order for uniforms from Robb was placed in 1904 earlier examples such as this do exist. The later engraved inscription to the reverse does seem to suggest that when the recipient left the estate employment he was presented with this piece. The main order placed to William Robb for Balmoral Highlanders uniform accessories in 1904 was for a complete set for twenty five men. The Highlanders had been in existence for sometime previous to this and had been in varying forms for over 30 years

While he was only there for a brief and as yet unknown period, he registered his first official and ‘local’ hallmarks there. Items struck with the KO’N punch are extremely rare and survive in only a very small number.

Particularly when considered among the survival of provincial silver across Scotland. George Elder was a very accomplished Banff maker and this is most often seen through his high quality production of flatware, among the small survival of his holloware items such as Communion beakers, brandy pan (Lyon & Turnbull Murray Collection 20th August 2003 lot 243, item and marks illustrated) and spirit labels are known. Although only struck with maker’s mark ‘GE’ twice, the unusual proportions of the punch and slightly unusual font of the lettering are noted on fully marked Banff flatware attributed to this maker.

Firstly the pseudo date letter (gothic Y) struck to the stem is an obvious copy of the Edinburgh date letter for 1703. Secondly the Scratch weight 11o (oz) 5d (drops) under the engraved initials is slightly unusual to be found on spoons and indeed even more so as it is for the combined weight of the six rather than each individual spoon.

The proportion by their hands is much higher than one would perhaps expect when it is considered the number of quality silversmiths in the town at the time.

While enamel work would form a large part of Ritchie’s higher end work in jewellery, purple is a color very rarely seen, the standard patterns feature shades of blue, and occasionally red and yellow but this attractive shade seems to have been rarely used.

Note: While etched and engraved blades for Victorian military dirks are not uncommon it is very unusual to find such engraved scenes to the blade of a civilian dirk. It is possible that the scenes denote part of the dirks history and suggest it is possible a ghillies dress dirk for a large Highland estate. It is recorded that after Queen Victoria (and later monarchs) started the fashion to supply dress wear to estate staff some of the larger estates followed suit, this was often incarnated in official tweed and tartans for workers but in some cases went further to Highland Dress accessories.

420 EZ680/2 A mid 16th century lace work panel the simple border enclosing a panel of a lion passant facing right with paw raised on shield, mounted and framed with accompanying mid nineteenth century hand written note ‘lace worked by Mary Queen of Scots, while in Loch Leven Castle, lent by Mrs Coleman’ and further exhibition card from ‘Festival of Britain Arts and Handicrafts Exhibition July 1951’ panel 9cm x 9cm Exhibition: Festival of Britain Arts and Handicrafts Exhibition Provenance: Private Collections Tremblath & Wells Auctions, Essex, circa 1969 Private Collection References:: For similar work in the hand of Mary Queen of Scots, see ‘The Needlework of Mary Queen of Scots’ Margaret Swain 1973, page 32 plate 11 Note: The accompanying 19th century note stating, ‘lace work by Mary Queen of Scots, while in Loch Leven castle’ is an interesting but hard to substantiate provenance. It does however add a great deal of interest to the item, and at a particularly emotive time of her life during her marriage and imprisonment in 1567. Research into the possibility does add interest and weight. From Margaret Swain’s book on the lace work of Mary, we can see that this type of panelled work was obviously the fashion of the time and the lion passant seen to this piece is also within the vein of animals and heraldic representations seen within the illustrations in plate 11 by Mary Queen of Scot’s hand. Mary’s interest and skill in needle and lace work are well recorded and such

work would certainly have been within her skills. The mention of worked in ‘Loch Leven castle’ also ties to a very turbulent and well recorded period of her life. While Mary was imprisoned at this time she was not held within a cell and appears to have lived life while not in the full comfort befitting a Queen, certainly not at the level of a prisoner and her time would have been spent in her interests and pursuits. During the Festival of Britain in 1951 many satellite exhibitions were held to coincide with the main events such as the ‘Festival of Britain Arts and Handicraft Exhibition, Danbury Village Hall’. This was a time of great renewed interest in all things British and the varied and important historical past of the country. To this end the satellite exhibitions held many displays with relics and important art and antiques from local museums, institutions and family collections. Sadly no catalogue of this exhibition can be traced to give further details.

by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer or our employees or agents or the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 “information to buyers”. (2) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 16. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any Lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer's premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale. GENERAL 17. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 18 (1) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (2). Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them. 19. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 20. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary appearing at the commencement of the catalogue. 21. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect. 22. Scottish law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.
