ICONIC YOUNGHUSBAND EXPEDITION ITEMS SELL FOR £140,000 IN DEVIZES.

H

enry Aldridge and Son’s first antiques and collectables sale of the summer on August 10th was one to remember. Alan and Andrew Aldridge spent July travelling around the region apprising a fascinating array of collectables for sale, a number of which went under the hammer with record breaking results. The pre-sale publicity for the auction was dominated by a unique archive of material from the infamous 1904 Tibet Expedition led by Colonel Francis Younghusband that was sold for £140000 by the Wiltshire Auctioneers with the Worldwide Reputation. The expedition was effectively a temporary invasion by British Indian forces under the auspices of the Tibet Frontier Commission. One of its most controversial elements of was the massacre of Chumik Shenko, one officer at the time wrote “I got so sick of the slaughter that I ceased fire, though the general’s order was to make as big a bag as possible,” wrote Lieutenant Arthur Hadow, commander of the Maxim guns detachment. “I hope I shall never again have to shoot down men walking away”. The archive was sold via direct descent from an Officer on the expedition and included over 140 original photographs taken during the campaign, it was first time the British were given access to the country. The images depicted the haunting beauty of the secluded country and brought pictures of Tibetan landscapes to the west for the first time including both military and civilian scenes. Estimated at £8000-£12000,

they sold to a telephone bidder for just over £12000. The sale also numbered material brought back by Captain Haymen from the expedition that included a small group of religious icons. Highlights were a Sino Tibetan deity gilt on white metal set with the remains of turquoise jewels showing Ushnishavijaya, measuring only 5ins in height it sold for an impressive £45000 and a truly stunning Sino Tibetan deity gilt on copper of Mahakala standing on a human figure holding a skull cap & chopper with a garland of skulls around his shoulders and waist, embellished with small turquoise, pink and blue stone mounted on a lotus stand. Although small in stature at 8ins it sold for £77000 to a buyer in the room against competition from phone bidders in China, Hong-Kong and the United States. The BBC Flog It! Cameras were in attendance to witness the record breaking prices in the saleroom and had a number of surprises of their own, not least a silver and brass teapot also from the Younghusband expedition that was estimated by one of the Flog It! Experts at £80-£120 making £2200, a very fine and highly desirable Longines oversized silver pilot’s wristwatch with sweep centre seconds and Weems second setting system made £4800 and a collection of 1960’s/70’s movie posters that went to a collector for a shade under £3000. A group of gold coins also sold well at £4000 proving the market was still strong.

A good section of Antique furniture went under the hammer on the 10th, with pieces from shortly after the Civil war being sold alongside material from the Aesthetic and Arts Gilt Mahakala that sold for and Crafts £77,000. movements of the late 19th and early 20th century. A beautiful early Georgian oak Dresser made £2300, a pair of 19th century card tables £3000, a Carolean oak chest of drawers £1600 and a lovely George III serpentine fronted chest of drawers achieved £1200. Henry Aldridge are now accepting entries for their September 21st Collectables and Antiques auction as well as holding their next free valuation day on August 29th.

September in the Garden

THE

MARKET

S

eptember is generally a cooler, windier month than August and the days are noticeably shorter. While there’s not as much to do in the ornamental garden at this time of the year, if you have a fruit or vegetable patch, you’ll be busy reaping the rewards of harvest. It’s also time to get out and start planting spring-flowering bulbs for next year. Make the most of the remaining warmth while you can! Top jobs this month: 1. Divide herbaceous perennials. 2. Pick autumn raspberries. 3. Collect and sow seed from perennials and hardy annuals. 4. Dig up remaining potatoes before slug damage spoils them. 5. Net ponds before leaf fall gets underway. 6. Keep up with watering of new plants, using rain or grey water if possible. 7. Start to reduce the frequency of houseplant watering.

8. Clean out cold frames and greenhouses so that they are ready for use in the autumn. 9. Cover leafy vegetable crops with bird-proof netting. 10. Plant spring flowering bulbs.

n Autumn wedding on the calendar? In fact any special occasion…. Look no further than Spirit for a great selection of outfits that won’t break the bank, and in our view represent superb value on the High Street. We’re so excited to introduce you to some of our fabulous new brands this season, including Forever Unique, (sexy body-con,) Tempest, (equally sexy glam dresses,) the French label Ingenue with its scrummy prints and clever draping detail, Danish designer St. Martins- confidently understated, in contrast to Smash our new Spanish brand with its quirky, artistic signature. Our long-term favourites Almost Famous, Great Plains and French Connection continue to produce some wonderful designs that can cleverly be dressed up or down, to use a hackneyed expression! But it’s true…. Nobody wants a once-worn wedding outfit hanging in the wardrobe gathering dust after its one and only wear. Many of our dresses look fab with evening accessories but equally good with chunky knits and boots. This is the bit we love, playing “dressing up”…. So, give yourself time, pop another hour on the parking meter and let us help you find that perfect outfit.

Situated in the picturesque Vale of Pewsey, Honeystreet lies on the Kennet and Avon Canal between Pewsey and Devizes. Honeystreet Sawmills and Country Store enjoys a reputation for providing a level of service rarely found in the modern world. There has been a sawmill at Honeystreet since 1811.

Today the canal is used mostly by holiday makers and boat dwellers, but Honeystreet Sawmills continues to deliver quality timber locally and nationally. The current owner, John Dunford bought the sawmill in 1997 and, through hard work and determination has expanded the business to include the Country Store, sheds@honeystreet and the latest addition to the Honeystreet family, the supply of logs for wood-burning stoves and open fires. Trade, wholesale and retail enquiries are all equally welcome and we look forward to hearing from you. We are OPEN: Monday to Friday: 8am to 5pm Saturday: 8am to 12noon

THE

Book Club ‘‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’’ by Robert Galbraith When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case. Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model’s complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger ...A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London - from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho - The Cuckoo’s Calling is a remarkable book. Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is a classic crime novel in the tradition of P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, and marks the beginning of a unique series of mysteries.

Wood Products

Silvia Shute lies in hospital in a coma. Family and friends gather at her bedside, each thinking they know the real Silvia. But do they? For Silvia hides a secret. One she can never tell. And as her visitors congregate so the truth about Silvia is slowly revealed. Again, and again and again ...Oh Dear Silvia is the brand new novel from one of Britain’s most loved comic writers and the number one bestselling author of A Tiny Bit Marvellous. “Hilarious. My top book...” (The Times). “Side-splitting, darkly humorous”. (Heat). “Written with serious intent, both literary and thematically: Dawn tackles the big ones - love, death, grief, childhood, motherhood, parenthood - head on”. (Guardian). Dawn French has been making people laugh for thirty years. On purpose. As a writer, comedian and actor, she has appeared in some of this country’s most long running, cherished and celebrated shows, including French and Saunders, The Comic Strip Presents..., Murder Most Horrid, The Vicar of Dibley, Jam and Jerusalem, Lark Rise to Candleford, and more recently, Roger and Val Have Just Got In. Her bestselling memoir, Dear Fatty, was published to critical acclaim in 2008. Her first novel, A Tiny Bit Marvellous, was also a great success, going straight to No.1.
