Marian, Lady Rootes. 10


William (Billy), the first Lord Rootes with Ramsbury Manor beyond.

FOREWORD Marian Rootes was the widow of Geoffrey Rootes, the eldest son of William Edward (Billy) Rootes who founded Rootes Motors. This sale brings together some of the finest works of art collected by two generations of the Rootes family during the years when the Rootes motoring empire was at its peak. The Rootes story starts with Billy Rootes's father, William, who ran a bicycle shop in Hawkhurst, Kent and began selling cars in 1895. Billy shared his father's mechanical interests and went to work for the Singer Motor Company as a penny an hour apprentice at the tender age of 15. He soon progressed to selling Singer cars and the dynamism that marked him as a future entrepreneur became apparent at this time. After serving in the naval air service in the First World War, he was demobbed and founded Rootes Motors with his brother Reggie. The brothers set about establishing a network of car showrooms throughout the country selling British car marques. Such was their success that by 1926 they had opened Devonshire House, the palatial flagship Rootes showroom and headquarters that dominated the north side of Piccadilly at Green Park. The next step was to take over many of the small car manufacturers whose cars they were selling and rationalise their production. Thus Humber, Hillman, Sunbeam and Singer came under the Rootes Group banner.

In January 1936 Billy took his son Geoffrey - who had just left Harrow school - on a six-month world tour, looking for opportunities to expand the Rootes Group's international motoring empire which by now stretched from America to Australia and the Far East. It was during this trip that Billy received a cable from the government inviting him to become chairman of the committee tasked with setting up shadow factories to manufacture aircraft for the Royal Air Force in preparation for the war. It was Billy Rootes's contribution to the war effort that led to his knighthood. In November 1940, following the Coventry blitz, Winston Churchill asked him to get Coventry's industry back into production without delay. Billy rose to the occasion. On the morning after the blitz, he stood on an upturned box outside his bombed factories, encouraging his workforce to clear up the mess and promising there would continue to be work for all. Billy was knighted in 1942 for his achievements and the outstanding contribution made to the war effort by the Rootes Group in producing record numbers of aircraft, vehicles and supplies for the British forces. His brother Reggie was also knighted in 1945.


Billy provided cars to the most famous people in the land: he made his chauffeur and car available to the Duke of Windsor upon his abdication; provided the Humber staff car - affectionately known as Old Faithful - which Field Marshall Montgomery used throughout the war, and made sure that Sir Winston Churchill always had a succession of much loved Humbers when there was a post-war shortage of motor cars. In 1946 Billy bought Glenalmond Estate in Scotland, a magnificent 16,000 acre sporting estate with grouse moors, stalking, pheasant shooting, duck flighting lochs and game fishing. At its heart stood a large and extremely comfortable house which he bought complete with contents, including silver and linen. Billy and his wife had it beautifully re-decorated by John Fowler and for thirty-five years it was the setting for many happy house-parties and excellent sporting holidays enjoyed by family and friends. The guest list was illustrious, with Harold Macmillan among the distinguished guns listed in the Game Book. Billy was honoured with an hereditary peerage in 1959 in recognition of his role in promoting Britain’s interests abroad as Chairman of the Dollar Exports Council. He took the title of Baron Rootes of Ramsbury, having bought Ramsbury Manor from Lord Wilton a year earlier. Pevsner described Ramsbury Manor as “a perfect example of the moderate-sized brick mansion of about 1680.” By modern standards it was extremely large and was considered to be one of the most beautiful houses in England with interiors embellished with Grinling Gibbons carvings and fine plasterwork. The house was full of beautiful paintings and antiques, many of which were included in the purchase of the house. Billy died in 1964 and Geoffrey succeeded to the title. Geoffrey had returned from 6 ½ years active military service in March 1946 and upon his return he had fallen in love with a beautiful young war widow, Marian Slater, whose husband Wing Commander Garth Slater had been killed in action. Marian's childhood and teens were spent at Burghclere Grange, near Newbury, where she made an impression on all who knew her, including the author Richard Adams of Watership Down fame, who penned the following in his autobiography (The day gone by, 1990): “Marian Hayter (her maiden name) was, by common agreement, the most beautiful girl for miles around. She did teach the torches to burn bright. Since then I have had the luck to meet some very beautiful women (including Virginia McKenna, Julie Christie, and Raquel Welch) but I have never seen anyone -anyone at all- more beautiful than Marian Hayter. She fairly knocked you flat (even at the age of eight or nine); a perfect English blonde, golden-haired, blue-eyed, smiling, graceful in movement, softly rosy, with a kind of unselfconscious vivacity and poise which made you want to go on looking at her for ever. She later married the chairman of the Rootes group. Good luck to him!”

Geoffrey, the second Lord Rootes. Geoffrey and Marian married in August 1946 and he joined the family motor business, becoming Managing Director of Rootes Group. When Billy died Ramsbury Manor was sold, in part to settle the massive burden of death duties levied at that time, and Glenalmond Estate was shared between Geoffrey and his brother Brian. Ramsbury was described as “the most expensive house in Britain” in the 1966 Guinness Book of Records, achieving a record price of £650,000. How times have changed! The North Standen Estate in Berkshire now became the main home of Geoffrey and Marian and many of the works of art from Ramsbury Manor were divided between their Berkshire, Scottish and London homes. Glenalmond House was sold in 1981 with the consequent migration of many items to North Standen House, which now boasted a most remarkable array of fine and decorative art. Geoffrey and Marian were keen collectors in their own right, adding paintings such as Sir Matthew Smith's Flowers in a Jug to their collection. After Geoffrey’s death in 1992, Marian sold the North Standen Estate and moved to a house nearby, retaining some of her favourite pieces until her death in March of this year. The works of art in this catalogue are the culmination of many years of collecting and reflect the memories of Marian's long and happy marriage to Geoffrey and the lovely homes they created together.

Provenance: A Dorset Manor House.

Probably originally the property of the Seymer family.

This enigmatic tankard appears to relate to so-called Veneto-Saracenic metalwork, which has been the subject of considerable academic debate in recent years. The stylistic vocabulary may indicate that it was made in Venice, but a Levantine origin cannot be discounted. It seems likely that the tinned ground on the exterior was originally filled with a black compound, traces of which remain in some places.

See Country Life, 21st December 1961, where illustrated in the Library at Ramsbury Manor, Wiltshire, and also recorded in the 1965 Inventory.

In view of the Ramsbury Manor provenance, it is possible that this chair originally formed part of the furnishings of Foremark Hall, Derbyshire, the home of Sir Robert Burdett, Bt. Sadly, Sir Robert's improvements at Foremark Hall are not impressively documented. Substantial payments to "Mr Chippendale" are recorded between February 1766 and April 1774. The stylistic vocabulary and execution of this chair is consistent with the workshop of Thomas Chippendale and it may be compared to a chair from The Hochschild Collection sold at Sotheby's on 1st December 1978, Lot 66. It may also be compared to a set of four bergere chairs supplied by Chippendale for the Dining Room at Paxton in 1776, illustrated by Christopher Gilbert in "The Life & Works of Thomas Chippendale" and published 1978.

Provenance: Ramsbury Manor, Wiltshire, and recorded in the 1965 Inventory in Lady Roote's Bedroom.

Bearing in mind the Ramsbury Manor provenance, it is possible that this chest originally formed part of the furnishings of Foremark Hall, Derbyshire, the home of Sir Robert Burdett, Bt. Sadly, Sir Robert's improvements at Foremark Hall are not impressively documented. Substantial payments to "Mr Chippendale" are recorded between February 1766 and April 1774. Chippendale supplied comparable serpentine chests to Paxton in 1774. The timber and execution of the present lot are consistent with Chippendale's oeuvre.

See Country Life, 21st December 1961, where illustrated in the Library at Ramsbury Manor, Wiltshire.

This robust form of centre table was introduced around 1800 by the connoisseur, Thomas Hope (died 1831). He was inspired by the work of his friend, Charles Percier . Hope may also have been influenced and assisted by his architect, Charles Heathcote Tatham (died 1842) in the invention of this form of "round monopodium" table which was introduced at his Adam-built Duchess Street mansion. Hope published the design in "Household Furniture and Interior Decoration Excluded from Designs by Thomas Hope" in 1807 where it is illustrated as plate 39.

930 R A MID 18TH CENTURY ROCOCO MIRROR FRAME, in carved wood painted in grey and gilt, the rocaille border set with four children at the lower corners, holding musical instruments and a wine jug and cup, the upper corners with a Chinese figure to the left and a female musician to the right, a dog in the centre, surmounted by a Chinese figure within a fenced pagoda, 54 ½ " high x 36” wide. See illustration

The extravagant rococo form and the scale of the carving is redolent of the work carried out by Luke Lightfoot at Claydon, Buckinghamshire. Claydon House was built between 1757 and 1771 by Earl Verney. The Chinese Room on the first floor represents a chinoiserie fantasy smothered with fruit, foliage, icicles, figures in niches and bells. It is, without doubt, one of the most extraordinary rooms in the British Isles. 148

The present mirror represents an eccentric expression of the chinoiserie style, which reached its apotheoses in the 1760's.

The overall form and design can also be compared to the published designs of Thomas Johnson - "150 New Designs", published 1758 and those published by Matthias Lock in conjunction with Copeland.

The painted scheme may well reflect the original, but it was almost certainly conceived and executed by the renowned designer, John Fowler.

987 AN IMPORTANT ROMAN MARBLE SARCOPHAGUS, the front panel centered by a portico with a triangular pediment carved with ribbons emanating from a wreath, with a partially open double door below carved with lions' masks and trophies, with bold leafy swags suspended from ribbon tied bows and pilasters at either end, the sides carved and incised with concentric circles and pierced at one end for drainage, the back simply hewn, probably Rome, 2nd century AD, 85" wide x 29" deep x 27" high.

Provenance: The collection of Sir John Vharles Robinson CB, FSA, Surveyor of Pictures to HM Queen Victoria and founder and First Superintendent of the Art Collection in South Kensington Museum (Victoria and Albert Museum).

Sold by Hy. Duke & Son of Dorchester as part of the Newton Manor Collection, Swanage, Dorset on September 1st-4th 1913, Lot 503 (illustrated in the catalogue) and acquired at that sale by the family of the vendor.

Various dates have been proposed for this magnificent sarcophagus. In a communication from the British Museum in 1956 a second century date was proposed, but more recently an early third century date has been suggested. The quality of the marble and the sculpted decoration indicate an Italian origin and the undecorated back suggests that the sarcophagus may have come from an independent mausoleum, where the tomb was placed against a wall.

Sir John Charles Robinson was born in Nottingham in December 1824. He was one of the young men that took up with great zeal the movement inaugurated by Prince Albert after the Great Exhibition, for establishing a general system of art education in England. When the South Kensington Museum was founded in 1852 he was appointed the first Superintendent of the Art Collections, a post which he held for 17 years. His obituary records that he spent many seasons travelling for the museum in Italy and Spain. With significant funds at his disposal he was able to acquire a vast number of works in marble, bronze and other materials, which quickly gave South Kensington a unique position among the museums of Europe. It seems likely that this sarcophagus was acquired on one of these tours for his private collection.

Duke’s AUCTIONEERS SINCE 1823

Glossary of Cataloguing Terms The auctioneers are always pleased to discuss individual lots with prospective purchasers prior to the auction and will provide condition reports on request. If you require clarification of any terms employed in the catalogue please do not hesitate to seek advice. The auctioneers are also pleased to discuss lots which may have been altered, repaired, or restored. The term basically used in conjunction with a date (ie. basically 18th century) indicates that, in our opinion, the item may have undergone restoration, repair, or alteration. It also indicates that only an element of the piece may date from the period stated in the description. The absence of the term basically does not imply that an item is without restoration, repair, or alteration. The use of inverted comas around a word or phrase (ie. “pearl”) indicates that the piece, or object, may not be what it is purporting to be. (ie. a simulated pearl). If you are in doubt our specialists are available prior to the auction to offer guidance and advice. With Chinese ceramics and works of art, if the catalogue states that the object in question bears a mark, but it does not state “and of the period” it indicates that we believe the lot in question may not date from the period suggested by the mark. Clearly, references to the colour of jade are subjective and again buyers are advised to inspect personally any items on which they intend to bid to ensure the colour meets with their expectation.

Descriptions of property in this catalogue do not always indicate condition, repair or damage. Buyers are earnestly advised to inspect personally any lot they intend to purchase. Weights and measurements are approximate and should be verified by intending purchasers

Paintings, Drawings and Prints

The use of onverted comas around the name of an artist, or date, in connetion with a signature, or inscription (ie. signed “Nicholas Chevalier”) indicates that the signature, or inscription, may have been added by another hand.

Artist’s Resale Right From mid February 2006 living artists are entitled by law to receive a resale royalty each time their work is resold by or to an art market professional. From 1st January 2012 the Right has been extended to include sales of works by artists who have died within the last 70 years (following the existing term of copyright). Royalties will be payable to the families and beneficiaries of these artists. An art work must be resold for more than 1,000 Euros to qualify for the right. The rates payable are calculated as a percentage of the hammer price and are set out in a sliding scale from 4% to 0.25%. The charge is exclusive of VAT. The auctioneers reserve the right to pass all of the cost to the person buying the qualifying art work

Coloured Gem Stones Prospective buyers of coloured gemstones should be aware that some stones might have been treated to enhance their colour or clarity. Sapphires and rubies are commonly heat-treated and emeralds are commonly oiled. In the case of oiling, this may need to be redone after a 168 these methods. period of years.

13 TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that Lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the Lot. 14 DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (1) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements 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 nor our employees or agents nor 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. 15 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. 16 GENERAL We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. (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. (3) Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail or Swiftmail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. (4) 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. (5) 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. (6) English law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions. 16 DEBIT AND CREDIT CARDS Due to problems with fraudulent debit and credit card transactions payments over the telephone cannot be made for invoices totalling more than £200 unless the Buyers are known to Duke’s.
