SPECIALIST INSIGHT It is increasingly unusual to encounter a listed country house with its contents, more or less untouched for one hundred years and yet this is the case with the vast majority of the pieces presented in this auction consigned for sale by the executors of this estate. This is verified by poring over an old insurance valuation, carried out by Pawsey and Payne, Saint James’s, London, in August 1965, with the majority of the furnishings having remained in the same rooms since that date. The residual works were sold in our antique and interiors sale on the 15th of July, with the highlight being a Chamberlain’s of Worcester porcelain tray, painted with Hawkstone Hall, that made a hammer price of £1,700, more than the buyer had recently paid for its pair through the specialist trade. Surprisingly, a Victorian teak campaign chest, missing half a drawer front and with two chunks missing from each side made a staggering £800. More than would have been expected for an equivalent example in good condition. By family repute the beneficiaries of this estate have given the provenance of many items to a local country house sale in the 1920s or 1930s and, in fact, in the insurance valuation mentioned above there are numerous footnotes to a ‘1929 Collection’. Sadly, it is not known to precisely which family this refers, let alone to which estate. The most interesting and salient items from this house sale are the two 18th century perspectives of Shrewsbury (lots 53 and 54) but there is an interesting array of pieces from disparate categories, from a collection of 18th and 19th

6

century oak furniture, where there is an early-mid 18th century north Wales dresser, with unusual, carved scrolls (lot 28), to several 19th century Fijian throwing clubs (lots 1 and 2). Or, from a pair of 19th century, elephant-handled glass vases, attributed to Harrach (lot 13) to a collectable 1710 edition medical book by John Greenfield, A Treatise of Stone and Gravel (lot 20). In terms of price too, there is a broad range to cater for different pockets. At one end of the scale a 4.1 carat diamond ring at £6,000-9,000 to an affordable £50£80 for a 19th century brass doorstop. Unsurprisingly there are vestiges of bygone eras, including a Victorian maple cigar box (lot 43) and a gold cigarette case (lot 78), from the more recent past to a 19th century rushnip (lot 4), a set of Victorian library steps (lot 47) and a sgabella form pair of hall chairs (lot 45) from the more distant past. One unifying theme is that all would still grace any home. Another is that given there is something of interest for most people all will find their way into a welcoming and appreciative arena.

ATTRIBUTED TO JOHN BOWEN (DIED 1773), NORTH EAST PROSPECT OF SHREWSBURY

oil on canvas, 68.5 x 182cm, frame 76 x 191cm

Note: John Bowen was the son of an artist and well regarded for his architectural accuracy, exemplified by this painting and a number of his other works in Shrewsbury Museum's collection. It is worth noting that Saint Julian's (with a tower), Saint Mary's and Saint Alkmund's Church (from left to right in the centre) are all shown as one would expect of an 18th century depiction, but more interestingly, Old Saint Chads Church is shown to the left of this group, before its tower collapsed on 8th July 1788. Given the new English Bridge, that was built from 1769-1774, is not evident and nor are the changes to the Abbey (on the far left), which lost its southern aspect following Thomas Telford's London Road construction, this depiction must pre-date 1769, but as yet, a more precise date has yet to be ascertained for this aspect. Label verso: 'Loaned by Rev J.T.R..., Baschurch vicarage'. Rev J.T. Ryder was vicar of Baschurch from 1883-1912 We are grateful to Shrewsbury Museum for their assistance and help in cataloguing this lot £10,000 - £15,000

54

ENGLISH SCHOOL, 18TH CENTURY, SOUTHERN PROSPECT OF SHREWSBURY

oil on canvas, 49 x 74cm

Note: This Southern prospect of Shrewsbury is a Capriccio and a good contrast to the larger counterpart, for the unknown artist has moved the old English Bridge and Gatehouse around the river, Saint Julian's Church is incorrectly positioned and the time that this work depicts, where the defensive walls are intact, there should also have been many wall towers present. Given the walls were gradually demolished throughout the 18th century and all the architectural inconsistencies, it is difficult to date this depiction, but it was probably painted in the 18th century as an interpretation of an earlier imaginary state, a fanciful image of how Shrewsbury might have looked. Interestingly, as romantic as this aspect is, it does include the dingle, a pond before the trees, which curiously and uncharacteristically John Bowen used to omit. We are grateful to Shrewsbury Museum for their assistance and help in cataloguing this lot £5,000 - £8,000

A RARE CAUGHLEY DESSERT PLATE

circa 1788-93 painted in a light, bright underglaze blue with 'Bright Landscapes 3', combined with an elaborate Gold Star and Spangles gilded border, central panel painted with a monk standing before a ruined building, impressed 'Salopian', 23cm wide Provenance: Ex. Gittins and CB Collection. Featured in Caughley Bicentenary Exhibition, no, 525 and previously sold by Klaber & Klaber Notes: By the release of Godden's book on Caughley and Worcester porcelains, the author knew of only six pieces in this pattern. It was Gaye Blake Roberts who first shed significant light on these designs in 1974 within an English Ceramic Circle Transaction paper in which it was reported that the source of several scenes from a Bright Landscapes dessert service were taken from Paul Sandby's Virtouosis' Museum published in 1778. The Gold Star Border and Spangles dessert service was first illustrated in 1969 by Godden. Research has shown that there are at least two dessert services with this gilt design £400 - £600

Provenance: Caughley Polychrome Exhibition 2005 no. 23 £300 - £400

Notes: Items from the 'Prince of Wales' service usually appear decorated in polychrome rather than underglaze blue. It is therefore possible that this plate is a trial piece, although a bowl and cover with a similar type of decoration is held by the Shrewsbury Museum Services £300 - £500

Research suggests this piece was commissioned by Major-General Sir John Braithwaite, who was Commander in Chief of the coast of Coromandel in India.

Note: The use of spittoons proliferated in public areas such as banks, railways stations, taverns, brothels and other places where large numbers of people (particularly men) gathered. Use of spittoons was considered an advance of public manners and health, intended to replace the previously common practice of spitting on floors, streets, and sidewalks. Many places passed laws against spitting in public other than into a spittoon, however from the 1800s onwards this was mainly discouraged in England due to the idea that it would spread disease such as tuberculosis £200 - £300

A WORCESTER TEACUP AND SAUCER

circa 1785-90 of fluted form, painted with a griffin crest and gilded floral swags with a dentil border, unmarked, saucer 14cm diameter (saucer with stapled repair) Notes: Although the teacup was previously exhibited as no. 641 in the 1999 Caughley Bicentenary Exhibition and subsequently as no. 92 in the 2002 Caughley in Colour Exhibition, recent scholarship has confirmed previous doubts about this attribution. Since that time, both a matching saucer (present with this lot) and a coffee cup appeared on the open market. Comparisons of the relevant dimensions, number of reeds and handles with known examples from both factories demonstrate that these pieces are not consistent with Caughley moulds from this period, and instead point to a Worcester origin Provenance: Ex CB Collection £70 - £100

He has often been called the last of the post-Impressionists and was well known in the Parisian art scene. He used watercolour and oil in his early work but pastel became his preferred medium and which brought him the most international success. He was a lifelong friend and painting companion of Winston Churchill and he had work commissioned by the Royal Family on a number of occasions

Measurements 43 x 55 cm (i), frame 62 x 72 cm Label verso: Previously sold at Gorringes, 2013 Note: Jacob Epstein was a pioneer of modern sculpture and one of the most influential and controversial artists of the modern era, with his typically avant-garde and rough-hewn realist sculpture and artworks inspiring the next generation of sculptors such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Epstein's work was considered extremely controversial for its time, with his explicit and erotically charged works moving away from the classical conventions of sculptural aesthetics which dominated sculptural and artistic norms of the day. He actively challenged the ideas of what is appropriate public art, with many of his works being censored and openly criticised as inappropriate and shocking for Edwardian society £1,000 - £1,500

A PAIR OF COADE URNS

with bud form finials and fluted sides, bases impressed 'Coade Lambeth 1794', 63cm high, with a pair of rams head and swag moulded pedestals, 53cm high, restorations s/d Provenance: Property of a Titled Estate Note: This pair of Coade urns were made by the company whose founder and owner was Eleanor Coade, an highly successful entrepreneur with a flair for commerce. Having run her own drapery business in the 1760s she bought an artificial stone factory in 1770 and turned it into a world-renowned company, producing architectural features and garden ornaments, supplying none other than the Royal Family, for Buckingham Palace, many architects of the time including James Wyatt, John Soane and John Nash (leading lights of the Neoclassical movement) and many wealthy patrons overseas. These urns are in fact finials and similar examples can be seen on her home, Belmont House, in Lyme Regis (see plate opposite), where they can be seen on the parapet walls of the roof, as was the fashion on Palladian style manors and villas of the day. These examples are stamped ‘Coade Lambeth, 1794’ and given the name of her company changed in 1799 (to Coade & Sealy) these urns can be given a pretty accurate date of manufacture £7,000 - £10,000

1970 BENTLEY T SERIES MULLINER PARK WARD 2-DOOR FIXED HEAD COUPE Grey paintwork with red coach-lining Magnolia seat leather, automatic transmission Bentley Motors chassis CBH 8237 Rolls-Royce 6230cc V8 engine 8237 Matching numbers, driven only 85,285 miles by three owners Original registration ‘BLC 750H’ £8,000 - £12,000

Note: The Bentley T was the Bentley version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, a total of 1868 being produced 1966-1970, the majority 4-door saloons and only 114 of them 2-door coupes, of which 1 was bodied by Pininfarina, 15 by James Young and 98, as this car, by in-house coachbuilders Mulliner Park Ward. When launched, the more understated luxury Bentley T saloon’s pre-tax ‘list price’ of £5,375 undercut the equivalent Rolls-Royce by £50, while the price charged for a more sporting Bentley coupe was some 50% greater than that of the standard saloon. The Bentley differed from its Rolls-Royce sibling by having a more rounded grille, while the badging on the wheel covers, boot lid and gauges naturally featured Bentley motifs rather than the Rolls-Royce logo. Although some of the panels on a Bentley coupe were shared with the standard 4-door saloons, their 2-door body-shells featured a distinctive dipping upper wing with parallel crease, and revised, more rounded rear bodywork. One of only 89 Bentley badged MPW coupes in right-hand drive, this statistically rare 1970 T Series 2-door 8237 was registered BLC 750H, the registration that has remained on the car to this day (confirmed in a current V5C registration document), when sold new 8 April 1970 by supplying London West End Bentley dealers Jack Barclay Ltd (their plate in door aperture) to first owner Ruth Matilda Brown of Staplefield, near Haywards Heath. After 21 years in her care, the Bentley was purchased 06 September 1991 by second owner Peter M Afia of Hatton Grange Shifnal, before being auctioned nine years later in a Halls Fine Art sale 30 April 1999 with 83,000 mileage. The original invoice for the sale is the history file along with an impressive run of tax discs from 1971 to 1999. Since acquisition by our Shrewsbury client however, who was therefore only the third owner, the 50 year old Bentley has only been driven a further 2,285 miles in just over 20 years (an expired tax disc from 2011 is still on the screen), having been mainly preserved in the dry sanctuary of a damp-free residential garage. Previously repainted bodywork is clean and the chrome shines today. Patinated seat leather, which may be original, although lightly age-cracked in the front, is still soft, and the dashboard wood and door top capping are all present and correct. While after half a century, the engine bay presentation is fair for the year. Although well stored and cosmetically tidy, the battery has been flat for some time however and the car has not been maintained or serviced recently. It is therefore being sold as seen and as a ‘Non-Runner’. The fullest professional recommissioning of all electrical and hydraulic systems would therefore be advised and the potential renewal of tyres, brake and steering components and an MOT test pass prudent before the car is driven on the public road. This still stylish Bentley, which is categorised by the DVLA as a ‘Historic Vehicle’ and eligible for free road tax, has nonetheless been most realistically estimated.

(c)All statements whether printed in the catalogue or made orally as to any of the matters set out in (b) above are statements of opinion only and are not to be taken as being or implying any warranties or representations of fact by Halls Holdings Limited unless they have been instructed in writing by the seller to so certify.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO JEWELLERY BUYERS Prospective buyers please note that lots marked with ◉ may be subject to VAT on the hammer price. Prospective buyers should note that although every effort is made to note repairs, restoration and damage in the catalogue descriptions, a lack of any such note should not be taken to imply that the lot is in perfect condition. Prospective watch buyers should note that the working order of watches is not guaranteed. All weights stated in the catalogue are approximate only, these figures are for reference only and prospective buyers should satisfy themselves as to the accuracy. Prospective buyers please note that we do not guarantee amber as being naturally formed and all or parts may be reconstituted. The colour of the amber may vary from the catalogue or online illustration. Prospective buyers are reminded that coloured gemstones have historically been treated to enhance their appearance. A variety of methods have been, and are currently used to improve both transparency and colour of various gemstones. All yellow and white metals have not been tested. The International Jewellery Trade generally accept these methods. It is not possible for Halls to obtain gemmological reports on all stones offered for sale and therefore all Halls Holding’s estimates assume that gemstones have been enhanced.

Any substantial losses/wear to include detached boards, detached spines or extensive graffiti will be described as ‘at fault’.
