Provenance: Purchased by the current owner circa 1981 from a Kent antiques dealer who reputedly acquired it from the estate of a local naval family.

117* Jade Carving. A large and impressive jade carving of a horse, probably Chongzhen period, 17th century, carved pale-grey nephrite jade with black mottling and ochre rivering, modelled as a recumbent horse with its forelegs and hind legs elegantly tucked under its body, the tail sweeps to the right side and head, alert with ears pricked, turned back, a semi-circular forelock, neatly incised, gives way to a centrally parted short mane which falls in carved and incised locks over the neck, 172 x 242mm, together with a slightly later carved hardwood base with inlaid silver wirework, circa 1780-1810, slight chip to front right hoof

Much about the posture and detail of the present work is reminiscent of the famous Atterbury Jade Buffalo (see Bonhams, New Bond Street 12 May 2016, lot 158), which is now securely dated to the 17th century. The new confidence of the Qing dynasty is prominent in the present work, and it is tempting to suggest that the alert pose of the horse reflects the fears of the later Ming governments under pressure from the Manchus. The heavily mottled “cloud jadeâ€? from which this horse is carved reflects the scarcity of good quality jade during the period. Already by the 17th century large pieces of high grade jade were no longer to be found in central and north western China, having been heavily mined during the Archaic period. Access to new supplies would not be possible until the Xinjiang region was brought under firm control in 1759. These large scale animal sculptures are often assumed to be commissions for imperial clients, and whilst the rarest, purest material may have been reserved for the Emperor, other large scale pieces in slightly lesser material could have been commissioned by other members of the imperial family or the highest ranking court officials. Literature: See J.C.S.Lin, The Immortal Stone: Chinese jades from the Neolithic period to the twentieth century, Cambridge, 2009 and Jessica Rawson, Chinese Jade from the Neolithic to the Qing, British Museum, 1995 for a more detailed account of jade carvings.

TEXTILES, TOOLS & DESIGNS: THE ARCHIVE OF THE LADIES’ WORK SOCIETY The Ladies’ Work Society was an off-shoot of the Royal School of Needlework begun by Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll in 1875. The Society was one of a number of Work Societies which were formed to provide assistance to impoverished gentlewomen who, though force of circumstance, were left in middle life with little or no income. Such women came from a social class where few occupations were open to those who were single, with the exception of companion or governess, and many unmarried or widowed ladies were left with no means of support. An occupation in needlework provided a solution for many, as it was a genteel way to make a living and required only some augmentation of the average lady’s childhood skills in order to reach a professional standard. The Society was based at 31 Sloane Street in London, and distributed to seamstresses who worked in their own homes. Under the influence of Princess Louise, a skilled artist and sculptress herself, a reputation for high standards of work was gained, and many important commissions were undertaken, such as the gold threadwork on Queen Alexandra’s coronation robes. Shortly before the end of WWII Lady Alison Delabere Carleton and Miss Dorothy A. Thorold became involved with the firm, and they turned it into a limited company. The pair had set up a business in London’s Wigmore Street in the 1920s, making finely sewn and embroidered evening bags for high-class clientele. Lady Alison was a skilled artist, particularly of miniature portraits, as well as of embroidery designs, and is thought to have trained in Italy. She was involved in espionage during WWI, is believed to have flown aircraft during the war, and was awarded the Croix de Guerre. After the war The Ladies’ Work Society occupied huge premises in the Brompton Road neighbouring a number of high-class antique dealers who sold or hired props to the film industry. The Society began to follow suit, building up a collection of Victorian textiles for hire to set dressers. The rent of £1500 a month for the premises was covered solely by this income. In 1969, the business moved to Moreton-in-Marsh in Gloucestershire, where it continued producing top quality hand-made furnishings to customers all over the world until closing in the 1980s, after more than a century of output.

Berlin woolwork, or embroidery on canvas by means of copying a coloured chart, became very popular in the 19th century. Prior to the introduction of Berlin patterns it was very rare to find needlework designs with any indication of colour choices or threads. Berlin patterns were always coloured by hand at first, until the emergence of industrial printing techniques. (a folder) £200-300

172* Embroidery. Embroidered mirror frame, English, circa 1640, embroidery and stumpwork on silk satin, elaborately worked with Biblical scenes and symbolic motifs on a theme of deception, incorporating figures, animals, insects, a castle, flowers and trees, an hour glass, an angel, etc., worn and fragile in places (some strengthening on verso), 60 x 52cm (23.5 x 20.5ins) A remarkable rare survival depicting the following Biblical characters: David and Bathsheba, Jezebel, Samson and Delilah, Tamar, Aaron, Eve, Laban, and Isaac. Although mirrors existed before, it wasn’t until the sixteenth century that the Venetians perfected the production of clear plate glass. Mirrors made during this early period were extremely costly and highly prized, and so the frames that surrounded them were frequently elaborate and beautifully made. In this case the frame is more than just a thing of beauty; it also conveys a message through its stories and symbols. The theme of deception was seen as a very appropriate one for a mirror frame; the allegorical complexities of the mirror have been used time and again in art and literature, most obviously the mirror being the means of distorting an image, or conversely, being a means of robbing the viewer of selfdeception. A number of symbolic images convey further instructive messages, for example a snail denotes sloth and sin, the hare lust and fecundity, the squirrel avarice and greed, an hour glass the passage of time, an iris the power of light and hope, a stag piety and religious aspiration, and so on.

These are some of the first photographs taken from lunar orbit. The Lunar Orbiter programme was a series of five unmanned lunar orbiter missions launched by the United States from 1966 through 1967, intended to help select Apollo landing sites by mapping the Moon’s surface. The spacecraft carried 70mm photographic film which was developed automatically in lunar orbit aboard the spacecraft. The developed film was then scanned with a light beam and this modulated the signal which was sent back to Earth. Each image was then archived on analog data tape and printed out as photographs for use by the Lunar Orbiter analysis team. The crater Copernicus, named after the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, is 93 kilometres in diameter, and one of the most prominent features on the Moon’s near side. (8) £500-800

254* Rejlander (Oscar Gustave, 1813-1875). Self-portrait, circa 1850s, watercolour and chalk, three-quarter length, the sitter with a divider held in his right hand over a piece of paper, signed in a blank strip lower left in blue chalk, ‘O.G. Rejlander’, 395 x 318mm (15.5 x 12.5ins), laid on card with a full-length albumen print portrait by Rejlander of The Countess of Tankerville pasted to mount verso, [1866], 19.5 x 15cm (7.75 x 6ins), mount browned to left margin of verso with some spotting and fading to left and lower margins of photograph Rejlander started out as a painter and portrait miniaturist in Wolverhamton, probably around 1846. Around 1850 he learned the wet-collodion and waxed-paper processes and then changed his business to that of photographer. The portrait here shows him bearded and with a full head of hair (unlike the more kempt and clean-shaven watercolour self-portrait from the Roy Davids collection sold by Bonhams, London, 3 October 2005, lot 208), while most of the photographic self-portraits from the 1860s show him with wilder hair and beard and no hair on top. The Harry Ransom Center’s photography collection at the University of Texas at Austin has a portrait of the Countess of Tankerville clearly taken by Rejlander at the same sitting. In an online article about the portrait by Marlene Renz on the University’s website it is claimed that this is ‘the only known print of a portrait of Olivia Bennet, The Countess of Tankerville, by distinguished 19th-century photographer Oscar Gustave Rejlander’. This second portrait gives further weight to the attribution. (1) £1500-2000

The ‘Electronic’ model was a cutting edge design and their last model before manufacture ceased in 1975. Introduced in 1968 and based on the chassis and layout of the ‘Super’, it featured the world’s first electronically governed shutter. Only 3100 were produced. Generally, cutting-edge designs have flaws in their initial designs and the Electronic was no exception. The flaw was that the power for the light meter and shutter were both drawn from the same battery. This was rectified in a running design change with no fanfare by introducing a second battery compartment. This improved version with two power sources ran from serial number R55001 through R57000. The serial number of this camera is R55502, which identifies it as an improved version from the original model. (6) £250-350

The present work is a study for the right hand figure in ‘The Captives’, held by The De Morgan Foundation, which shows five classically draped female figures in attitudes of fear amongst writhing dragons. The painting seems to give a message of worldly danger, both physical and spiritual, particularly for women, and the need to resist. This study is a typical example of Evelyn’s careful preparatory work, showing an accurate delineation of limbs and attitude, and exquisitely drawn features. (1) £2000-3000

Lot 287 287* De Morgan (Evelyn, 1855-1919). Preparatory study of a male head, for Saint Christina Giving her Father’s Jewels to the Poor, Florence, 1904, coloured chalks and pastel on buff paper, head portrait in profile turned to the right, of an elderly blind man with a grey beard and long hair, his face turned heavenward, visible sheet size 30 x 20cm (11.75 x 8ins), image size 18.5 x 17.5cm (7.25 x 7ins), mounted, framed and glazed Provenance: English private collection formed circa 1950-1970, thence by descent. The present work is a study for the supplicating male figure in the boat on the left of Evelyn de Morgan’s impressive oil painting ‘Saint Christina Giving her Father’s Jewels to the Poor’. The work was painted in Italy, and brought over from Florence shortly before the outbreak of war in 1914. In 1919 it was purchased by her sister and biographer, Mrs. Stirling, from a sale of Evelyn’s paintings held in aid of St. Dunstan’s charity for blinded war veterans. Tragically it was destroyed in October 1991 when a fire raged through Bourlet’s art storage unit in New York where much of the De Morgan Foundation’s art collection was being held. The St. Christina oil is the largest work which Evelyn produced, measuring 77.75 x 120ins, and consequently a large number of studies for it exist. The painting depicts the saint standing on the steps of her pagan father’s Venetian palace distributing to a number of supplicants jewels taken from the idols broken up by attending angels. The format of the work follows in the tradition of large scale Biblical and historical paintings, and its subject - spiritual enlightenment through casting off wealth - was one that particularly interested the artist. The martyred St. Christina not only embodied the virtues of poverty and charity, but also showed herself to be a strong woman in the face of opposition, an attribute which must have appealed to the feminist Evelyn. The detailed life studies produced by Evelyn De Morgan for such works typically show a desire for accuracy, with exquisite detail in drapery and figure studies, and beauty of character in her studies of heads; the artist rarely deviated from her initial concepts in the finished composition.

Buxton Forman, by whom given to William Bell Scott in 1870; Miss Alice Boyd, Penkill Castle, passed 1897 to her niece Miss Eleanor Margaret Courtney-Boyd, passed 1946 to her niece Miss Evelyn May Courtney-Boyd; M.D.E. Clayton-Stamm, 1967; sold Christie’s 15 June 1971, where purchased by the family of the present owner. Butlin, The Paintings and Drawings of William Blake (1981), 692, 73-74. From the small Blake-Varley Sketchbook of 1819, published in facsimile by Martin Butlin in 1971. Exhibited at the Tate Gallery, London, from 1969 to 1971. During 1819 and for some time thereafter, William Blake made a large number of pencil drawings known as Visionary Heads in the company of his friend the landscape painter and astrologer John Varley. Varley was Blake’s close companion from their first meeting in 1819 until Blake’s death in 1827. Of the three sketchbooks used by Blake, the first is known as the smaller Blake-Varley Sketchbook (Butlin 692), the second as the larger Blake-Varley Sketchbook (discovered in 1989), and the folio Blake-Varley Sketchbook (undiscovered, although individual drawings from this album have been identified). Varley had been introduced to Blake by his pupil John Linnell, and the meetings during which the drawings were made took place (according to Alexander Gilchrist, Blake’s first biographer), ‘During the favourable and fitting hours of night; from nine or ten in the evening to one or two, perhaps three and four o’clock in the morning’. Both Blake and Varley were interested in physiognamy, astrology, and the related science of phrenology. Gilchrist describes these visionary séances in some detail: ‘Varley it was who encouraged Blake to take authentic sketches of certain among his most frequent spiritual visitants. The Visionary faculty was so much under control, that, at the wish of a friend, he could summon before his abstracted gaze any of the familiar forms and faces he was asked for. This was during the favourable and befitting hours of night; from nine or ten in the evening, until one or two, or perhaps three and four o’clock, in the morning; Varley sitting by, ‘sometimes slumbering, and sometimes waking’.’ Varley would say, ‘Draw me Moses,’ or David; or would call for a likeness of Julius Caesar, or Cassibellaunus, or Edward the Third, or some other great historical personage. Blake would answer, ‘There he is!’ and paper and pencil being at hand, he would begin drawing with the utmost alacrity and composure, looking up from time to time as though he had a real sitter before him...’(Gilchrist, Life of William Blake, Pictor Ignotus, 1863, page 251).

A remarkable collaboration between the embroiderer Eunice Bagster and the artist, with the face drawn by Kauffman with miniature precision, and returned to its owner as a gift. An extensive manuscript annotation by Eunice Bagster to verso provides details of the origin of this work: “This needlework imitation of an engraving representing ‘Religion’ drawn by Angelica Kauffman and engraved by Bartolozzi was executed by me when Eunice Birch in the year 1792. When the work was completed it was sent to the artist Angelica Kauffman to paint the face - who complimented the young performer by refusing any other remuneration for so doing than the pleasure she had received in the beauty of the needle-work itself. Eunice Birch married Samuel Bagster on December 19 1797 and now in January 1843 it is given to my beloved daughter Eunice Bagster by her own affectionate mother. Eunice Bagster. It is my particular wish that the needlework and the original engraving from which it was copied should not be separated but that whoever possesses the needle-work should also the engraving”.

An astonishing illustrated manuscript account of a complex ceremony, the present work appears to be in tradition of the manuscript histories of the Yao people, and the blending of Buddhist, Daoist and traditional motifs appears to correspond with the history of the Yao and their migrations across Asia. Whilst the British Library and other institutions in the West, hold collections of Yao manuscripts, we have been unable to locate any comparable document either in terms of length or density of illustration. The date referred to in the title of the text is described as “very auspicious” and it is possible that this document was prepared slightly before this day to serve as an instruction manual for the performing of rituals like the eye-opening ceremony and the exorcism of evil spirits.

CONDITIONS OF SALE AND BUSINESS 1. The Seller warrants to the Auctioneer and the buyer that he is the true owner or is properly authorised to sell the property by the true owner and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. 2. (a) The highest bidder to be the buyer. If during the auction the Auctioneer considers that a dispute has arisen he has absolute authority to settle it or re-offer the lot. The Auctioneer may at his sole discretion determine the advance of bidding or refuse a bid, divide any lot, combine any two or more lots or withdraw any lot without prior notice. (b) Where goods are bought at auction by a buyer who has entered into an agreement with another or others that the other or others (or some of them) shall abstain from bidding for the goods and the buyer or other party or one of the other parties is a dealer (as defined in the Auction Biddings Agreement Act 1927) the buyer warrants that the goods are bought bona fide on joint account. 3. The buyer shall pay the price at which a lot is knocked down by the Auctioneer to the buyer (“the hammer price”) together with a premium of 19.5% of the hammer price. Where the lot is marked by an asterisk the premium will be subject to VAT at 23.40% which under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme will form part of the buyer’s premium on our invoice and will not be separately identified (the premium added to the hammer price will hereafter collectively be referred to as “the total sum due”). By making any bid the buyer acknowledges that his attention has been drawn to the fact that on the sale of any lot the Auctioneer will receive from the seller commission at its usual rates in addition to the said premium of 19.5% and assents to the Auctioneer receiving the said commission. 4. (a) The buyer shall forthwith upon the purchase give in his name and permanent address and pay to the Auctioneer immediately after the conclusion of the auction the total sum due. (b) The buyer may be required to pay down during the course of the sale the whole or any part of the total sum due, and if he fails to do so after such request the lot or lots may at the Auctioneer's absolute discretion be put up again and resold immediately. (c) The buyer shall at his own expense take away any lot or lots purchased no later than five working days after the auction day. (d) The Auctioneer may at his own discretion agree credit terms with a buyer and extend the time limits for collection in special cases but otherwise payment shall be deemed to have been made only after the Auctioneer has received cash or a sterling banker’s draft or the buyer's cheque has been cleared. 5. (a) If the buyer fails to pay for or take away any lot or lots pursuant to clause 4 or breaches any other condition of that clause the Auctioneer as agent for the seller shall be entitled after consultation with the seller to exercise one or other of the following rights: (i) Rescind the sale of that or any other lots sold to the buyer who defaults and re-sell the lot or lots whereupon the defaulting buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer any shortfall between the proceeds of that sale after deduction of costs of re-sale and the total sum due. Any surplus shall belong to the seller. (ii) Proceed for damages for breach of contract. (b) Without prejudice to the Auctioneer's rights hereunder if any lots or lots are not collected within five days or such longer period as the Auctioneer may have agreed otherwise, the Auctioneer may charge the buyer a storage charge of £1.00 + VAT at the current rate per lot per day. (c) Ownership of the lot purchased shall not pass to the buyer until he has paid to the Auctioneer the total sum due. 6. (a) The seller shall be entitled to place a reserve on any lot and the Auctioneer shall have the right to bid on behalf of the seller for any lot on which a reserve has been placed. A seller may not bid on any lot on which a reserve has been placed. (b) Where any lot fails to sell, the Auctioneer shall notify the seller accordingly. The seller shall make arrangements either to re-offer the lot for sale or to collect the lot and may be asked to pay a commission not exceeding 50% of the selling commission and any special expenses incurred in cataloguing the lot. (c) If such arrangements are not made within seven days of the notification the Auctioneer is empowered to sell the lot by auction or by private treaty at not less than the reserve price and to receive from the seller the normal selling commission and special expenses.

7. Any representation or statement by the Auctioneer in any catalogue, brochure or advertisement of forthcoming sales as to authorship, attribution, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price is a statement of opinion only. Every person interested should exercise and rely on his own judgement as to such matters and neither the Auctioneer nor his servants or agents are responsible for the correctness of such opinions. No warranty whatsoever is given by the Auctioneer or the seller in respect of any lot and any express or implied warranties are hereby excluded. 8. (a) Notwithstanding any other terms of these conditions, if within fourteen days of the sale the Auctioneer has received from the buyer of any lot notice in writing that in his view the lot is a deliberate forgery and within fourteen days after such notification the buyer returns the same to the Auctioneer in the same condition as at the time of the sale and satisfies the Auctioneer that considered in the light of the entry in the catalogue the lot is a deliberate forgery then the sale of the lot will be rescinded and the purchase price of the same refunded. "A deliberate forgery" means a lot made with intention to deceive. (b) A buyer's claim under this condition shall be limited to any amount paid to the Auctioneer for the lot and for the purpose of this condition the buyer shall be the person to whom the original invoice was made out by the Auctioneer. 9. Lots may be removed during the sale after full settlement in accordance with 4(d) hereof. 10. All goods delivered to the Auctioneer's premises will be deemed to be delivered for sale by auction unless otherwise stated in writing and will be catalogued and sold at the Auctioneer's discretion and accepted by the Auctioneer subject to all these conditions. In the case of miscellaneous books, the Auctioneer reserves the right to extract and dispose of books that, in the opinion of the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion, have no saleable value and, therefore, might detract from the saleability of the rest of the lot and the Auctioneer shall incur no liability to the seller, in respect of the books disposed of. By delivering the goods to theAuctioneer for inclusion in his auction sales each seller acknowledges that he/she accepts and agrees to all the conditions. 11. (a) Unless otherwise instructed in writing all goods on the Auctioneer's premises and in their custody will be held insured against the risks of fire, burglary, water damage and accidental breakage or damage. The value of the goods so covered will be the hammer price, or in the case of unsold lots the lower estimate, or in the case of loss or damage prior to the sale that which the specialised staff of the Auctioneer shall in their absolute discretion estimate to be the auction value of such goods. (b) The Auctioneer shall not be responsible for damage to or the loss, theft, or destruction of any goods not so insured because of the owner’s written instructions. 12. The Auctioneer shall remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller thirty days after the day of the auction provided that the Auctioneer has received the total sum due from the buyer. In all other cases the Auctioneer will remit the proceeds of the sale to the seller within seven days of the receipt by the Auctioneer of the total sum due. The Auctioneer will not be deemed to have received the total sum due until after any cheque delivered by the buyer has been cleared. In the event of the Auctioneer exercising his right to rescind the sale his obligation to the seller hereunder lapses. 13. In the case of the seller withdrawing instructions to the Auctioneer to sell any lot or lots, the Auctioneer may charge a fee of 12.5% of the Auctioneer's middle estimate of the auction price of the lot withdrawn together with Value Added Tax thereon and any expenses incurred in respect of the lot or lots. 14. The Auctioneer’s current standard notices and information (i.e. Collation and Amendments) will apply to any contract with the Auctioneer as if incorporated herein. 15. These conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law.
