The Wright Stuff _________________________________

Caughley collector Maurice Wright and Halls Fine Art director Jeremy Lamond reflect on a lifetime of gathering a unique collection of British porcelain.

i first met Maurice and Janet over fifteen years ago when i was relatively new to Shropshire and finding my way around both geographically and historically. Maurice struck me immediately as a standard bearer for the Caughley factory - his enthusiasm for it and tenacious pursuit of its wares would easily have landed him a job with Thomas Turner as head of PR and marketing! Although Caughley had a short existence compared to say, Worcester, its products and output were a testament to the enthusiasm and energy of its founder, Thomas Turner. The very fact that Maurice and Janet have collected so many different variants and patterns since 1970, over 400 pieces, shows just how prolific and imaginative the factory was in the days when novelty and fashion was so crucial, as it is now, in driving business and ensuring survival. Turner’s trips to France gave us Chantilly patterns from the country viewed as the centre of eighteenth century fashion and Caughley’s at first, naïve Chinese landscapes and later chinoiserie patterns also showed the importance of the orient in influencing taste. This collection has it all. it is often remarked that collectors are merely ‘custodians’ for the next generation, guarding our heritage to pass down, keepers of the collective memory. Maurice and Janet have been more than custodians, they have been curators without equal, not only collecting but interpreting their finds and adding to the knowledge of the Caughley factory for others in a way that some would avoid, preferring their collections to be private and unknown. Their generosity with knowledge and Maurice’s presidency of the Caughley Society is a gift to enthusiasts everywhere and their infectious love of the subject is an inspiration to new collectors-after meeting Maurice i bought my first piece of Caughley and haven’t looked back! Halls is privileged to be handling the sale of the Wright Collection, a collection that, in its range of objects and diversity of patterns is a benchmark and guide for potaholics everywhere. i hope that you enjoyed reading the catalogue as much as we have enjoyed compiling it and my thanks to Caroline Dennard, ceramics specialist, for her scholarly cataloguing and footnotes. if you are new to Caughley, you could not have a better introduction than this auction and this catalogue.

The Wright Collection _________________________________

This is a collection that was formed without any idea of investment or financial gain. Consequently more than half of the pieces may have some sort of defect. it is better to have a chipped or cracked example than none at all and probably a better piece will turn up and a replacement can be effected at, one hopes, little expenditure. Local interest was an important factor. Why do we collect? The answers are many and varied. Sometimes it is influence, for example, geoffrey godden followed his father. My own father was an inveterate auction-goer, principally to Paterson’s sale-room off Wellington market on Tuesdays which, conveniently, was a day he did not open our fish and chip shop in Dawley! His interest was Coalport. A picture of my father from the local paper in the 1960s or 1970s with part of his collection.

When we started to collect it was, of course, primarily at Bill Dickenson’s shop in ironbridge, and i owe Bill a tremendous debt for sharing his knowledge and being my chief buyer when i needed to cash in! However, the first important piece we bought was a Coalport plate belonging to a Union dessert service from Brian Bowden, then in Doncaster, where we were, 1965-70.

Returning to the West Midlands in 1970 gave more access to ironbridge. it was then we switched from Coalport to Caughley. We also started visiting London on Saturdays requiring an early start. it was antiques from 7 a.m. and we got to know the sites there, particularly the Portobello Road, Venners, the redoubtable Sheila Davis and Mercury, as well as Simon Spero. i remember visiting Simon’s shop in Canning Town and he reached up to a top shelf for a Chantilly sprig sorbet cup saying “i bought 6 and have been keeping them for collectors”, it is now in the ironbridge gorge Museum (igM). The theory behind our collection resembled stamp collecting, i.e. to get one of each denomination and variety. Then by combining patterns and shapes it was possible to reduce the number of necessary pieces so when some must-have piece came along there were spares to sell. The ideal was a rare pattern on a rare shape. We collected only Caughley and eventually only blue and white. Bargains were always welcome and buying and selling was essential since there was little spare money and a small profit (or even a large one) was always welcome. Sometimes it was the Pearl of great price principle (Matthew Ch 13 v 45). As we went to school in Coalbrookdale, an ironbridge Jug seemed top of the wanted list. So the appearance of one at Hall’s from a local collector necessitated the sale of over 20 good pieces which i would rather have kept, however, they were bought by the igM so at least we can still go and look at them and remember where they were bought and who sold them. in the 1990s, Roger Edmundson was running his seminars and he knew i was compiling a list of Caughley blue and white patterns in two groups, painted and printed and asked me to give two lectures which i did handing out fairly basic printed lists. These were updated in the next ten years or so and the presentation and list was improved by increasingly sophisticated computer programmes. As a result, the lists proved useful as a starting point when it was decided the Caughley Society would sponsor a book of patterns, published 2012. (See www.caughleysociety.org). indeed the formation of the Caughley Society by John gittins, with John and Sally Wyatt, was very important to others as well as myself because it broadened our knowledge of the factory and its contemporaries as well as production methods, with expert lecturers and the accumulated experience of the members. The auction which allows everyone a chance was an inspired idea. Again i have to mention geoffrey godden who watched over us and gave generously both his time and wisdom as the first President. No collection is the work of one person for we owe so much to others. i remember saying to geoffrey godden that i was basically interested in patterns whilst he was more interested in shapes, and with his encyclopedic knowledge of other factories, i understood that. When a new pattern turned up on a saucer for instance he always said, “go and find the teapot”. This would help fix the factory where there was doubt. The internet has changed things but came at the right time, when reduced energy meant i did not want to travel great distances to find one of the diminishing number of antique shops, itself a consequence of the internet. Journeys and holidays no longer have the former diversions via well-known dealers! So like Topsy, the collection grew until it was overgrown, so Janet said! it may not be the best or biggest in private hands nevertheless it is probably the most representative collection to come on the market with some undoubted rarities and question marks and it is now time for others to enjoy it.

The sellers are reported to have said, ‘We don’t know where the salt pot is!’ Literature: ironbridge 1999 no.45 and Caughley Society, Caughley Blue and White Patterns, p.214. ‘Pounce’ is a fine powder, made predominantly from cuttlefish bone that was used to dry ink and make rough surfaces suitable for writing on. After sprinkling the paper, 18th or 19th century ink would generally take around ten seconds to dry before the paper could safely be folded without the risk of blotting. The paper would be gently shaken to avoid excess sticking to the paper, which could then be safely discarded prior to this folding. Despite blotting paper being available since Tudor times, this method of using ‘pounce’ or sand proliferated well into the 19th century. £2,500 - £3,000

Lot 26 A VERY RARE CAUGHLEY INKWELL AND LINER TRANSFERPRINTED IN THE BELL TOY PATTERN, circa 1777-88, unmarked, 7.3cm high (chipped, cracked, repaired) Provenance: Wright Collection no.459, purchased from Norley in 1994. Prior to the widespread use of fountain pens in the 1800s, people would have to carry ink with them if they wanted to write whilst out on the road. A large number of inkwells were also made from various materials which were intended to remain solely in situ on a desk. in this case, as with this example, the use of decoration became more important than practicality. generally, records show that a large number of porcelain inkwells were made in England intended either as souvenirs or for export to the USA. However, due to the fragility of these objects, porcelain examples are rare survivors and are sought after by collectors, particularly as the end of the 19th century saw the mass-market use of fountain pens which transformed the inkwell from a much needed important, functional object to a purely decorative one. £600 - £800

Lot 26

Lot 27 (label) Lot 27 A CAUGHLEY INK POT TRANSFER-PRINTED WITH THE STALKED FRUIT PATTERN, lacking cover, circa 1776-82, C mark, 5.5cm high Provenance: Wright Collection no.198, purchased in 1980 from Lindum. Literature: See ironbridge 1999 no.5 for a pounce pot in the same pattern. otherwise this shape is unrecorded, with an unglazed flat base. This is an unusual print which also occurs on early tea ware and looks like a plum or similar with a stalk. £400 - £600 Lot 27 Lot 28 A RARE CAUGHLEY EYE BATH PAINTED WITH LOCRE SPRINGS, circa 1785-93, with a deep oval bowl and baluster stem moulded in relief with scrollwork, supported by a reeded almost circular foot, painted in underglaze blue, 5.3cm high (hairline and filled chip) Provenance: Wright Collection no. 207, purchased in 1980 from Vera Dunk/Pagoda. Another eyebath of this shape is illustrated alongside two matching wasters from the factory site by geoffrey godden, Caughley and Worcester Porcelains. The Locre Sprigs pattern also occurs on butter boats, e.g collection no.426, but is still an uncommon pattern. These eye baths were used to wash out people’s eyes when they became infected. initially, in the 16th century people who were wealthy had eye baths made of silver and it was not until the 18th century that they were made of earthenware or porcelain and came into general use. The bath was filled with a boric acid to wash out the eye and alleviate conjunctivitis. £600 - £800

See Geoffrey Godden, Caughley & Worcester Porcelains 1775-1800 (1969), pl. 114 where the author speculates that the gilding was probably added by Chamberlain’s of Worcester and p. 61 for the list of shapes. The first record of ice cream in this country is 1671 on the menu of a feast for the Knights of the Garter held in St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle. At this time it was considered such an exclusive dish that it appeared only on the king’s table. The earliest printed recipe appeared in Mrs Eale’s Receipts, a work on confectionary which was published in London, 1718. It was not until the second half of the 18th century that ices became more readily available from confectioners’ shops, and these pails were commonly found on upper class homes’ sideboards to be used for a dessert of ice cream with cut fruit. If ice alone is used to fill the cover and the bucket, the ice cream melts very quickly. Although there is nothing recorded in literature, it is almost certain that a little salt was sprinkled on the ice. Porcelain is the ideal material for ice cream pails as it is impervious to salt which improves the refrigerant effect. Experiments has shown that ice cream will remain in a frozen state for up to four hours in these ice pails if salt is added to both containers. After a time, a small amount of ice eventually forms on the exterior of the pail - usually causing condensation, and possible adhesion to the table cloth. It is therefore likely that these early pails would have been placed on a plate or stand. Later designs of these pails often had feet to prevent them freezing to the table, and these objects were rarely made beyond the year 1830. £70 - £100

Lot 32 A CAUGHLEY SPITTOON OR SAFFER POT TRANSFERPRINTED IN THE COLUMBINE AND RIPE FRUIT PATTERN, circa 1778-85, C mark, 10.5cm high Provenance: Wright Collection no. 159, purchased in 1978. 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 practice was mainly discouraged in England due to the idea that it would spread disease such as tuberculosis. £400 - £600 Lot 33 A VERY RARE CAUGHLEY FLOWER POT TRANSFER-PRINTED WITH THE PINE CONE PATTERN, circa 1780-90, unmarked, 12.2cm diameter Provenance: Wright Collection no.917, purchased in 2012 from Ewbanks Auctioneers.

Lot 36 Lot 36 A CAUGHLEY POTTED MEAT POT TRANSFER-PRINTED IN THE PLEASURE BOAT OR FISHERMAN PATTERN, circa 1780-90, S mark, 11.9cm wide Provenance: Wright Collection no.869, purchased from J. Pinnick. The preservation of food such as meat or cheese by ‘potting’ was an important process. it involved sealing food in butter other fat to eliminate its exposure to air which would cause it to go bad, and this process would mean that this food could be kept for weeks or months at a time dependent on the storage conditions. By the 1600s, pots were beginning to replace the heavy crusts which were initially used as a method in this process of preserving meat. These crusts would be used in place of a container to protect the food from the outside environment and were not necessarily always consumed. in order to complete the potting process the meat would be cut into pieces, baked with fresh butter or some form of other fat and seasoned. After pounding with a mortar and pestle the meat would then be stored into pots such as these when they were then heated, cooled and sealed with a final layer of butter. An exception to this rule would sometimes be small birds which could be found potted whole. 18th century receipts show that potting was used for a large variety of meats such as ox-tongue, eels, hare and rabbit. A cookery book by Hannah glasse (1777 and 1787, therefore contemporary to this meat pot) showed that some cooks often kept meat beyond its prime in a refusal to waste it. in which case the meat would be removed from the pot, boiled and re-buttered in order to re-preserve it. Potted meals were prized by places such as inns, as they provided an easy and reliable source of food for their patrons and ships would maintain a similar store of potted goods in order to facilitate long journeys. Prime cuts of meat were often used and £200 - £300 these meat pots were an important feature of many a dinner table in the 18th century. 16

Lot 39 A CAUGHLEY DRY MUSTARD POT TRANSFER-PRINTED IN THE TRAVELLERS PATTERN, circa 1778-85, S mark, 9cm high (chip to rim) Provenance: Wright Collection no.179, purchased in 1979 from Venners. Literature: Stockspring Paul Sandby Exhibition, 2003 and Newsletter December 2003 No.16 p.14. originally this mustard pot came with an incorrect cover in the Three Flowers pattern. Just prior to this mustard pot being returned after being on show in the Paul Sandby Exhibition the dealer Rod Jellicoe contacted Maurice Wright saying that he had recently obtained a dry mustard pot in the Three Flowers pattern. Upon investigation, Wright found that Jellicoe’s mustard pot also had the incorrect cover. Somewhat remarkably, this incorrect cover was in the Travellers print and a swap was therefore made. After 1720, the processing of mustard seeds in a mill would result in a fine flour which came commercially to be known as ‘Durham mustard’. Mustard pots such as these would contain either dry or prepared mustard and were considered by contemporary £400 - £600 cooks to be a valuable asset in the kitchen.

Lot 42 Lot 42 A CAUGHLEY TART OR PATTY PAN TRANSFER-PRINTED WITH THE FRUIT AND WREATH PATTERN, circa 1780-85, C mark, 10.3cm diameter

Provenance: Wright Collection no.518, purchased from Sadler in 1996. This pan is illustrated in godden pl.185 (left-hand side) where the same imperfection in the pattern can be seen. Food historians suggest that tarts were introduced first in Medieval Times. Unlike pies, these dishes were presented without a top crust which gave the opportunity to create a variety of colourful dishes which could be found either savoury or sweet. 18th century sources demonstrate the large amount of recipes catered towards this popular dish, which could contain anything from meat and vegetables to fruit or cheese. one source addresses the use of these pans directly, saying, ‘if you bake in tin Patties, butter them, and you must put a little crust all over, because of the taking them out. if in china, or glass, no crust but the top one. Lay fine sugar at the bottom, then your plumbs, cherries, or any other sort of fruit, and sugar at top; then put on your lid, and bake them in a slack oven.’ —The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy, Hannah glasse, facsimile 1747 reprint [Prospect Books:Devon] 1995 (p. 75) £200 - £300 17

Lot 56

This dish is a cross between the butter boats with three small feet and the earlier ‘’geranium’’ boats and is similar to Liverpool examples. originally with heavy restoration, the removal of this has revealed the true colour of both the porcelain and the pattern. Literature: Newsletter December 2003 no.16 p.12 and Halliday, Richard, ‘Pickle Dishes and Milseys’ (2011). The term ‘pickle’ did not necessarily mean the same thing in the 18th century as we associate with it today. Rather than a gherkin, the historical term refers not only to an item which has been pickled or preserved but also to sauces and relishes which were intended to accompany a dish. ‘Pickle’, therefore could consist of vegetable or fruit pieces within a sauce, perhaps either in combination or alone. Ranging in sweet to savoury in flavour, the one distinguishing and unchanging factor would be that they were always strong in taste with the intent to either add to, or complement, the food it would £250 - £300 be served alongside.

Lot 74 TWO CAUGHLEY ASPARAGUS SERVERS TRANSFER-PRINTED WITH THE FISHERMAN OR PLEASURE BOAT PATTERNS, circa 1780-90, Sx mark to one with further mark S to the main body of the print, widest points 7cm across

Literature: ironbridge 1999 no. 468 and The Caughley Blue and White Society, ‘Caughley Blue and White Patterns’, p.34, for a comparative illustration of this dish and its Chantilly original. Though currently primarily used as a garnish in today’s society, radishes in the 18th century were often eaten whole, including the leaves which contain a high amount of vitamin C. For centuries, radishes were eaten as a cold remedy or to prevent scurvy. Even earlier than this during the Middle Ages there are over twenty references to the use of ‘superne raedic’ as a medicine or tonic, including the rather dubious claim that it was £200 - £300 ‘effective in warding off a woman’s chatter’.

Provenance: Wright Collection no. 714 with the sideways print was purchased in 2004 from M. Edgell and no.238 with the S mark to the front in 1981 from Charnwood. This rare feature of the S mark on the front of the server was caused by a fold in the tissue when creating the transfer. Articles about pieces marked to the front have appeared in Caughley Newsletters such as May 2014 No.58 and June 2007 No. 30, p.17. Asparagus was first introduced by the Romans and this young shoot from a cultivated plant of the lily family (and a distant cousin of the onion!) came back to our shores in the reign of Henry Viii. Such was its popularity that by the 18th century we grew more asparagus than any other country, according to the £200 - £300 compendium ‘England in Particular’.

Lot 78 A CAUGHLEY EGG DRAINER TRANSFER-PRINTED WITH THE PLEASURE BOAT OR FISHERMAN PATTERN, circa 1780-90, with leaf shaped handle, unmarked, bowl 8.3cm diameter (cracked) Provenance: Wright Collection no.849, purchased from Horton in 2010. Contemporary porcelain factory documents call objects like these ‘egg drainers’ when they have a small side handle. They were often included in breakfast sets and one suggestion is that they were possibly used to serve poached eggs. An article by Richard Halliday, ‘Pickle Dishes and Milseys’, written for the Northern Ceramic Society investigated further the use for these ‘drainers’. The word ‘milsey’ comes from two middle English words ‘mylke syhe’ which today mean ‘milk sieve’, which today has been applied to pottery and porcelain strainers which may or may not have been used to sieve hot milk. Halliday found that realistically when used for draining eggs they proved to be neither practical nor necessarily functional, nor upon investigation were they appropriate for draining tea. one conclusion Halliday drew is that they were perhaps used to strain boiled milk which was necessary to prevent it tasting somewhat sour in the pre-refrigeration days. indeed, Nelson’s breakfast set supplied by Chamberlain’s, Worcester in £40 - £60 1802 contained ‘six egg cups and drainers.’ Lot 77 Lot 77 A CAUGHLEY EGG CUP TRANSFER-PRINTED IN THE FISHERMAN OR PLEASURE BOAT PATTERN, circa 1780-90, unmarked, 5.8cm high (restored chip) Provenance: Wright Collection no.617, purchased in 1999 from Turner. Literature: godden, ‘Caughley and Worcester Patterns’, p.95 notes that ‘When decorated with the Fisherman or Pleasure Boat design, the price was 8d for the high egg ‘stand’’. See also ironbridge 1999 catalogue nos. 332 and 347 for very similar pieces in the same pattern and The Caughley Society Newsletter, February 2010, no. 41 which illustrates a similar example sold at Wright Manley in December 2009.

Literature: ironbridge 1999 no.319 and The Caughley Society, Caughley Blue and White Patterns, p.170.

The Caughley Society newsletter article titled ‘Gardens, Tables and Vases’ distinguishes between the Garden Floral pattern which is ‘painted and very rare’ and The Garden Table pattern which is printed.

This suggests that there may have been a dessert service dating from the latter part of the 1780s, which, if the tureens are anything to £700 - £1,000 go by, would have been of excellent quality’.

From the Star and Spangles service, the painting on plate may be influenced by a Continental or Fantasy scene. 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. £200 - £300

Chestnuts have been eaten since prehistoric times and were an important dietary staple since they could be cooked and eaten fresh from September through November when they were harvested. As recently as the 19th century, some Europeans substituted chestnuts for grain products. Dried chestnuts were such a valued staple in the Napoleonic era that the italian government actually placed a tax on them, while the chestnut trees were counted like residents in the official census. £2,000 - £3,000 Lot 110 A CAUGHLEY CIRCULAR BASKET PAINTED WITH THE SALOPIAN SPRIGS PATTERN, circa 1785-92, S mark, 15.5cm diameter Provenance: Wright Collection no.418, purchased from Carter in 1990.

Literature: Newsletter 2004 September 19 p.18 where this basket is mentioned, and noted as most likely a factory second which the factory still glazed as they were an expensive item to produce and too much waste would have been uneconomical. £250 - £300 Lot 113 A QUATREFOIL CAUGHLEY CHESTNUT BASKET, cover and stand transfer-printed in the Ripe Pomegranate pattern, circa 1780-90, basket 21cm wide, the stand 28cm wide Provenance: Wright Collection nos.707a + b. Literature: See Newsletter May 2016 no.66 p.18. A similar basket was sold at Hartlebury in the 1970s for about £27. This one probably came from Little Wenlock Hall, like col. 703 & 704. See C & W P, plate 89 for a similar chestnut basket and cover. godden notes that this moulded form was also used at Lowestoft and Worcester. See also CBE catalogue no. 191. The chestnuts intended to be served in this basket would have been roasted and peeled, then eaten as you would any other nut. The £800 - £1,200 piercing to the basket is presumably functional, allowing the escape of steam from the hot chestnuts.

Though unmarked and sold as ‘Worcester’ by the dealer, this is undoubtedly a Caughley example. The pattern is exactly the same as collection no. 339 (lot 121) which is marked, though this porter mug is a rarer shape. Portering was hard work and porters needed a considerable amount of carbohydrate as fuel - much of which they got from drinking. one estimate is that 18th century manual workers were getting 2,000 calories a day from beer. Pubs were used as fuelling stops: it was ‘’universal’’ in the 18th century, according to a writer in 1841, for public houses in London to have a bench outside for porters to sit at and a board (that is, table) alongside it ‘’for depositing their loads’’ while they stopped for ‘’deep draughts of stout” such as are idealised in Hogarth’s Beer Street. That was ‘’stout’’ as in stout porter, of course: the strong, dark brew London’s brewers developed out of the brown beer they brewed at the beginning of the 18th century was just the sort of refreshing, energising brew the porters wanted, and its popularity with the portering class is why £300 - £500 it was given their name.

Sections of the pattern do not conform to the general rule, with washing out to sections of the blue where there would normally be shading. The border to this mug is also not associated with the normal Fisherman pattern, rather being associated with the Sunflower pattern. Research by Roger Edmundson found a James, son of Joseph and Elizabeth Bullock, was baptised on the 19th of May 1757 in Kidderminster. £1,000 - £1,500

Lot 165 A CAUGHLEY CHOCOLATE CUP AND SAUCER PAINTED WITH THE SALOPIAN SPRIG PATTERN, circa 1785-92, S mark, the cup 10.2cm diameter, saucer 15.4cm diameter Provenance: Wright Collection no.279, purchased in 1982 from a Staffordshire Fair. Literature: ironbridge 1999 no.199. This is an uncommon pattern for this shape. Hot chocolate saw a huge explosion in popularity in 18th century England. The city of London had little tradition of hot drinks (coffee having only arrived five years prior) and chocolate at this stage was associated with the idleness of the Spanish and French, therefore a market had to be created. The city was bombarded with a slew of leaflets detailing the beneficial properties of chocolate and left contemporary sources such as Samuel Pepys quoting its beneficial properties for relieving a hangover by alleviating his ‘sad head’ and ‘imbecilic stomach’. Such was that by the end of the 17th century, and well into the 18th century, chocolate houses began to appear in England, coming to serve as popular meeting places for lawyers, businessmen and politicos alike. in London the principal chocolate houses were ozinda’s and White’s, both on St James’s Street, and the Cocoa Tree on Pall Mall. ‘Hell’, the inner gaming room at White’s, is depicted in the sixth episode of Hogarth’s Rake’s Progress in all its debauched glory (fittingly, it is also on fire, though few customers seem to notice or care). At the Cocoa Tree, the modern equivalent of £180,000 was placed on the roll of a single die. Whilst this may appear to us purely nihilistic, in context this highlights an important part of projection within an inherently status-dominated georgian society; Lot 167 the nobility of which would otherwise be living a somewhat idle existence and to whom chocolate drinking was a highly important part. For those on the outside such as Hogarth however, this was an easy group of the population to heap scorn upon. Contrarily, within the the private domain chocolate was considered more a feature of the bedroom. A painting by Jean-Baptiste Le Prince dated 1769 depicts a woman laying in bed, her outstretched hand reaching for a departed lover with a chocolate pot and cup by her bedside. of course, the historic claim inherited from the Aztecs that chocolate was an aphrodisiac is also responsible for this coupling of chocolate and the bedroom. Such images of leisure only added to an overall romanticism and the idea that chocolate was a luxurious treat. indeed, in 1797 hot chocolate was described as a ‘drink of the gods’ - that is, even if £150 - £250 those ‘gods’ were as debaucherous as the patrons of the London chocolate houses proved themselves to be.

Lot 233 A RARE BLACK BASALT TEAPOT AND COVER, circa 1780-90, impressed Salopian mark, 10.1cm high (repairs to cover and teapot) Provenance: Wright Collection no.963, purchased in 2014 from eBay. Literature: Newsletter January 2015 No.61 p.19f. There are probably no more than five or six pieces of Salopian black basalt known, making this an incredibly rare piece.

Lot 234 A COLLECTION OF CAUGHLEY TEA AND COFFEE WARES TRANSFER-PRINTED IN THE FRUIT AND WREATH PATTERN, circa 1778-82, with additional gilding, comprising teapot and cover, 12cm high, teapot stand, tea caddy and cover (restored), tea bowl, coffee cup and saucer, milk jug, sucrier and cover, spoon tray, slop bowl and a bread and butter plate, C mark (14) Provenance: Wright Collection no.610. The majority of these pieces were purchased from a Phillips Sale on 15/9/99 as lot 198, ‘From the collection of Lord Lilford’, sale 30807 (illustrated in the sale catalogue). This is a very interesting service as it is an example of the earlier, twenty-four reeded shape. A comparison of the teapot in this lot can be made between collection no. 386. The teapot in this is an early barrel shape which is not as uniform in design as the later example. A similar teapot also exists in the Shrewsbury Museum. Furthermore, the tea canister in this lot was exhibited at ironbridge £1,000 - £1,500 1999 no.67.

This is a copy of the Worcester version of this pattern, and is the only Caughley example known. it was discontinued at Worcester by 1775 so there is the possibility that this was a replacement for an original piece, however the possibility of a full service cannot be discounted. £500 - £700 Lot 237 A CAUGHLEY TEAPOT AND COVER TRANSFER-PRINTED WITH THE BIRDS IN BRANCHES PATTERN, Sx mark, 14.4cm high (manufacturing eruptions) Provenance: Wright Collection no.729, purchased in 2005 from Swain’s of grantham. £250 - £300

Provenance: Wright Collection no.582 purchased 1998 from S. Millington.

Provenance: Wright Collection no. 222, purchased in 1981 from Vera Dunk.

Literature: This is the only piece of Caughley known to demonstrate this pattern, otherwise better known on hard-paste porcelain from the New Hall factory. A pull from a copper plate has recently been found in the Coalport Rag Book, confirming a Shropshire origin.

Literature: ironbridge 1999 no.396.

The Rag Book is held at the Wedgwood Museum and contains patterns from both the Caughley and Coalport factories. The paste of this bowl together with the nature of the potting and the foot-rim suggest a Caughley rather than Coalport origin, although some remain skeptical of this attribution.’ The Caughley Society, Caughley Blue and White Patterns, p.183 has a full page illustration and discussion of this tea bowl. £150 - £200 Lot 245 A CAUGHLEY TEAPOT AND COVER PAINTED IN BLUE AND GILT WITH A STAR-LIKE MOTIF, circa 1792-98, 11.5cm high (a.f) Provenance: Wright Collection no.668, purchased in 2002 from a Mark Law Sale, 29/1/02 Lot 882.

In 2014 Brightwells attributed a bowl in this pattern as ‘possibly Caughley’, eventually selling for £1050. £300 - £500

Literature: Newsletter May 2014 No 58 pp 23-4, and The Caughley Society, Caughley Blue and White Patterns, p.119 where it is noted that this pattern is only known on sucriers, and may have been the standard pattern for sucriers in tea services. £250 - £350 Lot 252 A CAUGHLEY SPOON TRAY TRANSFER-PRINTED IN THE TEMPLE PATTERN, circa 1784-92, with an unglazed base, unmarked, 16cm wide Provenance: Wright Collection no. 559, purchased in 1997 from H&R Cooke.

Lot 255

Provenance: The coffee pot Wright Collection no. 535, purchased from gus Brain in 1997.

This is slightly different with cell border. it belongs to a family of early 24 reed pieces a number of which are in the collection. £180 - £220 Lot 257 A CAUGHLEY COFFEE CAN AND SAUCER PAINTED WITH THE SALOPIAN SPRIG PATTERN WITH ADDITIONAL GILDING, circa 1785-92, the can with S mark, saucer diameter 13cm (gilding rubbed) together with a further Caughley coffee can painted with the Peony pattern, C mark, 7cm high (cracked) (3) Provenance: The Salopian Sprig cup and saucer are Wright Collection no.648, purchased from Peter Wilsons in 2001, and the Peony coffee cup is Wright Collection no.508 purchased in 1996. £150 - £200

Literature: See ironbridge 1999 no.216. This is the early version of this print. £150 - £200

The extremely thin and fine potting of this piece suggests an early date, somewhere along from the transition of Apple to Apple and Damson. Compare this with the jug, collection no.475 which though is an unusual shape, is potted much more thickly. This piece was purchased in 1995.

Lot 259 A SMALL COLLECTION OF CAUGHLEY BLUE EDGED BORDER WARES, circa 1776-80, comprising a tea bowl, coffee cup, a saucer, a milk jug, a spoon tray, slop bowl, sucrier and cover and tea caddy and cover. S mark (10) (assorted collection numbers) £200 - £400

Literature: The Caughley Society, Caughley Blue and White Patterns, p.125 where it is noted that though rare on Caughley, this pattern is not uncommon on Worcester porcelain. Examples from the two factories are sufficiently similar within the tolerances of painted patterns to make distinguishing them difficult when unmarked. £120 - £180

Lot 273 (part)

Lot 274 A CAUGHLEY/COALPORT CHELSEA EWER, CIRCA 1797-1801, PRINTED IN THE BIRDS IN BRANCHES PATTERN, unmarked, 7cm high (hairline) Provenance: Wright Collection no. 935, purchased from Woolley and Wallis in 2013. Literature: Newsletter August 2013 No 55 pp 25. A hybrid hard paste porcelain, this ewer is somewhat of a puzzle piece with the quality of the printing suggesting production within the final few years of the Caughley factory when they had trouble with consistency of paste and running of the prints. £50 - £70 Lot 274

Provenance: Wright Collection no.934 purchased in 2013 from Woolley and Wallis (30/04/13, no.562). Careful comparison of this and No.49 in the ironbridge 1999 Exhibition which was sold at Halls April 2000 shows that it came out of the same mould. £400 - £600 Lot 278 A CAUGHLEY SAUCE BOAT TRANSFER-PRINTED WITH FRUIT, circa 1782-90, unmarked, 7.2cm high (firing fault inside foot) Provenance: Wright Collection no. 434.

Lot 277

Literature: The Caughley Society, Caughley Blue and White Patterns, p.212 where it is noted that this border is found on items where it may not have been possible to paint the main pattern, such as this ewer because of the moulding. This is the £400 - £600 only one of this mould recorded. Lot 280 A CAUGHLEY SAUCE BOAT PAINTED WITH THE RARE ROSE PATTERN, circa 1776-1779, reversed C mark, 15cm wide (crack around lower section of handle) Provenance: Wright Collection no.686, purchased from Rod Jellicoe in 2002.

Lot 278

Literature: The Caughley Society, Caughley Blue and White Patterns, pgs. 105 and 239. This pattern appears to have only been used on sauce boats of this shape, but similar small rose patterns are found on other pieces.

Born in 1811 of Chinese parents, the twins were successful entrepreneurs in Siam before the Scottish merchant Robert Hunter took them on a world tour. The figure is a slight curiosity; though definitively described as being the Bunker twins, the figures in this group are almost certainly female when the twins were most definitely male! The figure clad in what appears to be tartan is also holding some form of instrument, which is more suggestive of a circus than a ‘freak show’ environment. Not only this, but on their tours the twins were dressed in simple loin cloths so as to ‘show off’ their deformities, so to see them fully dressed in female clothing would be quite an anomaly. A ‘blackface’ version of this figure also exists which further adds to confusion.

An exhibition of the Secession had been held in Vienna in 1898, and Minton’s own bold adoption of the name came as part of a move to be identified in the public mind as a part of this progressive European movement of design. Ironically, Minton’s ‘Secessionist’ ware follows little in form from its European counterparts. Instead, an influence from the Glasgow School of Arts and Arts and Crafts takes precedence beyond the continental Art Nouveau from which they took their name. £80 - £100 Lot 463 A MOORCROFT GREEN GROUND VASE, in the ‘Anemone’ pattern, circa 1953-78, paper label and impressed marks £80 - £120 alongside painted signature, 19.5cm high Lot 464 A VERY LARGE DOULTON LAMBETH CHEMICAL STORAGE JAR £40 - £60 AND COVER Lot 465 A CASED ROYAL WORCESTER TEA SERVICE comprising six cups and six saucers decorated with a single green band and gilt £60 - £80 scrolling foliage, dated 1911, pattern C4522

The Personal Touch _________________________________

Asian Art Specialist Alexander Clement casts his eye over objects with provenance, an increasingly desirable attribute in this exciting market

The mystique surrounding any antique object is wrapped up in its history; the many hands it may have been through and the lives it has touched and enriched. All too often fine art objects arrive at market disjointed from their past, having been bought previously at auction or from a retailer. Occasionally, though, we receive instructions to sell an item with a wealth of provenance and this has become a critical factor in the performance of Asian art at auction. One reason for this is the high level of reproductions on the market. This is, by no means, a new thing. Chinese potters and artisans have held a long tradition of reproducing famous pieces in imperial collections, often to order, as well as recreating the styles and techniques of the past as an homage to the great craftspeople of previous generations. What this means for the buyer is that establishing authenticity can be tricky and so developing an expertise in the field is a valuable asset. But a work that comes with documented history cuts through all the uncertainty and immediately presents the market with a very attractive prospect. This was demonstrated in these rooms last May when a superb pair of Daoguang mark and period vases and covers was offered for auction. While being beautiful objects and deserving of their £20,000-30,000 estimate, they had the benefit of coming from the collection of a renowned physician and amateur historian, Dr Wilfred

96

Watkins-Pitchford. Having been held in private hands since the 1950s gave them an additional premium which generated much heated bidding, resulting in a hammer price of £85,000.

“ . . . That combination of a renowned academic collector or important country house, coupled with excellent craftsmanship, seem to be a winning formula . . .”

A number of lots in this auction have similar pedigree as well as freshness to the market. Another prominent physician and author, Dr H A Fawcett, spent a number of years as a medical officer in Hong Kong, during which time he amassed a collection of Chinese art including jades, bronzes and porcelain. On returning to the UK he took up archaeology and built an astonishing body of ancient objects, no fewer than 7000, which were eventually donated to Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery. His Chinese collection was bequeathed to family members, some of which Halls are delighted to bring to auction. They include a fine bronze figure of Guanyin (lot 601, estimate £4,000-6,000), a bronze censer with Xuande mark and possibly of the period (lot 602, estimate £800-1,200)


H107-096 Day Two.qxp_Layout 1 07/04/2017 11:25 Page 97

and a beautifully carved hardwood trunk on stand (lot 706, estimate £500-800). This last item carries a gummed paper label applied by a furniture depository and ascribed to Dr Fawcett, such a nice little touch and one I am sure will please its buyer. The study of Chinese jade was also a fascination of Professor Sydney Howard Hansford. He wrote a number of books on the subject as well as curating collections for the Oriental Ceramics Society. Lots 594 and 595 in this sale belonged to Hansford’s wife Doris, thence by descent to the present vendor. The first is a beautiful pendant in pale green nephrite jade with russet inclusions, carved as a cluster of lotus flowers. The second an amethyst pendant worked as a peach, symbolic of longevity. Each estimated at £200-300 I expect their provenance will encourage strong bidding.

grandfather and it has remained in the family ever since. We even have a photograph of the man taken, it is estimated, within a year or two of the race. One could hardly hope for better provenance and it will be very exciting to see how the market responds. The more we know about the history of the items we sell, the better they invariably do. That combination of a renowned academic collector or important country house, coupled with excellent craftsmanship, seem to be a winning formula in our current Asian art market.

One piece in the auction stands out not just for its history but also the fine workmanship it represents. Lot 620 is a superb silver bowl by renowned Chinese silversmith Wang Hing. Made in 1897 it was presented as the trophy for the Lagos Governor’s Cup horse race in that year, won by Egbert Shepherd on ‘Kitty’. Complete with a finely carved hardwood stand bearing an inscribed silver plaque, it is an imposing object, chased with dragons amid clouds and raised on three dragon supports. What is so delightful about this lot is that the trophy was won by the present vendor’s

Look for the label _________________________________

Halls furniture and works of art specialist Andrew Beeston talks about the furniture market and desirable labels on 20th century furniture. Our Spring Collection of antique and decorative furniture includes pieces that have been chosen over the past few months to give a good cross section to appeal to most tastes and budgets. What’s hot and what’s not hasn’t really changed since 2016, furnishings purchased through auction continue to be a sensible choice against buying new pieces which in all probability will not stand the test of time! As proof, a three hundred year old joined oak coffer is often as solid today as the day it was made and will have a rich patina of age that no reproduction can hope to match. It’s often said by my colleagues that our buyers are looking for brand names and labels, antique furniture rarely lends its self to labelled pieces, with the exception of a few 19th century design lead cabinet works such as, Gillows of Lancaster, Lamb in Manchester etc. This catalogue has one of the ‘superstar’ brands of 20th century furniture design and cabinet making namely Gordon Russell. Sir Gordon Russell shaped the history of 20th century British furniture design. Russell was passionate about high standards of craftsmanship, although he also accepted the necessity of machinery as a means of reaching out to a wider market without compromising quality. The three Russell tables in this auction are from the golden pre-war period when this Cotswold workshop was bridging the gap between the wonderful Arts and Crafts movement and the utility lead post war period.

150

Many of the early pieces from the Russell workshop had a paper label which always causes excitement with collectors as the labels clearly show

the design

number, designer, foreman, cabinet maker, timber used and the date a piece came out of the workshop. The only information the label lacks is the intended client for whom a piece was commissioned. Luckily our vendor for the three tables knows that they were purchased from Gordon Russell Ltd by The University of Birmingham for the main hall circa 1930 and were probably part of a larger modernisation scheme at the time. These tables are remembered as having been used at one time as the trophy tables for presentation giving, also by repute the Beatles once sat round one of these tables, unfortunately we have no evidence for this but would be delighted to hear from anyone with photographs of the ‘Fab Four’ visit to the university! Other items to note in the furniture section include lot 848, a nest of three occasional tables from the Galle workshop, better known for their Art Nouveau glass vases these tables are unusual in being from the later Art Deco period and include the all-important inlaid Galle signature. Also lot 858 a Victorian Gothic revival overmantel which shouts Pugin in style and would look great in a Victorian country house but at the same time be a wonderful focal point in a modern setting!

(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.

Christmas Collective Auction Report

As the name suggests, the Christmas Collective Auction on 7th December had something for everyone covering silver, jewellery, watches, coins, ceramics, wines and spirits, works of art, tribal art, militaria, pictures, clocks furniture and rugs. At just over 600 lots this would add up to a long day on the rostrum but the formula works and buyers and sellers both enjoy the mixed nature of these events. When this sale was held, Christmas was just around the corner and it was therefore no surprise that the top selling lot was a pretty 18 carat gold three stone diamond ring, designed as three graduated old cut diamonds claw set in white gold to a white gold shank. It was snapped up by a Shropshire private buyer for £3,800 and perhaps ended up beneath the Christmas tree all wrapped up! If there was a ring under the tree, then there may also have been a gent’s wristwatch. A good Longines example might just have been a ‘gift to self’, being a particularly rare and collectable Serbian military variant and was always destined to attract more interest than the £400/600 estimate suggested. After a great deal of heated internet and room bidding it finally fell to a Yorkshire online buyer for £2800. Despite bursting onto the pop scene, or perhaps defining it, in the early 1960s, the Beatles have not lost their allure and whenever memorabilia with good provenance surfaces at auction, the collectors appear too. Here a set of Beatles signatures contained in a contemporary magazine and with ‘rock’ solid provenance (the vendor’s father was chief make-up artist on the Beatles first film ‘A Hard Day’s Night’) were sensibly pitched at £1500/2500. On the day however, fierce competition finally saw them knocked down to a Lancashire buyer bidding online for £3400. Furniture featured in the day’s ‘Top Ten’ despite market misgivings about large brown antiques. An impressive Edwardian satinwood Chinese Chippendale bedroom suite comprising several attractive and painted pieces attracted much attention and ended up selling to a buyer from Hay on Wye for £2600, twice the bottom estimate. A large and ornate chimney piece with 17th century elements was also popular and surprised everyone when it surpassed hopes of £300/500 to take £2300 from a private buyer furnishing a country house. Decorative arts had their fifteen minutes of fame in this session too and a good Demeter Chiparus (1886-1947) bronze and ivory figure of Lazzarone consigned by an Oswestry vendor beat expectations of £1000/1500 when it sold to a Staffordshire buyer for £2100. Earlier a modern Lalique frosted and moulded Bacchantes vase, variant FO34 in original box also proved popular when it sold in the room for £2000. Other notable results included a rare German SA dagger for £2000, a joined oak cwpwrdd tridarn for £1800, £1600 for a damaged Sevres porcelain ewer and basin bought by a Paris buyer and £1450 for a graduated amber bead necklace. For some, it looked as though Christmas had definitely come early!
