PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE, THAT WEIGHTS MAY ONLY BE ACCURATE TO WITHIN 5 GRAMS AND THAT ILLUSTRATIONS ARE NOT TO SCALE. Export and Permits: it is the purchaser’s sole responsibility to identify and obtain any necessary export, import, endangered species or other permit for any lot. Matthew Barton Ltd makes no representations or warranties as to whether any lot is or is not subject to export or import restrictions or any embargoes. It is common practice for many gemstones to be treated by a variety of methods to enhance their appearance and the international jewellery trade has generally accepted these methods. Although heat enhancement of colour is usually permanent, in some cases this could affect the durability of a gemstone. Oiled gemstones may need re-oiling after a certain period. If no gemmological report is published in the catalogue, prospective buyers should assume that the gemstones or pearls may have been enhanced by some method. Buyers should be aware that Matthew Barton Ltd’s saleroom estimates assume that gemstones or pearls may have been subjected to such treatments. Estimates are published as a guide only and are subject to review. The actual hammer price of a lot may well be higher or lower than the range of figures given and there are no fixed “starting prices”. A Buyer’s premium of 20% is applicable to all lots in this sale. The Buyer’s Premium is subject to VAT at the standard rate (currently 20%). Unless otherwise indicated lots are offered for sale under the auctioneer's margin scheme and VAT on the Buyer’s Premium is payable by all buyers. Lots marked with the symbol ‡ have been imported from outside the European Union (EU) to be sold at auction under Temporary Import Rules. When released to buyers within the EU, including the UK, the buyer will become the importer and must pay VAT at the rate of 5% on the hammer price and 20% on the Buyer’s premium. Buyers outside the EU will normally be eligible to obtain a refund in respect of temporary import VAT, upon satisfactory documentary evidence of exportation. Further information on this matter is available on request.

The collection includes further pieces from this service. Frederick’s father, Thomas, of the Coldstream Guards, fought in the Napoleonic wars, and his grandfather Giles had been Governor of Bengal.

The Private Collection of Admiral Lord Hood’s Chinese Works of Art Lots 78-92 This group of Chinese artefacts has descended in the present owner’s family from their ancestor, Admiral Arthur William Acland Hood, 1st Baron Hood of Avalon (1824-1901). Arthur Hood began his career in the Royal Navy in 1836 and gained considerable experience before being promoted in November 1854 to command the brig, HMS Acorn. By May 1856 he and his vessel were in China under Rear-Admiral Sir Michael Seymour (1802-1887), commander-in-chief of the East Indies and China Station. In June of 1857 HMS Acorn was involved in the destruction of the fleet of Chinese junks in the Battle of Fatshan Creek (see lot 90) and later in the attack on Canton. It is from this period that Hood acquired the pieces comprising this collection. A MS note, probably written in the latter part of the 19th Century, attached to lot 78 explains how it came into Hood’s possession: ‘Official Necklace of Yeh Governor of Canton, China. He was wearing this when captured by Commander Arthur W.A. Hood R.N (In conjunction with [Astley] Cooper Key in his palace. Yeh was a first class Mandarin. Commander Hood commanded H.M.S. ‘’Acorn’’ – and lay for 9 months in the Canton River waiting opportunity to achieve capture of city and its Governor. When the moment arrived the 2 officers with seamen landed, and marched through the city and crowds of Chinese to the palace, captured the Governor, placed him in his own sedan chair, and carried him back to our boats and so on board H.M.S. ‘’Acorn’’ . . .’ The arrest of Governor Yeh (otherwise High Commissioner Yeh Ming-ch’en) was precipitated by his own actions, which in turn appear to have had the full backing of Peking. Although the Treaty of Nanking had been signed between Great Britain and the Emperor in 1842, thus bringing to an end the First Opium War, the Chinese felt that the accord was unfair. This led to sporadic and increasingly violent unrest. Matters finally erupted when in 1856 Yeh, then in the throes of supressing an uprising of Chinese rebels and ordering thousands of executions, seized a Hong Kong (British) registered ship and its crew. The registration had expired, a fact well known to the British (and the French) who nevertheless used the incident as an excuse to send for their fleets. The action sparked the Second Opium War (1856-1860). However much the British may have been the aggressors, the general opinion of Governor Yeh was vividly expressed by Sir John Francis Davis, former Chief Superintendent of British Trade in China, when on 28 February v1858 he wrote to the Editor of The Times in London (2 March 1857, p. 9f): ‘The Belial [i.e. worthless] art of making ‘’the worse appear the better reason’’ has been rather unluckily applied to exciting our sympathies in favour of the savage Bedlamite [i.e. lunatic] Governor Yeh, the butcher of 70,000 of his own countrymen, and the bidder at 30 dollars each (5£,) for the heads of ours. The truculent Tartars had never a more hideous representative, and I believe that not but Milton himself ever made the devil appear at all interesting.’

Since both this and the following lot come from the same source and are both inscribed ‘Fowler’, and that the other mug definitely has a Canton provenance, it would seem likely the mark ‘HC’ is for the Canton based Huo Cheong, rather than the Shanghai based Hung Chong who also used an ‘HC’ mark.

134 AN ELIZABETHAN SHOE HORN, BY ROBERT HENDART MINDUM (FLOURISHED 1593-1613), DATED 1596 incised and inked with a lady, her hands on her hips, flanked by hatched borders and the legend ‘THIS IS ROBART HEND / 1596 / ART MINDUM’, below a band of scalework, suspension hole and curved terminal 14.5cm long Provenance: Sotheby’s, London, 21 April 1978, lot 87 This lot forms an addition to the fascinating corpus of shoe horns by Robert (or ‘Robart’ as he invariably signed himself) Mindum, twenty-one of which are to be found catalogued online by Wayne Robinson, A catalogue of shoehorns made by Robert Mindum 1593-1613 (see Comparative Literature below). Apart from the horns themselves and one powder horn, nothing concrete is known of Mindum himself. It seems likely he was an amateur worker in horn; his name apparently does not appear on the rolls of the Horner’s nor any other London company. Robinson speculates, given the similarities of the decoration on pamphlets and other printed matter of the period to that on the horns, that Mindum may have been a printer, used to working with woodblocks. He makes a case for the shoe horns having bought by Mindum as ‘blanks’ from different sources. Apart from the present example, another Mindum shoe horn, dated 1599, has yet to be catalogued by Robinson, for which see Christie’s, London, 24 April 1986, lot 55. For recent auction sales of Mindum shoe horns, see Sotheby’s, New York, 4 April 2007, lot 126, sold for $20,400 (including buyer’s premium) and Rowley’s, Newmarket, 22 July 2010, lot 38, sold for £8,800 (excluding buyer’s premium) Comparative Literature: Wayne Robinson, A catalogue of shoehorns made by Robert Mindum 1593-1613, _Mindum_1593_1613.pdf (accessed 25.10.15) Wayne Robinson, Mindum’s shoehorns — a study of method, ms-shoehorns-a-study-of-method/ (accessed 25.10.15) Geoffrey Trease, London, A Concise History, London, 1975 Joan Evans, Shoe Horns and a Powder Flask by Robert Mindum, The Burlington Magazine, London, November 1944 Paula Hardwick, Discovering Horn, Guildford, 1981, p.62.

These models are probably from a set of the four Continents. For a virtuoso bronze bust of Charles I, see Victoria & Albert Museum No. A.3-1999. Francesco Fanelli, ‘the one eyed Italian’, came to London in the early 1630s from Genoa. By 1635 he was employed by Charles I and in 1640 he signed himself as Sculptor to the King of Great Britain. He appears to be the first to manufacture such bronzes in England. ( - accessed 07.10.2015) £500-700

Clodion is known to have executed a series of reliefs of young women at altars, very much in the spirit of these bronze roundels. Such bronzes were produced by a number of Parisian workshops for the emerging bourgeoisie in the late 18th and early 19th century. The 1992 Clodion exhibition catalogue refers to such work as sculptures d’amateurs (A.L. Poulet and G. Scherf, Clodion, 1738-1814, Louvre, Paris, 1992, pp.157-61).

The Gioconda ensemble was a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ by Philippe Wolfers (1858-1929) the designer and jeweller of the renowned silversmithing family. It was designed specifically for the International Exhibition for Modern and Decorative Industrial Arts, held in Paris in 1925, the exhibition that launched the term ‘Art Deco’. Comprising an entire dining room, all the elements designed by Wolfers (excepting the windows), the ensemble was shown in the Victor Horta designed Belgian pavilion at the exhibition. Wolfers, having previously worked in the Art Nouveau style, was influenced by the Wiener Werkstaette and Hoffmann’s Palais Stoclet in Brussels; the basis for the Gioconda suite was a platter designed by Wolfers in 1923, its triangular patterning formed of intersecting decagons.

For a Rudophi silver perfume bottle, with the same cast feet as the present tazza, see Victoria & Albert Museum No.919-1844. The V. & A. notes on the bottle: “This vase was purchased for£40 [in 1844] and is one of the Museum’s earliest acquisitions. It demonstrates not only Britain’s acknowledgement of the continuing high quality of workmanship and the inventiveness of design in the French decorative arts, but the perceived need for British goldsmiths and designers to improve their skills by studying the best French examples.” Stylistic comparisons may be made with the ivory Crucifixition group of 1664 by Pierre-Simon Jaillot (circa 1631-1681) in the Victoria & Albert Museum, No. A.1:0-1984.

Can a man take fire in his bosome, and his clothes not bee burned? can one goe upon hote coles, and his feet not bee burned? Provenance: H.R.H. Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany (1763-1827); Christie’s, London, Duke of York sale, 19 March 1827, lots 79-82; unknown; Sotheby’s, London, 17 October 1975, lot 452 This bowl is one from a set of thirty-four such vessels belonging George IV’s brother, Prince Frederick the Duke of York, each with a differing inscription. The Duke amassed an enormous collection of plate, much of it through the auspices of the maverick retailer, Kensington Lewis (c.1790-1854). Although Prince Frederick took his official duties seriously, his extravagant lifestyle and gambling debts forced his executors to take the rare step of holding the exceptional Royal sale at Christie’s in 1827. The Prince’s collection included a number of Farrell’s extraordinary and somewhat eccentric designs. Kensington Lewis had encouraged Farrell to gain inspiration from early silver, leading the chaser and silversmith to become one of the earliest proponents of historicist silver. These particular bowls were based upon a rare 17th century type of English fruitwood drinking bowl: for a similar bowl, dated 1610, see O. Evan-Thomas, Domestic Utensils of Wood, London 1932, plate 14.

413 A PORTRAIT MINIATURE OF WELBY SHERMAN, BY GEORGE RICHMOND (1809-1896), CIRCA 1827 in a landscape reading a book, with dark hair, red coat, buff waistcoat and white shirt, on ivory, the backboard with applied label inscribed: Welby Sherman / Painted Geo Richmond / Jany [two deleted words] : 1825 [altered to 27 by Thomas Knyvett Richmond] and TKR / 1877, gilt-metal frame rectangular 12cm Provenance: the artist; his son, Thomas Knyvett Richmond (1833-1901) by 1877 The engraver, Welby Sherman (Baptised April 1809), was the son of a London Leghorn hat merchant. He and George Richmond were members of a small coterie of friends and artists known as The Ancients. The group, including Samuel Palmer and Edward Calvert, had archaistic leanings and were inspired by the works of William Blake, at whose home they often met. According to Sherman’s entry on the Tate website, he was perpetually short of money and swindled Palmer’s brother William of£500. Certainly he appears on the Old Bailey lists for larceny in 1838, although the case does not seem to have gone to trial. He married 24 April 1848 at St Mary’s Bermondsey to Gertrude Clarke (widow), at which time he was described as an engraver. As well as the Tate’s holding, examples of his engravings are held by the Victoria & Albert and the New York Metropolitan.


A Portrait of Welby Sherman Asleep in a Chair, 1828. George Richmond (British, 1809-1896). Graphite with touches of watercolor on vellum; 16.0 x 13.2 cm. The Cleveland Museum of Art, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Edward B. Greene by exchange 1981.29

From the late 1830s George Richmond specialised in drawing chalk portraits, the veracity and sensitivity of which led to great acclaim and success. At the outset of his career however, and almost certainly because he was the son of the miniaturist Thomas Richmond, he practised the art of his father. It is notable that even at this early stage he eschewed the carefully controlled brushwork of his parent in favour of a more lively technique that included multi-directional strokes, scuffing and scratching out. This freedom was most likely inspired by his friends among The Ancients. Whatever the stimulus, it resulted in a small but remarkable group of psychologically penetrating portraits, exemplified by this rediscovered miniature of his contemporary and fellow artist, Welby Sherman: a sympathetic rendering by one adolescent of another, the latter as yet perhaps untroubled by pecuniary problems. Other miniatures in this group include two in the National Portrait Gallery, London (a portrait of Samuel Palmer painted in 1829, NPG 2223 and a self-portrait painted in 1830, NPG 6586) and one in the Fitzwilliam, Cambridge (a portrait perhaps of Mr Ashby, 1830, PD.221-1994). The present work predates all these. Another charming Richmond portrait of Sherman is illustrated here, Cleveland Museum of Art, No.1981.29. £1500-2500

Conditions of Business for Buyers 1.

Introduction (a) The contractual relationship of Matthew Barton Ltd and Sellers with prospective Buyers is governed by:(i) these Conditions of Business for Buyers; (ii) the Conditions of Business for Sellers displayed in the saleroom and available from Matthew Barton Ltd.; (iii) Matthew Barton Ltd.’s Authenticity Guarantee; (iv) Any additional notices and terms printed in the sale catalogue, in each case as amended by any saleroom notice or auctioneer’s announcement. (b) As auctioneer, Matthew Barton Ltd. acts as agent for the Seller. Occasionally, Matthew Barton Ltd. may own or have a financial interest in a lot.

2 Definitions “Bidder” is any person making, attempting or considering making a bid, including Buyers; “Buyer” is the person who makes the highest bid or offer accepted by the auctioneer, including a Buyer’s principal when bidding as agent; “Seller” is the person offering a lot for sale, including their agent or executors; “MBL” means Matthew Barton Ltd., Auctioneers, 25 Blythe Road London W14 0PD, company number 6504692. “Buyer’s Expenses” are any costs or expenses due to Matthew Barton Ltd. from the Buyer; “Buyer’s Premium” is the commission payable by the Buyer on the Hammer Price at the rates set out in the Guide for Prospective Buyers; “Hammer Price” is the highest bid for the property accepted by the auctioneer at the auction or the post auction sale price; “Purchase Price” is the Hammer Price plus applicable Buyer’s Premium and Buyer’s Expenses; “Reserve Price” (where applicable) is the minimum Hammer Price at which the Seller has agreed to sell the lot.

(c) Without prejudice to Condition 4(b), any claim against MBL and/or the Seller by a Bidder is limited to the Purchase Price for the relevant lot. Neither MBL nor the Seller shall be liable for any indirect or consequential losses. (d) Nothing in Condition 4 shall exclude or limit the liability of MBL or the Seller for death or personal injury caused by the negligent acts or omissions of MBL or the Seller. 5 Bidding at Auction (a) MBL has absolute discretion to refuse admission to the auction. Before sale, Bidders must complete a Registration Form and supply such information and references as MBL requires. Bidders are personally liable for their bid and are jointly and severally liable with their principal, if bidding as agent (in which case MBL’s prior and express consent must be obtained). (b) MBL advises Bidders to attend the auction, but MBL will endeavour to execute absentee written bids provided that they are, in MBL’s opinion, received in sufficient time and in legible form. (c) When available, written and telephone bidding is offered as a free service at the Bidder’s risk and subject to MBL’s other commitments; MBL is therefore not liable for failure to execute such bids. Telephone bidding may be recorded. 6 Import, Export and Copyright Restrictions MBL and the Seller make no representations or warranties as to whether any lot is subject to import, export or copyright restrictions. It is the Buyer’s sole responsibility to obtain any copyright clearance or any necessary import, export or other licence required by law, including licenses required under the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). 7.

Conduct of the Auction (a) The auctioneer has discretion to refuse bids, withdraw or reoffer lots for sale (including after the fall of the hammer) if (s)he believes that there may be an error or dispute, and may also take such other action as (s)he reasonably deems necessary. (b) The auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding in such increments as (s)he considers appropriate and is entitled to place bids on the Seller’s behalf up to the Reserve Price for the lot, where applicable. (c) Subject to Condition 7(a), the contract between the Buyer and the Seller is concluded on the striking of the auctioneer’s hammer. (d) Any post-auction sale of lots shall incorporate these Conditions of Business.


Payment and Collection (a) Unless otherwise agreed in advance, payment of the Purchase Price is due in pounds sterling immediately after the auction (the “Payment Date”). (b) Title in a lot will not pass to the Buyer until MBL has received the Purchase Price in cleared funds. MBL will generally not release a lot to a Buyer before payment. Earlier release shall not affect passing of title or the Buyer’s obligation to pay the Purchase Price, as above. (c) The refusal of any licence or permit required by law, as outlined in Condition 6, shall not affect the Buyer’s obligation to pay for the lot, as per Condition 8(a). (d) The buyer must arrange collection of lots within 10 working days of the auction. Purchased lots are at the Buyers risk from the earlier of (i) collection or (ii) 10 working days after the auction. Until risk passes, MBL will compensate the Buyer for any loss or damage to the lot up to a maximum of the Purchase Price actually paid by the Buyer. MBL’s assumption of risk is subjected to the exclusions detailed in Condition 5(d) of the Conditions of Business Sellers (e) All packing and handling of lots is at the Buyer’s risk. MBL will not be liable for any acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers.

The Buyer’s Premium, Buyer’s Expenses and Hammer Price are subject to VAT, where applicable. 3.


Examination of Lots (a) MBL’s knowledge of lots is partly dependent on information provided by the Seller and MBL is unable to exercise exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Each lot is available for examination before sale. Bidders are responsible for carrying out examinations and research before sale to satisfy themselves over the condition of lots and accuracy of descriptions. (b) All oral and/or written information provided to Bidders relating to lots, including descriptions in the catalogue, condition reports or elsewhere are statements of MBL’s opinion and not representations of fact. Estimates may not be relied on as a prediction of the selling price or value of the lot and may be revised from time to time at MBL’s absolute discretion. Exclusions and limitations of liability to Buyers (a) MBL shall refund the Purchase Price to the Buyer in circumstances where it deems that the lot is a counterfeit, subject to the terms of MBL’s Authenticity Guarantee. (b) Subject to Condition 4(a), neither MBL nor the Seller:(i) is liable for any errors or omissions in any oral or written information provided to Bidders by MBL, whether negligent or otherwise; (ii) gives any guarantee or warranty to Bidders and any implied warranties and conditions are excluded (save in so far as such obligations can not be excluded by English law), other than the express warranties given by the Seller to the Buyer (for which the Seller is solely responsible) under the Conditions of Business for Sellers; (iii) accepts responsibility to Bidders for acts or omissions (whether negligent or otherwise) by MBL in connection with the conduct of auctions or for any matter relating to the sale of any lot.

Matthew Barton Ltd’s Authenticity Guarantee If Matthew Barton Ltd sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Matthew Barton Ltd. will rescind the sale and return the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Matthew Barton Ltd. for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is nontransferable. “Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Matthew Barton Ltd’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work (including, but not limited to, recolouring, tooling or repatinating). Please note that this guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; (i) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Matthew Barton Ltd’s reasonable opinion); or

(i) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description. To claim under this guarantee the Buyer must:(i) notify Matthew Barton Ltd in writing within one (1) month of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and (i) return the Property to Matthew Barton Ltd in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale. Matthew Barton Ltd has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Matthew Barton Ltd may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the relevant field and acceptable to Matthew Barton Ltd Matthew Barton Ltd shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Matthew Barton Ltd decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports, provided always that the costs of such reports have been approved in advance and in writing by Matthew Barton Ltd.
