Lots 49 to 51 comprise the collection of the late Mrs Aldyth Cadoux (1927-2015). Aldyth and Theo Cadoux moved to Gayfield Square, in Edinburgh’s New Town, in 1955 when Theo was appointed to the Classics Department of the University of Edinburgh. Aldyth was an only child and her father, who had spent time in Serbia and had friends in Belgrade, was perhaps responsible for sparking an early interest in what was later to become Aldyth’s passion for Slavic languages, travel and textiles, the lots sold here reflect Aldyth and Theo’s travels throughout Russia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Mrs Cadoux was well known and welcomed by the staff of the Hermitage Museum, where she became lifelong friends with the museum director himself. Textiles were one of Aldyth’s main interests in life - she was an accomplished embroiderer, with expertise in church embroidery and gold thread work. She had extensive knowledge of fabrics, especially ancient fabrics, which she developed during her annual trips to the Middle East. Here she would advise on the age and type of cloth that was extracted from the tombs in Egypt.

Most clocks and watches will have been repaired during their normal lifetime and may now incorporate additional/newer parts. Furthermore, Lyon & Turnbull makes no representation or warranty that any clock or watch is in working order. As clocks and watches often contain fine and complex mechanisms, Buyers should be aware that a general service, change of battery or further repair work, for which the Buyer is solely responsible, may be necessary.
