1 A Greek marble grave stele fragment 4th century B.C. 28cm.;11ins. high by 25cm.; 10ins. wide ÂŁ1500-2500

A stele is a stone or wooden slab, generally taller than it is wide, erected in ancient Western culture as a monument, very often for funerary or commemorative purposes. Stelae as slabs of stone may also be used for ancient Greek and Latin government notices or as territorial markers to mark borders or delineate land ownership. The surface of the stele may very often have text and/ or have ornamentation. This example, most probably from Attic or Asia Minor, depicts a family group, one of whom is the deceased.

3 A rare Coade stone figure of Britannia stamped Coade, Lambeth and dated 1788 damages 112cm.; 44ins high Britannia was the Greek and Roman term for the geographical region of Great Britain or Great Britain and Ireland which was inhabited by the Britons and is the name given to the female personification of the island. During the reign of Charles II, Britannia made her first appearance on English coins on a farthing of 1672. With the constitutional unification of England with Scotland in 1707 and then with Ireland in 1800, Britannia became an increasingly important symbol and a strong rallying point among Britons. In the 1780’s when this statue was made, the Royal Navy was the most powerful in the world and although now sadly missing this figure would almost certainly have held a trident similar to the figure of Britannia used on British coins. She is also depicted seated astride a globe of the world as befitting the nation’s prominence as the leading world power. This figure would almost certainly have been an individual commission for a building in the city of London, since the shield next to the seated figure depicts the arms of the City of London which is based on the flag of England, having a centred St George’s Cross, with the sword in the upper hoist canton (the top left quarter). The sword is believed to represent the sword that beheaded Saint Paul who is the patron saint of the city. Eleanor Coade (d.1821) opened her Lambeth Manufactory for ceramic artificial stone in 1769, and appointed the sculptor John Bacon as its manager two years later. She was employed by all the leading late 18th Century architects. From about 1777 she began her engraved designs, which were published in 1784 in a catalogue of over 700 items entitled A Descriptive Catalogue of Coade’s Artificial Stone Manufactory. Then in 1799, the year she entered into partnership with her cousin John Sealy, she issued a handbook of her Pedlar’s Lane exhibition Gallery.

The firm became Coade and Sealey from this date and following Sealey’s death in 1813, it reverted to Coade and in 1821 with the death of the younger Eleanor Coade, control of the firm passed to William Croggan, who died in 1835, following bankruptcy. Coade’s manufactures resembling a fine-grained natural stone, have always been famed for their durability. Coade are known to have produced a number of figures of Britannia, including one on top of the dome of Liverpool Town Hall modelled by one of Coade’s leading modellers, J.C.F Rossi. Another was commissioned and made for the Custom House in London. £1500-2500

Photograph of the urns at Chiswick House following the recent 12 million pound restoration of the grounds 11 An impressive set of four 18th century carved limestone urns on pedestals, after a design by William Kent for Lord Burlington’s Chiswick House the urns 160cm.; 63ins high; 274cm.; 108ins high overall Chiswick House is a Palladian villa in Chiswick, West London. Arguably the finest remaining example of Neo-Palladian architecture in London, the house was designed by Lord Burlington and completed in 1729. The house and gardens mainly created by architect and landscape designer William Kent, is one of the earliest examples of the English landscape garden. During his trip to Italy in 1719, Burlington had acquired a passion for Palladian architecture, collecting drawings by Palladio himself, which had belonged to Inigo Jones. According to the biographer Howard Colvin, “Burlington’s mission was to reinstate in Augustan England the

Pencil sketch by William Kent of the Avenue and Exedra at Chiswick house, circa 1733, showing the urns canons of Roman architecture as described by Vitruvius, exemplified by its surviving remains, and practised by Palladio, Scamozzi and Jones. Burlington, himself a talented amateur architect and in the words of Horace Walpole “Apollo of the Arts” designed the villa with the aid of William Kent, who also took a leading role in designing the gardens. The original set of eight urns carved in Portland stone, were placed in an avenue running from the back of the house towards the exedra, in imitation of the Appian way in Rome, which was lined with funerary urns and monuments, later immortalised in a vedute ideate by Piranesi in 1756. Such was the popularity of the urn design, that Kent later used them in another of his gardens at Rousham, Oxfordshire, remodelled in the 1730’s. £20,000-40,000 For details of our buyers premium which is added onto the hammer price together with any other applicable charges please refer to our guide for prospective buyers.

22 p Jacob Epstein (1880-1959): A Bronze bust of Judith Lade on marble base 27cm.; 10½ins high Sir Jacob Epstein KBE 10 November 1880 - 19 August 1959 was an American-born British sculptor who helped pioneer modern sculpture. He was born in the United States, and moved to Europe in 1902, becoming a British citizen in 1911. Many of his larger works were of an architectural nature, however he is best known for his

22

portrait sculpture in bronze. These sculptures were often executed with roughly textured surfaces, expressively manipulating small surface planes and facial details. His sitters included Joseph Conrad, George Bernard Shaw, Albert Einstein, Paul Robeson and members of his family as well as a large numbers of children of which this is one. “To work from a child the sculptor has to have endless patience. He must wait and observe, and observe and wait. The small forms, so seemingly simple, are in reality so subtle, and the hunting of the form is an occupation that is at once tantalizing and fascinating” £3000-4000

Amongst his many public commissions are the statues to General Gordon, Chatham (1890, repeated at Khartoum, 1904) and Queen Victoria, Manchester (1901). A close associate of Alfred Gilbert (1854-1934), and a contributor to the New Sculpture movement, he exhibited busts, statuettes and genre pieces at the RA from 1875, and was elected ARA, 1888, and RA, 1895. One of his series of Ideal nudes, Onslow Ford’s full-size plaster of Peace was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1887 (no. 1944), where it was considered by the critic Edmund Gosse to be “the most delightful contribution to the exhibition”. Three years later a life-size bronze was shown (now in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool). In Gosse’s 1895 article in Magazine of Art, entitled “Sculpture in the House”, Peace was illustrated alongside statuettes by Leighton and Thornycroft in domestic settings, and was subsequently one of Ford’s first works to be cast by Arthur L. Collie as in this example. £2500-4000

25 A rare set of four ebony chairs Coromandel Coast, India, circa 1700 The production of solid ebony furniture of this type seems to have first begun in the 17th century along India’s Coromandel Coast, a textile-producing region where a number of East India company trading factories were based. A Dutch traveller recorded that the Coromandel Coast ‘is exceptionally richly provided of this ebony, as the natives make from it all kinds of curious works, as chairs, benches and small tables, carving them out with foliage, and sculpture’. Other areas in which similar carved ebony furniture was made include Sri Lanka (Ceylon) and the Dutch East Indies. Suites of ebony furniture from the East have been collected by Europeans with Antiquarian taste and an

eye for the exotic since the end of the 16th century and examples may still be found in many distinguished British country houses. Several pieces of indo-Portuguese manufacture are recorded as being included in the dowry of Catherine de Braganza at the time of her wedding to Charles II in 1662. A contemporary watercolour in the 1750’s shows a similar set of side chairs at Horace Walpole’s Thameside Villa, Strawberry Hill, described by Thomas Gray in September 1759 as having ” chairs and dressing table in real carved ebony” , and by Mrs Henrietta Pye in the following year as being “exquisitely wrought” £4000-6000

Some medieval Europeans believed narwhal tusks to be the horns from the legendary unicorn. As these horns were considered to have magic powers, such as neutralising poison and curing melancholia, Vikings and other northern traders were able to sell them for many times their weight in gold. The tusks were used to make cups that were thought to negate any poison that may have been slipped into the drink. In 1555, Olaus Magnus published a drawing of a fish-like creature with a horn on its forehead, correctly identifying it as a “Narwal”. During the 16th century, Queen Elizabeth I received a carved and bejewelled narwhal tusk worth 10,000 British Pounds—the cost of a castle from Sir Humphrey Gilbert, who proposed the tusk was from a “sea-unicorne”. The tusks were staples of the cabinet of curiosities. European knowledge of the tusk’s origin developed gradually during the Age of Exploration, as explorers and naturalists began to visit Arctic regions themselves.

Solnhofen in Germany is one of the most famous and important fossil localities in the world, and it is from here that the celebrated Archaeopteryx (the first known bird) was found. The quarries around Solnhofen were originally mined for the beautiful lithographic slate they contained and the process of lithography was invented using this stone. Whilst digging, the quarrymen often came across the remains of a variety of different creatures perfectly preserved in the rock including small dinosaurs, crocodiles, pterosaurs, plants, sea urchins, fish and sometimes - although very rarely - even insects.

Glynn Lockett studied Art and Sculpture, before setting up his own restoration studio where he started to make his own objects using rare and precious materials. Influenced by the great 16th century collectors of ethnographic and natural history artefacts originally displayed in cabinets of curiosities or Kunsthammer, his pieces all using natural and often precious materials, have a both historical and modern twist exploring the symbiosis between the finished artwork and the materials used.

The following five lots are original Spitting Image puppets from the 1980’s. In February 1984, the caricatures of Peter Fluck and Roger Law were brought to life in puppet form for television. The show Spitting Image ran for 18 years and is fondly remembered as one of the most original and funniest TV satire shows. Peter Fluck was born in 1941, and attended Cambridge School of Art, where he met Roger Law, (born 1941). Working initially as freelance illustrators, the made 3D caricatures to be photographed for articles in the glossy magazines that proliferated at that time. It became clear that the static caricatures could become puppets, and the idea for Spitting Image was conceived.

For these purposes, “counterfeit” means a lot that in Summers Place Auctions Ltd reasonable opinion is an imitation created to deceive as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not reflected by the description in the catalogue (taking into account any Glossary of Terms). No lot shall be considered a counterfeit by reason only of any damage and/ or restoration and/or modification work of any kind (including repainting or over-painting). Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinion(s) of scholar(s) and expert(s) at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or (ii) 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 to use; or likely to have caused damage to the lot or likely (in Summers Place Auctions Ltd reasonable opinion) to have caused loss of value to the lot; or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the lot from its value had it been in accordance with its description. This Guarantee is provided for a period of five (5) years after the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the Buyer and may not be transferred to any third party. To be able to claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:(i) notify Summers Place Auctions Ltd in writing within three (3) months of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the item, specifying the lot number, date

of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is thought to be counterfeit; and (ii) return the item to Summers Place Auctions Ltd in the same condition as at the date of sale to the Buyer and be able to transfer good title in the item, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale. Summers Place Auctions Ltd has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Summers Place Auctions Ltd may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer’s cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Summers Place Auctions Ltd and the Buyer. Summers Place Auctions 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 Summers Place Auctions 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.

Some of these items require specialist dismantling and may not be available for immediate collection after the sale. Intending purchasers should check the status of these lots before the sale.

3. Before the Auction Pre-sale Estimates Pre-sale estimates are intended as a guide for prospective buyers but all lots can realise prices above or below the pre-sale estimates. Seller’s confidential reserves are set no higher than the low pre-sale estimates, except in the rare circumstance in which the reserve has been set in a foreign currency and the exchange rate has fluctuated. It is advisable to consult us nearer the time of sale as estimates can be subject to revision. The estimates printed in the auction catalogue do not include the buyer’s premium or VAT. Provenance In certain circumstances, Summers Place Auctions Ltd may print in the catalogue the history of ownership of a work of art if such information contributes to scholarship or is otherwise well known and assists in distinguishing the work of art. However, the identity of the seller or previous owners may not be disclosed for a variety of reasons. For example, such information may be excluded to accommodate a seller’s request for confidentiality or because the identity of prior owners is unknown given the age of the work of art.

Summers Place Auctions shall, from time to time, be offering some lots for sale by Private Treaty in our architectural portfolio.

Please contact us for further information.

On receipt of cleared funds, lots can be collected from the Walled Garden, Stane Street, Billingshurst, West Sussex, RH14 9AB by appointment.

Sealed bid- How it works First you require a catalogue. Once you have the catalogue, you need to register your interest in bidding. This can be done quickly and simply by presenting one of our viewing staff with some photgraphic ID ( a modern driver’s license or passport is ideal) or by scanning a copy and emailing it to us. We will take a copy of the ID and a registration form can be completed. Next give us your bid(s). This can be done by filling in the bidding slip found in your catalogue. If you are sending your bidding slip to Summers Place Auctions by post, please mark the evenlope “Sealed Bid” so that we know it contains a sealed bid and do not open it accidentally. IDs may also be sent by e-mail. If you choose to send the bid electronically please email sealedbids@summersplaceauctions.com. This is a closed mailbox and will not be opened before the advertised time. However, we strongly recommend that if you have not viewed the sale in person, that you ask for condition reports on any lots you are thinking of leaving bids on. Sealed bid auctions differ from established auctions in that the bid left is the bid that will be exercised in full. Therefore, if you decide to leave a bid of, say, £900 on the lot estimated at £800-1000 and there is no higher bid (where two identical bids are received, the earliest received bid will take precedence), £900 will secure the lot subject to buyer’s premium and VAT on the premium. We will contact you if you have been the successful bidder to inform you of the lot or lots that you have purchased, so that you can make payment and make arrangements for delivery. We have had many years of experience dealing with both UK carriers and international shippers and are happy to obtain quotations and facilitate transport and shipping of single lots and multiple purchases to anywhere in the world. Bids will be opened on Thursday 30th March and sales results will appear on the Summers Place Auctions website. Please be mindful that we will have to process a large number of bids, which does take time. However, we will endeavour to get this accomplished as quickly as possible and will expect to have the results of the sale posted by the end of the day. If you have never bid in a sealed bid sale before, here are some things to be aware of as regards leaving bids for this auction: Every lot in the sale has a fixed reserve, (the minimum price for which the lot can be sold) and this is never above the low estimate, it can be slightly below, but in the vast majority of cases it is the low estimate. The highest bid (a long as it is on or above the reserve) will be the winning bid. This is the ‘hammer price’ that the lot will be sold for. You should consider leaving a bid of an odd amount in pounds, for example, rather that bidding £1,000, try say £1,004, as many lots have been bought for the sake of the odd £1! You can tailor your bid in ways that are impossible to do in a live auction. For example, if you really like three lots, but only need one, and the piece you like the most is later in the sale, simply mark your order of preference. As long as your instructions are clear, having looked at any other bids left on the lots, we will do our best to comply with your preferences. In the event of two identically highest bids, the earliest bid received with take precedence. An auction price is made up of different components; the winning bid is called the ‘hammer price’; A commission, which is in addition to the ‘hammer price’ is payable to the auctioneers. This is known as the buyers premium, on which VAT is payable. Lots marked with p are subject to Artist Resale Right (ARR), which is 4% of the “hammer price”. All lots that have additional VAT are clearly marked in the catalogue with a †.

227 A rare painted wood and wrought iron bird cage French, 1860’s with indistinct pencil inscription on back relating to the Châlons Army Camp 166cm.; 65ins high by 107cm.; 42ins wide by 54cm.; 21ins deep The camp de Châlons, also known as camp de Mourmelon, is a military camp of about 10,000 hectares at Mourmelonle-Grand, near Châlons-enChampagne. It was created at the behest of Napoleon III and opened August 30, 1857 during the Second French Empire. The initial purpose was simply for practising military manoeuvres, but it quickly turned into a showcase of the French Imperial Army, a theatrical propaganda display, where French citizens could meet the army and watch parades. Each year the camp was transformed into a town of tents and wooden chalets. Although indistinct, the inscription on the back of the birdcage would appear to say “Cage made from the rents of the battery Esquirience, Chalons Camp and dated 186*”. Similar to the artefacts produced by prisoners of war in camps, soldiers in their spare time would make objects that could be sold to members of the public visiting the camp. £1200-1800

It is regarded as a masterpiece of Neoclassical sculpture, but shows the mythological lovers at a moment of great emotion, characteristic of the emerging movement of Romanticism. It represents the god Cupid in the height of love and tenderness, immediately after awakening the lifeless Psyche with a kiss. The story of Cupid and Psyche is taken from Lucius Apuleius’ Latin novel The Golden Ass, and was popular in art.

the Communist Party Headquarters in Prague, and were removed following the ‘Velvet Revolution’ of 1991. In 1950 a set of six statues were commissioned of which three are offered here. Each was carved from a two ton block of sandstone, and since Czechoslovakia had recently become a Communist satellite, they fulfilled a primarily propaganda role in glorifying the exploits of the October 1917 revolution. It is certainly no coincidence that lot 357 looks like an idealised heroic representation of Stalin himself, who, prior to his death in 1953, still ruled the USSR with an iron fist. Given pride of place on the parapet of the Communist party headquarters, which later became the Lenin Museum, they were carved collectively by three of the leading Czechoslovakian sculptors of the time, Svata Hajerova, Irena Sedlecka and Ludvig Kodym. All three were awarded the prize of City of Prague and were Laureates of the State Prize for previous achievements. Of the three Irena Sedlecka is the only one still living and who went on to become a well-known sculptor in the West. Born in 1928 in Plze, Czechoslovakia, she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and was awarded the Lenin Prize for sculpture before fleeing the communist regime in 1967. Her first private commission in Britain, in 1975, was from Kathleen Hunt of Walthamstow, for a 70cm resin statue of the Virgin Mary and the baby Jesus (The Madonna). She has sculpted many monumental portraits and busts since, including Freddie Mercury of Queen, now in Montreux, Switzerland; Beau Brummell in Piccadilly, London, and many in private collections. (Her statue of Mercury served as a model for the large illuminated statue that currently dominates the front of the Dominion Theatre in London since the May 2002 premiere of the musical We Will Rock You.)

Commissioned portrait heads include Laurence Olivier (she also modelled the huge head used for his appearance in Dave Clark’s musical Time at the Dominion Theatre), Donald Sinden, Paul Eddington, Richard Briers, Jimmy Edwards, Ted Moult, Bobby Charlton, Lord Litchfield and Sir Frank Whittle. In August 1992 her work was shown at the Czech Embassy in London as part of an exhibition devoted to the work of five distinguished Czech émigré sculptors. She has been married several times, lastly to the sculptor Franta Belsky, who died in 2000. In late 2010, visual artist Aleksandra Mir befriended Sedlecká. A series of interviews in the following spring led to the publication of a monograph on Sedlecká’s life and work together with an unsolicited proposal of bringing the statue, now exiled in Montreux, back to London on temporary loan and to place it on the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar square. The idea has been met with varying reactions while the petition continues to gather signatures from all over the world. £8000-12,000

The Company was formed as Rotol Airscrews in 1937 by Rolls-Royce and Bristol Engines to take over both companies’ propeller development, the market being too small to support more than one company. The name is a contraction of “ROlls-Royce” and “BrisTOL”. Rotol’s props were always considered leading edge, its models equipping the Hawker Hurricane, Supermarine Spitfire, and many other Second World War-era aircraft. By the end of the war it had introduced the first five-bladed propeller to see widespread use, used on late-model Spitfires. In 1943 the company changed name from Rotol Airscrews Limited to Rotol Limited and in 1952 it acquired British Messier Limited a specialist in landing gear and hydraulics. £2500-4000

Bespoke front metal grill, wheels and exhaust system. Fitted with sound and DVD system. Fittings for Two plasma screens. Lilac chill bin units. Sparco racing seat, white fake fun fur trim ceiling, walls and dashboard, with furry dice, interior and exterior lighting, mirror tinted windows, check pattern flooring and black trim carpet. This unique item of furniture has been created for the Chateau Grey Goose EJAF project 2007 and customised by Dinos Chapman. Exhibition history: November 2007 - Sold by auction at Elton John’s Aids Foundation, London, UK; February 2008 - September 2009, Zabludowicz Collection, London, UK. Not content with rocking the art world, experimental and conceptual artist, Dinos Chapman, has come up with a fantastical piece of work. A post-modern reverie of a signature bar. The Ice-cream van bar encompasses the wit and energy that he has become famed for, and is guaranteed to become a desirable and coveted piece of art. Dinos comments “It’s weirdly cute and pink with bug bubbles all over it. It has neon underneath so it looks like its floating and cheesy house music with flashing lights so it looks like it’s just landed from Planet Disco”.

178

Voted by Motor-Head magazine as one of the World’s five coolest van modifications, commenting; “Ok you maynot think ice creams vans are cool on the face it, but with some serious modifications ice creams can be the coolest van on the block. Dinos Chapman has recently produced an ice cream van bar that serves alcoholic drinks. With chrome wheels, under-van neon lights and a fully functioning bar this ice cream will certainly serve up surprises. “ Dinos Chapman (born 1962) and his brother Jake (born 1966) are British visual artists, often known as the Chapman Brothers. Their subject matter tries to be deliberately shocking, including, in 2008, a series of works that appropriated original watercolours by Adolf Hitler. In the mid-1990s, their sculptures were included in the YBA showcase exhibitions Brilliant! and Sensation. In 2003, the two were nominated for the annual Turner Prize but lost out to Grayson Perry. In 2013, their painting One Day You Will No Longer Be Loved III was the subject of Derren Brown’s Channel 4 special, The Great Art Robbery. Please note that this vehicle, due to its customised wheels does not hold a valid MOT certificate, however it has recently been serviced and is in running order. We have been advised by a garage that if a standard set of wheels are put on it should pass an MOT test. £20,000-30,000

517 Gail Dooley Albatross Project Ceramic (lines detachable) Unique 60cm.; 23½ins high by 4m.; 157½ins wide by 48cm.; 19ins deep Photo by Simulacra studios Gail Dooley began her career as sign writer and then antiques restorer. She went on to study ceramics at the University of Westminster London and graduated in 2000. Her earlier life in Guernsey has been an influence on her work where the sea and the natural world that surrounds it, predominantly its birds, is a constant theme. Gail hand-builds her sculptures with stoneware clay and colours with oxides and glazes. Since 2007 Gail has been involved in the various projects to save the Albatross, which at one stage was suffering losses of

100,000 per year due to long line fishing. Thanks to the Albatross Task Force, this figure has been much reduced. This work was finally completed in 2009 as financial reasons required it to be shelved occasionally, in preference for other projects. This wall based sculpture made to highlight the plight of the albatross spans 13ft; the largest wingspan of the wanderer albatross. The central head is a wanderer and surrounding it are the black browed albatrosses. £10,000-15,000
