1 Circle of Gabriel Grupello: A carved sandstone figure of Prometheus circa 1700 183cm high The mythological figure of Prometheus stole the secret of fire from the god Zeus and as an eternal punishment, is chained to a rock in the Caucasus, where his liver is eaten daily by an eagle only to be regenerated by night, due to his immortality. The eagle is a symbol of Zeus himself. Years later, the Greek hero Heracles (Hercules) slays the eagle and frees Prometheus from the eagle’s torment. Gabriël Grupello 1644 -1730 was a Flemish Baroque sculptor who produced religious and mythological sculptures, portraits and public sculptures. He was a virtuoso sculptor who enjoyed the patronage of several European rulers. He studied under the leading Baroque sculptor Artus Quellinus I. He enjoyed the patronage of various European rulers, including the Spanish king Charles II, William II of Orange and Frederick III, the Elector of Brandenburg. His work was influenced by the Flemish Baroque, and in particular Peter Paul Rubens, and developed into a full-blown Baroque style as in this example. Provenance: Tony Roth, Art Historian and Sculpture dealer £5000-8000

5 Pasquale Romanelli: A carved white marble figure of Garibaldi signed P. Romanelli, Firenze 1875 119cm high Giuseppe Garibaldi 1807-1882, was an Italian general, politician and nationalist who played a large role in the history of Italy. He is considered, with Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour, Victor Emmanuel II of Italy and Giuseppe Mazzini, as one of Italy’s “fathers of the fatherland”. Garibaldi personally commanded and fought in many military campaigns that led eventually to the Italian unification. He was appointed general by the provisional government of Milan in 1848, General of the Roman Republic in 1849 by the Minister of War, and led the Expedition of the Thousand on behalf and with the consent of Victor Emmanuel II. Romanelli was a committed patriot who knew Garibaldi personally and fought with him in the war of Independence from the Austrians in 1848-49.

9 A pair of Handyside foundry cast iron urns 2nd half 19th century 76cm high Andrew Handyside started the foundry in 1806 and by 1851 the firm had expanded and was operating out of the Britannia Iron Works in Derby. At the Great Exhibition they exhibited a Medici vase, a bacchanalian vase and a bronzed vase decorated with busts of Peel, Nelson, Watt, Wellington, Stephenson, Scott, Shakespeare and Milton, together with a fountain. At the time, the foundry was described as being “from the magnitude of its operations, second to none in England”. They produced two catalogues in 1848 and 1874.

This model is illustrated in the Manifattura di Signa catalogue plate CXII, model No:1389. (See engraving). ÂŁ1500-2500

19 Gertrude Spencer-Stanhope: A rare H.H. Martyn and Co lead figure of Pan early 20th century 79cm high Gertrude Spencer-Stanhope (1857-1944) was an English sculptor and painter. She was the niece of John Roddam Spencer-Stanhope and the cousin of Evelyn Pickering de Morgan, both of whom were noted pre-Raphaelite painters. She exhibited paintings during the period 18861909 at both provincial and London galleries, but is known to have produced perhaps only three sculptures including this model which was cast in both bronze and lead by H.H.Martyn of Cheltenham. The three - a female nude, A Pan and a lyre playing Orpheus- were allocated to Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council for display at Cannon Hall Museum housed in her former family home. The works are regarded as “fine examples of the small-scale domestic bronze that was popular in late 19th century Britain,” and are notable also because women rarely had the opportunity to work as sculptors at the time. The firm of H.H Martyn was established in Cheltenham in 1888 and by the 1920’s employed over 1000 craftsmen as wood and stone carvers, modellers of decorative plaster, sculptors, artists in wrought iron, large and

18


small scale casters in all metals, fine furniture makers and artists in Stained Glass. They were appointed Architectural Decorators to His Majesty the King in 1916 for work at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. The company were involved in many architectural and interior projects including the Speakers Chair and dispatch Boxes for the House of Commons, St Paul’s Cathedral Pulpit; and the façade of Selfridge’s Oxford St, to name but a few. Their foundry was responsible for a huge variety of commissions, from the screen and gates originally at Marble Arch to the over life size bronze figure of Sir Winston Churchill by the sculptor Oscar Nemon, commissioned for the London Guildhall. The company also fitted out the first class areas of over 100 ships including The Titanic and Canberra, as well as the Queens Mary and Elizabeth for the Cunard line. Early in the First World War, their craftsmen were called upon to turn their hands to aircraft production, leading to the establishment of the Gloster Aircraft Company in 1917. They enjoyed a close connection with the Bromsgrove Guild, whose founder Walter Gilbert later worked for H.H. Martyn and produced a range of garden sculptures and ornament in bronze, lead and composition stone including these examples in which the quality of casting is comparable to the work produced at the Bromsgrove Guild. Provenance: The Hearne, Charlton Kings, Cheltenham home of Alfred W Martyn Managing Director of H.H.Martyn & Co from 1917 to 1939 and thence by descent. Literature: The Best, H.H. Martyn and Co, Specialists in Architectural Decoration and The Gloucester Aircraft Company, John Whitaker, Promenade Publications, 1985, a copy of which is included with this lot. £1000-1500

21 A rare Bromsgrove Guild lead figure of a girl holding a butterfly early 20th century the base stamped H.W. Cashmore & Son craftsman, Westminster SW 80cm high

The Bromsgrove Guild of Applied Arts was established in 1894 by Walter Gilbert who took over a foundry in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. It was first involved with decorative ironwork, but the business soon expanded into a great many other fields. By 1900 Gilbert had gone into partnership with a Mr McCandlish and had taken over further premises in the town which housed bronze and lead foundries, as well as wood and stone carving studios. By 1908 they had established W.H. Cashmore in Victoria Street as their retail outlet and as a result of their most famous commission, the iron and bronze gates outside Buckingham Palace, they were issued with a Royal Warrant appointing them metal workers to Edward VII (an honour repeated two years later under George V). Unlike the majority of other contemporary English manufacturers of garden ornaments most of the Guild’s figurative subjects were modelled in the popular styles of the day. In 1921 the Guild became a limited company, but by this date some of the members had left to start companies of their own. However the Guild continued to produce a variety of garden ornaments for many years finally closing in 1966. £1800-2500

23 S Roger Leigh Cyclops Ciment Fondue Unique 146cm high Roger Leigh was born in Broadwell, Gloucestershire in 1925. Sculptor, architect, artist in photomontage and teacher, he served in the Royal Airforce during WWII, and then studied architecture at Liverpool University. He was trained in town planning, 1947-53, but began sculpting in 1948 after seeing the famous Battersea Park open-air sculpture exhibition. From 1953-4 Leigh was assistant to Barbara Hepworth, and joined the Penwith Society of Arts. After working as an architect for London County Council, 1954-7, sculpting in his spare time, Leigh returned to Cornwall in 1957, serving some months with Hepworth again and working part-time as an architect in Truro. In 1958 he exhibited at the Drian Gallery in London along with Denis Mitchell & Brian Wall. He served as Chair of the Penwith Society, was involved in securing an old factory in Back Road West that would become the society’s ‘Penwith Gallery.’ From 1960-63 he taught at Treswithian School in Camborne under Jack Pender before moving to Wiltshire in 1966, the year he began teaching at Exeter School of Art. From 1964 he held a series of one-man shows, including New Vision Centre Gallery, London, Arnolfini Gallery in Bristol and Portsmouth City Art Gallery. He died in 1997. £3000-5000

Gregory has exhibited widely both in the UK and globally, including Germany, France, Italy, Iceland, New York and Czech Republic. In 2002 he exhibited in Thinking Big, 21st Century British Sculpture, at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Venice. In 2005-2006 Gregory held a solo exhibition Skulduggery with Cass Sculpture Foundation. In 2006-2007 Damien Hirst, who has been a collector of Gregory’s work since 2002, included some of Gregory’s skull sculptures in his Murderme exhibition In the darkest hour there may be light at the Serpentine Gallery, London. In 2007 Gregory had a solo exhibition Steven Gregory, Bone Stone Bronze at the Nicholas Robinson Gallery in New York. Steven Gregory is also a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibitions in London and continues to maintain a strong presence of work at the Cass Sculpture Foundation, West Sussex where other bronzes in this edition were exhibited. Their exhibition notes remarked; “Anthropomorphic paper bags cast in bronze. These insectile apparitions have amused, enthralled and have even made skin creep, as they are variously funny, intriguing and sinister. Like circus clowns they emerge jauntily from the woodland, their bag bodies in attitudes of buffoonery, frolic and mischief. The sense of carnival is at once fun and a little scary in this bag parade. As children, we all at some point put our heads in paper bags. To hide from the world and yet be part of it, with an assumed identity unlike our own, is as basic as learning to walk. Masks are as old as human ritual, they hide, alter and also protect - and so do paper bags.” £2500-4000

The frame supporting the missile is not included with the lot.

A rare SA-4 “Ganef” missile circa 1968 878cm long The 2K11 Krug (NATO code SA-4 Ganef) is a Soviet-made medium-range air defence missile. The development of the system started in 1958. The first version, Krug-A, entered service in 1967, with extensively modified versions, the Krug-M in 1971 and the Krug-M1 in 1974, which were developed to rectify problems discovered during army service. It was first unveiled during a

28

military parade in Moscow in May 1965. Modified versions, the Krug-M in 1971 and the Krug-M1 in 1974 were developed to rectify problems discovered during army service. The 2K11 was briefly operated by the Soviet army during the war in Afghanistan in 1979 and 1980, but was withdrawn several months after the initial invasion. In 1997, it was reported that, between 1993 and 1996, some 27 fire units of Krug and 349 missiles had been sold to Armenia.

Each TEL (Transporter Erector Launcher) SA-4 Ganef 2P24 (2P24M for the Krug-M version) consists of a tracked armoured chassis on top of which is mounted a hydraulically operated turntable carrying two missiles. The launcher can be traversed through 360º and the missiles elevated up to an angle of 45º on their launcher arms for launching

the missile. Once they have burned and the missile is aloft, a liquid-fuelled ramjet sustainer engine is ignited. It reaches speeds of up to Mach 4 and has an effective range of 50-55 km (31-34 miles) depending upon the version. It carries a 135 kg (300 lb) fragmentation warhead. Possible engagement altitudes range from 100m to 27 km (330-88,500 feet).

The missiles are launched with the aid of four solid fuel rocket motors inside boosters attached to the outside of

29 A Norman Foster ‘Nomos’ chromium plated and glass table made by Tecno 180cm long by 100cm wide The result of collaboration between Norman Foster and the Italian furniture manufacturer Tecno, the Nomos Table is characterised by its splayed metal legs, angled from a central spine, as if poised for flight. Some critics have suggested references to the lunar landing module; another image is the grasshopper with its slim body and gangly legs.

Here, he catered to Dukes and Duchesses, the rich and famous, and sportsmen the world over. He was so successful, and his reputation so great, that following his own death in 1912, the company he founded stayed in business for another 60 years, despite the general decline in interest in taxidermy through the twentieth century. During this period, the ďŹ rm employed hundreds of workers, and was always renowned for the high quality of the work produced and the top quality standards maintained by its employees. Ward himself made many innovations in terms of taxidermy, and always maintained that a good taxidermist was not simply a craftsman but an artist and that he or she should be regarded as nothing less.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS

In renaissance style

The following are examples of the terminology used in this catalogue. Any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age provenance and condition is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken as a statement of fact.

In our opinion a work executed in the style of the renaissance but not necessarily of that period.

Please read carefully the terms of the Authenticity Guarantee and the Conditions of Business for Buyers set out in this catalogue. Antonio Canova In our opinion a work by the artist. In the case of 19th century sculpture this indicates that the work was made in our opinion either by the artist or by a foundry or editor who had the rights to reproduce the artist’s original model either during the artist’s lifetime or for a defined posthumous period. (When the artist’s forenames are not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named). Attributed to Antonio Canova In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainty as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category.

The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are original to the model or authorized by the sculptor’s studio or editor but not necessarily from the hand of the artist. The term bearing the signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/ or inscription have been added at a later date. Dimensions are given height before width Condition of lots Condition is only noted in the catalogue where an item is severely distressed. Prospective purchasers making commission bids without viewing the sale can be given condition reports on any lot on request. It is essential for buyers to satisfy themselves as to the condition of lots prior to the sale and to arrange their own insurance cover against loss and damage immediately after the sale. Please refer to the Conditions of Business for Buyers.

Manner of Antonio Canova In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date After Antonio Canova In our opinion a copy at a later date of a known work by the artist. In the 19th century this indicates that in our opinion the work was made by a foundry or editor at a later date and apparently without exclusive rights. Italian 18th century In our opinion a work from that region and of that date. Probably Italian 18th century In our opinion a work that is likely to be from that region and/or of that date but less certainty as to the region and/or date than is expressed in the preceding category.

of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is thought to be counterfeit; and

If Summers Place Auctions Ltd sells an item which subsequently is shown to be a “counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Summers Place Auctions Ltd will set aside the sale and refund to the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Summers Place Auctions Ltd for the item, in the currency of the original sale.

(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.

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.

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.

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.

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 photographic 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 envelope “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 21st September 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 (as 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 will 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 S 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 †.


Sealed bid auction Lots 200-490 All sealed bids must be with us, at the latest by 4pm BST on the 20th September since the bids will be opened on the 21st September. The winning bid will be the highest left on each lot above the reserve. Bids are non sequential and the highest bid left is the price at which the lot is sold plus buyers premium and any VAT liable. In the event of two identical winning bids being left on the same lot, the earliest received bid shall take precedence. Summers Place Auctions decision on which is the winning bid shall be ďŹ nal. Winning bidders will be invoiced after the bids are opened.

John Marriott Blashfield, remarked in his essay Account of the History and Manufacture of Ancient and Modern Terracotta (1855) that he had been inspired to make a kind of artificial stoneware by seeing the kind of pieces for which Mark Blanchard had been awarded prizes at the Great Exhibition of 1851. He obtained Letters Patent in 1854 for “Improvements in the Manufacture of China, Pottery, Bricks” and other articles, made for the most part from clay and again in 1860 for “improvements in burning pottery and china ware”. He had a manufactory in Millwall, Poplar with a sales outlet at

No. 1 Praed Street, Edgware Road, London, but moved to Stamford, Lincolnshire in 1859, to be nearer the clay-beds. He won medals for Terra Cotta, in the glass and pottery and architectural objects classes at the International Exhibition in 1862 and a silver medal at the Paris International Exhibition of 1867. This lot is illustrated in the 1857 Blashfield catalogue no 173. (see engraving) £1000-1500

367 S Maida Crowe A carved Forest of Dean stone figure 203cm high Maida Crowe was born in Axminster, Devon in 1915. After a private education, she studied at the City and Guilds of London Art School from 1957-1962. She became a member of the Free Painters and Sculpture movement working in both wood and stone. Established in 1952, FPS was originally associated with the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts). Founding members featured many high profile and influential artists, including Roy Rasmussen, Lyall Watson and Maurice Jadot. FPS played a significant part in the establishment of abstract art in the 1950’s and 60’s and was the first of a number of post war movements that freed artists from the orthodoxy of rigid and purely technical judgements. In 1981 there was an exhibition of sculpture by Maida Crowe in Southwark Cathedral. Roy Rasmussen in the preface to the History of Free Painters and Sculptors commented; “Her wood carvings were at home in any modern collection, and graced many FPS exhibitions. But the deeper implication of her sculptures was religious, and for her it was appropriate that they should be shown in the place where she worshipped. She worked mainly on a scale of two to six feet. Her sculptures were not overtly religious, she did not use obvious religious symbols. A woman who was comfortable and tolerant in the company of diverse opinions, she could reveal a sparkling humour.” “She was passionately involved in the endless debate over forms of modern expression. She described her own work as an inward search.” She showed at the RBA as well as in the provinces and had solo exhibitions at the Cockpit and Loggia galleries. A copy of Maida Crowe’s book of her work; First and Last: A Search for Meaning, A Spiritual Journey Through Sculpture in 1994 is included in this lot which gives a full account of the carving of this statue and the placing of it in her garden. £3000-5000 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.

This exhibition included Reg Butler, Lynn Chadwick, William Turnbull and Geoffrey Clarke but it was of Wright that the Guardian art critic, Charles Sewter, wrote: “It would not be outrageous to claim that Wright is the most gifted sculptor working in Britain today”. His work, ‘’The Argument’’, won the acquisition prize at the São Paulo Biennial in 1957. 368S Austin Wright Main Road Aluminium

Despite the praise that Austin Wright’s work has received, he is, on the whole, a greatly neglected sculptor.

Examples of his work can be seen on public display in Bradford, Leeds and York. Further examples of Austin’s works can be viewed at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. £800-1200
