1 After the Antique: A Marble Sarcophagus Italian, 18th century 50cm.; 20ins high by 208cm.; 82ins long by 56cm.; 22ins deep The central panel inscribed with five lines of Latin inscription: D(is) M(anibus)/ C(aio) Tutilio Rufino/ (....) venatori/ T(itus) Claudius Secundus/ amico b(ene) m(erenti) p(osuit) (“To the shades of the deceased. For Gaius Tutilius Rufinus the hunter. Titus Claudius Secundus built this for his well-deserving friend”). Provenance: William Ponsonby, 2nd Earl of Bessborough (170493), Parkstead House,

Roehampton, Middlesex by descent to his son Frederick Ponsonby, 3rd Earl of Bessborough (17581844). House Sale of Ashby Folville Manor, Leicestershire by Heathcote Ball and Co Thursday, 15 March 1984, lot 117 and thence by descent. Published: Henry Blundell, An account of the statues, busts, bass-relieves, cinerary urns, and other ancient marbles and paintings at Ince. Collected by H.B., Liverpool, 1803, p. 184, no. DXXXIX (“It appears by an inscription on the body of the Sarcophagus, which yet remains at Roehampton, that this

Sarcophagus contained the remains of some great man, noted for hunting”) Henry Blundell, Engravings and etchings of sepulchral monuments, cinerary urns, gems, bronzes, prints, Greek inscriptions, fragments, &c., in the collection of Henry Blundell, Esq. at Ince, vol. II, 1839, cat. 539, pl. 126 (“At Roehampton is said to remain, the sarcophagus from which it was taken, with an inscription below: [transcription follows]”) Adolf Michaelis, Ancient Marbles in Great Britain, Cambridge, 1882, p. 402 W. Henzen and G. De Rossi, Inscriptiones urbis Romae latinae, vol. VI, 5: Inscriptiones falsas urbi Romae attributas

comprehendens, Berlin, 1885, no. 3516 Elizabeth Angelicoussis, “Sarcophagi from Ince Blundell,” Mitteilungen des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts. Römische Abteilung, vol. 111, 2004, p. 276 Note: The present lot once supported an ancient lid carved in front with a hunting scene flanked by two theatre masks. (See engraving). The lid was offered as lot 7 in the 1801 auction of the Bessborough Collection, where it was purchased by Henry Blundell for his collection at Ince. It is now in the Merseyside County Museum in Liverpool (B. Ashmole, A catalogue of the ancient


marbles at Ince Blundel Hall, New York, 1929, p. 111, no. 307, pl. 48; B. Andreae, Sarkophage mit Darstellungen aus dem Menschenleben. Die römischen Jagdsarkophage [Die antiken Sarkophagreliefs, vol. I, 2], Berlin, 1980, no. 37). The sarcophagus itself was not included in the sale and remained at Roehampton and was subsequently moved to Ashby Folville Manor, Leicestershire where it was included in a contents sale by Heathcote Ball & Co. on 15th March 1984 lot 117 where it was

erroneously catalogued with a Stowe provenance. An original catalogue of this sale is included with the lot. The sarcophagus was probably carved to order in the 18th Century, as a means to support and enhance what seems to have been generally recognized at the time as an unusually finely decorated lid (see Blundell, op. cit, 1803: “the best piece of sculpture known to exist on that kind of monument. At the sale it was much recommended by the virtuosi, and had

many competitors for it”).

2

The funerary inscription is also an 18th Century creation. It refers to the deceased as a hunter (venator), thus establishing a connection between the modern sarcophagus and the ancient lid. The function of the inscription, just like that of the sarcophagus on which it was engraved, was “to enhance the marble [lid]’s antiquarian and monetary value” (Angelicoussis, op. cit., 2004).

7 A pair of Victorian Gothic carved sandstone architectural gargoyles 19th century 30cm.; 12ins high by 114cm.; 44ins long Provenance: House Sale of Ashby Folville Manor, Leicestershire by Heathcote Ball and Co, Thursday, 15 March 1984, lot 100. £500-800

8 A carved Anston stone architectural gargoyle from the Palace of Westminster mid 19th century 38cm.; 15ins high by 91cm; 36ins long Provenance: Removed from the Palace of Westminster. This lot is sold with an original letter from the Ministry of Public Buildings and Works stating that the gargoyle was originally incorporated into the fabric of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, architectural elements and occasionally statues have been sold off or offered to MPs and peers as part of the ongoing restoration programmes. Given the Gothic style of this piece, it is most likely to date to Charles Barry and Augustus Pugin’s rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament after the fire of 1834. £600-1000

9 A pair of Handyside Foundry cast iron urns 2nd half 19th century with old paint finish 79cm.; 31ins high Andrew Handyside started the foundry in 1806 and by 1851 the firm had expanded and operated out of the Britannia Iron Works, Derby. At the Great Exhibition they exhibited Medici vases,

a bacchanalian vase and a bronzed vase decorated with busts of Peel, Nelson, Watt, Wellington, Stephenson, Scott, Shakespeare and Milton, and a fountain. At the time, the foundry was described as being “from the magnitude of its operations is second to none in England”. In 1873 it was incorporated as a Limted Company. They produced two catalogues, one circa 1850 and another in 1874. This urn is illustrated as no. 6 in their catalogue. (See engraving) £1200-1800

10 A stoneware urn circa 1840 after a design by George Bullock on later stone base 132cm.; 52ins high This urn bears a striking similarity to a pair illustrated in a contemporary plate from Ackermann’s The Repository of Arts, Literature, Fashions and Politics, published between 1809 and 1828. The Repository cites George Bullock in relation to various interior and furniture designs for eight specific plates. One plate entitled ‘Grecian Furniture’ dating from May 1816 illustrates an interior setting with a sofa flanked by a pair of rectangular plinths applied with classical winged female figures surmounted by a pair of twin handled urns. With an almost identical laurel frieze and floral rosette scrolling handles, this urn only differs in that it has additional palmette decoration to its neck. A contemporary description of the contents of his Liverpool showroom given in ‘The Picture of Liverpool’ published in 1805 mentions ‘...Visitors are gratuitously admitted to a suite of rooms, in which a variety of the most fashionable and elegant furniture, in a stile of exquisite taste, is constantly displayed as well as an extensive collection of statues, figures, sphinxes and griffins in marble, bronze, or artificial stone’ This ‘artificial stone’ was presumably a high fired ceramic body similar to the type produced at the Coade Factory in the late 18th and 19th century and then carried on by J. M. Blashfield and Blanchard in the 19th Century. Literature: George Bullock, Cabinet-Maker, with introduction by Clive Wainwright, Exhibition Catalogue for H. Blairman & Sons, London and Sudley Art Gallery Liverpool, John Murray and H. Blairman & Sons, 1988. £2500-4000

12 A carved white marble figure of a fisher girl sewing a net Italian, late 19th century 76cm.; 30ins high £3000-5000

12


13 A carved white marble figure of Jael holding a mallet and tent peg Italian, circa 1900 indistinctly signed 87cm.; 34ins high Jael is a woman mentioned in the Book of Judges in the Hebrew Bible, as the heroine who killed Sisera to deliver Israel from the troops of King Jabin. Sisera the commander of the invading army arrived on foot at the tent of Heber the Kenite on the plain of Zaanaim. Heber’s wife Jael (whose tent would have been separate from Heber’s) welcomed Sisera into her tent and covered him with a blanket. As he was thirsty, she gave him a jug of milk. Exhausted, Sisera lay down and soon fell asleep. While he was sleeping, Jael took a mallet and drove a tent peg into his temple, killing him instantly. £3000-5000

14 Shakespeare Wood: A carved white marble ďŹ gure of a maiden in medieval dress signed Shakespeare Wood, Roma, 1869 175cm.; 69ins high Provenance: Ashby Folville Manor, Leicestershire sold by Heathcote Ball & Co. 15th March 1984 lot 112. Shakespeare Wood was born in Belfast in 1827. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1868-1871. Work by him is in the Scottish National Gallery and Sydney museum. He died in Rome in 1886. ÂŁ5000-8000

15 Adolfo Cipriani: A carved white marble ďŹ gure of a shepherd girl and a sheep Italian, circa 1900 signed A.Cipriani 120cm.; 47ins high Provenance: Ashby Folville Manor, Leicestershire sold by Heathcote Ball & Co. 15th March 1984 lot 113. ÂŁ4000-6000

15


16 A rare carved white marble group of North American Indians, probably Hiawatha and Minnehaha late 19th century 127cm.; 50ins high The fictional characters of Hiawatha and Minnehaha were immortalised in “The Song of Hiawatha” an 1855 epic poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow that features Native American characters. The epic relates the adventures of an Ojibwe warrior named Hiawatha and the tragedy of his love for Minnehaha. Events in the story are set in the Pictured Rocks area on the south shore of Lake Superior. Longfellow’s poem, though based on native oral traditions surrounding the figure of Manabozho, represents an original work of American Romantic literature. The second half of the 19th century witnessed a huge expansion of settlers across the plains of America, invariably to the detriment of the native American Indians. In Europe, however, there was a great interest in the concept of “The noble savage”, resulting in often idealised images and sculptures of North American Indians. This group would almost certainly have been titled and signed on a pedestal or plinth, supporting the sculpture. £20,000-30,000

16


17 After the Antique: A carved white while figure of the Guistiani Minerva Italian, late 18th/early 19th century 104cm.; 41ins high The Parian marble Athena Giustiniani or Giustiniani Minerva is an Antonine Roman marble copy of a Greek sculpture of Pallas Athena, of the late fifth-early fourth century BCE. It was discovered in the early 17th century, reputedly in the ruins of a ten-sided nymphaeum on the Esquiline Hill. The statue receives its name from having been in the collection of Vincenzo Giustiniani in the Palazzo Giustiniani, which was luxuriously engraved and published as the Galleria Giustiniana (Rome, 1631). Towards the end of the century it had become an object of admiration especially among the British visitors: a custodian of the Giustiniani told Goethe that the restored hand was whiter than the rest of the work because the English had kissed it so often. The Minerva Giustiniani as it was called, escaped the fate of the rest of the Giustiniani collection, which had been removed in 1807 during the Napoleonic occupation to Paris, where it was to some extent broken up. In 1815 all that remained of it, in particular about 170 paintings, was purchased by Frederick William III of Prussia and removed to Berlin, where it formed a portion of the royal museum. The Minerva however had been bought by Lucien Bonaparte in 1805, and was installed in the grand hall of his Roman residence, the Palazzo Nunez. In 1817 he sold it to Pope Pius VII who was commissioning the Braccio Nuovo of the Vatican Museums. When the Braccio Nuovo was opened in 1822, the sculpture was installed as it is today. £4000-6000

18 Eugene Quinton: A Barbedienne foundry bronze figure of a hunter signed Quinton and dated 1888 and inscribed F. Barbedienne, Fondeur, Paris and bronze reduction stamp 79cm.; 31ins high Eugene Quinton was born in Rennes France. He studied under the sculptor Cavalier and exhibited portrait busts, classical reliefs and genre groups at the Salon from 1877 until his death in 1892. Ferdinand Barbedienne was one of the most famous bronze founders of the 19th century. The foundry was originally established in Paris (1838) by Ferdinand Barbedienne and Achille Collas. Collas invented a machine that mechanically reduced statues. Collas died in 1859 leaving F. Barbedienne as the sole owner, which by that time had over 300 workers. Barbedienne actively pursued contracts with many Parisian sculptors such as David D’Angers, Jean-Baptiste Clesinger, and even producing some casts for Antoine Louis Barye as well as others. He was made the President of the Reunion of Bronze Makers in 1865. £2500-4000

19 After the Antique: A pair of lead athletes late 19th century on rectangular sandstone bases 112cm.; 44ins high The originals in bronze, standing side by side as if at the beginning of a race were excavated from the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum and are now in the Naples Archaeological Museum. ÂŁ3000-5000

20 An extremely rare terracotta figure of Pan by the Compton Pottery early 20th century 72cm.; 28ins high The Compton Potters Art Guild was started by Mary Watts, the wife of G.F. Watts the Victorian allegorical painter. In 1895 work began on the Watts Mortuary Chapel. Designed by Mary Watts, it was to be built from local clay by the villagers of Compton, near Godalming, Surrey. Mr and Mrs Watts were dedicated supporters of the growing Home Arts and Industries Association, a voluntary movement launched by Earl Brownlow in 1885 to revive the dying art of handicraft among the working classes. The Pottery Art Guild made a variety of garden ornaments including pots, sundials and a few rare figurative pieces, winning medals at the Royal Botanical Society and the Home Arts’ highest award, the gold cross. Although not stamped the modelling and consistency of clay would certainly suggest a Compton attribution and this figure is illustrated in the early 20th century Potters Art Guild catalogue. (See engraving) £4000-6000

21 Maida Crowe A carved Forest of Dean stone figure 203cm.; 80ins 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. £5000-8000 21


22 A pair of rare and impressive life size carved hardstone flowering shrubs Chinese, early 20th century the flowers and buds in rose quartz with jadeite leaves with simulated bark and in lacquered wood hexagonal tubs painted with oriental scenes 221cm.; 87ins high by 175cm.; 69ins wide Carved hardstones including Jade, which is a mineral nephrite, is one of the oldest and most revered art forms in China. During the Qing dynasty from 1644-1911, the combination of an abundant supply of raw material,

craftsmanship, and keen imperial patronage produced an extraordinary array of objects. Favourite subjects for hardstone carvings were fruits and vegetables, often functioning as symbols for prosperity, longevity, good fortune, perpetuation of a family’s line, or even academic success. Decorative trees in hardstone, were popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, when both Chinese and Japanese decoration were very much in fashion, both in areas of collecting and interior decoration. The majority of hardstone trees are miniature in scale, and these life size examples are both a tour de force in terms of carving in a wide variety of hardstones and in their monumental scale which marks them as very rare examples indeed. £10,000-15,000 See also back cover.

23 A pair of rare bronze cranes Japanese, Meiji Period (1868-1912) each supporting candelabra and standing on stylised terrapins 168cm.; 66ins high Japanese Gardens have intrigued and stimulated the West since the Portuguese and Spanish first visited Japan in the mid 16th Century. The Universal Exhibition in London in 1862 followed by the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1867 saw an explosion of interest in all things Japanese The most influential writer on Japanese gardens was undoubtedly Josiah Conder, who first went to Japan in 1876, having previously worked for the great Victorian architect William Burges. In 1893 his book Landscape Gardening in Japan was published in England and swiftly became the seminal book on garden design. In 1910 the Japan-British Exhibition opened in London, held at the White City ground near Shepherds Bush and included two Japanese Gardens spread over 10,000 square yards. Granite Kasuge lanterns and bronze cranes were especially popular. The Red-crowned Crane (Grus japonensis) is the second rarest crane in the world and is known as the Tancho. In legend it is believed to live for a thousand years, revered throughout the East as a symbol of peace, good fortune, longevity and fidelity. Unusually, this pair also stand on mythical turtles and are extremely good castings with each feather individually delineated. The removable candelabrae in their mouths make them suitable for use both indoors or in a garden. £10,000-15,000

24 A rare Macauley and Wade Foundry Seasons pattern cast iron seat last quarter 19th century with diamond registration stamp 190cm.; 75ins wide The original design 238947 by Morgan, Macauley and Wade the Bath Works, Rotherham South Yorkshire was registered on 17th February 1870. (See engraving) ÂŁ4000-6000

24


25 A rare John Finch foundry cast iron seat circa 1870 167cm.; 66ins long This design, number 199811, was registered and patented at The Public Record OfďŹ ce by the John Finch Foundry, Priory Road, Dudley, and Worcestershire on 10th August 1866. (See engraving). ÂŁ2500-4000

25


26 A rare Dalkeith foundry Louis XV style cast iron seat circa 1870 with diamond registration stamp 188cm.; 74ins long The design is registered for the Dalkeith Ironworks, Dalkeith, Scotland. The company was certainly operating from circa 1810 until the end of the nineteenth century, and may well have been founded by David Mushet the famous metallurgist, born in Dalkeith in 1772 and brought up as an iron founder. An advertisement in a 1860 directory presents the company as ‘W R Mushet, Dalkeith Iron Works’. Apart from stoves and garden seats the company also offered fountains, metallic greenhouses and arbours. (See engraving). ÂŁ2500-4000 26


27 A pair of rare Val d’Osne foundry cast iron seats circa 1870 150cm.; 59ins long A similar but not identical seat is illustrated in the late 19th century Val d’Osne catalogue. Founded by J.P.Andre in 1835 and based at the Val d’Osne, in the Haute-Marne, the company took over rival firms such as Barbezat and Ducel becoming the largest and most prolific foundry of decorative and sculptural cast iron in France. The company exhibited at the Great Exhibitions of 1851 and 1862 as well as the Chicago Great Exhibition of 1893. Unlike the English Coalbrookdale Foundry which specialized in decorative cast iron seats, very few seat patterns were produced by the French foundry, even though their extensive catalogue ran to three volumes (See engraving). £2000-3000 27


28 A pair of Coalbrookdale Passion Flower pattern seats late 19th century with diamond registration stamp and pattern number 74 192cm.; 75½ins long This design was registered and patented at the Public Records Office on 8th February 1862 and is seat number 74 in the Coalbrookdale Castings catalogue of 1906. (See engraving). £10,000-15,000

29 An extremely rare original bronzed Coalbrookdale cast iron occasional table circa 1860 with later marble top 60cm.; 24ins diameter £3000-5000 30 Kelly Wearstler: A glass and brass “fractured” table modern 112cm.; 44ins diameter Kelly Wearstler, born in 1967 is an American designer. After founding her own design firm Kelly Wearstler Interior Design (or KWID) in the mid-1990s, her ensuing work within the hotel industry built her reputation in California with The New Yorker dubbing her “the presiding grande dame of West Coast interior design”. According to The New York Times, “her playful, elegantly over-the-top designs for the Avalon Beverly Hills changed the look of boutique hotels around the world,” and her designs for the Viceroy hotel chain in the early 2000s have also been noted for their influence on the design industry. Her eponymous luxury lifestyle brand incorporates her own designs as well as pieces she finds at auction houses, and she sells her own furniture, lighting, home accessories, jewellery and objets d’art collections out of the Kelly Wearstler flagship store which opened in 2011 in Los Angeles. This table is created by layering sheets of shattered glass between sheets of clear and smoked glass. £1500-2500

31 A rare Lavochkin V-760 with dummy nuclear warhead 1960 Titanium, stainless steel and aluminium 10.9 metres long This variation of the S-75 rocket series holds a dummy nuclear warhead as its payload and was used for training purposes. These rockets (with conventional warheads) were initially developed in the 1950’s as a response the America’s long range bombers, their primary function being in an anti- aircraft role. Their success lead to numerous variations and different applications, both military and scientific, and they continued to be produced under license until recently. It is a two stage rocket with the initial solid fuel booster being supplemented by a second stage liquid fuel engine that burnt for 22 seconds enabling the craft to reach altitudes of 66,000 feet with a range up to 22 miles. Variations of this rocket were famously used to shoot down Gary Powers U-2 spy plane in 1960 and were mistaken for ballistic missiles provoking the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. As icons of the Cold War these Soviet rockets played an important role in balancing the uneasy peace. £8000-12,000

32


32 A rare small ISAYEV liquid fuel engine on stand Russian, 1957 102cm.; 40ins high This liquid bi-propellant rocket motor is thought to have been developed for a high altitude surface to air missile, similar to the one used to shoot down the supposedly invulnerable U-2 spy plane piloted by Gary Powers on May 1st 1960. Very few of these engines have survived particularly in such good unused condition. Engines such as this could produce 6000 Hp and were single use, being destroyed by the high temperatures they created. This Russian built rocket motor was designed by the celebrated rocket scientist Alexei Isayev (1908-1971). Isayev rose to prominence during the Second World War designing a rocket powered plane which achieved 615m.p.h. a (un)official speed record for the time. At the end of the War he was sent to acquire German technology and in 1947 was created head of OKB-2 part of the Scientific research institute of the Ministry of Aviation. His specialty was small scale liquid fuelled rockets and his engines powered the rockets carrying the first artificial satellites, the first unmanned probes to the Moon and Venus and the world’s first manned spacecraft, the Vostok. At the same time as working on space programmes Isayev was involved in surface to air missile designs and air to sea missiles, his best known design the R-11 (Scud) is still in use today. Provenance: From the collection of the famous scientist Alexander Roudakov who was himself involved in amongst other programmes the development of the HFL. £2000-3000

The striking blue colour of Lapis Lazuli has been admired and coveted since the earliest days of civilization. The ancient Egyptians amongst others prized it. Throughout antiquity it was considered more valuable than gold and its use as jewellery or crushed and used as a pigment were signs if extreme wealth. The ancient Egyptians used it as a pigment notably in their renditions of the night sky on tomb roofs as famously seen in Tutankhamun’s tomb and inlaid on his funeral mask. By the Middle Ages it had reached Europe and was used to produce “Ultramarine” the most expensive of paint colours. Wealthy patrons would supply it to artists and prescribe exactly how much of the painting should be blue demonstrating to everyone their power and wealth Lapis Lazuli is found in a very small area of Badakhshan in Afghanistan and the vein has been continuously quarried for over 3,000 years. These pictures kindly supplied by the vendors father show the famous Sar-I Sang mine, how the Lapis is extracted by hand and the inhospitable nature of the terrain it has to be carried out of. In fact the mining techniques used today are the same as used in ancient times as are the ways of carrying it out which is why large specimens are very rare. The fact that the seam was discovered and the enormous amount of energy and time to get anything out from the area explains why it has always and will remain highly prized.

The following 56 lots were collected in the Sepik river area of Papua New Guinea during the middle of the 20th Century by repute by a missionary who was stationed there both before and after the Second World War. The Sepik River is the longest in Papua New Guinea and its course traverses numerous different terrains. There are numerous isolated villages throughout its course and over 120 languages developed through time. The various tribes all venerated the crocodile and produced wood carvings, masks and canoe prows of varying forms making accurate attributions difficult. This area still remains a difficult place to access and the traditional way of life continues largely unchanged to this day.

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.

C.I.T.E.S.

Live Auctions

All the relevant lots in this sale have been carefully vetted, mindful of current C.I.T.E.S. regulations, concerning the sale of endangered species. We are happy to provide advice on any lots, to overseas buyers concerning export restrictions. However, it is ultimately the buyers responsability to satisfy themselves that the correct licenses can be obtained prior to bidding.

The auction takes place in the gallery with each lot displayed on a plasma screen as it is sold. Prospective purchasers are encouraged to attend the sale and must register their details with us beforehand. Bidding is by numbered paddle.

Condition of Lots All lots are available for inspection and Condition Reports are available on request. However, all lots are of an age and type which means that they may not be in perfect condition and should be viewed by prospective bidders; please refer to Condition 3 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers. Electrical and Mechanical Goods All electrical and mechanical goods are sold on the basis of their artistic and decorative value only, and should not be assumed to be operative. It is essential that any electrical system is checked and approved by a suitably qualified electrician, prior to use.

4. The Auction Auction speeds vary, and generally average between 50 and 120 lots per hour. The auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding at levels and in increments he considers appropriate (generally in increments of approximately 10% of the previous bid) and is entitled to place a bid or series of bids on behalf of the seller up to the reserve on the lots, without indicating he is doing so and whether or not other bids are placed. Please note Conditions 5 and 6 of the Conditions of Business for Buyers contain additional information on bidding. Bidding in Person To bid at auction you must register with us to obtain a bidding number.

Sale by private treaty

Collection and Storage

Summers Place Auctions shall, from time to time, be offering some lots for sale by Private Treaty in our architectural portfolio. These will usually comprise larger pieces of an architectural nature, which will require a longer period of planning and consultation than an auction can provide. Additionally if you are looking for a specific piece please let us know and we will use our worldwide network of trade and private clients to help source the most suitable item for you. 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. If you are unable to collect your purchases yourself we would be delighted to obtain shipping quotes on your behalf. If Lots have not been collected within 35 days of the auction date then storage charges will be applied at a rate of £20 per Lot per week. Buyers are reminded that liability for loss and damage transfers to the buyer from the fall of the hammer. Whilst the majority of lots will remain in their location until collected, Summers Place Auctions accept no responsibility for any damage which may occur, even in the event of Summers Place Auction staff assisting carriers during collection.

Payment Payment is due in sterling immediately after the sale and before purchases can be released. Payments in person can be made in the saleroom on the day of the auction and thereafter. Payments may also be made by post, card transactions by telephone or electronic transfer to our bank. Cash will not be accepted. Summers Place Auctions Ltd welcome the following methods of payment: Credit/Debit Card We are pleased to accept major credit cards (regrettably we are unable to accept American Express or Diners Club card payments), for which a surcharge will be made of 3% of the transaction total.

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 15th June 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 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 200-469 All sealed bids must be with us, at the latest by 4pm BST on the 14th June since the bids will be opened on the 15th June. 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 final. Winning bidders will be invoiced after the bids are opened. For further information on sealed bids and how they work see our Conditions of Business. 201

253 An unusual and rare Japanese style tea house early 20th century constructed of red pine with brick and composition stone infills and windows, beneath a lead flashed pagoda roof, the panelled interior fitted with shutters. Provenance: Cowbridge House, Near Malmesbury, Wiltshire. In the 1850s Samuel Brooke had the house formerly called Cowbridge Mill redesigned and rebuilt by the architect John Shaw with an elaborate Italianate garden. Brooke was a member of the Brooke of Brooke Bond Tea family. The estate was subsequently bought in 1899 by the grandly named Baldomero Hyacinth de Bertodano y Lopez, Marques del Moral, a partner in a firm of London solicitors, Hudson Matthews, Lopez and Coupland, and it was he who was almost certainly responsible for the construction of the teahouse. Japanese Gardens have intrigued and stimulated the West since the Portuguese and Spanish first visited Japan in the mid 16th Century. In 1639, however Japan expelled all foreigners and apart from a small amount of trade with the Dutch East India Company, Japan remained in its self imposed isolation for over 200 years until an American commodore, Matthew Perry, forced consular relations in 1854. This was swiftly followed by treaties with Britain, Russia and Holland. The opening of the Japanese ports gave rich, curious and intrepid Europeans and Americans the chance to travel. They returned home with stories, photographs and souvenirs of art styles and culture which was startlingly different from what they had seen before. The Universal Exhibition in London in 1862 followed by the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1867 saw an explosion of interest in all things Japanese. Prints by Hiroshige and others caused great excitement amongst artists and intellectuals. Claude Monet had his own copy of Hiroshige’s Wisteria Blooms over Water at Kameido amongst a collection of ukiyo-e prints, and the famous bridge over the lily pond in his garden at Giverny is unquestionably Japanese in style. The most influential writer on Japanese gardens was undoubtedly Josiah Conder, who first went to Japan in 1876, having previously worked for the great Victorian

108

architect William Burges. In 1893 his book Landscape Gardening in Japan was published in England and swiftly became the seminal book on garden design. In two volumes, copiously illustrated, it includes detailed sketches of the various forms of garden ornament including granite lanterns together with photographs of gardens in Japan. In 1910 the Japan-British Exhibition opened in London, held at the White City ground near Shepherds Bush and included two Japanese Gardens spread over 10,000 square yards. Amongst the exhibitors was The Yokohama nursery Company Ltd who displayed over 2000 plants and a collection of lanterns. Dozens of Japanese gardeners came to England for the exhibition, bringing with them plants, ornaments and buildings and many of them stayed on afterwards to create Japanese gardens including those at Tully House in County Kildare, Ireland and Tatton Park in Cheshire which after falling into decay was restored to its former glory. Other notable Japanese gardens include Compton Acres in Poole, Dorset which included a pavilion, summer house, lanterns, bronze cranes a torii arch, similar in style to the one in this sale and a waterfall tumbling into a large pool with sets of stepping stones. The whole cost the owner, T.W. Simpson some £220,000 in 1914, the equivalent of £3 million in 2000. Amongst the English retailers in the early 20th century selling Japanese garden ornament were Carters of London who offered solid granite lanterns ‘direct from Japan from 8 to 25 guineas and weighing up to one ton’. Also Liberty’s, who prided themselves on their response to new and exotic styles and markets, in their 1910 catalogue, illustrated Japanese granite lanterns on the same page as terracotta planters designed by Archibald Knox. Literature: Japanese Gardens in Britain by Amanda Herries, Shire books 2001 Garden Styles by David Joyce, Pyramid books, 1989. The above lot is being offered for sale in situ near Cirencester, Gloucestershire and can be viewed by appointment. For ease of transport, the lower portion of the teahouse comes apart with the simple removal of wooden dowels in the frame. £15,000-30,000

254 A rare painted wood and wrought iron bird cage French, 1860’s with indistinct pencil inscription on back 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 Mourmelon-le-Grand, near Châlons-en-Champagne. It was created at the behest of Napoleon III and opened August 30, 1857 during the Second French Empire.

110

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. £600-1000

There has been considerable speculation as to their original usage. Joan Stevens in her book, Old Jersey Houses argues that they were unlikely to have been used as mortars or grain measures, since a number have been excavated in churchyards and that

their most likely usage was as holy water stoups or benetiers. She considers that at the earliest they are medieval in date and are usually octagonal in shape as in these examples.
