Success from the West to East...

6th July 2018

Successes in auction of Decorative Arts on July 5th included work produced as far apart as Yorkshire, Cornwall - and the Far East.

A fine collection of distinctive Cornish `Troika` pottery sold well and totalled £5970. One of the highest prices was the £570 paid for a trio of cube vases. From Yorkshire, an oak refectory table and eight chairs by Robert `Mouseman` Thompson of Kilburn in Yorkshire met with keen bidding and totalled £8050. A bottle-shaped stoneware ewer, decorated with grotesque fish, by the Martin Brothers of Southall dated from 1888 and made £1830. 

A pair of Bohemian glass goblets and covers of an amber hue made £1340 but most of the other top prices were for items of Asian origin: a Chinese export blue and white service of over 60 pieces made £2560; a Chinese scroll painting showing a cat and two kittens (possibly early 17th Century) made £3660; and a Chinese bronze ruyi sceptre made £4270. However, the star of the day was a Japanese Kakiemon School scroll painting, ascribed to Kawanabe Kyosai, and depicting cats in a landscape amongst flowers foliage and birds. Measuring 35 x 240cm (14 x 94 ins), this made £29200.
