The best from the East...

13th April 2018

Lawrences auction of ceramics, glass and Oriental items in April and bidding was brisk throughout.

An early highlight was a Delft barber’s bowl from 1758, probably made in London but with Chinoiserie decoration and with the appealing addition of the name `James Innard`. It is rare to find such items with a name and a date and this barber’s bowl was bought for a whisker over £7800.

A Sevres cabaret service from c.1793 - comprising tray, teapot, sucrier, and two cups and saucers – made £8290. Treasures from the East dominated the rest of the day’s top prices: a Junyao bowl with a subtle blue-grey glaze made £4750; a 12cm diameter yellow bowl (Qianlong) made £5600; another similar but with green decoration of birds amongst peach branches flew to £7070; and a blue and white vase, probably Kangxi, made £8290. A sumptuous Chinese embroidered silk gown, a detail of which adorned the catalogue’s cover, made £5000 and the sale’s top price was paid for a hardwood and marble mounted circular centre table that was bid to £17690.
