November 2019 Sale Results

Results from the Saturday November Sale

Over 370 lots went under the hammer in Brown and Turner’s auction of Antiques, Fine Art and Jewellery on Saturday. The highlight was Lot 106, a Japanese Export Lacquered Work Box with a quantity of Chinese Mother of Pearl gaming counters, mostly crested and bearing the signature “vi et copia”. The hammer went down at £2,400.

The lot, probably from the Meiji period, was consigned from Edinburgh and gained interest online with 4 internet bidders and 2 telephone bidders. The buyer is UK based and paid nearly 5 times over the estimate showing the growing popularity of Japanese artefacts.

Lot 182, John Moore’s (British 19th century) “Boats at Rough Sea” oil on canvas drew a lot of interest online, on the phone and in the room. The well known 19th century British artist’s painting made £950 to a UK phone bidder.

Lot 322, a Set of William IV Scottish Mahogany Dining Chairs were sold by a local private client. The twelve chairs and one carver gained a lot of interest in the room and on the phone and were finally bought for £1,200.
