This week’s Arts, Antiques & Interiors sale was very large with 1000 Lots. ITV This Morning filmed the finale to their Treasure Hunter competition for charity and Louie Spence and Jeff Brazier brought some levity to the first 30 lots of the auction.
This auction had a wide range of clocks and watches that performed extremely well. Of particular note was Lot 274, a good 19th century French gilded bronze travelling carriage clock by Dent of London, reaching £843 including buyer’s premium & VAT, proving that good items and fine quality will always win through.
Auctioneer Matthew Caddick said “Even when a market seems depressed, this sale showed that good things always sell and this week was no exception when a good selection of clocks and watches were to be sold... particularly when presented along with similar lots within the sale.”
Art specialist Tony Sullivan said of Lot 440 “...the 19th century French Rococo style ormolu clock by Japy Frères ... the ormolu was the perfect example of the finest French bronze makers art .. I really took pleasure in cataloguing it.”
