19/02/2015 Chiswick Curates
On Tuesday February 24th we will be holding a sale of
20th Century and Contemporary Art & Design, starting at 12 noon.
It will be followed by the General sale.
We have two stunning pieces of glass leading the headlines in the sale.
Lot 1 is a Rene Lalique 'Ceylan' opalescent glass vase, c. 1930, etched R. Lalique France, (24cm high).
And lot 18 is a fabulous Mazegga 'Fiamme' Murano glass chandelier, circa 1960, clear with green tipped textured hand blown glass drops, on chrome frame (60cm dia).
The catalogue is online now - click here.
On Tuesday this week, we had a very busy day with toys and fashion and the BBC Flog It team filming. The star of the show - apart from Paul Martin of course - was a beautiful Steiff bear which sold for £5,040.00 (inc. 20% buyer’s premium + VAT)
We also welcomed a new specialist into the Chiswick Auctions family - Chris Vin will be heading up our Rugs department. The Rug sales will take place on the last Tuesday of every month, the next one being on Tuesday 31st March, followed by Tuesday 28th April. On those days the rugs will be the first lots in the General sale. Read more about Chris here.
Coming up, we have Medals and Militaria on 3rd March, with some really great items with wonderful stories behind them, a strong German section with visor caps, helmets, medals and equipment, and a good selection of Japanese katanas, swords and other weapons. The catalogue will be online shortly.
In the Fine sale on 10th March we have several important rediscoveries and some other significant pieces. The catalogue is online now.
There is a Jewellery sale on 17th March - a must for anyone who proposed on Valentines Day...
We accept consignments up to 3 weeks before each Specialist sale, and every week for our General sales.
