Walking Sticks and European Works of Art and Clocks

20/06/2016     Chiswick Curates

This week we play host to two fantastic Specialist sales.
On Tuesday 21st June, we start with a sale of Canes and Walking Sticks , followed by European Works of Art and Clocks which will be followed by the General sale. 


The Canes and Walking Sticks sale starts at 11am. The private collection of walking sticks spanning several centuries and in a range of diverse designs, will be offered in a special two-part sale. The collection was amassed by British private collector Roy Moore, who dedicated two years to hunting down the very best examples of their kind, from Europe and the US.

The result is an eye-catching collection of more than 400 walking sticks, each individual, each with a very special element; be it an exquisite porcelain design, or one that contains an extending tape measure for measuring a horse, or one that doubles as a working flute.

If you can’t make it here in person, you can view the catalogue and bid online.

The sale will also include a collection of Renaissance and later European sculpture from the collection of Dr Charles Avery.
