Antique & General Sale

27th - 28th Jan 2022

 

Our first sale of the year, the Antique and General auction with online bidding and telephone bidding included a good selection of Jewellery and an interesting collection of Railwayana.

 

The sale began well with several private properties offering many fine examples of period jewellery not shown to the market for generations. A Victorian yellow gold bangle set with a large cabochon garnet (Lot 40) sold for £1175. The size of the garnet really showed off the depth of the stone’s rich red colour. Another fine Victorian period piece was a yellow gold, turquoise and seed pearl set locket (Lot 43) which sold for £1140 due in part to its excellent almost untouched condition. Later in the sale a beautiful piece of Art Deco design, a platinum diamond solitaire ring set with baguette diamond to both sides (Lot 166), sold for £900. The buyer’s attraction to fine examples of period design continued in the silver lots with a rare pair of silver Arts & Crafts claret jugs (Lot 80) sold for £1560.

 

A large collection of aged and rare single malts offered a great selection for Whisky collectors and those raring to break their dry January fast. The star was a single bottle of cased limited-edition Brora 35 year old single malt bottled in 2013, Lot 65, which sold for £1800 after heated internet and telephone bidding. Followed straight away by two rare malts society bottlings by ‘The Old Malt Cask Single Malt Whisky’, the Speyside 42 Year Old, Lot 66, sold for £624 followed by a Port Ellen 27 Year Old, Lot 68, sold for £648.

 

The strong Perthshire links to Sporting and Wildlife Art was very evident during the sale with the strongest showing of the genre for some time. Both established and contemporary artists were showcased with the latter producing some bold results. A pair of oil on boards of grouse and stags on the hills by Elizabeth Halstead (Lot 505) sold for £624. Followed by several other works with the final piece, a large oil on board of a covet of grouse flying across a moor (Lot 513) sold for £780. Two detailed gouache on paper scenes of grouse by the contemporary wildlife artist Michael Demain (British b.1957), Lots 509 & 510, also sold very well exceeding £500 each. These were top auction sales results for both artist from recent years showing the strength of Sporting and Wildlife Art in the heart of Scotland.

 

The surprise lot came in the form of a small brass bowl (Lot 230) that held a secret. Its humble appearance belied its age as it was likely from the Persian Safavid Dynasty during the 14th century. It clearly drew the eyes of the Islamic Art buyers as it produced one of the strongest prices of the sale selling for £1320.
