Condition Report

Re-lined several decades ago. Evidence of cracks (?) or a tear prior to re-lining, a stretcher mark along the lower edge which has been touched in. Some scuffing and scratching but nothing serious - see images to best show the condition - images 14-34 are taken with a flash. The image showing the picture hanging on a wall beside a longcase clock to show the scale. The last 8 images are taken with a UV torch shining across the picture.
Provenace: in the same local family ownership since at the least the early 1950s, but most likely longer than that date.

It has been suggested that this portrait depicts Batholomew Beale, the son of Mary Beale. See the Tate Collection.

Absentee Bidding

For clients unable or not wishing to attend our sale we are happy to accept absentee bids. Absentee bids can either be left in person with our office team, phoned or emailed to us. We simply require lot numbers and descriptions and the maximum bid which you wish to leave. Absentee bids are then transferred to our auction pages and the auctioneer will bid on your behalf. If the lot can be purchased at a lower price than your maximum bid our auctioneers will always endeavour to work in your interest to purchase the lot for you as cheaply as other bids will allow. If the same bid is left by two people on a lot we will precedence to the bidder who leaves the bid first.

We ask that condition report requests are submitted at least 24 hours prior to the sale.
