Works of Art & Sculpture

Our Works of Art department oversees sculpture, treen, metalwares, boxes, portrait miniatures and a range of other antique collectables which are revered either for their age, rarity or quality of manufacture. We typically offer around 250 works of art lots in each of our bi-monthly Fine Art sales and similar quantities in each of our regular General sales. Our Works of Art department is invariably the most diverse section in our sale catalogues; where Grand Tour micro-mosaic plaques rub shoulders with copper jelly mounds and antique aboriginal boomerangs. To accurately catalogue the vast range of objects which the department covers, our valuers pool their knowledge and where required utilise various external consultants

Significant lots in recent years include the sale of an Ancient Egyptian mummy case, which was discovered in the living room of a property on the Essex coast and catalogued with the assistance of the British Museum, it sold to an American buyer in 2014 for over £13,000. In 2017 we sold an 18th century Indian Mughal School gouache portrait of Jonathan Duncan, Governor of Bombay, the historical significance of the work carried it to £21,000.
