7th November 2022
Our 5 November auction of Fine Art, Silver & Jewellery was a huge success, including jewellery selling for excellent prices at auction.
The star of the show was a gold and diamond ring with a weight of 4.17cts which was met with strong bidding from across the world with many internet bidders, excellent interest in the room and five telephone bidders. After fierce bidding, the ring sold to an Israeli buyer for a staggering £46,000.
Notable prices were achieved for other pieces of jewellery including a further 18ct gold and diamond seven stone half-eternity ring and a pair of 18ct gold and diamond solitaire stud earrings, which achieved £1,600 and £1,100 respectively. Many pieces sold for prices in excess of £1,000.
An excellent entry of watches and clocks had been received and there was strong interest for the array of watches on show. A Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 18ct gold ladies wristwatch achieved £4,600 whilst a further vintage gentleman’s Rolex Oyster date precision manual wind wristwatch made £1,400. A charming Victorian 18ct gold cased open face pocket watch sold for £1,150.
Once again, silver pieces were wanted with a late 19th century French silver canteen of cutlery realising £2,800 and a very interesting 19th century Russian silver gilt trompe l’oeil basket retailed by Tiffany & Co selling for £1,800.
We were delighted to see strong interest for collectable items with a 19th/20th century Chinese Imperial silk dragon robe achieved a notable price of £2,600 being sold to a buyer from Chicago. A Bible, imprinted in London by Robert Baker in 1603, realised £850. Quality ceramic pieces continued to attract interest with a Zsolnay Pecs Art Nouveau pottery green glazed vase making £1,100 and a further Art Nouveau blue glazed ewer realising £740.
