12 December 2011

On Monday 12 December, AAG will once again traditionally close the season with a large, high-quality arts and crafts auction under the name The European Interior. In this auction you will not only find a large collection of desirable objects, including engraved glasses and Delft pottery from the estate of the recently deceased Amsterdam antique dealer Henk van Vliet, clock lovers will also be well catered for. Partly under the auspices of the well-known expert Jaap Zeeman, an important collection of longcase clocks, mantel clocks, watches and the like was put together, which we are proud to present to you.
The highlight of the clock collection is a grandfather clock dating around 1685, signed Willem Bramer in Zwolle. Valuation for this extremely important timepiece in ebony veneer case: € 25,000 – 30,000.
The interest in Chinese terracotta teapots is currently very high and we are therefore pleased to be able to offer you a collection of them. We name a few:
A beautiful Yixing teapot, 9 cm high, decorated with ascending lotus flowers and Buddhist motifs is valued at € 2,000 – 3,000.
A beautiful, 16 cm high Yixing teapot, this time with peaches, characters and a stylized dragon has a value of € 8,000 – 10,000.
A Qianlong, Chine de Commande tea service part with the arms of the Swarth and van Tecklenburg families was made on the occasion of the wedding of Jacobus Swart and Anna Maria van Tecklenburg in November 1754.

We see this professor depicted en-face, seated in front of his bookcase while his left hand rests around the foot of a pewter funeral urn with an S on it. According to the inscription on the back, this S refers to the deceased wife of Wakker, a Mrs Sarissen. In original brass frame and dated 1802. Valuation € 800 – 1,200.
