3 October 2015

We invite you to visit the viewing days and auction of this very varied interior auction. The catalog for this auction is now available and contains 173 carefully selected objects, including silver, jewellery, glass, porcelain, pottery, clocks, sculptures, furniture and Asian items. Here are some desirable lots:

The pair of silver Marot-style candlesticks made by widow Berend Pootholt is special. Besides the fact that they are in very good condition, these 18th century candlesticks from Groningen are extremely rare. Valuation for lot 5 € 3,500 – 4,500.
For watch lovers, lot 20 will be interesting. With its moon phase, this 18K Jaeger-LeCoultre Odysseus chronograph is one of the most sought-after models. Valuation € 4,500 – 5,500.
The subsequent lot 21 is an impressive grandfather clock veneered with burr walnut. This Anglo-Amsterdam object was manufactured by the renowned firm Clarke & Dunster in the early 18th century. Valuation € 4,000 – 5,000.

Lot 43 concerns a Flemish verdure tapestry from the late 16th / early 17th century. The early representation of a mountainous landscape decorated with a castle and various animals makes it an impressive piece of decoration. Valuation € 3,000 – 4,000.
The pair of patinated and gilt bronze sculptures depicting standing women with a cornucopia date from the 19th century. The lovely putti make it a recognizable piece designed by Albert Ernest Carrier-Belleuse. Valuation for lot 52 € 4,000 – 5,000.

Among the Chinese porcelain you will find lot 73, consisting of a pair of deep blue and white dishes from the Kangxi period. Both objects, with a diameter of 35 cm, are decorated with five warriors on horseback surrounded by blossom trees. Valuation for this couple € 2,000 – 3,000.
Lot 103 is of a later date, but very colorful. This doucai trolley has a decor of Shoulao, a dignitary and various servants. Valuation for this 47.5 cm high vase € 3,000 – 4,000.

Coming from Persia is lot 141, a partly gilded and solid silver commander's staff. The heavy pear-shaped end is set with numerous cabochon-cut semi-precious stones and turquoises. The original iron mace of the cavalry can still be recognized in the form of this staff. Tsar Ivan Alekseyevich, half-brother of Peter the Great, was presented with a similar staff in Moscow on 15 March 1692 from the Persian shah, Suleiman I, made of wood with thin hammered gold and very similar to the one offered. Valuation for this museum piece € 5,000 – 6,000.
We would like to point collectors to lot 142, an andesite head of Buddha Shakyamuni from Central Java. The 9th century face is very expressive because of the serene expression with downcast eyes and elongated earlobes. Valuation for this € 20,000 – 30,000.

Of course, the above is just a selection from the entire range. We therefore invite you to the online catalog here .
