Pre Sale Report - Fine Art Sale Friday 20th May

1 May 2011

 

We have a very interesting Fine Art Sale coming up this month with a number of entries from two local farmhouses. In both instances, the families have been in occupation for many generations resulting in collections that represent both Georgian and Victorian years.

There is a fine and interesting entry of furniture including both oak and mahogany, all of which have escaped the process of modern restoration to remain great examples of Tring furnishings.

 

The sale will commence with an interesting sample of collectables. Items include a late Georgian tortoiseshell two compartment tea caddy, a Regency two compartment mahogany tea caddy with dual shell inlay,  as well as various boxes, metalware and treen, all of which are fresh to the market. The silver trophy cups, presented to the vendor in the 1920/30's, will be offered together with other selected silver and plate, objet d'art which have been accumulated over the years.
