Sale Report: Antiques & Interiors Auction @ Wolverhampton, Wednesday 12th August

Friday, 14 August, 2020

With online auctions now the ‘new normal’ and reaching an ever greater audience of bidders, we once again saw some exceptional performances in last week’s Antiques & Interiors sale at Wolverhampton Auction Rooms.

Works of art provided the first few star lots – with Lot 7, a 17thC oil on board portrait of a man from the Circle of Danial Mytons achieving an impressive £400 – despite being reduced from its original size, unframed and bearing extensive surface flaking. Later in the paintings section, Lot 17 - a rather twee oil on glass of two kittens believed to be by Bessie Bamber - also fetched £400.  Meanwhile, in the jewellery section Lot 118 – a diamond solitaire ring of approx. 1CT with a chip to one side of the stone achieved £350 and Lot 130, a miniature portrait set within an 18ct gold brooch, got bidders’ pulses racing, with the hammer falling at £290.

Other highlights included a lot 189, pair of Hallmarked silver candelabra, which sold for £300 and Lot 353, three boxes of art reference books that sold for £260. Two 1980s Honda motorbikes (Lot 599 and Lot 600) also attracted some attention – both with keys but no paperwork, they each saw the hammer fall at £650.

20th Century furniture once again proved its enduring appeal, with Lot 666, a quality two-piece oak bedroom set of wardrobe and chest of draws selling for £500, before Lot 730, an extending Ercol dining table - bearing slight fading and some light damage to legs caused by use - went for £650. Of more traditional style, Lot 741 - a pair of leather wing-backed Queen Anne legged Chesterfield chairs - sold for £480.
