Possibly the perfect addition to a “man shed” or den comes in the form of a pair of Art Deco cinema seats. They have their original red plush upholstery and have a distinctive painted metal ray design at either end. They are believed to have come from the recently refurbished Electric Palace in Bridport, which opened as a combined Opera House & cinema in the 1920’s. Numbered 21 & 22 they are 43” wide and have a makers stamp of the letter B in a lozenge. They are priced at £70/80.
Another unusual lot is a bronze water feature with Verdigris patination It is modelled as a seated mermaid holding a conch shell aloft, from which the water flows. It is 24” high and has an estimate of £400/450.
Amongst the jewellery on offer is a 19th Century marquise shaped ring set with 21 old cut diamonds, which have a softer radiance than the modern bright cut stones. It has a 9ct rose gold mount and is in good order for its age, expecting bids in the region of £150/200.
Embossed silver dressing table wares have been popular since the mid 19th Century. The production of such pieces often used die cast moulds, for which the silversmith William Benjamin Broadway was especially known for his skills. He established the firm of Broadway & Co in Birmingham in 1900, and the 3rd & 4th generation of his family are producing silverware at the Shady Lane, Kingstanding premises to this day, using some of his original moulds. Carrying the hallmarks for 1975 is a 3 piece brush and mirror set with an intricate design of bearded masks , birds and scrolling foliage, with a reasonable guide of £40/50.
A charming Royal Doulton group modelled as a pair of penguins nestling together has the early HN number 133. They were designed by Frederick Daws, who was known for his animal figures. They were issued from 1913 to 1946 and standing 6 ¼” tall expect bids of £40/50.
A carved oak hall settle of small proportions could suit many types of property. It has 3 carved back splats, scrolling arms and turned legs with floral roundel & foliate decoration. It benefits from a recently renovated floral padded seat panel and stands 42” wide, 38” high and 16” deep. It could make an attractive addition to a home at £100/120.
