The Victorians were great enthusiasts for home entertainments and so revelled in advances in equipment for the purpose. Charles John Rowsell patented his design for a graphoscope in 1864, a device which magnified images such as postcards and by the 1880’s they were found in many European parlours. The Rowsell model has an attractive fretwork panel to hold the image in place on a sliding base. It is fitted with a 4 ¾” magnifying lens with a 12” focal length. With space saving in mind it folds flat into its box when not in use. In good original condition bids of £100/130 are expected.
The Jetex Company from Totton in Hampshire were known for their solid fuel rocket motors used to propel model aircraft & cars. Their original motors came to the market in 1947 and by the early 1950’s they were producing various model cars & planes. From this period are a pair of their “Jet Propelled Racing Cars” with their distinctive bright yellow original boxes. In used but reasonable condition they are estimated at £60/80.
With the Christmas market in mind several lots on offer could make interesting gifts. A heavy cut glass biscuit jar with silver mounts, lid & handle hallmarked for George Wish Ltd of Sheffield in 1931 would also be effective as a sweet jar. It is 6” in diameter and is priced at £40/50. Amongst several silver photo frames is a 1982 version by John Bull Ltd of London. Its embossed decoration harks back to the Art Nouveau era & depicts a classically robed lady picking apples. At 6 ¼” high it seeks bids of £50/60.
For the many collectors of dog figures, three come to mind, each asking £20/25. A Beswick Yorkshire terrier by Warren Platt is modelled seated with a raised paw, as is a Doulton terrier by Martin Alcock, with the title “Give me a Home”. Another classic Beswick model is the Champion Irish setter “Sugar of Wendover” by Arthur Gredington.
A 3 storey dolls house with elaborately fitted interior depicting the affluent lifestyle of around 1900 even has a games room with a snooker table. It stands 36” high by 30” wide, is wired for electricity and is offered complete with all its furnishings for £200/250.
Amongst the foremost items of ceramic memorabilia from the First World War were a set of 11 toby jugs modelled as political and military leaders of the time. They were designed by Sir Francis Carruthers Gould for the Wilkinson factory between 1915 and 1920. They were sold by Soane & Smith in London and as they were not retailed in large numbers are very sought after. Marshall Ferdinand Foch is depicted seated in pale blue military uniform holding a glass of champagne, taken from a bottle labelled “Au Diable Le Kaiser”. It stands 11 ¾” high and with one minor chip has a guide of £80/100.
