For serious collectors of historic silver a late Victorian presentation shield fits the bill in a number of ways. It was designed by King Edward VII when he was still Prince of Wales

& he commissioned renowned Edinburgh silversmith Thomas Smith to produce it. It marks the Princes Honorary Presidency of The Smithfield Club of Londons famous

Smithfield Livestock Market & was presented to Sir John Gilmour Bart. who had been made a Baronet by Queen Victoria in her 1897 Jubilee year. The quality of workmanship

Is very high & measuring 19 ¾” x 11 ¾” it weighs 1665 grammes in all. The guide for this spectacular piece is £4750/ 5250.

 

Also in the silver section representing the illustrious Bateman family is a William Bateman silver spirit kettle on stand of unusual pumpkin shape with acanthus details.

It carries his London hallmarks for 1822. The overall height is 13” & weighing a substantial 1515 grammes it has an estimate of £2250/2400.

 

Franz Zaver Bergman was born in Vienna Austria in 1861. He inherited a foundry business from his father & became famous for his cold painted bronze figures.

The model number 2365 of a Jay bird has a factory stamp on the underside of the tail. It is 6 ¾” high by 11” long as has a reasonable guide of £150/250.

Troika was an Art pottery in St. Ives & Newlyn in Cornwall which operated from 1962- 1983. The sculptural style of Troika pieces soon gained market recognition,

with the London stores Heals & Libertys stocking their goods. Alison Brigden was head decorator from 1981-1983 & 2 vases with her monogram are priced at

£60/100 each & are 3 /2” & 4” h.

 

The McIntosh firm in Kirkaldy Scotland was one of the foremost makers of contemporary furniture in Britain in the 1960’s & 70’s. Drawing influence from the popular

Scandinavian designers of the time simple yet elegant pieces with clean lines were to the fore. A late 1960’s teak sideboard has 2 pairs of cupboard doors

Flanking 4 drawers on raised legs. It stands 84” wide & 30” high & bids of £200/300 are anticipated.

The overall height is 63” & bids in the region of £250/350 are anticipated.

Established over 80 years ago, Okehampton Auctions has a long history and association with the town.

Traditionally held in the Market Hall in the centre of town, the Auction moved to its permanent site at Fatherford in June 2007, due to the redevelopment of the Market Hall into a cinema.

With traffic and parking in the town centre having become an increasing problem over recent years the ample parking and easy access to the edge of town auction room has been a real bonus to our customers.
Our auctions are held regularly throughout the year, with goods in all categories being taken in throughout the month by appointment.
Each auction has between 800 - 1000 lots. Outside lots, garden effects & tools are sold first, then small items including china, glass, collectables, silver, jewellery and pictures are sold followed by furniture, furnishings, household goods and miscellanea.
We are happy to give free advice and estimates to our customers and to help with setting suitable reserve prices where relevant.
Our Auctions are featured in the Western Morning News Antiques supplement on the Saturday prior to each sale.

Our commission rates are: Vendors 15% (No VAT) Apart from mixed boxed lots which have an additional charge of £1 per lot from March 4th sale 2020 onwards
                                     
                                              Buyers 15% (N0 VAT)



Transport facilities are available to both vendors and purchasers at a reasonable individually priced rate.
