On offer is a watercolour attributed to him depicting various sailing vessels in a calm sea. It measures 7 ½” x 14 ½” & invites bids of £180/220.

 

Amongst several interesting firearms for sale is a pair of 19th Century Tower flintlock pistols. They have walnut stocks with steel & brass mounts. They have a swivel mounted ramrod

which meant that it could not be dropped when re-loading which was especially useful for mounted troops. They are 12 ½” long & are in good order

with just the usual wear to the stocks commensurate with use. The pair should attract bids of £400/600.

 

Popular with the retro furniture market is a blond beech Ercol dropleaf table with 4 stick back chairs. They were made in High Wycombe Buckinghamshire & their gold label

denotes them dating from 1977. As a set they are priced at £150/200.

 

Amongst a large selection of Royal Doulton china from a private collection is a flambe glazed character jug modelled as Confucius. The designer was Robert Tabbenor &

it was produced as a Ltd Edition in 1995. It is 8” high & comes complete with its Authenticity Certificate with a guide of £60/90.

For collectors of ladies accessories is an elaborate Kigu Cherie Wedding edition powder compact dating from the 1950’s. The heart shaped design is patterned with

gilt swirls applied in relief with marcasite wedding bells & cartouche with the initial “N”. In excellent order it is priced at £50/80.

With thoughts turning to garden enhancement at this time of year a large bronzed metal water feature could make an impressive statement. It is modelled in the form of a young woman pouring from a large pot to feed a thirsty ram. It carries the signature of S. Gothin, dated 1969. The overall height is 63” & bids in the region of £250/350 are anticipated.

The silversmiths Sampson Mordan & Co. are well known fortheir quirky silverware, although they first came to prominence for earlydesigns of propelling pencils. Carrying their hallmarks for Chester 1905 are acharming pair of owl menu holders with enamelled eyes standing on disc bases.They stand 1 ¼” high & have an estimate of £80/120.

Also in the silver section is a silver fish slice by Robert Wallis dated London 1842. Known for his flatware he first registered a mark at Goldsmiths Hall in 1836. It has pierced bright cut decoration with a central fish motif. It is 12” long & weighs 122 grammes & invites bids of £60/80.

The Troika pottery factory was established at Wheal Dream St. Ives in Cornwall in 1962. The name derives from the Russian for set of 3, reflecting its three founders. The ceramic artist Alison Brigden worked at the factory from 1977 until its closure in 1983. A 10” vase bearing her monogram is of shouldered bottle form with a dark turquoise ground and central disc & linear band decoration. It is priced at £95/110.

Glass epergnes were much in favour in the late 19th & early 20th Century as dining table centrepieces to hold displays of flowers or fruit. An example in shaded blue Vaseline glass has a tall central flute & 3 smaller lower flutes above a bowl shaped base, all with frilled borders. It stands a total height of 19 ¾” & asks £120/150.

With the easing of lockdown we are happy to welcome people to view in the saleroom, but will be keeping our booking system with timed slots so that you can view in comfort without feeling crowded. On entering the saleroom we do still require face covering & fresh gloves due to the multiple handling of the lots- we would rather stick to the safest methods possible for the sake of both customers & staff alike.

We will be continuing with the timed auctions for the foreseeable future- it is impossible to predict when “normal” auctions could safely resume.

We look forward to welcoming customers old & new- as usual we have many tempting lots for you!

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.
