Juke boxes became a statement of popular culture from the 1940’s when in the United States almost three quarters of records produced were played in them. In the 1950’s Nack, Schulze & Menke set up the NSM company to produce models in the American style to sell in Europe. They rapidly became very successful & are still producing models to this day. The example on offer is the NSM Prestige E 160 dating from 1977. The cabinet stands 53” high & 41” wide & is well stocked with 45 rpm vinyl discs of the time. Representing hours of fun for a “man cave” or similar bids of £500/700 are anticipated.

Books illustrated by the illustrious artist Arthur Rackham have long been in high demand. Undine by De La Motte Fouque was adapted by W.L. Courtenay & published in London in 1909 by William Heinemann. It contains 11 illustrations by Rackham & is in good order for its age, asking £160/200.

The artist & stage designer W. Stanley Moore was born in London in 1914. He was eminent for his designs in the glitzy post war period in the West End, when the likes of “Binkie” Beaumont were putting on many lavish productions. He painted widely across Europe with a distinctive style of ink & watercolour, exhibiting regularly at The Mall Galleries in London. He gifted two of his French landscapes as a wedding present to Princess Margaret & Lord Snowden. A substantial watercolour featuring a French provincial church viewed through a barn like structure measures 31” x 21” & is reasonably priced at £100/150.

For collectors of fine Scottish whisky is a bottle of The Macallan single malt, complete with original box. It was distilled in 1972 & bottled in 1990 & could see interest in the region of £1500/1800.
