Thursday 26th June 2008- Simon Chorley, Prinknash Abbey Park, Gloucestershire GL4 8EX
The forthcoming summer blockbuster sale is full of interesting collections and is sure to generate a lot of interest from a variety of buyers and collectors.

The fine furniture section includes an Irish bench with good provenance (Lot 665). The early 19th Century mahogany hall seat is enriched with carved detail including the crest, a robin, of the Rochfort family who built their mansion at Clogrennan in County Carlow in the first decade of the 19th century.
Another stunning Irish piece is a console table (Lot 666) with central mask and heavily carved legs on hoof feet. Decorated in gilt with a later marble top, the piece is classic 18th Century furniture at it’s best.
Desk ClockCollectors of unusual decorative items will have plenty to choose from. In the late 18th and 19th Century young men on the grand tour picked up objects and artworks to bring home as upmarket souveniers. One popular item was a micromosaic, which are intricate works of art created by Italian craftsmen and often depicted Roman buildings. Lot 468 is a micromosaic depicting the ruins of the Roman forum and Lot 469 is more decorative showing two peacocks perched on a branch.
There is a good selection of jewellery and fine clocks and with Wimbledon about to start , tennis enthusiasts will be interested in Lot 298, a silver trophy cup presented to W P Haviland, the winner of the annual handicap for members of the All England Lawn Tennis Club in 1912.
