August 2012 Specialist Sale

  

Recalcitrant Child sells for £9,200

 

In the same family for a number of generations a fine oil painting by Italian artist Luigi da Rios (1844-1892) depicting a young child in a doorway remonstrating with her mother was always going to attract interest from bidders.  Measuring 41cm x 53cm phone bidders from the UK and Europe fought to secure the picture with the victor paying £9,200.  All that remains is to try and placate the child!

Melting the hopes of yet more bidders was the pair of Sevres ice cream pails almost certainly part of the Sir Thomas Lawrence commission of 1825.  In poor condition the rarity overcame the condition with the successful UK bidder paying £6,100 for the pair.

The furniture section included this somewhat tired Georgian wingback armchair that found plenty of bidders willing to restore it to its former glory.  The purchaser that parted with £2,400 for the chair now faces a hefty re-upholstery bill.
