    A simple and elegant bolection fireplace carved from a dove grey limestone. The polished and undulating surface reveals the subtle veining and mottling, which would be just as well suited to a contemporary interior as a period one. English, c.1930.

    Provenance: Removed from a property on Eaton Square, London.

    The Queen Anne style of the late 17th century saw the emergence of the simple bolection fireplace, often situated within a panelled room. It was far more simple in design that what had preceded it, and it was this striking simplicity that secured its enduring popularity.

    A rare and monumental cast iron Coalbrookdale antique fire grate identical to fire grate SNo 14374. The elaborately scrolled backplate featues a Bagot Goat jumping a fence. The substantial basket, with a strapwork apron centred by a lion mask, is supported by a pair of large and powerful panther head standards.

    Provenance: The registration mark 65 The Coalbrookdale Company registered September 6th 1841 number 814 can clearly be seen on the back.
    English, early to mid 19th century.

    Notes: The Bagot goat is believed to be Britain's oldest breed of goat and has lived semi-wild at Blithfield Hall in Staffordshire for over six hundred years.The Coalbrookdale Company, a foundry in Shropshire established in 1709, is probably most famous for building the world's first cast iron bridge erected and opened at Ironbridge in 1780, but it was also noted for its decorative ironwork an example of which is a set of gates opening into London's Hyde Park. The blast furnaces were closed down around 1820 but the foundries remained in use.

    Please note that the back plate was once broken the damage can be seen under the goat. It has been strapped on the back, so the grate is still functional.

    A very fine mahogany longcase clock, with an eight day movement by John Wyld of Nottingham. The fine silver dial is centred by a painted scene of a wooded landscape and this frames a date aperture. The lunette above is adorned with not only a painted moondial, but with opposing hemispheres. The dial is framed by very fine brass cherub spandrels, and mounted with three pierced hands.
    The hood of the clock has a swan necked pediment with trompe l'oeil marquetry and a brass finial, which is echoes in the pair of fluted corinthian columns with brass capitals.

    Inside the figured case is a four pillar movement which will be fully serviced on purchase.

    Notes on the maker: John Wyld was an important and very competent maker who was born in Codnor, Derbyshire in 1710, son of another John Wyld (1678-1760) by Rebecca, sister of the notable Codnor clockmaker James Woolley (1695-1785), to whom Wyld was apprenticed. He set up at Codnor around 1732 and also rented a workshop in Chapel Bar in Nottingham from a Mr. Lupton shortly afterwards. He married in 1740 and died in 1773 leaving John, his successor at Nottingham, Joseph and three daughters.

    A lovely pair of Booth’s Silicone China Scale Blue table lamps. Hand painted in the manner of 18th century Worcester, these are decorated with a profusion of gilt, on a cobalt blue fishscale ground. The cartouches are painted with exotic birds - presumably pheasants - and exquisite flowers. Simple Empire style lamp shades would suit these lamps very well.
    English, circa 1900.

    Research: Booths' most highly prized pattern is Scale Blue, an early C20th copy of the famous Worcester blue glaze featuring vignettes with exquisitely hand-painted birds and flowers. Now extremely hard to come by, it is much sought after by Booths connoisseurs.

    A late 18th century Statuary and Brocatelle marble chimneypiece, inlaid with a Greek key design on the frieze. The finely carved tablet depicts a goddess, perhaps Persephone, holding a cornucopia brimming with fruit, including a pineapple; something of a luxury in 18th century Britain. Beside her, a putto holds aloft an ear of wheat as he rides a lion pulling the goddess' chariot. In the distance, a small temple sits atop a hill, very much like the temple follies seen in 18th century parkland. Flanking the frieze are two elegantly carved endblocks, depicting a putto holding torches - another symbol of Persephone. These are supported by gently tapered jambs, inlaid with flutes of brocatelle marble and terminating in plain footblocks.
