Are You Sitting Comfortably...

10th October 2019

Lawrences’ selection of Decorative Arts and Furniture on October 10th was over 90% sold. Two collections of the ever-popular Moorcroft pottery realised a total of £6600, with the top price of £1060 paid for a small (9cm) salt glazed vase decorated with fish.  A separate collection  of studio pottery included works by David Leach, Alan Caiger-Smith, Rosemary Wren and Seth Cardew. The collection totalled £10,860, with £2000 paid for a celadon glazed teapot by the celebrated ceramicist Edmund de Waal. A pair of Wedgwood `Fairyland` lustre vases designed by Daisy Makeig-Jones exceeded hopes of £1500 to make £4250 and an Arts & Crafts silver bowl, made by George Lawrence Connell in 1912, commemorated a speech made by Queen Elizabeth in 1601. This made £500. The sale was led by an interesting selection of furniture, including an Aesthetic movement table, possibly designed by Stephen Webb for Collinson and Lock that made £1060 and a sinuously elegant pair of `Model 31` armchairs by the  distinguished Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, circa 1931. Against hopes of £4000, the chairs made £6500.

“Sale on Tuesday, pay on Wednesday and parcel arrives on Thursday. Can't ask for more. I was expecting to wait quite a lot longer, as I know you have lots of requests for pack and send. Very grateful and also very impressed.”
