Golding Young’s latest sale in Lincoln proved to be a roaring success. The two day sale of over 1200 lots provided a number of highlights, with the highest price achieved for a porcelain bowl made by studio potter Edmund de Waal (1964). Designed in the oriental style with a very light Celadon glaze, the item achieved £3,200 under the hammer.
Other notable prices were achieved for pieces of silver and jewellery, with an associated set of 19thC silver kings pattern cutlery making £1,900, a silver inkstand £750, and an oriental tea set £1,050. In the jewellery section the highest price was achieved for a 19thC gilt metal bracelet, inset with an exquisitely carved Italian shell cameo. This piece consigned by the executors of Anthony (Tony) Head drew considerable interest from this country and Italy, and was finally sold for £1,500 after a fierce battle between a telephone bidder and the internet.
Other notable prices were £750 for an elbow chair in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster, £420 for a 19thC continental silhouette painting, an album of 19thC travel photographs showing scenes around Singapore, Malta, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong and China, which sold for £400.
