51 COULD YOU HAVE A SMALL FORTUNE HIDDEN IN THE ATTIC? T


he results of Bearnes Hampton & Lit- tlewood’s first Fine Art auction of 2019 has given them a springboard into


the new year with a full calendar of events. Certainly the setting of a new auction house hammer price of £460,000 for the Chinese blue and white vase is an incentive to have a look in the attic to see if you have one hidden away! With the demand for Oriental ceramics still pushing the market forward, the overall demand for pictures, works of art and furniture was also in good health. The 19th century hardwood and inlaid model of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre may not have been in the best of condition with sections missing, but this did not stop internet bidders against telephone bidders raising the final hammer price to £25,000. That it had originally been from Ugbrooke House, Chud- leigh may have helped as it could have originally been brought back as a souvenir piece from Jerusalem in the early 19th century. Collectors of rare English porce- lain came out of hibernation to go nuts for two Chelsea


porcelain models

of red squirrels. Both models appeared to have been unrecorded in literature and the only other examples that are known are modelled in a seated position. The first model sold for £16,500 even with some damage and repairs, while the second with slightly less damage sold for £17,000.


Decorative furniture


seems to be the trend for 2019 as an early 19th century ebonised gilt and penwork rectangular chest sold for £4,100 and a 19th century ochre- painted simulated bamboo pot cupboard sold for £820, well over the estimate of £200-£300. The demand for jewellery contin- ues to remain strong as a diamond


solitaire ring sold for £5,100 while the Cartier 18k Tank Americaine wristwatch fetched £5,000. If you are wondering if there could be a small fortune hidden away at home why not contact Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood on 01392 413100 for a free verbal valuation. You might have something that will put a spring into your 2019!
