SA art, collectables and jewellery will go under the hammer tomorrow from 10am at 65 Thomson St, Colbyn, Pretoria.
The first session will feature rare Cape silver pieces, with the highlight a snuffbox made by the renowned Cape silversmith Johannes Combrink.
Also up for grabs are Georgian Old English table silver; a Victorian silver-mount fish-eater set by Mappin, Webb & Co, presentation trophies and sterling silver pillboxes retailed by Ari D Norman.
One lot of particular interest is an American three-piece sterling silver repoussé Rose pattern tea set by Samuel Kirk & Son of Baltimore.
Royal Copenhagen hand-painted Botanical Flora Danica rack plates, a scarce Wilkinson Clarice Cliff Original Bizarre Pyramids 6-piece sandwich set and two Farmhouse pattern wall plates are sure to pique interest.
Bidders will also be able to acquire curiosities ranging from a late 19th century Scottish ship’s starboard lantern; a compact Cameraphone gramophone turntable, Rajasthani painted miniatures; antiquarian maps and architectural reference books by the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright.
The furniture follow with a Dollif Rollifson Georgian oakwood longcase clock, a Victorian pale mahogany library secretairé bookcase; a pair of Napoleon III-style figural lamps and a Gaudez bronze of Actéon.
Highlights of the Cape and Transvaal furniture include an Anglo-Cape yellow wood Coniston House linen press.
