Exciting new pieces and LAPADA 2018 successes

 A striking Regency mahogany serving/console table after a design by George Smith, c1815.

Well we have enjoyed another LAPADA week with glorious weather for our morning commute on foot through Hyde Park.  With 14 invoices written and sales across the board, from furniture to paperweights, we had a very successful time and as usual met many interesting people (it is amazing how many seem to have connections to Lymington!)  Now that the Fair has finished we have left many of the smaller pieces at our gallery 93 Lower Sloane Street, and one much larger piece, the 30” terrestrial globe by W & AK Johnston of Edinburgh & London (centre middle row).

A Regency rosewood two door side cabinet with dummy books .  C1815 Gin-bari enamel cloisonné vase by Tamura.Stamped, Meiji period.

We did three photoshoots in the fortnight before LAPADA as there was so much new stock to bring to London and of course post onto the website. We have just signed up to a new site ‘Barnebys’ who featured us in their LAPADA blog and ran our banner during the whole week of the Fair.  New stock includes the revolving drum table and Regency cabinet with faux books, shown above, a pair of globes, a pair of side cabinets, a Davenport terracotta Nelson wine cooler, a nest of specimen wood tables attributed to Gillows and numerous smaller decorative items like the Tamura vase (above right).

As ever our nautical collection was popular with sales of an anchor-and-rope barometer (December 2017 Newsletter) and several Kirk and Beken gelatin photographic prints of iconic sailing and motor yachts.  There was much interest in the half-hulls, especially in ‘Cushie Doo’ (which incidentally is a Scottish word meaning wood pigeon) because of her checkered career.  She was built in 1881 for a Mr Osmand from Melbourne, Australia but was renamed ‘Fedora’ ten years later and subsequently owned by, amongst others, the Marquis of Waterford, the Duke of Montrose and Baron Newborough before being sold abroad and converted to a cargo vessel in 1914.
