    Fine Art & Antiques – Day 1

    Active between 1781 and 1835, the New Hall porcelain factory was a cooperative between several Staffordshire earthenware makers. The factory pioneered a new two-stage firing process, a lower temperature biscuit firing followed by a high-temperature glost firing. The resulting product – known for its hybrid hard-paste – had a milky white, translucent finish with a signature gray hue. For over 50 years, the factory produced thousands of patterns that were known for their attractive yet functional forms. Eventually, New Hall followed public demand and turned to bone china production. The first day of the upcoming Fine Art & Antiques sale, presented by Elstob & Elstob, will offer over 40 lots of New Hall porcelain. The auction also features several examples of silverware and vases. A 1752 George II silver soup tureen and cover by William Cripps is particularly featured. A prominent and prolific British silversmith, Cripps specialized in the Rococo style. The available oval-shaped tureen comes with a cover and features a gadrooned rim and shell feet. The center of the tureen is engraved with armorials. Timepieces, sculptures, chandeliers, and candle stands will be available in this auction as well.

    Jewelry & Silver

    The upcoming Jewelry & Silver sale, presented by Elstob & Elstob, offers antique jewelry and signed pieces from Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels. Among the highlighted lots is a Cartier laque burgauté compact from 1925. The technique of applying pieces of seashells to lacquer originated in China during the Ming Dynasty before spreading to the Ryukyu Islands. Most of the lacquer used by Cartier Art Deco objects was likely made in on these islands. The available piece depicts a Chinese maiden and objects within an engraved and serrated border. Another key lot is a Frank Muller Endurance 24 watch. Launched in 1995, the limited edition chronograph was created to mark Muller’s partnership with McLaren, the racecar builder. Endurance 24 indicates time over 24 hours instead of the traditional 12. Silverware, silver sculptures, and antique boxes will be offered as well.

    Fine Art, Antiques & Jewellery (Internet Bidding Only)

    This April, Elstob & Elstob will present the upcoming Fine Art, Antiques & Jewellery auction. Among the highlighted lots is a tiger orchid brooch by Tiffany & Co. Paulding Farnham, Tiffany’s designer, created 24 of these orchid brooches for display at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle. The enamel brooches were highly admired and helped to win a gold medal in jewelry for the company—the first such award ever given to an American firm. The available piece from 1890 features yellow, brown, and orange enamel petals. Another key lot is an Omega Speedmaster bracelet watch from 1961. Initially intended as a sports chronograph, the second Speedmaster generation became the first watch to be worn in space and was certified by NASA for use in 1965. The auction also features an oil painting by Ernest Higgins Rigg, titled Taking A Rest. A member of the Staithes group of artists, Rigg is known for his oil landscapes, portraits, and coastal scenes.
