25 BLYTHE ROAD – A SPECIALIST AUCTION HUB

Elkington coolers 2

The specialist auction hub 25 Blythe Road was started in 2007 by Thomas Del Mar, an antique arms, armour and militaria expert.  Joined by other ex-Sotheby specialists and one from Christie’s  they now between them run auctions in five different areas, including Indian and Islamic art, silver and ceramics, paintings, maritime and scientific works of art, and, of course, antique arms and armour.

One of the great plusses in their favour is that they will take good, interesting lots with a low value (£50 +) as well as those worth many, many tens of thousands of pounds.

Their next sale is Matthew Barton’s Decorative Works of Art Sale on November 19th (see below).  It will be followed in December by Thomas Del Mar Antiques Arms and Armour Sale on 4th December and a British and Continental Paintings Online-only Auction on the 10th December.

 

The  November 19th Decorative Works of Art Auction organised by specialist Matthew Barton has over 350 lots and includes English and Continental Ceramics, Works of Art, silver, jewellery and Objects of Vertu. Among these lots are the following:

‘Colpi di Venti’ figure by Helen Konig Scavini for Lenci, Italy, in 1936. Estimate: £5000- £7000.
