As most people begin to wind down for the summer, The Cheshire Saleroom becomes busier than ever with the saleroom packed full of interesting, fresh to the market objects. Day one begins with a supplement to May’s successful Asian Art sale, Asian Art Part II, and consists of just under 300 lots originating from China, Japan, India, Burma and the Middle East. A collection of interesting blue and white porcelain is spearheaded by lot 1, a handsome Yen Yen vase in perfect order (estimate £300-£500) but the star lot of the section is sure to be a rare pair of wig stands, Daoguang period (estimate £10,000-£15,000, illustrated above).

Then follows the usual bizarre array of collectors’ items to include a 1957 Morris Minor, the very same Minor driven by Noddy Holder in ITV’s ‘The Grimley’s’, a rare Regency horn tea caddy, the usual antique smoking and writing paraphernalia, a rhinoceros horn conductor’s baton and other interesting oddities and collectibles.

The other main specialist section is musical instruments, over 150 of which will be offered for sale. A fine selection of violins and bows includes an 18th century example with label Sanctus Seraphin Utinenfis Fecit Venetiis Anno 17, two gold mounted bows by Garner Wilson and a rare Dancing Masters Pochette bow by Betts. These instruments one can play, but the subsequent 25 lots can not be played; they include a very fine and large exhibition quality Swiss musical box (£4,000-£6,000), several smaller examples, Edison phonographs, a table top polyphon and more.

A fine section of stamps is up for sale on day two featuring over fifty lots including a Great Britain 1986-2013 presentation packs collection (£600 - £700) and a fully extensive and unique collection of State of Israel postage stamps (£18,000 - £22,000).

Also for sale is a fine collection of clocks which includes a very large 18th century Boullework mantel clock by Charles Leroy, Paris, 18th century longcase clocks and a well carved Black Forest cuckoo clock.

The sale will finish with no less than 400 lots of furniture, beginning with a superb 19th century oak extending dining table patented in 1835 by Robert Jupe and John Johnstone (£2000-£3000), appropriately known as the ‘Jupe’s’ patent table. Several Georgian dressers are for sale, early coffers, and a selection of furniture more ‘retro’ in style and date.
