Sale Information

A fascinating and diverse array of items are coming up for sale in the first of the quarterly Costume, Fashion and Textiles Sales of 2019, with everything from 17th century embroideries to Victorian quilts, 1920s dresses and modern designer handbags.

Examples of 17th century needlework are amongst the oldest items in the sale; dating from circa 1680 is a small needlework embroidery depicting a king and queen (estimate: £400-600 plus buyer’s premium). Worked in coloured thread on an ivory silk ground with applied sequins, the royal couple are surrounded by creatures, including a rabbit, squirrel, lion and tulips. There are also two 17th century silk stumpwork pictures, a type of three-dimensional raised embroidery. The first, estimated at £500-800 (plus b.p.), depicts the Five Senses in the guise of five ladies, surrounded by motifs including lions, birds, butterflies, silk and swans. The second depicts King Charles II and his wife Catherine in a cartouche of woven metallic threads, topped with the initials M and H, and surmounting a leopard chasing a stag (estimate: £600-800 plus buyer's premium).
