Set against a pale blue ground with gilt details to the handles and on circular bases, the signed pair dated from c.1900/1901 and stood at approximately 141/2in (37cm) high.
In good condition, the pair took £4900.

Another Baldwyn-decorated piece, a single lidded vase, found success. Also painted with flying swans and on a light blue ground with gilt and peach detail and with animal form handles, the 17in (43cm) high signed vase dated from c.1903 and had some damage to the lid yet still took £2400.

Jewellery sold well with the two top prices being taken by a pair of double diamond earrings of approximately 2.5ct and a platinum three-stone diamond ring. The former brought £2100 and the latter £1850.

In the furniture a mahogany table with a lift up compartment triumphed when it took £3150. Following this was a small early 19th century mahogany bowfront chest of three drawers and tapered feet with walnut and ebony stringing, which brought £2000.
