The Country House Sales offer an appealing mix of traditional antiques and curiosities, good furnishing pieces and specialist collectors’ items. The sales incorporate the contents of important properties and private collections as well as individually consigned lots redolent of the English Country House. 

Included in the sale will be an extraordinary collection of Treen and Metalware, put together over many years by David and Hilary Hide. The Hides, who lived in the North of England, had a fascination for British vernacular objects and developed a deep knowledge of their subject. The extensive collection will be sold in fifty lots. Highlights of the collection include an 18th Century Treen Lignum Vitae Mortar with similar hardwood pestle (estimate: £300-500 all figures exclude buyer’s premium), a Pair of George III Carved and Turned Mahogany Candlesticks sold with a Pair of Olive Wood Brighton Bun Travelling Candlesticks (estimate: £150-250), and a group of three George III Mahogany Cats or plate stands (estimate: £100-150). Also of interest are a group of three Mid-19th Century Toleware Spice Boxes (Estimate: £80-120), and a group of Lignum Vitae Treen String Boxes from the 19th Century (estimate: £100-150).

The sale will also include rugs from the Collection of the Late Nicola Pyne. Nicola Pyne was born in 1948 in South-West London. Her early years were spent at the family house in Strawberry Hill, which backed onto the Thames.  She was academically able, attending Lady Eleanor Holles School before obtaining a BSc in Physics from Birmingham University.  She had a lifelong love of studying and also completed a degree in Biology from Birkbeck.  Nicola worked for many years with IBM before leaving to pursue a teaching career specialising in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.  She loved to travel and visited many countries in Central Asia, the Middle East and India, developing a love of different cultures and filling her house with artefacts from around the globe.  Her travels led to an interest in ethnic items including jewellery, wood carving and of course tribal rugs and related weavings. The items in this collection will be denoted throughout the catalogue with a ~ symbol.
