An impressive 19th century Diamond Bow Brooch is to be offered in the Fine Jewellery, Watches and Silver Sale on 11th November, with an estimate of £12,000-18,000 (plus buyer’s premium). Made circa 1850, the stylised ribbon bow is set with old cut diamonds which total and approximate diamond weight of 18.5 carats.

A rare 1977 Rolex Explorer II (ref:1655) leads the fine watches in the sale. Offered with an estimate of £8,000-12,000, the watch is known by collectors at the “Steve McQueen” watch, as it was made famous by the actor in an advertising campaign for the model.

A good cross-section of antique silver in the sale includes a George III Silver Soup Tureen and Cover, made in London in 1761 by Frederick Kandler (estimate: £2,500-3,500). Also on offer is a good selection of animal-themed silver. Notable examples include a 1959 Silver Stirrup Cup by Asprey cast as a snarling fox’s mask.
