Music lovers take note – this rare canterbury was
used by music conductors in the mid 19th century.
Books and batons were stored in the lower section,
while sheet music was rested on the top during
performances. We love the box wood and rosewood
inlay, and beautifully hand-carved handles. Practical
and perfectly crafted.

This fabulous French piece is by Dimitri
Chiparus, a sculptor whose work embodies
the popular art deco style of this period. It’s
in silvered bronze with a black marble base,
which is signed. Work by Chiparus is hard
to find and extremely collectable in Europe.
Make a statement with this elegant necklace. It’s of
exceptional quality, made from 9ct gold and set with
natural pearls and turquoise. The striking curved design is
typical of the art nouveau period from which it originates.
BOY IN BRONZE
Create an impact in any room of your
home with this fine Japanese Meiji
period bronze and parcel gilt figure. It
shows a boy holding his umbrella and
his pet turtle. The French portor marble
plinth on which it stands was added
later. This piece was made by the Miyao
Company, which is particularly well
known for its partially gilded bronzes.
