The Pedestal will soon be launching its online shopping platform, the first to be dedicated to this area of the market. It will be accessible to both trade and private vendors, who uniquely will gain access to the retail market and will offer purchasers the expertise of our highly experienced specialists.
The Pedestal’s second auction of Fine Furniture & Objects was held at Moor Park Mansion on 14 March. We were delighted to see so many clients attending the view soaking up the Mansion’s incredible interiors as well as the lots being offered for auction. The auction saw some strong prices and competition for early furniture with the front cover lot, a handsome William and Mary kingwood oyster veneered cabinet on stand attributed to the London cabinet-maker Thomas Pistor (lot 27) being contested to £34,720 (including BP). This price was matched by the charming black japanned and gilt chinoiserie decorated bureau cabinet (lot 31) battled over by both UK and international bidders. From the later periods of furniture production interest was wide ranging, with smaller 19th century pieces performing well and a variety of different styles and sizes of mirrors proving to be in demand. We are already consigning for the 21 November Moor Park auction which once again will include a broad range of items from 17th-20th centuries. Please get in touch if you are interested in consigning to this auction which will close for entries at the end of September.
