A CLOSE CALL FOR-

"Aunt Beatrice' Bundle of Books!"

 

 

 Destined for the yard sale or a charity shop, were these unwanted books amongst others inherited by a Kitchener family who were about to get rid of them following the demise of old Aunt Beatrice, an expatriate Scot and retired English teacher.

 

Amongst other similar books from old aunty Trixies collection of what they thought were 'just old Childrens bedtime storybooks,' was one of the rarest of modern classics:
'The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales' by Arthur Quiller Couch.


It was published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1909 and is a very rare 1st - Limited Edition of only a 1000 -
Replacement value- $6,000.00 US.

                     The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales

 

Cinderella. Illustrated by Arthur  Rackham

Keeping it company over the years was C.S.EVANS,'The Sleeping Beauty' together with another, Cinderella. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. This time a signed LIMITED EDITION
published in London by William Heinemann, C 1919 -

Add Another $4,000.00

It gets better....


Then, Sleeping Beauty#2- Told by C.S. Evans and illustrated by Arthur Rackham

plus US$ 2,500.00

 

 


AND then : Alice in Wonderland, Illustrated by Arthur Rackham in 1907

So who was Rackham?

 

 

The English artist Arthur Rackham born in 1867 was to become the master of book illustration of his time.

In his life he produced some of the finest images of classic fable, legend and fairy tales ever to be published.

 This superb piece was crafted in about 1800 by the British designer and sculptor Paul Storr who is heralded as one of the last of the great silversmiths in England & one of the principal Royal Silversmith of the Regency period.
This exquisite Georgian bowl, proudly bears the Coat of Arms of the owners family and is worth a kings ransom. (See Biography below)

 What a great surprise to find out that the old glass brooch that's been kicking around in the sewing drawer for years is in fact an 18 Carat, hand enamelled Art Deco piece studded with three wonderful antique cut diamonds!

A Historic Recording

 

Columbia record

 

In 1928, the Columbia Grafonola Co. Ltd. released this historic record to celebrate the opening of the 'Tyne Bridge' in Newcastle, England dedicated by the British Monarch, King George V.
It features the speech made by King George V at the opening ceremony and on the reverse, a reply by the Mayor of Gateshead.

What makes it so unique is that it’s a work of art too. Engraved on the face of the record is a picture of the bridge and the Royal & city coats of arms.

 

 

HISTORY:

The 'Tyne Bridge' was designed by architects Mott, Hay and Anderson, who some say based their design on the as yet unfinished Sydney Harbour Bridge!
It has to be said that the two bridges bear an uncannily similar design, so much so that many "Jordies" claim that it was entirely the other way around! Sydney Harbour Bridge was in fact clearly a copy of the Tyne Bridge!

The innovative structure which cost £1,200,000 to build and with a span of 531 feet, was opened on the 10th of October1928 by King George V and Queen Mary, who were the very first to use the roadway, riding 84 feet above the water in their Ascot Landau.

The scheme to build the Tyne river bridge, goes way back to 1883 but it wasn't until 1924 that the plan to build a new major river crossing finally got the go ahead.
Building contractors Dorman Long of Middlesbrough, began construction in August of 1925
and at the time, it was the largest single span bridge in the world. It remains until today, one of the most notable landmarks in the north of England.

FACT FILE

:

Georgian Silversmith:

Paul Storr:  Born 1771 London - Died March 4, 1844, London

 


Paul Storr was a master craftsman and has been called the last of the great silversmiths in England , clearly one of history's greatest ever.

 Son of Thomas Storr, a silver chaser by trade, Paul was apprenticed early, at the age of 14 (1785) to another of Britiains most highly regarded silversmiths, Andrew Fogelberg.

 In 1792 Storr entered his first signature mark in partnership with William Frisbee but within months had surpassed many of his years and registered his own hallmark.
Such was the quality and exquisiteness of his work, even as a young man, that soon after the year 1800, he began working almost exclusively, for 'Rundell Bridge and Rundell' - who were the Royal Goldsmiths in London.

He escalated rapidly up the ladder and by 1811 continuing through to 1819 he was a partner in Rundell's.


  A brand new working relationship started in 1822 with John Mortimer who was a Bond Street retailer but this was not financiallystable and there were often conflicts of minds and temperament. This partnership was maintained until 1838 when he retired as an affluent man to Tooting in South West London where he finished his days.

 A notable example of his outstanding craftsmanship and marking the level of his esteem in which he was held , is the cup made for presentation to the British Admiral Lord Nelson, to mark his victory at the Battle of the Nile in 1798.
(National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London).
Today, Paul Storrs works are some of the most sought after and valuable object d'art of their kind in the world.
