King of Sweden takes
the reins at Clevedon
The June Quarterly Specialist Sale had a decidedly
Regal air in the form of this fine Continental parcel-gilt silver figure
of King Gustavus Adolphus II of Sweden who reigned from 1611-1632.
Gustavus ascended to the throne aged 17 and in a short space of time
earned the moniker ‘The Lion of the North’. Standing 41cm high and
weighing 87oz the successful bidder parted with £7,400 for the honour of a
permanent audience with his Majesty.
The gold coin section proved popular and already a
large consignment of gold coins is currently undergoing cataloguing for
the September Specialist Sale. A rare children’s miniature book set
published circa 1805 by John Marshall ‘The Infants Cabinet of the Cries of
London’ measuring 9cm x 6cm was purchased for £2,250. A modern
design classic, the rosewood and chrome desk by Robert Heritage for Archie
Shine, found a new home at £1,450.
