Forgotten drawing set sells for £26,000 

£2,200 £3,100 £26,000 £7,400 £1,240 

A silver drawing set discovered in the drawer of a Bristol home has sold at Clevedon Salerooms for £26,000.  The owner had not noticed the significance of the name on the case, which showed it had belonged  to  John Wood, the famous 18th Century Bath architect responsible for the Royal Crescent and The Circus.  John Wood has become known as the architect whose influence formed the entire character of the city.

The Vendor’s adult son who attended the sale with his mother confessed to regularly playing with the set as a child, but fortunately it had survived over 250 years largely intact. 

The silver drawing set measured just 13cm high and dates from about 1745.  It was made by Thomas Heath of London and comprises a silver rule, an ivory rule, an ivory sector rule and six instruments.  The silver fish-skin covered case bears both the engraved Coat of Arms of John Wood and his name in script. 

Offered at Clevedon Salerooms Quarterly Specialist Sale on the 10th March with a pre-sale estimate of £4,000 - £6,000 the set found a buyer willing to part with £26,000 for the privilege.  Clevedon Salerooms are already accepting entries for their next Quarterly Specialist Sale on the 2nd June, and they will be holding the regular Antiques, Interiors, Collectables and Jewellery Sales each fortnight.
