Chance to ‘snap’ up qual­ity cam­eras

Western Morning News (Saturday) - - Art & Antiques -

Afine se­lec­tion of Nikon cam­eras will be in­cluded in next Satur­day’s sale from a cam­era en­thu­si­ast who is mov­ing away from the area.

There is a splen­did boxed Wray of London tele­scope to­gether with lens and tri­pod, all in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion. Wray was a fas­ci­nat­ing Vic­to­rian who was ac­tive in the Royal As­tro­nom­i­cal So­ci­ety and was, by pro­fes­sion, a so­lic­i­tor.

The small Vic­to­rian cast iron bed­room fire­place in the sale fo­cuses on the her­itage which is all around us and able to be fur­ther en­joyed.

A three-mast wo­ven ship pic­ture is of an Isle of Scilly ves­sel and there is also a pen­cil sketch of Old Town church. A splen­did se­lec­tion of wa­ter­colours, mostly of lo­cal scenes, also in­cludes a fine Mediter­ranean oil.

View­ing for next Satur­day’s sale is from 9am and, as usual, there is No Buyer’s Premium.

The at­ten­dance at the last sale re­flected the in­ter­est­ing items on of­fer: with a skele­ton domed clock mak­ing £1,400, and a Bom­bay chair re­al­is­ing £610.
