Royal Worcester was established in 1751 and it is one England’s oldest remaining porcelain brands still in existence, although production no longer takes place in Worcester. These two similar green-ground and gilt urns and cover signed by W.A. Hawkins date from 1907. They are decorated with still life panels featuring an abundance of flowers and fruits which perfectly complement the grand proportions, colouring and design of the urns. Lot 179 | Interiors: To include the selected contents of a Normandy Manoir | 12 December The sale will be on view from Sunday | 9 December, 10am-2pm #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #interiors #interiordesign #royalworcester #englishceramics #porcelain #countryhome #countryliving #auction

Lot 64| A George III mahogany drum library table, it bears six conventional drawers interspersed with six opening by a revolving action. Mahogany was widely used in the 18th century for cabinets and tables as it famously possesses a straight, fine and even grain and good workability. Over time its reddish-brown colour darkens and when polished displays a reddish sheen as seen in this example up for sale on 21 November in Fine Furniture, Carpets, Ceramics and Works of Art. The sale goes on view from Friday | 12-4pm#dreweatts #donningtonpriory #finefurniture #interiors #interiordesign #antiquefurniture #mahogany #fineauction #countryliving #countrylife

This Venetian painted and parcel gilt serpentine commode dates from 1760 and will appear in our Fine Furniture, Carpets, Ceramics and Works of Art auction on the 21 November. It is decorated with flowers and birds in cartouche shaped reserves within a crimson lacquer field. It sits on cabriole shaped legs terminating in stylised hoof feet. The vogue for Italian painted furniture was at its height at this time, and the popularity of Venice as a key location on the Grand Tour only increased its fashionability. #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #finefurniture #antique #interiors #interiordesign #countryliving #italianfurniture #fineauction #italianantiquefurniture #venetianantiques

Tomorrow we have In Search of the Aesthetic: Two International Private Collections. The auction starts at 10.30am, with viewing from 8.30am. Pictured here is lot 174, a modern Herend porcelain ‘Market Garden’ pattern part dinner service.The ‘Market Garden’ pattern was first produced by the firm of Herend in the 1850s, and it provided the master painters of the Hungarian porcelain factory with a fruitful ground (literally and figuratively) to hone their skill. To this day, Herend porcelain remains among the finest one can buy and it is a firm market favourite. #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #collections #auction #interiors #ceramics #porcelain #interiordesign #countryhome #countryliving

Our Fine Furniture, Carpets and Works of Art sale goes on view from Friday | 12pm-4pm | Donnington Priory This George III rent table, circa 1790, is so named as its original function was as a repository for rent moneys and papers relating to the landlord’s estate.
