A very rare chance to buy KPM porcelain. Three fabulous plaques after Old Masters, including this splendidly evocative work by K. Koch for the renowned Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Co. Three exceptional examples were discovered by one of our valuers and consigned for sale with our advice to a major London sale. We always try to place items in auctions where they have the best opportunity to reach a wide audience and with a little luck exceed expectations. On this occasion the 'Gentleman's Library Sale' offered an eclectic range of high quality objects. These plaques were often collected as a memento on 'The Grand Tour', an 18th century Gentleman's tour of Europe widely revived in the 19th century.

A load of BULL !

Do you fancy a rare chance to buy a genuine Stubbs for under £1000? This fabulous print of the Lincolnshire Ox is one of a collection of 18th and 19th century prints and watercolours of cows to be sold at Bonhams 'Gentleman's Library Sale' in February this year. Covington discovered this rare group and advised the client on the sale. Most of the works were listed in the seminal catalogue of such pictures (The Rothamstead Collection, by D.H. Boalch).
