YOUNG LADY WITH DOG

Signed and Dated 1938

A pre-WWII portrait of a lady seated in period clothing with a small dog.  The painting is signed, but the name of the artist is hard to read.  The painter obviously had formal training, as the proportions and composition are well thought out.  It appears to have been created over several sittings, with many layers of paint present.  It’s a vibrant painting in both colour and subject. The plaster copper leaf frame is complimentary to several details within the painting.  The frame has a few small repairs to the plaster, which are blended in rather well and only noticeable with a close inspection. The frame measures 24″x31″.

I was told it was painted in Massachusetts.  The subject in the painting is holding a cigarette, but be assured the painting itself has no offensive smells.

435.- SOLD
I have detailed photos.  If you would like to see more photos or have a question, please feel free to ask.

Notre Dame, Paris, circa 1930
  By Guy De Neyrac
The painting is of Notre Dame Cathedral, with a morning street scene in the foreground.  It appears to be painted just after a morning rain, as the clouds began to disperse, with a glimpse of sunlight. The artist focused his attention to the reflectiveness of wet pavement, using broad washes and loose pen outlining of the architectural elements.  It’s a restful scene of a usually busy avenue and Notre Dame.  There are a few loosely painted cars and a couple horsemen at the controls of a carriage.  The playful pen outlining is a trademark of Neyrac’s style.

The condition of the watercolour is excellent.  The title of the painting is seen on the bottom left and is signed prominently on the bottom right.  The watercolour is tastefully framed in a high quality limed wood frame, linen border and anti-glare glass.  The frame, glass and backing appear to be more recent than the 1930s.  The dimensions of the frame are approximately 25″x30.5″.
SOLD
Many of Guy De Neyrac’s paintings go up for auction at Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Bonhams.

This portable gramophone manufactured in England, is a rare front-crank early HMV101 model. It dates to 1925 and has been lovingly cared for all these years.  For it’s age, it shows only minimal wear and works perfectly. It has been throughly cleaned and the motor/gearing has been serviced. The original interior mahogany wood, felted turntable pad and nickel-plated fittings are all in fantastic original condition. Everything works as it should.

The exterior Rexine leather cloth covering is in great condition, considering it’s an 86 year old gramophone. There are the odd scuffs, scratches and bubbles.  The fabric has been treated with a nice wax to condition and preserve the black material. The carrying handle was replaced with an appropriate reproduction leather one, as the old one’s leather had perished. All the exterior nickel-plated fittings were taken off and polished. All the accessories are present.  The soundbox arm has what would appear to be a dent, but after close inspection, it was manufactured with a flat spot near the rear in order to clear the top cover when closed.

It’s a remarkable piece of early 20th century entertainment history, which includes four 78 records to enjoy.  Again this is a rare HMV 101 model, with the windup crank located on the front.  Shortly after this gramophone was introduced, the hand crank was relocated to the side and the hoppers(needle holders) were also moved to the outside corner of the case.

A truly functional collectable, ready to be taken on a summer picnic or used throughout the house.  Below you will find a video of the gramophone in action and many photographs.

Just added a set of nine additional 78 records, held in a Radio Corporation of America case, made of Rexine leather cloth and cardboard. Dated 1918. There are two Harry James records, one Perry Como, one Les Brown, one Alvino Rey, two Glen Miller, one Benny Goodman and a combo of Pinetop Smith & Artie Matthews.

Decorative items sold as a lot, comprising of three Victorian Irons and a pair of vintage oak Shoe Trees. These items can be used as bookends or decoration on a table or shelf. The antique iron with “asbestos” stamped on it, contains no asbestos. It must have once had an asbestos fabric pad on the ironing side. All simple household items, but would make a great decorative statement.
