Entries invited for forthcoming sales
We have sold Antiquities & Sculpture at Tennants Auctioneers over the years as part of the busy sales & events calendar, and due to increased demand and popularity we will now be holding specialist sections, beginning in 2016.
Mark Jones will be researching and cataloguing the section having gained previous valuation experience at an auction house in London as head of Ceramics and Silver, where he extended his cataloguing skills to include Works of Art and Chinese objects. He has a love for Antiquities having been taught in the City of York, UK and has worked closely with the leading auction houses both in the UK and USA, and over the years has helped to discover a Roman marble head of Herakles and various other antiquities.
Mark can advise on Roman, Greek, Near Eastern, Oriental and Egyptian Art, as well as Pre-Columbian, Medieval and Renaissance Works of Art and Sculpture.
This department works in conjunction with our other specialists, in the British & Continental Ceramics & Glass department, as well as Jewellery, Garden Statuary, Coins and Militaria, advising on the early artefacts.
A recent department highlight was the sale of A Carved Stone Head, which sold for £35,000 in May 2015.
