This month's selection of new stock items includes a cross-ection across our range of categories but major's on jewellery and art.
We start with art. We continue with our increase in the selection of artists’ prints we are offering. There are three this month. The first is by Julian Trevelyan RA. Trevelyan (1910-88) was a leading British artist and printmaker. After studying literature at Cambridge he moved to Paris to become an artist studying printing and etching with Stanley Hayter where he worked alongside leading artists such as Miro and Picasso. He returned to London and set up a studio in 1935. His early work was influenced by Surrealism but he later turned to a more realist style with a strong emphasis on bold shape and colour combinations. As well as producing his own paintings and etchings he also taught etching, first at the Chelsea School of Art and, from 1955-63, at the Royal College of Art. His students included David Hockney, Ron Kitaj, and Norman Ackroyd. He was hugely influential on the print and etching movement that developed in Britain in the 1950s and 60s. This work, from 1983, is a late work where he reappraises his early Surrealist approach.
We also have two prints by leading French printmaker Jean Pons. Pons (1913-2005) was a leading figure in the post-war École de Paris. He was foremost a print and lithograph maker who worked with some of the leading artists of the time including Kandinsky, de Stael and Poliakoff. As well as producing prints of their work he also produced prints of his own sold in limited editions. These two abstract pieces are from what we think is his best period from the 1950s.
Also under art are three mixed media works by Amparo Climnet. She is something of a polymath, not only an artist based in Spain, she is also a film producer and actor. These would look great either together or individually.

We also have a good new selection of jewellery to offer including several pieces from Georg Jensen.

The other piece of jewellery we have is a rarity, a ‘whale tail’ ring by Hans Hansen from 1959, size Q/19mm (adjustable). A real statement piece!
There are several new ceramic items in the listing including two pieces from Sweden by Kjell Bolinder, these have great glazes on them and are unique items. There is also a lovely porcelain vase/candleholder by Gerd Bøgelund for Royal Copenhagen from the 1960s. Our final ceramic item is a sought-after rarity from England, a Cheviot pattern bowl designed by Glyn Colledge for Denby in the 1950s. With its atomic/sputnik pattern it doesn’t get more fifties “new look” style than this.
We have one new addition to our modernist silver collection, a small 925 grade silver scent bottle with a foil opal and glass cabochon screw-in stopper. This item comes from Taxco in Mexico and dates to the 1970s.
Finally our selection of glass includes an expo bowl by Nils Landberg for Orrefors, a twisted sculptural vase by Goran Warff for Kosta and a 1980s studio vase from Flygsfors.
We now have a list of fairs we will be attending during the rest of 2021. These remain subject to change due to the pandemic so do check nearer the date before travelling. The list can be found in our news and events section in the main menu.
