***SOLD***SOLD*** Original WW1 Spelter Figure Of A WW1 British 'Tommy' In Standing Pose Holding a Long Lee Enfield Rifle & Bayonet By Ruffony. Sn 14234 - 14234
Ruffony was an Italian artist and sculptor working at the end of the 19th Century and the beginning of the 20th Century. He died in 1925. The British 'Tommy' soldier is in a standing pose with rifle in the left hand and detached bayonet in right hand. He is wearing full 1908 pattern webbing kit including a back pack and is standing on a debris strewn ground typical of the battlefield. The figure stands 27cm high and is very nicely mounted on a shaped wooden plinth with a green felt base. The plinth is 6cm high making a total height of 33cm. There is a signature on the rear of 'Ruffony'. The cap of the 'Tommy' has what looks to be a small part shaped as if it is missing, however we think this is how it was finished as under a magnifying glass there is no visible damage. This is a very imposing, dramatic and thought provoking piece. The price for this original, undamaged piece includes UK delivery. Sn 14234

Smiths Astral Brass Cased Ships Bulk Head Clock. Sn 14024 - 14024
Smiths trace their ancestry back to a craftsman named Samuel Smith who in 1851 opened a shop in Newington Causeway, London, where he made and sold watches, clocks and precision instruments.

In May 1932 the Clock manufacturing operations of English Clock and Watch Manufacturers Ltd. were acquired by S Smith & Sons (Motor Accessories) Ltd.

RARE, Victorian Or Earlier Medieval / Italian Renaissance Form Battle Shield With Ornate Decoration. Sn 13597 - 13597
The Victorian era saw a revival of interest of objects from the renaissance and ancient medieval cultures that influenced architecture, decoration, furnishings and art. This renewed awareness led to an intense affinity of arms and armour from those periods of history and production of quality authentic reproduction arms and armour. This is a fine medieval / renaissance form battle shield. Its excellent quality and form indicates that it is either a Victorian reproduction or possibly a much earlier piece. The iron shield is 23” diameter with a rope effect and riveted rim. The surface of the shield is elegantly convex and has a pyramid form 3” spike in its centre mounted on a stylised rose form boss, which in its original form would allow the carrier to strike opponent’s, allowing the shield to be used for both defence and attack. This form also provides strength to the structure and would assist deflection of striking weapons. The whole surface of the shield has beautifully etched panels in the Italian Renaissance style featuring religious, hunting, and battle iconography. The shield retains its original shape and original 4 carry strap lugs. The rear of the shield has its original leather riveted padding and a later steel wire carry handle or wall hanger cord secured to 2 of the lugs. The shield has even patina and no damage.
