“Nothing except a battle lost can be half as melancholy as a battle won”

Sir Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington


One of the highlights of the militaria section is Lot 368, a WWI Memorial Plaque awarded to Major Macclesfield Heptinstall Anderson; Major Anderson was killed in action on 29th April 1915 on a reconnaissance mission on the banks of the River Karkheh when turned upon by an Arab encampment after a distinguished military career having served in India and China. It is joined by Lot 349 and 350, a Waterloo Medal unofficially named to J. Long of the 15th Hussars and a Naval General Service Medal (1847) awarded to George Wall with erroneous St Vincent clasp; George Wall is listed as rank Able Seaman and serving on the HMS Benbow which participated in the bombardment of Acre in 1840, respectively. Lot 467, A Royal Company of Archers Queen's Bodyguard green dress uniform comprising tunic and trousers, both with gilt bullion work detail of thistles, with cased pair of epaulettes with green trim and extensive bullion work certainly adds and air of pomp and circumstance to this auctions proceedings.


 This sale has one of the largest collections of paintings, prints and etchings that Adam Partridge Auctioneers has seen in a very long time and the Northern and Contemporary section is made up of some very fine pieces of artwork. Lot 1728, by Harold Riley is a mixed media entitled 'Salford Alley Man & Pigeons' and has been valued at £20,000-£25,000. Lot 1736 by William Ralph Turner is oil on canvas, 'County Building, The Shambles, Manc 1940', which has an estimate of £3000-£5000. A Northern and Contemporary section would not be complete without featuring some of the work of Arthur Delaney. This sale contains Lot 1731 oil on board, 'Oxford Road, Manchester', est. £2,500-£3,500. Lot 1729 is a charming oil on board piece by Peter Brook which very much lives up to its title ‘Warm Inside, Cold Out’ and is expected to make £1,000-£1,500.


As usual, thanks to a large number of dedicated vendors and buyers, we have a sizeable amount of guns and firearms in our September auction. Lot 639 is a Franchi 12 bore Harrier over/under single trigger ejector shotgun which is expected to make £100-150. Lot 643 has been estimated at £200-£300 and is a Browning Medallist 12 bore over/under single selective trigger ejector shotgun which requires a Section 2 Shotgun Licence. A good pair of early 18th century walnut stocked cannon barrel pistols by Freeman of London has been valued at £500-£800 and has already attracted a large amount of interest as a result of being part of the feature advert in this month’s Antiques Trade Gazette.
