Valuers Collaborative Effort

Kalashnikovs from Kemptown, a Fornasetti screen from Seaford and Louis Vuitton from Belgravia.

This Winter sale brings together the result of a collaborative effort on behalf of all of the valuers.

The estate of a long-time client from Brighton has produced several Philippe Starck mirrors as well as two of his iconic Kalashnikov table lamps (Lots 285 & 288) and what google tells me is termed a ‘malignity’ of David Goode goblins (Lots 48+).

A Philippe Starck Gilt Metal Kalashnikov Table Lamp

Estimate: £800-1,200

The keen-eyed weekly sale valuers; Jack, Emily, Annie and Paul C. have all been sending upstairs the pick of the items that come in through the door.

Gorringe's Team

All of this was supported by the excellent team without which Gorringe’s wouldn’t function; Denise, James, Kerry, Mel & Alison on the admin, Julie in accounts,  Alex, Harry, Corey, Paul H., Paul G., Jon and Freddie; ever ready to help and setting out the salerooms to such good effect, my wife Samantha on the marketing sending you weekly emails and keeping the website on track and last but by no means least the photography team; Patrick and Summer doing a great job on the weekly sale as well as the printed catalogue.

So many thanks to our staff as well as to our customers – and here’s wishing you all a Happy Christmas and a positive 2023.

Clifford Lansberry for and on behalf of the Partners of Gorringes LLP.
