Moor Park Mansion will once again play host to The Pedestal's auction of Fine Furniture & Objects. The first sale of 2017 takes place on 14 March and will make full use of Moor Park's splendid interiors to showcase Fine English and European furniture by a number of important makers and representing various key styles from across the centuries. Highlights from the sale include a splendid kingwood oyster veneered cabinet on chest attributed to Thomas Pistor (lot 27, estimate £20,000-30,000) which forms part of an identifiable group of cabinet furniture. Amongst the wide ranging objects included in the auction is a charming rare early 19th century jewel casket or table cabinet unusually in coquilla nut (lot 188, estimate £8000-12,000). The European furniture also includes an 18th century North Italian commode from the collection of Sir Roger Fray Ormrod PC, originating from the Veneto region and veneered in the highly unusual carrubo or carob wood (lot 185 - estimate £3000-5000). Other European consignments include 18th and 19th century French, Swedish and Dutch pieces. Estimates range from £500 upwards and encompass items from the 17th-20th centuries.
