We were over the moon when we found out that the BBC wanted to film at our Canonbury Antiques showroom just north of London. And now you can view the upcoming show (Monday Sept 3rd BBC2 7.00PM) for yourself. Get your own national TV tour of our furniture and antiques showroom.
The show features Richard Wilson and Annette Crosbie as they trawl the UK looking for antiques to take to auction. So what better place to start than at the large Canonbury Antiques warehouse just 25 minutes north of London.

We were very excited to host the celebrities and TV crew a few months back and can’t wait to tune in on Monday. Video to follow…

You are viewing a spectacular art deco bronze sculpture of a lady and two borzoi dogs. The piece is signed Poertzel on the base. Poertzel was born at Scheibe on 24th October 1876, he became one of the most prominent art deco sculptors and this, the ‘Aristocrats’ is one of his most famous works. This would be a later casting from the original with some age.

The scene somehow embodies the 1920s style aesthetic as the tall, elegant women with a Native American look takes the two borzoi hounds for a walk. The symmetry is wonderful as the sleek dogs somehow echo the lithe women, her dress fanning. The piece has been cast from different coloured bronze to dazzling affect and the patina is wonderful.

We’ve taken various close up photos so we can show you the quality of the casting – in particular on parts like her hands, face, the dogs paws and coat. Amazing. Forget cheap Asian copies this is the real deal.

She stands on the marble base which has been cut from various different coloured stones with a tiered affect. The marble is smooth and has been polished so is offered chip and flake free. This has a museum like quality to it. It is very heavy. Please also note this is based in the US where we will ship from so quotes will be from there. We bought this from a dealer in Les Halles Paris whilst on a recent French buying trip.

It’s an important work and could be yours so get your bids in early as she won’t be hanging around for long
