Keys Fine Art Auctioneers are no rookies – on the contrary, the auction house has been in the game for over 60 years constantly refining their selection skills and instinctive feel. This month, Keys sales will stretch over three days and take place during 24th - 26th of July.
The first day of the sale, 24th July will consist of fine ornaments and decoratives such as glassware, ceramics and porcelain items. Starting at 10.30 am, bidders will also be offered Oriental items and a fine selection of Lowestoft Porcelain.

The following day marks the second of the three and contains fine silver as well as jewellery, watches, militaria and clocks. Some of the jewellery is especially intriguing, to say the least, – how else can you describe a precious metal bracelet formed with six clusters of diamonds? With it’s organic floral design and 18.85 ct diamonds, this bracelet truly is an exquisite work.

For those looking for something special to collect (or drink!), Keys are offering a wide selection on wine and spirits. The saleroom have laid their hands on a collection of top-quality spirits such as: Clarets, Burgundies, Ports and fine Champagnes. The hundreds of cases and bottles were previously owned by a Norfolk couple who collected fine wine for years. Since the Blickling couple decided to move to London, they also decided to put their entire collection up for auction.

Among the vintage Champagnes, bidders will find Krug 1990, Dom Perignon 1996, and Cristal 1996 to just name a few.

If you are somewhat more of a rock and roller than a Champagne popper the name Ronnie Wood should catch your attention. The famous Rolling Stones guitarist isn’t only talented in music but is also a gifted artist. For Keys final day of sales, Wood has donated two special pieces to raise money for The Nook Appeal and The Norfolk Nook children’s hospice. The lot consists of a intriguing self portrait, signed in pencil and a signed book full of the musician’s art.

Be it a jewellery lover, Champagne popper or rock & rollers, Keys three-day sale offers something for everyone. Check out their entire collection at Barnebys.
