Iain Michael Brunt is delighted to be able to show this work from
July 2016 in Berkeley Square, London: The Lost Fragment (a
prosthetic fallacy) by Based Upon.
Based Upon's The Lost Fragment (a prosthetic fallacy) is over 3 meters
in length, comprising 5 tons of granite and bronze. The work is Based
Upon's second public sculpture, following the unveiling of the 10 metre
high A Grain of Rice in Hong Kong last year.
The Lost Fragment (a prosthetic fallacy) will preview at Masterpiece
London (30th June – 6th July) before showing in Berkeley Square for the
remainder of 2016.
A Rare & Unusual Find
Picking our way around a closing down sale we came across in a very dusty dark corner a late 19th century bronze model of the Warwick vase by H Luppens & Cie, made probably around 1890. Sadly it has lost its original plinth but that certainly does not detract from its classical lines. The urn form body is flanked to each side by an intertwined handle and is decorated in relief with grape vines, classical busts and lion pelmets. There is an oval pastille to one side which reads H Luppens & Cie / Bruzelles / bronze d'art. The urn measures 23cms in height. For sale by one of our sellers

Made In Occupied Japan
MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN AICHI TOKEI DENKI CLOCK
This vintage wall clock is particularly unique as it is stamped 'Made in Occupied Japan', the term used for the time period from the end of World War II in 1945 through to April 25, 1952. It was during this time that the Allies 'occupied' Japan and it was a requirement that products for export had this stamp. Because of this specific and relatively brief dating, items with this mark are rare & very collectible. For many collectors the social history attached to this further adds to the appeal.
Aichi Tokei Denki was founded in July 1892 in Nagoya Japan. Today the company still exists but specialises in water & gas meters.
A Sad Note
A sad note from one of our long standing sellers Tony Hopkins.
After six enjoyable years in the antiques business I have decided it is time to retire. The shop
