Provenance: Private European Collection. Acquired Sotheby's London, 15 October 2003, lot 47.

The ancient site of the Dome of the Rock became a mosque in Umayyad times, making it, along with the Great Mosque in Damascus, one of the earliest mosques in the Islamic world. Like the Damascus mosque, the original decoration was glass mosaic, much of which still survives in the interior. Soon after the Ottoman invasion in the sixteenth century, a major refurbishment was initiated by the Sultan, which involved bringing Persian craftsmen to clad the exterior of the building in glazed tiles, a widespread practice in Persia and Central Asia. Such is the harshness of the Jerusalem winters that the tiles had to be fixed with metal pegs as well as mortar and the sockets for these pegs are visible on these two tiles. For the location of related tiles on the exterior of the Dome of the Rock, see Said Nuseibeh and Oleg Grabar: The Dome of the Rock, London 1996, frontispiece and pp. 154-5. £1500-2000

19cm high overall

These figures are based upon the set of four seasons which were part of Louis XIV's 'Grande Commande' for the park at Versailles. Following Charles Le Brun's preliminary designs (see additional image), the statues were executed in marble by four different sculptors.

The Belleteste family were amongst the most renowned Dieppoise ivory carvers; as well as the workshop in Dieppe, they had premises in Paris. Supposedly a set of Jean-Antoine's seasons were in the cabinets of Marie-Antoinette at Versailles and another set of seasons (as well as many other pieces) may be found at the Chateau-Musée de Dieppe. His son Louis-Charles-Vincent (1757-1819) was equally well known; his ivory model of an 88-gun ship given to Napoleon is held by the French National Maritime Museum (Inventory No.1BF8). The grandson Louis-Charles-Antoine (1787-1832) worked for the Duchesse de Berry.

For a closely matching set of Belleteste seasons, see Bonham's, Sydney, 27 May 2012, lot 303 and for other sets, see: Christie's, Paris, 24 June 2009, lot 400 and Bonham's, London, 2 November 2011, lot 29, all on similar waisted plinths. £2500-3500

The short-lived Portland Co. Ltd. was the brainchild of Harry Emanuel (1830-1898), the retail jeweller and silversmith of 5 Hanover Square, who in 1856 filed a patent in London which covered improvements in the manufacture of spoons, forks, &c. Premises were acquired for the enterprise in Ridinghouse Street, Portland Place and the company registered in August 1859. One of the shareholders was Francis Higgins junior (1818-1908) who was appointed the company's manager. By early 1861 Emanuel had sold his shares and Higgins moved the factory to Clapton Mills near Loudwater, Buckinghamshire. Although the Portland Co. Ltd., 'Manufacturers of silver and electro-plated goods, by patent machinery,' was represented at the International Exhibition of 1862, the company did not prosper. The remaining shareholders decided in March 1863 to wind-up the business and Higgins, who must have invested a great deal of time and effort on their behalf, declared himself bankrupt in December 1867.

Graham Watling (1930-1996) enjoyed a successful career as a teacher of arts and crafts for seventeen years, whilst simultaneously exhibiting his silver and jewellery at the major UK craft fairs, as well as a number of international exhibitions. When offered a workshop by the National Trust in the idyllic village of Lacock in 1972 however, he was delighted to take up the chance to be a full-time silversmith. The business expanded through the 1970s, so that in 1977 he was able to move to one of the few freehold properties in the village, the old butcher's shop. The business is run now by his children as Watling Goldsmiths of Lacock. For further information, see John Andrew and Derek Styles, Designer British Silver, Woodbridge, 2015, pp.474-479. £200-300

The inscription reads: 'Presented to W.N. Blake by The Cinema Veterans Dec. 7th 1931.'

'''The Cinema Veterans'', the men who were the pioneers of the cinematograph in Great Britain and who now number not more than one hundred and sixty, meeting this week at the Holborn Restaurant, London, used the occasion to present to their retiring Hon. Secretary, Mr. W.N. Blake, of Bedford, a very handsome solid silver loving cup, a silver tea service, and an illuminated address, in recognition of his services since the inception of their organization.' (The Bedfordshire Times and Independent, Bedford, 11 December 1931, p.9)

William Norman Blake (1870/71-1932), a native of Bedford and originally a photographer, became manager of the town's Empire Cinema. In 1924 he was a founder member and first chairman of The Cinema Veterans (1903), which he and Sir William Jury and Arthur Cunningham, all senior members of the British Film Industry, had established following the death in 1921 of William Friese Green. The latter, an inventor and pioneer British film-maker, had died in abject poverty and through The Cinema Veterans it was Blake and his associates' intention that nobody connected with the industry should die in such circumstances again.

(1935), the 'Glebelands' Snooker Tournament (1949) and the 'Glebelands' Xmas Snooker Handicap (1937 to 1972), two presented by Sir William Jury.

William Frederick Jury (1870-1944) began his career as assistant to his father-in-law, William Charles Marsh, an '(art) illuminator' and pyrotechnist, specialising in firework displays, general illuminations with electric lights, limelights and combinations of glass and variegate lamps. Marsh died in 1897 leaving Jury to continue the business. Two years later he added films to his repertoire of lightshows, giving early cinematograph exhibitions at fetes and other venues. By 1912 Jury's interests in the cinema were so important that he had become one of the earliest and most successful of film distributors in the United Kingdom. He was appointed the unpaid Chairman of the War Office Cinema Committee in 1916 and for this and other philanthropic services to the industry, he was given a knighthood in 1918. In October 1935, Sir William purchased Glebelands, a mansion near Wokingham in Surrey and presented it to the Cinematograph Trade Benevolent Fund, of which he had long been chairman, for use as a convalescent and rest home for some sixty members and former members of the industry.
