25,000 sale at
Gloucester Antique Centre

A Louis XVI Temple DAmour Cercles Tournants Clock made by Jacques-Franois Festeau in Paris around 1785 has been sold for 25,000 to Ukrainian buyers who have a Cotswolds home. Specialist clocks dealer Jillings made the sale, after the purchasers spotted Jillings fine range of clocks at Gloucester Antique Centre.

This is just the latest high value result for Gloucester Antique Centre where sales are up significantly over the same period last year.

Antique Centre manager, Stephen Zacaroli, said: This underscores the attractiveness ofGloucester Quays as a destination for shoppers seeking fine and interesting pieces.

Other recent centre sales include a beautiful pearl choker for close to 1000, an Arts and Crafts Longcase Clock for almost 2,000, a number of pieces of gold and diamond jewellery which fetched between 1000 and 2000, a 19th century oil painting of Antwerp that sold for 1,650 and an 1820s Regency mahogany sideboard for 1,225.

The oil painting of Antwerp was sold by paintings dealer, Cambridge Fine Arts, which specialises in Victorian and Edwardian oil paintings of arcadia, cityscapes and rural landscapes, with a particular interest in Scottish highland scenes.

We have built up a reputation for quality clocks, fine paintings and antique and collectable jewellery, added Antique Centre Manager Stephen. In the current climate, where money in the bank does not provide a great return, these items provide a solid long term investment.
