Skyrack Arcticle about the 1905 Auction at Parlington

The following listing is a combination of two documents, the 1905 Valuation for Probate and secondly the Auction Catalogue, of the sale held from July 24th to 29th at Parlington. But before the listing is a newly acquired record from the local newspaper on the Saturday, the last day of the sale, about the auction.

Sale at Parlington
The Late Col. Gascoigne's Effects

A large company assembled at Parlington Hall on Monday when Messrs Hollis and Webb, auctioneers, commenced to sell by auction the indoor and outdoor effects of the late Col. F. C. Trench Gascoigne. Many persons from Garforth, Aberford and the surrounding villages were present, desirous no doubt of securing a souvenir of the esteemed lord of the manor, whilst others animated by business instincts, came from London, Liverpool, Leeds etc. Nearly 2,000 lots were to be disposed of, and the sale was spread over the week. On Monday Mr J Stenson Webb, the officiating auctioneer, offered the contents of some of the corridors, the entrance hall, the drawing room, and the small drawing room. Bidding was brisk and good prices were realised.
The hall contained several pieces of old Chippendale furniture, which formed part of an old drinking suite, used probably between 1780 - 1800. Had the suite been complete no doubt a very large figure would have been realised and the pieces excited considerable competition.
They consisted of three Chippendale square stools, carved on the knees with lion's heads, and resting on claw feet. These realising £91 7s. 0d;
Four Chippendale forms, two 5ft 6in. And two 7ft. Long, with carved supports to match, fetched £88 4s 0d.;
and two settees, with upholstered backs and finely carved supports, £210. 0s 0d
Other interesting lots which realised good prices were a pair of 24in. Brass canon on oak carriages, £28 0s 0d;
six mahogany chairs with shell shaped backs, £12 0s 0d;
a Sheraton mahogany oval brass bound wine cooler, £8 0s 0d;
a 6ft. 3in. Sheraton mahogany sideboard, £4 0s 0d;
empire clock on Sienna marble stand, surmounted by figure of Æneas, £21 0s 0d;
two Carrara marble figures, representing "Summer" and "Winter", £60 18s. 0d;
a pair of fine quality Oriental vases and covers (one cover damaged), £105 0s 0d.
and an ormolu empire striking clock, £8 8s.
There was again a good attendance on Tuesday, when a Geneva orchestrian organ by F. Conclian realised £42 0s 0d;
a Spode china tea and breakfast service, 12 guineas;
a Minton service, 7 guineas ; a very pretty dessert service, 16 guineas;
a single Sevres china plate of fine quality, £20;
and a painted dinner service 13 guineas.

** Notes ** The text in this section is copied (tediously) from the original typed valuation produced in June 1905.
It is accurate to the best of my knowledge, but like any transcript there are some uncertainties caused by mis-spelling, and other typographical errors.
The layout of the document is generally in the form of a room, followed by a paragraph of the items contained within it; exceptions are where there are significant collections like silver in the room, they are listed separately after the main body of items.
For clarity and to bring the document into line with the later auction document from July 1905 (which I hope to add in full, in the future), I have added a line break after each description in the manner of lot items at auction, although this does add considerably to the length of the document it is a lot easier to read. The original transcript makes use of a number of abbreviations to save time (examples: &c = e.t.c. Do, do, Ditto = same as item before).

** Author's Comments ** Where I have noticed any obvious errors I have added a comment in the following style: [comment] If the item is known, or is of some interest I have added a note to this effect. The auction catalogue, a photocopy, the original is at Temple Newsam has what appear to be pencil notes of the sale price achieved on the day, sometimes clear sometimes not; I have added them where possible. For example 10/- = 10 Shillings or 50p in todays currency. What that equates to in real terms I hasve yet to set out.

** Auction Reference ** Where the item is identified in the auction document of July 1905 it is noted in this style, along with extra data where available.

Interpretation of the Entrance Hall, based on the above data.

We can get a pretty good idea of how the Entrance Hall looked internally by the description of items from the two documents (Valuation & Auction). For example maroon is the dominant colour of fabrics on the furniture and curtains. Remember the plan of the entrance hall is rectangular around 24ft wide by 30ft long. The access from the Porté Cochere is through a casement with a single door and fixed lights either side. There are no windows in the walls and it is single storey.

Standing, as it were metaphorically, with your back to the entrance door; off to the right is an alcove for the organ, and directly in front at the end of the room, 30ft away is a single door opening leading to the corridor to the principal rooms. The alcove for the organ is roughly midway along the right wall, bisecting the space either side are two shallow semi-circular recesses; could each of these have had one of the carrara marble figures located. Opposite the organ on the other long wall, in the centre is a fireplace; most likely marble, was this the position of the marble and bronze clock, with the Greek figurine? The furniture comprising the Chippendale pieces along with a few other items, presents a very regal scene, and although large pieces, the room is plenty big enough to carry all the furniture.

Adorning the walls would be the ten paintings, nine family portraits and the hunting scene.

The floors were undoubtably stone, marble or limestone perhaps, evidence of marble skirtings and paving has been uncovered on the site, and is noted elsewhere in the artefacts section. Topping this off was the Brussels carpet, placed centrally with a border, given the sizes indicated of around 3ft, showing the stone paved finish.

My view is that it is likely that the structure featured a flat roof behind the stone cornice at the head of the walls, probably lead covered, with perhaps a central lantern type roof light to illuminate the space below. Certainly without a roof light the entrance hall would have been very dark, especially as the maroon curtains would have obscured some of the light from entering by the windows either side of the entrance door.

More to follow in due course! [Added: 10/05/2011] Small Drawing Room Auction data added, thanks to Pauline Robson for transcribing!

    [Note the typist must have been made aware of the use of the abbreviation "do" that is, ditto.
    For those unaware of this expression, which I came across decades ago during lessons in Quantity Surveying… whew! Essentially it is used to save re-writing the keyword.
    The above details of the items in Bedroom 4 like many other rooms feature, "Mahogany" regularly, so to avoid typing the word over and over you use the abbreviation "do" or "ditto" to say that it is basically the same I.
    e.
    class of wood in this case, but the piece differs in that it is a rail, or table etc.
    It seems likely the typist must have reached saturation point on a hot summer afternoon; (it was authored in June 1905) and a colleague explained how to save time by using the ditto abbreviation!]
