A PAIR OF WHITE JADE BOWLS
PROPERTY FROM AN IMPORTANT COLLECTION FORMED BY R. W. SYMONDS (1889-1958) FOR MR & MRS JACK STEINBERG (LOTS 50, 51 & 58)Robert Wemyss Symonds (1889-1958) dominated the field of English furniture collecting in the mid-20th Century. Between 1921 and 1958 his books and articles formed and reflected the taste of a generation. He was involved in the formation of almost all of the great private collections of English furniture and clocks of the time, including those of Percival Griffiths, Eric & Ralph Moller, Samuel Messer and Joseph Sassoon Sykes. But it was not just furniture that Symonds sourced for his clients; his net was cast far wider, as can be seen by the collection formed by Mr. & Mrs. Steinberg under his guidance, including the Chinese items which are offered in this sale.
