The set, from the private collection of the late London art dealer, Sir Jack Baer, sit alongside another pair of a boar and camel and a single panel depicting a hilltop village.
Also featured is a Victorian stone model of the famous Uffizi Boar, as well as a selection of fine furniture and works of art from the 17th-20th centuries, including renowned makers such as Meissen, Gillows of Lancaster, and Thomas Chippendale, giving a taster of the full sale to be published soon.
