The Geer Collection

A private collection is always a joy for the auctioneer to discover – assembled by a single owner, they can often surprise, bringing together unique and contrasting objects that seem to have no place together, yet seem to suit each other within the collector’s home. Bound together by an interest in animals, the present collection, from a local 16 century cottage includes a number of works by the sculptor Guy Taplin (b.1939), along with works by the ornithological painter Richard Barrett Talbot-Kelly (1896-1971) and some impressive taxidermy specimens.
