I think these glasses, right, are wonderful:Theresienthal enamelled hock glasses from the 1890s, they give overthetop Art Nouveau a good name. In all, there are 17 glasses from a single private collection which together are estimated at [pounds sterling]1,500 to [pounds sterling]2,000 (at Bourne End Auction Rooms, near Marlow, on Wednesday).

If it had been mahogany, it would be double. Information on 01206 754754, www.reemans.com

We may be entering the silly season, but a lot of salerooms take August very seriously - now that collectors can buy over the internet from their laptops, sitting poolside, business doesn't have to stop.
