Eighteen watercolours by the British natural history illustrator and painter, Sarah Stone c.1760-1844, which came to Mallams from the estate of Patrick Dockar-Drysdale, were featured in the February Oxford Library sale and these performed exceptionally well, achieving a total price of just under £172000, almost 12 times top estimate.

Mallams is delighted that a further nine watercolours by the same artist are to be included in the Art & Music Sale taking place on 6 April, and these are expected to prove just as desirable.

One of the most striking is a watercolour depicting a yellow-headed amazon and salmon-crested cockatoo, signed 'Sarah Smith' and dated 1801. This work is recorded in the book "Sarah Stone: Natural Curiosities from the New Worlds" by Christine E Jackson, published in 1998.
