Fine Art Sale, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood, Exeter, 13th-14th July

With their vibrant hues and distinctive brushstrokes, Mary Feddon's still life paintings are always a joy to discover. Her Pink and Orange oil on canvas, pictured, comes up for sale at this auction in Devon, with an estimate of £4,000-£6,000. If you'd rather look than buy, pop along to the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol where there is currently an exhibition of her work.

Also in this two-day sale, there is ceramics, glass, silver, jewellery and furniture on offer, which includes a rather cute set of six George V butterfly menu or place name holders with inlaid mother-of-pearl wings (£300-£500).
