AUCTION RESULTS for Psatharis 12th Auction

Property from the estate of Themistoklis Dervis, former Mayor of Nicosia.
Paintings, Decorative Objects, Persian Rugs, Furniture, and Jewellery.

17 October, 2012

The 12th auction by Psatharis Auction House, of works and objects of art of Dr. Themistoklis Dervis, the former Mayor of Nicosia, which was held recently, on 17/10/2012,  at the HILTON HOTEL - NICOSIA, was very successful,

Out of the 56 objects (furniture, carpets, paintings, lights and other small items) 38 were sold, ie. 67%. The writing bureau, catalogue number 38, received the most bids (21) and quadrupled its price, from €700 to realise €3879. The barometer, thermometer and hydrometer, number 4, from €80 realised €587 after 18 bids, a watch and two candlesticks, number 5 in the catalogue, from the starting price of €100 realised €517 after 16 bids. The two paintings in the catalogue, by Flemish artist Jean Francoise (1731 - 1787) and of Josef Wilhem Suhs (1864 - 1938), the German artist, also found a buyer, selling at €5877 and €3526 respectively.  The public also showed an interest in the five hand-made Persian carpets, with the focus centred on the Tabris carpet, which, from the starting price of €850, realised €2115 after 11 bids. The three mirrors were also successful, with the “Large Mirror”, 180 x 114 cm from its starting price of €1800 realising €3879 after 9 bids.  Out of the four crystal chandeliers, three were sold, with particular interest in the chandelier no. 29, which, from its starting price of €1500, realised €2586 after 7 bids.

The public, however, did not show any interest in the jewellery, of which, despite the low starting price, only two rings were sold, numbers 61 and 69 in the catalogue.

Themistocles Dervis: An eminent Cypriot general practitioner, mayor of Nicosia for a total of 27 years, between 1929 and 1959 and a politician actively involved in Cyprus politics for many years.

He was born in Nicosia on 28.3.1894 and died on 20.9.1968. He graduated from the Pancyprian Gymnasium and studied medicine at the Universities in Paris, Berlin and Zurich (1913 - 1917) and subsequently attended from time to time special medical courses in Berlin, Paris, Vienna, New York and Boston.

 He practised as a doctor in hospitals in Zurich and Geneva (1918 - 19).  He returned to Cyprus in 1919 and went into practise as a doctor in Nicosia and at the same time was actively involved with public affairs. In 1943 he was one of the main instigators and founders of the Cyprus National Party and in 1959 a founding member and president of the Democratic Union.

 He was also a member of the district education committee of the archdiocese (1932-1939), president of the Public Library Committee in Nicosia (1937 - 1959), president of “Pankypria”, the High School Association, honorary President of the Cyprus Medical Association and president of the Pancyprian Federation.  At the same time, Dervis published and edited the right wing “Ethnos” and “Ethniki” newspapers.
