The items were in the collection of Michael Tomkinson (1841-1921). Tomkinson and partner William Adam (1828-98) produced woven Axminster carpets in Kidderminster and by 1876 had 800 employees.
Tomkinson later acquired a reputation as a serious collector of Japanese works of art which he displayed at his home Franche Hall in Kidderminster.
His collection included ceramics, ivories, swords, textiles, lacquers, and numerous other Japanese works of art and his interest was reflected in a printed two-volume catalogue A Japanese Collection, published in 1898.
The collection to be offered at Mallams on May 2 will include a special edition of that catalogue printed on Indian paper and signed and dedicated by the author to his son Raymond Tomkinson in 1899. It is number seven of a limited edition of 200 and estimated at £1500-2500.
The collection is being sold by a direct descendant of Tomkinson.
