Auction Highlights

1st February 2018 Auction Highlights

Despite the cold weather the auction room was the hottest place to be on the 1st February with strong competition right throughout the sale. The jewellery and silver section was well attended and some fierce bidding took place with one certain buyer being so rude shouting and complaining about him not buying items and having to bid above the estimates throughout the section it became a bit of a laugh, I felt sorry for his wife having to wake up next to him.

The picture and ceramic section was also very lively with some good prices achieved.

for years it's has been said that brown furniture is out of fashion, well there are very good indications country wide that the market is changing. About time too!!!

Bid of £3400 so couldn't let it go

Low

diamond full eternity ring

Est. £400/600, the owner paid £1500, not a bid, nothing wrong with it and worth every penny of our estimate.

 

High,

The picture section was good with some very happy vendors

Lot 510 a Tabriz rug est £200/300

Followed by a good furniture section.

As stated earlier the furniture sales are coming back, perhaps people are now releasing what great value for money antique furniture is, and how it has stood the test of time.
