Published: 16/04/2021Our Antiques and Collectables sale returned online this week for the first time in 2021 was a roaring success! Despite being postponed for four months due to lockdown the hammer prices at the sale were better than ever.
An incredibly strong area was a good collection of Chinese and oriental ceramics, with excellent results achieved for a large Chinese vase that sold for £2,600 followed by the hammer coming down on a pair of lovely blue and white Chinese ginger jars at £1,000 alongside many other items. An unusual blue Triumph Stag was up for sale for renovation and after strong bidding sold for £2,000 and a Castrol motor oil glass globe selling well above estimate at £600. As ever jewellery, silver and coins performed well. Stoneware and outdoor items have always been a best seller at the Sale Rooms and a magnificent pair of reconstituted stone lions caused quite a stir with three telephone bids as well as interest from the internet eventually selling on the hammer at £1,300. The star of the sale was an unlabelled violin and bow stamped Lupot, in need of rather a lot of restoration it had generated a lot of interest in the run up to sale day, and after a long bidding war it sold for £2,400.
