Published: 06/10/2021The September sales were absolutely fantastic, with amazing results across all areas of the Antique & Collectables Sale. People often ask us “what is selling well at the moment?” and this can be a difficult question to answer, for the simple reason that so many things are popular right now. From a Rolex watch to studio pottery to a rare phonograph, the huge range of items that sell well at auction is astounding. The top selling lot in our sale was a rare model Edison Amberola phonograph with wax cylinders, the phonograph was one of the precursors to gramophones, and this particular phonograph sold on the hammer for £4,600.
Other highlights of the sale include a rare pocket globe selling for £3,500 after much competitive bidding from both online and telephone buyers; a canteen of silver flatware by Garrards & Co Ltd that sold for £1,800 and a 1980 MG BGT in excellent condition which, after much interest, sold for £4,000. An area that has seen increased popularity in recent years is studio pottery, an excellent example of this was a beautiful Waistel Cooper bowl that sold well above it’s estimate of £200-300 at £1,000.
Another highlight of the sale, and a slightly more predictable hit than some of the other lots in the sale, was a gentleman’s Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch, with the hammer falling at £2,200. As you can tell the variety of lots that are popular at auction is so wide ranging that there is something for everyone.
