Vintage Antiques and Collectables Essex Auction - June 8 2009 Update

Today’s auction has just finished and we are pleased with a number of the results namely…

Lot 172 a hand painted Herend floral tea set which proved to be a very popular lot making £330 against an estimate of £60 - £80.

Lot 41 The french designer Ligne roset corner suite and foot stool which totalled £300 against estimates of £100 - £150.

Lot 11 A beautiful large Louis XVI style Armoire which sold for £320.

A 1970’s retro dressing table and stool sold for £260 against an estimate of £80 - £120. We also had good results on some silver and Lladro figures, so not too bad.

Now onto the next sale and we are gearing up for the Fine Art sale 17th June 2009, which goes on view Saturday 13th June 10-2, Monday 15th June 10-7 and Tuesday 16th June 10-7. We have been extremely busy sending out catalogues, writing condition reports and submitting further images, we wait with baited breath to see what response we get once the lots are displayed for all to see.

We have a number of interesting lots in the auction on the 17th June, including a large diamond Tiffany & co ring G colour clarity VVS 2, which could make someone very happy!! As well as a very important set of six George the second Chairs, which were originally sold in the Mentmore sale of the 1970s, billed as the sale of the century and the property of Lord Rothschild, which are already fetching lots of interest. Along with a number of large collections of pocket watches, troika ceramics, Prattware pot lids. I will post again after the sale to let you know how they all got on.
