Auction of silver teapotOur first sale of 2015 on 12th January saw strong bidding both online & in the saleroom, resulting in some excellent prices achieved throughout the auction. A boxed ladies Rolex Oyster Date just watch proved the pick of the lots on offer, selling for £1,300, whilst a 9ct Jaeger le Coultre gentleman’s wristwatch realised £320. Meanwhile a Futurama electric six-string guitar drew fierce bidding between an internet & room bidder before selling well above estimate to the latter for £460. And buyers were not deterred by the immense size of a 19th century ballroom mirror which again sold for £460 against a £200-300 estimate.

Our next Interiors sale is on Monday 9th February.
