The last #curatedbypfk auction of the year did well, attracting telephone bids from across the globe!

Following on from our previous success with Karolina Larusdottir’s original oil paintings, the last piece of the single owner collection attracted fierce competition. With the same two telephone bidders battling it out, ‘Intimate Conversations’ sold for £1,950!

Consigned from a private vendor in Penrith, a Persian runner of Qashqai design sold to the internet for £240.

Most popular among the ceramics, an early 20th Century Chinese Wu Shuang Pu porcelain bachelor’s teapot with some damage sourced from a house clearance sold to the internet at £110.

In the cabinet, a quantity of watches including a Victorian pocket watch sold to the internet at £75. An unusual 19th Century King Charles Spaniel brooch sold to the internet at £70.

Among the taxidermy, an antique juvenile brown bear skin sold to the room for £130. An antique European Wildcat head with an old exhibition label to the base sold to the room for £95.

Copper caught the room’s eye. A copper log bucket and coal scuttle did well at £70.

Furniture did well. A George III oak press cupboard with its original interior sold to the room for £160. A 17th/18th Century oak coffer did well at £140.

A set of eight 19th Century mahogany dining chairs with repairs did well with the room at £100.

The first auction in the New Year is 8th January: The New Year Sale. If you’d like to consign items to us, we’re next taking in 13th-15th January for our 22nd January Winter Sports,  Exploration, Interiors & Clearance auction.
