Interiors FEATURING – Coins & Medals , 2ND AUGUST 2017
Our Interiors auction on 2nd August was another great success with a gross hammer total achieved of just over £30,000. Our usual eclectic mix of antiques and later good quality items including jewellery, silver, collectables, furniture and more was all well represented, the sale including several house clearances from properties around Cumbria.
Highlights in the jewellery cabinet included a gentleman’s 1946 Rolex Oyster wristwatch selling at £1,100 as well as an Omega Seamaster De Ville wristwatch selling at £440. A gold coloured metal brooch modelled as three coins sold for £440 whilst, amongst the silver, a good early Victorian silver four piece tea service sold for £680 to a local bidder in the saleroom.
All of our Fortnightly Interiors auctions include a specialist section and this auction contained a section of antiquarian and collectable coins. Within this section, we had some great results including five sets of WWF 1976 ‘Conservation’ coins for £300, together with a quantity of British coinage for £190, both lots selling to buyers on the internet.
HOUSE CLEARANCE ITEMS
Away from the coins, one of our West Cumbrian house clearances yielded a great selection of musical lots. Top of the pops was a vintage Marshall guitar amp, selling to a specialist London buyer in the room (who had travelled to our saleroom specifically) for £1,100, whilst a vintage Capri amp made £540.
In the furniture section, a Victorian painted pitch pine shop counter sold for £300 to a local buyer, whilst an Ercol dining table with a set of hoop back chairs sold for £220 to another local buyer, this time bidding online.
