In the General Antiques section of the sale 475 lots were offered.  Although looking a bit sparse of furniture, there were some very interesting and unusual items of collectables and some very good quality jewellery on offer.


For example a large carved Coco de Mer sold for £240 and a Victorian glass hip flask in silver coloured Art Nouveau style case made £60. 






Lot 359 was a 1916 King George V gold sovereign set in a 9ct gold pendant surrounded with 16 dark blue stones (possibly sapphires) on a gold coloured chain, for which the hammer price was £375.







An 1876 Queen Victoria young head gold sovereign struck in coin alignment, set in a 9ct gold heart shaped fine filigree pendant with 3 clusters of red stones, sold for £320.








A 9ct gold charm bracelet with eleven 9ct gold charms sold for £260, and a 1893 Queen Victoria gold half sovereign set in a gold coloured metal pendant fetched £160.












Two Georgian miniature portraits on ivory made £100 each.











A Sky-watcher Skyliner telescope fetched £180, and a child’s Silver Cross pram sold for £150.













Amongst the furniture 8 lovely mahogany dining chairs with shaped carved backs, the seats requiring re-upholstering, made £290, which with Buyers’ Premium is £40 per chair.  The chairs were of high quality, and it is unusual to find a set of 8.






The sale of garden tools and white goods was a lot quieter this month.   
A Mountfield ride-on mower caused a great deal of interest and was finally sold for £600.  Certainly the right time of year to be selling it!







Also for auction were private and seized vehicles.  A total of 85 vehicles in all.  The highest price vehicle was a 2011 Audi Q5 TFSI Quattro Estate with only 29,102 miles on the clock which fetched £11,000.

Our next General Sale is on Saturday 19th August,for which entries need to have been received by Tuesday 15th.
