From a 1959 Jaguar XK150 for £77,000 to a £15,000 canine portrait by John Boultbee, £23,000 for a Patek Philippe wristwatch and a 17th century rapier for £2,100 - our June two-day auction weekend comprising Medals, Militaria & Country Pursuits and Fine Art & Antiques was incredibly eclectic and augmented by some very interesting single-owner collections including Classic Cars, Fine Art and Great Exhibition memorabilia
Our first triple auction weekend of 2021 couldn’t have been more different to last year’s event, which saw us on the brink of lockdown and at the start of a terrifying pandemic we are only gradually emerging from a full year later. However, now the sun is shining and the vaccination programme continues apace, and despite still being closed to the public, there is a much more confident atmosphere – and the prices achieved certainly bore this out.
