OTHER NEWS

Last week, in the sale of militaria it was a rather unusual lot that hit the headline.

During the South African ‘Boer War’ 1899-1902 the Atlantic Island of St. Helena was used as a Prisoner of War camp. The story goes that the POWs got on well with the soldiers and there was a lot of barter and exchange of favours between the two – and these two pieces were gifted as a result of such a deal. The inscription on the bottom states that they were carved by C. J. Jacob in 1902 and they were given to the vendor’s grandfather who was stationed on the island. The hammer price was £2,000.

Coming up, we have hair and make-up standing by for the Vintage and Designer Fashion, Furs & Textile auction on Tuesday 11th November. Your special outfit for Christmas could be hanging on our rails already!  The catalogue is building up here.

Excitement and interest are growing in the NODDY IN TOYLAND COLLECTION sale on Wednesday 19th November. We have original illustrations, 1st edition books and a wide variety of ephemera featuring this lovable little Enid Blyton character!
