Auction Results

Chiswick Auctions Arts, Antiques & Interior sale had over 550 lots and 225 furniture lots for sale. The first part of the sale had a good selection of paintings, pastels and pencil studies. Paintings always attract a lot of interest from those that buy because they like it - to the collectors who have a keen eye.  This week the range was very broad and while the more expensive pieces were the focus for many, there was a lot of interest shown in the large more contemporary and colourful oil on canvas that continued reaching comfortable prices within their estimates giving new buyers confidence to buy.

Lots 112 and 114, 19th century busts in the antique manner of Grecian nobles & Gods and a Roman noble did exceptionally well exceeding their conservative estimates reaching £976 inclusive and £1054 inclusive (see below), this vendor will be having a great Easter we hope.

Lot 24, a good collection of vintage & later fishing reels and tackle fetched a very reasonable £174 inclusive (see below) if you have been thinking about clearing the garden shed now might be the time. While lot 25 a boxed Cartier yellow metal pen sold for £198 inclusive (see below) just goes to show there may be real gold in the old desk drawers at home.

A highlight of the sale was lot 394 an impressive 18ct white gold and diamond line bracelet, set with 13.08ct of brilliant cut stones, sold for £8495 inclusive (see below) making some ones heart flutter.
