This morning in London it was a frosty grey start but at Chiswick Auctions the Valentines sale was hotting up the room. The beginning of the sale was orientated towards romance and there were many beautiful and romantic pieces of jewellery. Antique to Contemporary Diamonds galore, solitaires and clusters sold to happy customers in the room and on commission bidding. We would like to think these will find happy recipients on the 14th February.
Tracie Vallis, our toy and textile specialist, added two lots of ‘Cheeky’ Merrythought teddy bears to thrill arctophiles and there were plenty of good fur coats to keep you warm through the cold month ahead.
Matt Caddick said “Despite having a sale of excess of 1000 lots, the romantics in the room stayed focused and many beautiful Valentines gift was won in time for tomorrow... There was no doubt going to be some very happy ladies out there come the 14th.”
