Chris Clubley & Co’s William Wilson reflects on their latest auction
The sale can be viewed between 10am and 1pm on the day of sale, while the auction commences at 1pm with outside lots.
A wide variety of lots have been consigned from across East and North Yorkshire.
Lots include an early 20th Century horn gramophone estimated at £100 to £150. A mamod steam traction engine and an early 20th Century magic lantern. A quantity of stone pots can be found in the outside lots.
Christmas is often a time associated with drinks and socialising. The sale contains a good collection of late 18th Century wine glasses. The collection includes rarer example with the white air blow spiral stem. Estimates range from £30 to £100.
The glass section also includes a private collection of cranberry, vaseline and other coloured glass.
Two cold painted bronzes, one of a stag, feature within the collectable lots. The stag is a good example of an early 20th Century Austrian cold painted bronze in the style of Franz Bergman. It could look perfect on the Christmas mantelpiece!
The sale is not short of furniture. The furniture section includes a longcase clock, various chest of drawers, Windsor chairs, dining tables, dressing tables and corner cabinets. A late 19th Century heavily carved library cabinet is of particular note. The piece is estimated at £400 to £600. The cabinet represents excellent value as in the past it would have realised over £1,000. A high quality side table with painted hunting detail can also be discovered in the furniture. The table should make £300 to £500.
