Our Wines and Spirits did very well, with this MacAllan Anniversary Malt Whisky selling for £4,100, a Bowmore 1779-1979 Bicentenary Islay whisky sold for £1,400 and a Glengrant 42-Year-Old Highland Malt Scotch whisky brought £520.
Our Oriental section was well-represented, with highlights including a late 19th/early 20th century Chinese ivory scholars' table screen which brought £740, a 19th century Japanese Tokyo school ivory figurine, 'The Basket Seller' which sold for £500 and a well-carved 19th century Chinese carved ivory figure of a sleeping scholar/Li Bai, which also brought £500.
