The Liverpool Saleroom once again welcomed bidders to our second specialist Rock & Pop auction of the year which commenced with two outstanding examples of hand carved four-poster beds, one a copy of the King James bed and the other a copy of Henry VIIIís from Hampton Court Palace. Buyers certainly werenít caught napping when they sold for £2,550 and £1,700 respectively.
The specialist Rock & Pop section had keen bidders queuing up both to purchase many high value items of memorabilia. Highest price of the day was realised when an exceptionally rare example and fully signed copy of The Beatles album “A Hard Day’s Night” sold for £14,166.
A framed poster of The Beatles complete with all four autographs made £1850, a pre-production copy of “Here Comes The Sun” inspired by George Harrison sold for £500 and a copy of the album “Beatles For Sale” signed by George and Ringo went under the hammer for £480. Proving that good quality hi-fi equipment is still in demand, a fantastic set-up of Celestion 66 Studio speakers and ancillary equipment sold for £480.
