03/09/2014 : SIZZLING SEPTEMBER SALE FAR FROM BEING SKELETON…
A wide cross-section of Lots came under the hammer at Adam Partridge’s Liverpool saleroom on a beautiful late summers’ day, from a human skeleton to a collection of original artworks from the Philharmonic Hall.
Collectors who were vying to own a human skeleton pushed the price to a healthy £460, whilst a 1937 album of photographs from the Sino-Japanese war by R.Fong generated much interest, the hammer eventually fell at £440. Furniture items included an excellent Heals limed oak pair of wardrobes and dressing chest which realised £1100, a Chinese simulated bamboo display cabinet which sold for £560 and a large Edwardian serpentine fronted example made £380. A collection of original works of art from The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Society also attracted the bidders with a silk screen print by Bruce McLean realising £540 and ‘The Violinist’ by Jeffrey Spedding selling for £320. In the optical instruments & photography section, a good Kowa spotting scope made £270 and a quite rare Schmidt & Bender scope sold for £240.
Our next sale which features a specialist maritime section is on the 1st October. For details please contact the team on 01517098070
