Another item of interest was a nice Canterbury, well polished and in excellent condition. This fell to a room bidder for £110. A silver box from Babugarh, India and with engraved signatures from the Jacob Horse Regiment, hit it’s top estimate of £50. It is 50 years since the famous photo was taken of the Beatles crossing Abbey Road and a large framed poster went for £20 showing the Fab Four are still popular today.
Overall the auction went well with a good percentage of items sold. Nearly £300 was raised for the Alexandra Devine Children’s Hospice from donations by SAS Auctions.
The next sale is on 5th October at Badger Farm Community Centre.
