The new season started well with a busy auction at Otterbourne Village Hall. Over 350 lots were brought in on the day and a few surprises ensured an interesting auctionThe most interesting lot was an original oil painting of a Gentleman by Hungarian artist – Antal Jansek, who was born in 1907 and died in 1985. A commission bid left by an early viewer, who could not stay for the auction won the artwork for £220.
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.
Thank you for coming to auction at Otterbourne Village Hall between Chandlers Ford and Winchester which was on one hottest days so far this year. The June auction of 277 lots was a good one for model trains and retro furniture. A Robin Day revolving chair sold for £80. Four sets of model trains and carriages sold for around £40 each. There were a few bayonets and other militaria. Paddington did well. Along with a couple of traditional items: the Edwardian Magazine Rack and a blue and white Doulton Vase. Pictures and prices below.
We and we hope you, are looking forward to our next auction at Badger Farm Community Centre on the 6th July.
Our well attended auction had 245 diverse lots. The top lot was a British Railway – Brixton – station sign selling for £35. Followed by a Hornby trains, model trains, collectibles, cloth, glassware & furniture. Pictures and prices below.

A few differences to our calendar this year. The majority of the auctions are at Badger Farm Community Centre. After a successful auction at Otterbourne last year, we will be holding auctions there in March and September this year. In July we will return to Perins School in New Alresford and this will be combined with our cycle auction.
