Auction Results Round-up: November Fine Arts Auction

David Brookes:

"The miscellaneous section of 1818 Auctioneers' two-day catalogue auction was as unpredictable as ever in a changing global market and as always it was the interesting and unusual that excited our bidders.

Lot 403, an early Winston Churchill signed letter, dated 1908 when he was president of the Board of Trade sold within estimate at £200.

Also unique was Lot 468, a late 19th century American, Hammond and co of New York, typewriter of unusual piano keyboard design in a golden oak case, selling for £750.

Of interest also, an Edwardian oak tantalus/ compendium with fully fitted interior comprising glasses, decanters, card games and cribbage section (in fact all you need for an exciting night in the Lake District!) sold above estimate at £360.

A Moorcroft pottery candlestick made around the time of the first world war for Liberty and co in the Claremont pattern found a buyer at £400.

The furniture section was lead by quality, with such as an Art Nouveau inlaid revolving bookcase, lot 1160, showing strong interest at £820.  A 19th Century mahogany sofa of scroll design, lot 1051 sold for £360 - stronger than anticipated. Lot 1052 a Victorian walnut full height bookcase secretaire (desk) sold for £280.

Bucking the trend in the brown furniture, an early 20th oak trolley, lot 1069, sold for £135, and a Victorian pew from a church in St Annes, lot 1125, sold for above estimate at £160.

Lot 1142, a copper mirror having fish and crustation decoration, in the Newlyn school style but not named, found a new home at £320.

Of seasonal interest, lot 1046, a vintage wooden toboggan sold for £32."
