Another Sunday ends an awesome AV&C auction with a fine collection of modern Moorcroft and some good Beswick Figurines doing well. Quality tea services again are finding homes at satisfactory prices.

The star of the evening was four sandstone gargoyle face masks removed from a hospital in Ulverston when it was demolished. Also a rare corkscrew, the most unexpected top seller was a box of retro tea towels attaining £125. Look out for another installment finishing next Sunday night.
