The latest picture auction at 1818 ending sun 24th October, saw steady bidding.

Lot 822, a watercolour, by W H Somervell, a sepia landscape study, had seeping interest at £150

Lot 829, an oil painting by Wilfred Higgins, a portrait study, not always of interest to those other than family, saw a heads up price of £370

Lot 844, an oil painting of stag and game, sold for £135, possibly to pre-empt a Christmas turkey shortage

Lot 864, a pastel sketch, by Robert Porter, a jazz quartet, saw jazzy bidding to £100
