A good AV&C auction for 16th January, and a promising start to 2022 after the Christmas break.

There was a good mix of modern and antique items in the auction which resulted in some good prices.

Sales of tea and dinner services were good with prices reflecting the quality and condition.

An usual oil painting of a racing pigeon did very well; it’s a niche collecting area, which can often yield high auction prices.
