19th MARCH 2015 Sale Information

Dear Friend,

Ref: Our next sale on the 19th March starting at 11am with viewing on the 18th from 1-­7pm and sale day from 9.30am


I hope you enjoyed our February sale. It really sang, especially the stick collection, and the fabulous stick with the carved ivory hare handle styled as a gent with stiff collar and cigar sold at £900.  The rest of the collection did well too and I know the vendor would have been thrilled so many people benefited.  AND THERE’S MORE ……. this sale on the 19TH MARCH WITH AN 11AM START has the remainder of the collection including 5 sticks made from rhino horn which makes them very rare.  One has a wonderful silver handle set with an intaglio another has a rhino horn handle carved as a dog head.  Additionally, we have many more malacca canes with carved ivory handles, one as a very fetching monkey. As if that’s not enough there are hundreds of old sticks with the traditional curved handle, frequently mounted in silver. This is a rare opportunity, please don’t miss it. And worked rhino horn is completely legal to trade within the UK.

This sale benifits in some way from unfortunate circumstances. That is to say that we are selling modern effects to clear debts.

The two amps each need 2 men to lift them, I joke not.  The whole system cost over £10,000.  We have a large modern leather-clad bed that incorporates a television, a carved wood and cane bed frame and another leather bed frame.  We must have half a dozen modern televisions (£80-­£120), modern kitchen equipment and some high fashion handbags and accessories.
