Think four Cs. That covers our July 1st auction. CAR, CIGARS, CAPODIMONTE AND CLOCKS.
We have a 1929 Morris Cowley Flatnose saloon for sale, registration KX 3053. Our vendor remembers trips out with the whole family. And then dad decided to rebuild it! In the meantime a tree grew in front of the garage door, which we had to have removed before dragging it out. It is for restoration, whilst a restored engine is in place and the original comes too. Plenty of work ahead but what a wonderful limo you will then have, and one with suicide rear doors, plenty of space and soft leather seats. No reserve, it has an estimate of £800 TO £1500.
Mr X, our deceased client in Pinner, was a major CIGAR smoker. We are selling the ones he hadn’t got round to – 2000 of them along with lots of interesting pipe tobacco and his extensive pipe collection.. Mostly in sealed boxes, the cigars originate from many countries including Cuba.
Mr Y, our deceased client in Ruislip, was a CLOCK collector. We are pleased to offer his collection of mainly 19th century mantel clocks, most of which were purchased for their prettiness with many of them supporting porcelain panels, some with side pieces. They are a joy to behold and good examples.
And our cigar smoker also collected Capodimonte, so we have lots of large figures many humorous, including a dentist, a doctor, an optician and an organ grinder.
And then the rest of the sale which includes a JEWELLERY section of maybe 60 lots with much gold; a smallish SILVER AND PLATE section which includes claret jugs and a good table service for 12 in an Art Deco cabinet, by Harrison Bros. There’s lots of STAMPS including good collections, COINS, some gold, MEDALS and POSTCARDS, old football programmes. TOYS include a large collection of Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet figures and vehicles, Beano items, model trains, model racing cars, vintage felt dolls and animals, and teddy bears.
