Diversity makes for another successful Specialist Collectors’ Sale….

Posted on

With unusual sections that included Pigeon memorabilia, Railwayana and Advertising items, Brewing ephemera and Smoking and Tobacciana, Cuttlestones’ latest Specialist Collectors Sale on Friday, 29th July was perhaps the most diverse yet!

Such curious lots are becoming increasingly popular, as proven by the strong presence of internet bidders from around the world via our live online bidding service. In terms of overall sales, however, the more ‘traditional’ areas of Militaria, Toys, Silver and Gold were the best performers, with sporting and motoring ephemera also achieving great sales:

Military stars included Lot 237, a WWI Territorial War Medal Trio, sold for £420; Lot 270, a German WWII survival machete which fetched £1,000; and Lot 281, a Russian Imperial Cossack Sword dated 1916, which sold for an impressive £1,300. The highlight of the 90-lot strong Toys section, which included teddy bears, railway sets and toy soldiers to just scratch the surface, was a collection of 48 matchbox Moko Lesney diecast toys – sold across 10 lots it totalled £1,295.

Reflecting the ever-rich in demand for sporting and motoring items Lot 459, comprising ten Wisden Cricketer Almanacs, realised a healthy £280 while Lot 371, a Bentley Radiator Cap, fetched £280.
