Hammer falls just shy of £10k on collection relating to stars of stage & screen…

Posted on
Another highlight from our Winter Antiques & Collectables sale back in December was a single-owner collection of paper items relating to stage, screen, pop and sports stars. 
 
Split into 40 lots by genre (i.e. pop & rock, state figures/politicians, TV, stage & theatre stars) the collection was amassed over a lifetime and covers the period from the mid-20th to early 21st century. 
 
While all lots sold and achieved near to or above estimate hammer prices, three lots in particular stood out, each seeing the hammer fall at an impressive £800:
 
Lot 153 – featuring public figures, fashion designer, politicians and state figures including Nelson Mandela, Margaret Thatcher, Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Ronald & Nancy Regan, Yves Saint Laurant, Vivienne Westwood & many, many more
 
Lot 154 – featuring stars of TV, film and theatre, including David Attenborough, Robert Redford, Anthony Hopkins, Mark Hamill, Tippi Hedrin, Diana Rigg and Clint Eastwood among dozens
 
Lot 155 – again featuring stars of TV, film and theatre, including Liza Minelli. Christopher Lee, Ray Liotta, Jeff Bridges, Bridget Bardot. Salma Hayak, Michael Cain. Richard Gere & many, many more
 
The entire collection amassed a hammer price of £9,420
