Our Spring Fine Sale saw strong results across all departments, indicating a vibrant global market.  In our Ceramics department, A Carl Frederik Liisberg for Royal Copenhagen Vase sparked an intense bidding frenzy, ultimately achieving £5,410, while a set of Folio Society Rainbow Fairy Books by Andrew Lang raced past their original estimate, settling at £2,970 in our Collectables department.

Our Jewellery department produced many stellar results. Large gemstones commanded large prices, such as a Sapphire and Diamond ring which sold for £7,080, while a Substantial Old Cut Diamond ring that was discovered amongst a hoard of costume jewellery soared to £11,600. Competition was equally as fierce in our Paintings department where a sun-soaked cityscape by Maurice Levis achieved £5,152.
