Battered Salmon leap to £9,900

Clevedon Salerooms November Specialist Sale was lead by this  pair of 19th Century carved painted fish.  With damage to the tail fins and craquelure to the painted surface the fish were not as fresh as they might have been.  A pool of determined bidders took the bait of an estimate that reflected their condition, but very few onlookers expected the winning bidder to land the catch at £9,900! 

Providing further raised eyebrows was the collection of photo albums compiled by the Rev Francis John Griffith who was working as a missionary in Northern China and Mongolia in the 1920s.  The market for such items has grown dramatically in recent years but all were surprised when a bidder parted with £4,700 for the unique collection.  

Feathers were ruffled when a new record auction price was established for the Andrew Beer oil on canvas depicting three racing pigeons that made it home with the bidder paying £2,700.   The Jewellery section  included a fine Victorian garnet, diamond and pearl set pendant that sold for £3,700.  Whilst the pound may be weak for Brits travelling abroad, on-line bidders from around the world used it to their advantage with many overseas on-line bidders including furniture being purchased by a bidder in Australia and a teaset going to Vietnam!

The next Quarterly Specialist Sale will be held on Thursday 9th March.
