Spring has been extremely busy Clarks of Liskeard. A Stamp & Coin sale saw some great results with a Richard III coin securing interest at £680 for its delighted new local owner & fervent fan of the maligned King after a lengthy battle with an online bidder.
A George V wreath crown made £200 whilst an Edwardian half crown set was bid to £4400. Condition is paramount for serious collectors & an 1881 Victorian half crown of good grade saw interest at £230.
The second sale was quite different with a specialist jewellery & watch start followed by a general household. With again most of the jewellery selling one of the highlights was a stylish 1996 gents 18ct gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual which sold well over estimate at £3500. A ladies 0.75ct diamond ring made £600 whilst an old cushion cut secured interest well above its vendor reserve at £1750. A gold Albert chain attracted plenty of online interest at £620 whilst a small 18ct gold diamond trilogy ring made £920.
Art deco style rings often have appeal & such a ring adorned with an emerald & baguette cut diamonds attracted interest at £300. Ceylon sapphires always have great appeal & once again this was the case with an 18ct gold mounted sapphire securing £1100 at the hammer.
The General household aspect of the sale followed & despite there being no “sleepers” as such still grossed over five figures with furniture, mixed empehera & costume jewellery all performing very well relative to what they were. Entries are invited now for our May 20th sale which includes a clearance from Trematon Hall.
