Rare Lighter Blazes Away at Auction...

6th July 2019

The second day of Lawrences’ Summer Fine Art auction in Crewkerne began with jewellery and there were strong prices for a variety of items that combined quality, fashion, rarity and distinctive design.

Amber continued to perform well with a 90cm long necklace formed of graduated beads making £2,870. Gold proved dependable  once again as an Indian carved hinged bangle, once the property of Dr Henry Roe Walker, physician to the Prime Minister Lord Salisbury, doubled its low estimate to make £4,500 and an Art Deco sapphire and gold brooch with a scrolling mount similarly exceeded expectations to make £2,750. A fine diamond three stone ring with 2.5 carats of brilliant-cut stones made £4,000 but two rather more masculine lots took the top honours. An 18 carat gold Dunhill lighter, set with a small clock, sparked keen bidding to make £6,750 whilst a Gentleman’s Oyster Perpetual Submariner watch by Rolex ticked up a price of £13,750.

“I have to say I’m VERY impressed by the level of research that has gone in to the various items of my late father’s ...  Matthew sent me the full history of my Grandfather’s medals from WW1 - without any input from myself - so I’d only just sent him a note saying thanks, then the postman arrived with your items ... with even more evidence of unfrequented detailed research ! It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with you all ... and may the pleasant surprises keep on coming !”
