Biggles

 Mascot
Based in Abigail’s office, Biggles meets and greet clients in reception with a waggy tail. He is also to be found wandering around salerooms looking for doggy treats and has been known to “liberate” the odd sandwich out of a bag.

However, his main role is to feature in our auction catalogues. He has a loyal following of people who “Biggle-Spot” in the catalogues – if you would like a catalogue please contact Barbara “Bubbles” Benney our receptionist.

xDoulton and Beswick

Some of our auction successes

We have built up an enviable reputation for conducting specialist auctions of Beswick and Royal Doulton. This department is run by Naomi Grabham, Associate Director. Naomi comes from a farming background and her Mother and her Grandmother have been keen collectors of Beswick and Royal Doulton animals and figures for decades, so it is not entirely unsurprising that Naomi has followed in their footsteps.

As an expert, Naomi takes great pride and pleasure in identifying not only the names of the pieces she values, but also their shape numbers and numerous colour ways. Over the past few years, Naomi has been an active member of The Beswick Collectors Club and regularly attends regional meeting with other enthusiasts. This has resulted in her building up a valuable database of specialist dealers and collectors, along with Charterhouse being instructed to sell collections for clients from Staffordshire down to Devon.

All of our auctions use live internet bidding platforms to ensure that every lot, whether it is worth £20 or £500,000, reaches the widest possible market and sells for the best price possible. In the run up to an auction we can receive over 1,000 emails requesting further information to lots in the sale. Attached to these email replies, we regularly send out over 5,000 digital images, such is the interest generated in our auctions.

Bentley Brings in the Bids

“The Bentley we sold was a very special Bentley, being 1 of just 100 limited edition Mulliner Bentleys produced. Bought new by the vendor when living in Monaco, it has hardly been driven and featured some very special extra such as a speedo mounted in the rear so the passengers could see how fast it was being driven.” Commented Matthew Whitney.

A 1998 Bentley was the top lot at the Charterhouse auction of classic cars in their auction on Sunday 19th July, when it sold for £56,000.

The auction attracted hundreds of people who attended the sale. With live internet bidding with buyers from across Europe participating in the auction, and a strong market, resulted in Charterhouse selling £450,000 of classic and vintage cars.

Also performing well, was a brace of Jaguar E Types, selling for £58,000 and £45,000, a 1972 VW bay window camper van £20,000, a 1963 Glas Goggomobil TS250 microcar ££11,000, a 1954 Riley RME, garage stored for decades and with no paperwork, £5,200 and 2000 Aston Martin DB7 Volante for £26,000 selling to a couple who bought the car to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary!

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their busy programme of summer auctions including silver, jewellery, watches and wine in 26th August, followed by classic motorcycles on 4th September and classic cars on 16th September.

Garage Stored Carpet Sell for £3,200

A carpet, which had been stored in a garage for 10 years, sold for four times its estimate at the Charterhouse auction in Sherborne on Friday 24th July.

“The owner inherited the carpet and house from a close family member. As a relatively modern property, the carpet did not sit well in rooms with fitted carpets, so was somewhat redundant. In addition, the carpet was worn, cut and stained.” Commented Richard Bromell. “This combined with the rather unusual green coloured ground and a pink border resulted in it being relegated to the garage for a decade rolled up in a plastic sheet!”

Make in Ushak, Western Turkey, the carpet was estimated at £500-1,000 and there was plenty of pre-sale interest at the Charterhouse auction. With bidders in the auction room, a bank of telephone bidder and clients bidding live online during the sale, the bidding opened at £500 and quickly rose to £3,200 when the hammer came down. This was much to the delight of the owner who attached little value to the old carpet and was looking to generate space in his garage.

The summer continues to be a busy time at Charterhouse in Sherborne with four auctions in four weeks. First up is a two day auction specialising in silver, jewellery, watches and antiques with a special section of wine, port & spirits on 27th & 28th August, followed by classic motorcycles at the Carole Nash Motorcycle Eurojumble at Netley Marsh on Friday 4th September, classic cars at Shepton Mallet on Wednesday 16th September and lastly coins, medals, stamps, automobilia, clocks and collectors’ items on 24th & 25th September.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for this busy programme of summer sales.  For further information regarding these auctions or to arrange a home visit, contact Richard Bromell at Charterhouse, drop in and see them at The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne DT9 3BS 01935 812277 or send Richard an email of your items to sell on info@charterhouse-auction.com
