“We received instructions to sell an important Beswick collection from the family of a long standing client in Manchester who sadly passed away earlier this year. He built up one of the largest collections of Beswick animals I have seen for a long time.” Commented Naomi Grabham. “First up we carried out a probate valuation for the executors. There were horses absolutely everywhere in the house – no shelf or table top escaped, and we valued the collection at over £50,000.”
After instructions to auction the collection were received, Charterhouse despatched their own team of porters and vans to Manchester where they spent two days carefully packing the collection.
Included in the auction there are Beswick horses in all shapes, sizes and colours. Estimates vary from £30 up to £3,000 (plus 24% Buyers Premium inc VAT) for some of the rarer pieces. With nearly 500 lots just of Beswick, Charterhouse are expecting the auction on Thursday 18th May to be very busy with collectors attending in person from far and wide or bidding live at the auction via the internet.
Charterhouse is now accepting entries for this two day auction on 18th & 19th May auction featuring this collection of Beswick, with Doulton, silver, watches and jewellery. They are also accepting entries for their specialist auction of classic motorcycles on Wednesday 10th May and their next auction of classic cars on Sunday 18th June.
