Highlights from our August Auction Sale

Lot 82G – This Brown Leather Chesterfield Two-Seater Settee had a guide price of £100-£200, but sold for an impressive £240 at the Saturday of our August weekend auction

Our live online auction this month took place over the weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th August and featured an exciting array of items, from furniture and other household items to an unusually large assortment of swords and a large selection of jewellery too.

Plenty of lots from our Silverdale Saleroom sold for a good price, so check out some of the highlights from our most recent auction below. Who knows? Maybe they’ll provide some inspiration if you have a valuation in mind.

Of interest to many this weekend was the large section of swords for auction, of which the ones highlighted below are just a small selection. Following on from the popularity of numerous gun lots at last month’s auction, we had another couple of firearms featured in our August sale which also proved to be highly sought after.

Lot 820 – A 19th century Heavy French Cavalry Sword, and Lot 816 – A Stirrup Hilted Sword with blue and gilt 1796 type blade, both sold individually for £300 at our online auction earlier this month

A British Naval Brown Bess Sea Service Musket with ramrod, and an Early 20th Century French Charleville Flintlock Musket, both sold at auction by Potteries Auctions

These two muskets both did well at our August auction, with Lot 836 (top) – A British Naval Brown Bess Sea Service Musket with ramrod – being our highest selling lot of the weekend, fetching a very impressive £600 under the hammer.

It wasn’t just the collectable weaponry, however, that drew a lot of attention at auction. There was also a selection of jewellery that piqued plenty of people’s interest, including chains, bracelets, rings and sovereigns.
