Sale staples are holding up well

Auction trio reflects an overall buoyancy with the usual areas showing underlying strength
Sorrento tilt-top table – £20,000 at Wilkinson’s.
Milanese architectural writing cabinet – £12,500.

Three substantial sales from Edinburgh to Exeter via Doncaster last month confirmed the promise of early spring with the staple areas of furniture, silver and ceramics holding up and, for named or specialist-interest material, doing well.

The figures underline the overall buoyancy.

At Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood (21% buyer’s premium) at Exeter on April 11-12, 1110 lots enjoyed a 78% success rate and a hammer total of £787,000.

At Lyon & Turnbull’s (25% buyer’s premium) sale of Post-1860 Design at Edinburgh on April 26 the equivalent figures were 557 lots, 73% and £434,000.

For Wilkinson’s (17.5% buyer’s premium) at Doncaster on April 23 they read 615, 73% and £305,000.
