Nice little earners for salerooms

Small can indeed be beautiful as a series of card and vesta case lots up at auction demonstrate

PORTABLE, pretty and precious, card and vesta cases and the other good things that come in little boxes are almost guaranteed to attract buyers – a point underlined when two collections were near sell-out sales to start the year.

At Lawrences (19.5% buyer’s premium) of Crewkerne on January 17, the first 497-lot tranche of a collection of vesta cases totalled £86,000. At Bellmans (20% buyers premium) of Wisborough Green on January 12, 42 lots from a collection of castle-top card cases, vertu and vinaigrettes brought over £36,500.
