Spring opener creates an upbeat mood

Hammer highlights

Generally regarded as a guide of things to come, the Spring Fine Sale at Tennants (20% buyer’s premium) at Leyburn on March 24-25 left auctioneer Jeremy Pattison in an upbeat mood.

Looking at the stats – 1049 lots offered, 86% selling to a hammer total of £1.46m – one can see why.

“There was a real buzz in the room over the two days with consistently strong prices being achieved throughout,” said Pattison.

Unlike the sales at Newbury and Lewes (see previous two pages), furniture was not the main focus although there was the usual triannual feast for admirers of Robert ‘Mouseman’ Thompson. No fewer than 87 pieces from the Kilburn workshops were led by a 4ft (1.22m) wide and tall open bookcase. A 1930s work, made for an Anglican neo-monastic women’s community in Whitby, it quadrupled the top estimate, going to a UK dealer at £6000.
