Two becomes one and life goes on

Shortened sale in Leyburn produces busy saleroom and strong results especially for furniture

Condensed into one day instead of the usual two, the Summer Sale at Tennants (20% buyer’s premium) nevertheless provided a bird’s eye view of the middle market which these triannual ‘fine’ auctions at Leyburn traditionally offer.

On the figures alone – 83% of the 987 lots got away, bringing a hammer total of £1.1m – the July 15 sale provided comforting evidence that life goes on after the Brexit referendum of June 2016.

“The saleroom had never been busier,” said auctioneer Jeremy Pattison.

Paintings and jewellery boosted the total, as did the day’s top seller, a 1928 Louis XIV-style Steinway concert grand.

In a cream and polychrome case painted with musical trophies and floral swags raised on a gilt gesso base, it was offered with a matching stool and sold to a UK private buyer comfortably above estimate at £36,000.

More familiar territory, however, also proved fertile.
