Sale barometer shows ‘steady’

Wide-ranging tri-annual North Yorkshire auction indicates market strengths

If, as generally accepted, the tri-annual fine art sales at Tennants (20% buyer’s premium) can be regarded as something of a barometer of the middle market, the outlook following the autumn sale on November 18 appears rather more steady than the Brexit nervousness talked about elsewhere in the economy.

Offered during two simultaneous sales at the Leyburn rooms, the 965 lots covering the range of dealing and collecting enjoyed an 82% selling rate, bringing a total of £1.6m with successes across the board.


English furniture sold solidly enough, particularly the more practical pieces. Two mahogany dining tables from the third quarter of the 19th century were offered in time for big family gatherings over Christmas.

One triple-pillar D-end example with three extra leaves, giving a length of 12ft 11in (3.93m), nearly tripled the top estimate at £5800. The other, of rounded rectangular form extending to 15ft 10in (4.82m) with six extra leaves, took £4200 against a £2000-3000 estimate.
