Mallams first auction of the year in Cheltenham got off to a flying start with over 92% selling rate.

A William & Mary cabinet on stand sold for £2,400, despite needing a considerable amount of restoration. The picture section of the auction, the majority of them from a deceased estate in Bourton on the Water, received strong bidding. An 18th Century English School portrait exceeded its estimate of £100-200 to fetch £1100.

The jewellery and silver section had a large collection of gold from various properties. A group of gold and other coins all sold well above the estimates with a sovereign mint mark collection achieving £1350.

Even though it had extensive damage, a rare Turner pottery stirrup cup fetched £1400 to an overseas bidder. Another highlight from the ceramic section was one of the last lots of the auction. Lot 436, three Chinese plates, achieved a hammer price of £1500 against a modest £100-200 estimate.

The next sale in Cheltenham will be the Modern Living auction on 7th March.
