19th January 2023

Our Toys, Postcard and Cigarette card auction was held yesterday on the 18th January 2023 broadcast live on EasyLive with internet, commission and telephone bidders aplenty! We had an exciting array of items available, totalling 703 lots, and we started off the bidding with the cigarette cards.

The cigarette card section was ever popular with many lots achieving above their original estimates. The most notable of these lots being lot 147 a Mackenzie 1902 Music Hall Artistes set, selling for £600, which had an original estimate of £400.

Lot 268 was a mixed lot estimated at £100 and selling for £564 and lot 289 sold for an impressive £1,110, with an original estimate of £500.

The later part of the sale continued to see some exciting bidding and played host to the model railways section. The Bachmann section proved ever popular with Lot 624 selling for £870, with an original estimate of £300 and showing that it’s not just the engines that are sought after!
