I attended and saw a few members from this forum. For some items prices were very strong and I had lot 226 in my sights, the blue and green tear vases. They sold for ?400 hammer! A great price but somewhat above my target price. It was a wonderful opportunity to see some of these earlier pieces in the flesh. It was also an opportunity to buy some of the rarer pieces. The sale did include a few Baxter pieces and these generally did ok with some lots going for current retail prices. The commission rate at 18% inclusive was also very competitive. I packed two large boxes with bubble wrap and came away with only two glasses. Still, it was well worth it. On to the next one!

Hi Andrew
Well done on your two glasses. Anything is better than nothing. I managed to get a few things myself, but wished I'd got more now.

Sorry I missed you there. If I'd known, I would have come and said hello.

The pair of tear vases went quite cheap in my opinion. Rarely seen and very finely made.

Nice little cafe there too.

Felt very frustrated as a poor pensioner has to watch his piggy bank.

Even more frustrated that when I got home an outstanding order was fulfilled which would have let me spend more!!

Look at my other thread to see what I have bought for less than ?500!
