This auction will include collectors' sections of books and militaria during Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday, as usual, will be ceramics, silver, jewellery, pictures and furniture. We finally have the CITES Article 10 to sell the very stylish 1960's rosewood dining suite and sideboard.


Within the miltaria section we are offering a rare comprehensive collection of 4 photograph albums containing about 900 pictures showing the 1940 Blitz damage to buildings in Manchester - iconic buidlings including the Cathedral, Royal Exchange, Free Trade Hall, Infirmary .... 800 civilians lost their lives during 2 nights of bombing. Few people have memories of those terrible times which makes these images so important
