The Elderberry Gatherers (FS24/292) by Myles Birket Foster (1825-1899) sold in Exeter
        for £11,000 during the Autumn 2014 Fine Art Sale. Daniel Goddard, Head of the Picture Department, reviews the fine pictures sold in the Autumn 2014 Fine Sale at the end of October 2014, noting the trend away from Victorian pictures towards 20th Century British Art, particularly art from the Post War period.

A Watcombe terracotta bust of Alexandra Princess of Wales. Nic Saintey discusses an enigmatic piece of Torquay Pottery depicting Alexandra, Princess of Wales (who was the longest serving Princess of Wales).
