The jewellery also proved buoyant with several ceramics attaining good results too.

        July 2016 at our salerooms in Exeter, Devon. Christopher Hampton, Managing Director, takes a quick look at the furniture on offer in the upcmoing Summer 2016 Fine Sale, which has a larger than usual collection of Eastern carpets and rugs to tempt buyers with.
A lustrous Cambrian cow creamer from 1810. Nic Saintey writes about cow creamers, covering their introduction in the first half of the Eighteenth Century through to their fall from grace, implicated in the cholera epidemics that affected Sunderland and East London from the early 1830s.
A diving helment from the Tony and Yvonne Pardoe Collection, which will be auctioned
        in June 2016. We have exploited the Internet and social media to generate considerable
        interest in this niche collection some six months before it is due to be sold. Brian Goodison-Blanks reflects on how the Internet is changing the fundamental dynamics of the auction market. While there is no doubt that online technologies have been highly disruptive, the auctioneer has not fallen in the digital age. Indeed, by embracing the new technologies, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood are reaching many more buyers world-wide, often for items with very niche appeal.
Front Cover of The Lot Magazine Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood publishes an occasional magazine called The Lot covering our recent news and saleroom hightlights. It also provides interesting insights into our work. The current and previous editions can be downloaded in PDF format or read online as a page-by-page electronic magazine.
