Nye Furniture Auction Review

The sale of the second part of the Nye Furniture Collection on 25th October 2013 in Honiton immediately followed two frantic days of selling in Exeter as part of the Autumn 2013 Fine. The Honiton auction offered a select sale of furniture and saw some good prices on the day.

The sale had some unusual items of furniture as illustrated by this Victorian rosewood safe by S Mordan & Co (SF19/1278) that sold for £1,400 during the auction.
