Sale Notes

‘It is almost impossible not to get nostalgic when viewing the 1300 plus lots on offer in the next two day auction of Sporting & Collectors Items on the 16th & 17th May at Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s salerooms in Exeter. Most people will be transported back to their childhood era by either a collection of Dinky toys like the military group in original boxes (SC26/814) or for the younger generation the original Star Wars Millennium Falcon (SC26/1180). Even the large single owner collection of Action Man figures will strike a chord with many people due to the current #Epic advertising campaign. There are also a number of more traditional West county pursuits represented in the sale with a selection of fishing and shooting related collectables like the Hardy Fortuna reel (SC26/307) and the leather bound cartridge case (SC26/108). As well as arms and armour there is a section of the more glamorous textiles that include designers like Jean Muir and Diane von Furstenburg, also a collection of Victorian and later buttons. Collecting seems to be an eccentric pastime for the British as a nation but as the live internet bidding will no doubt prove on the day, many, many people around the world have eclectic tastes when it comes to collecting either Guinness memorabilia or stamps and postcards.’
