The Private View for the January 2016 Fine Sale was a busy evening with a good number of guests attending to browse more than a thousand lots of fine art. They were guided through some of the expected highlights by fine art expert Andrew Thomas in his talk on the contents of the auction as well as given an update on the results of the previous highly successful sale.

The Lord Mayor of Exeter, Olwyn Foggin and her consort Gerald Foggin, attended the evening and were shown some of the many interesting lots on offer.

The evening was kindly sponsored by Charles Stanley.
