GORRINGES AUCTIONS HAD A SUCCESSFUL SALE

WHEN AN AUCTION HAS QUALITY PAINTINGS, THEY DO SELL

NORMAN WILKINSON SOLD FOR 4400 PLUS COMMISSIONS

 

THUS LHERMITTE MADE 19,000, BOUDIN 24,000 AMONG THE TOP NAMES. THE LEPHO PAINTING REMAINED UNSOLD BUT THE ESTIMATE OF 20-30,000 FOR SUCH A SMALL SIZE PAINTING OF HIS WAS JUST A BIT TOO HIGH.

THE BARGAIN PAINTING WE USED TO INFORM THE PUBLIC OF THE SAME AUCTION BY NORMAN WILKINSON SOLD FOR 4400 POUNDS ON AN ESTIMATE OF 1800-2500 POUNDS.

AMONG THE OTHER BRITISH ART WE REALLY LIKE BUT KNEW WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BUY WERE THE PAIR OF OIL PAINTINGS BY HENRY SCOTT, THE MARINE ARTIST, WHICH SOLD FOR 2400 AND 2200 EACH , THUS MAKING THIS 35 X 50 CM PAINTINGS SELLING AT 4600 PLUS COMMISSIONS AND VAT.

THIS WAS A GREAT SALE FOR GORRINGES AUCTIONS AND A STEP FORWARD FOR A COUNTRY AUCTION WITH HISTORY ON ITS SIDE.
