Cracking architectural sale at Gaze's

Diss, Norfolk UK - "IT was a cracking sale," Carl Willows said, after the architectural salvage auction at T W Gaze on 27 January 2007. "There were new trade and private bidders, and new American interest. Plenty of people and buying across the board."

A gritstone plinth with tapered panels to each side incorporating a swag on its 20" square base - overall 41" high. Sold for £1,320 (est £350) to southern English trade.

Victorian rubbed and moulded brick three-centred arch with stepped 'Art School' gable. Sold £580 (est £600) to Canadian trade.

Above: Suite of forty foot plus of wall top railing with two pairs of gates, 105ins and 122ins wide opening. Sold £650 (est £400)

Top lot was a 19thC carved stone grotesque which was pushed beyond its £250 estimate by bidding fron three countries which sold for £2,860 to a first-time Welsh private against London underbidding.

At T W Gaze this Saturday 10th Feb is another James Bassam Modern Design sale, and the next bygones sale on Sat 24th Feb will feature a rare cream and brown stoneware milk churn, estimated at £400.
