Fairs & Auctions: Gaze Architectural Salvage & Statuary
"It was a good sale despite the sunshine" Carl Willows said, referring to the architectural salvage & statuary sale at T W Gaze on 20 October 2007. The top lots included 200sq yds of York flagstones selling to a developer for £140 per sq yd, which Carl Willows no longer considers to be a record at Gaze's. In the statuary section the top sale was a 'bronze study of a young girl' selling for £1300, whilst the pair of reconstituted grotesque birds sold for £200. A massive 68inch diameter hemispherical eighteenth century washing machine known as a 'copper copper' that apparently originated as an industrial tool from a cheese making shop sold well, fetching £1200.

The next Gaze sale is the Rural and Domestic Bygones Sale on Saturday 17th November, which will typically include Victorian household equipment, kitchenware, boxes, ironware, architectural implements, tools etc.
