Gaze of Diss Norfolk, Architectural & Garden Antiques auction on 31st May led by expert Carl Willows. The sale will include 892 lots of garden statuary architectural salvage and antiques.

Footnotes: "It was a cracking sale," said Carl Willows, "and the sunshine didn't put anyone of. The buyers where predominately private and there was a very high percentage sold, although, the exact percentage has not been worked out yet. York stone was up to it's mark selling well. The top lots included a cooper domed lead clad cupola (42" square base x approx 92" high) which we sold in a previous sale five years ago, It made its money back selling for £1100.00. A modern cast iron gazebbo sold for £2006.00, and a Jadeite bath fetching £2000.00 where amongst the top lots. Also, statuary sold well as did garden benches and tables. Basic building materials were selling but not at fantastic money. All in all it was a good sale," said Carl Willows.
