ANOTHER RARE ANTIQUE DISCOVERED IN THE MEON VALLEY
Another local family were left stunned when an unusual stone figure, thought to be of the grand tour period, proved to be of an earlier date and sold at Hannam’s Auctioneers for £14,000 in their monthly three-day auction. Discovered when clearing out their relative’s house near Warnford, the family brought the 62cm high figure of a Roman male to Hannam’s saleroom in Selborne for a free valuation, without the thought that it would reach such a high total.
Director, Harry Hannam said after the sale “What a wonderful surprise for the family, to receive such a high amount for one item. It is always great to see customers reaction when they get told news like this, it makes the hard work worthwhile and gives us all the excitement for what is next to walk through our saleroom door. We wish the family all the best for the future, and we’re glad to put smiles on their faces.”
With over 2,750 items during their monthly three-day auction, and over 900 items in their monthly one-day silver and jewellery auction, the availability of affordable antiques and collectables are vast, with prices falling for as little as £5. With Christmas scarily approaching, Hannam’s monthly one-day auction offers buyers a great option to find not only bargains and rare and unique items within their Watches and Jewellery categories.
Hannam’s can also assist by providing a comprehensive professional probate valuation of an estate. They can take the worry out of your hands by helping you value an estate and settle the affairs. Their valuers will provide a professional researched detailed report following an appointment to attend the estate. Some insurers may require or recommend that you have a professional valuation document to support any claims for an item, should something unexpected happen and Hannam’s Auctioneers can offer these insurance valuations. Alternatively, you may wish for a formal valuation of items in your home to ensure you apply the correct insurance policy via the right provider.
Throughout the year Hannam’s will be hosting additional one day auctions in between their three-day monthly auctions. These will be available to view the day before and the morning of the sale, and as always, online. The next auctions shall be a one-day auction on 16th October, followed by a three-day auction on the 30th & 31st November & 1st December. For free valuations and consignment entries please visit their Selborne saleroom, or for further information please visit the website www.hannamsauctioneers.com or call the office on 01420511788.
