Amongst the paintings a new auction record was established for Lawrence Leifchild Toynbee (1922-2002) known for his paintings of football, cricket and rugby amongst other sports.  The £8,350 spent by a private collector to secure the painting entitled ‘The Rugby Match’ eclipsed the previous record of £5,000 established at Christies for  ‘Practice in the Nets’.

 

In a first for Clevedon Salerooms Quarterly Specialist Sale a Modern Design Furniture Section attracted a new breed of collectors with some good results for Danish and British mid 20th Century design.  A Maurice Burke for Arkana seven-piece ‘Tulip’ design dining suite sold for £1,590.

 

As the cold nights approach the sale finished with a Wine and Spirits section.  Temperatures rose when a bottle of 1966 Laphroaig single malt at 48.9% proof guaranteed to keep the frost at bay sold for £540.
