Quite frankly, having attended the saleroom on both days, I have very fond memories, it was certainly a most memorable centenary and to actually be able to leave the capital with a handful of medals was simply a bonus, a lovely week.
All of the QSAs in the Thursday sale have an 'x' against the lot number which means an additional 5% is added to the hammer price. The effect of this is that a lot purchased for £100 will end up costing £129.
The last thing us colonials need is an ‘x’ beside any lot to make the purchase any more expensive mainly due to the exchange rate. I have been quiet on the purchases from the UK for that reason. Decisions, decisions, have ago at SPINK or wait for Nobles?
I remember a poster being available when I was at university entitled 'Decisions, decisions, decisions' showing a picture of a woman, a sports car and a bottle of wine (looking back it was a very sexist poster). I was thinking we should replace those images with three QSAs
