It is great testament in these challenging times to everyone at Golding Young & Mawer that sales (all be it online only) continue. The 17th June 2020 offering at Lincoln is comprised of the usual array of quality items as seen in sales earlier in the year when words such as furlough were confined to dictionary entries.

The sale illustrates the point that we continue to provide an excellent, high quality array of items, whilst ensuring the safety of our clients, being the only accredited firm for miles around also rubber stamps the benefits we continue to offer both buyers and sellers in these difficult times.

Things kick off with a fine glass collection of Victorian and later oil lamps and  a pair of late 19th century table lustres that tick boxes for quality, condition and style.

The sale itself is dovetailed with quality and with a fine collectable section headed by several stamp offerings, from world early 20th century, mixing many Commonwealth countries, a fine array of British Victorian and later philately, with many Penny Reds and the appearance even of a Penny Black, as well as an  array of different collecting angles from first day covers to collectable stamps and so on.

Actually, all bases are covered collectables wise. The Lincoln Militaria Sale on the same day commencing at 7pm, takes care of a fine array of medals and related rare items, some of which from the personal belongings of a certain Guy Penrose Gibson, VC and in the earlier sale there are coins and lots of them, from collectable packs to several fine cases set of commemorative silver medallions and some gold examples too.

The jewellery also ticks many boxes for both quality and quantity with a fabulous private collection of dress rings which will certainly appeal to many.

Pottery collectors are well catered for with a fine selection of early Doulton figures, Moorcroft and Poole to name but three areas, furniture also covers metres and metres with the usual suspects from Georgian to the current day to be found, with particular strong areas in lounge furniture. Now is a good time to purchase high quality second hand and it is my advice to do so before the prices sky rocket as one thing is for sure with the Pandemic, fewer options to buy new are to be found after all who wants too queue for five hours to buy a piece of new Swedish furniture that will probably be in pieces quicker than it took to buy?

The Lincoln auction is on Wednesday 17th June at 10:00am it is live online on our platform GY Live and the Saleroom.com. Viewing is by appointment only and can be requested by contacting our offices.
