Crowds Visit this Year’s Lincolnshire Show Golding Young Stand

25th July 2013

Crowds of people at this year's Lincolnshire Show had the chance to view of variety of antiques at the Golding Young & Mawer stand.

The items, all due to come under the auctioneer's hammer at forthcoming sales, included paintings, furniture, silverware, ceramics and tribal art.

The promotional stand was manned by Richard Plant, consultant auctioneer and valuer with Golding Young & Mawer together with colleagues from the Grantham and Lincoln sale rooms.

"This was my first visit to the show," he said. "And I really enjoyed it. The weather was fantastic and attendance high."

A picture of a spaniel with a pheasant by Henry Wilkinson and a still-life painting of fish by Henry Leonidas Rolfe proved to be very popular at the event, as were Beswick figures of cattle and horses.

The Lincolnshire Show is one of the largest and most prestigious agricultural county shows in the UK, attracting thousands of people from all over the Midlands.

This year's event was attended by Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, and Mike Catt, ex-England Rugby player and coach. It included a display by the Red Arrows and a fly past by the Battle of Britain Memorial Dakota.

Richard said: "It really was a very successful event for us.

"It gave us the opportunity to promote our work and explain our professional services to the public and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to everyone who came to look around the stand."

Next year's show will be the 130th, and is due to take place on Wednesday, June 18th and Thursday, June 19th at the Lincolnshire Showground.
