Antiques With Gary DonFeatures

The collectors’ market for Beswick animals has been disappointing recently and prices have been dropping. However when this rare Beswick bull was brought in to me for a valuation, I knew it was a special piece. 

It was entered into our special international online collectors’ auction and in spite of the fact that it had a small chip on its front hoof, it generated a huge amount of interest. All Beswick collectors are informed by email with a link to bid live on our auction.

Even I was surprised when this Beswick Beltie Galloway bull sold for £680. A belting price! 

This figure was brought to us by a customer in the hope that it was an original Clarice Cliff piece. However it is a reproduction copy of a Clarice Cliff style figure by Peggy Davies called ‘Afternoon Tea’. Its value is £40-60. If it had been an original 1920’s piece, it would have sold for over £1000.

Gold is at such a high price that this 18k gold pocket watch which used to sell between £300-500 is now worth £1000 plus.  How times change!
