Introducing Dartmoor Auctions: Quirky Lots aplenty at Chagford Quarterly Auction

3:03 pm, MARCH 28, 2018


Experienced auctioneer David Force and the Dartmoor Auctions team will guide bidders through close on 600 lots at their April 2018 sale at Chagford’s Jubilee Hall.

There will be strong interest in an Edwardian Magic Lantern Projector in good condition (estimate £175) and football fans will find an irresistible collectors prize – the 1966 World Cup Tournament Programme (estimate £40).

There is always something for everyone at a sale that mainly comprises of recently cleared Devon houses, although how the traffic lights got there will be an ongoing mystery!  There are a pair – fully working and offered at an estimate of £125 each – ideal for a quirky restaurant, garden patio or man cave.

Lovers of Star Trek will find two superb classic Steen Ostergard Swedish design chairs in need of a little refurbishment and hence the very low estimate of £150 for the pair. If more gentile seating is your thing, then a pair of beautifully crafted claw and ball foot chairs from the recently sold Holy Street Manor in Chagford are expected to fetch a figure in the region of £300.

Lovers of Welsh history will enjoy the selection of Traditional Hand Knitted Welsh blankets (estimate £40) and history buffs will no doubt be bidding fiercely for a Declaration of The 13 United States Of America dated 1776 (estimate £25).

But there are also smaller and more quirky lots – a Hornby train set (estimate £50) and a modern limited edition Michael Jackson print (estimate £100) as well as a Charles Dicken’s first edition of a Tale Of Two Cities (estimate £40).

The full catalogue will be available to view online approximately one week prior to the sale – to be notified when it’s available, please register your interest.
