Mixed bag of lots

Within the antiques and collectors' section there was a collection of stamps with unused face value in excess of £500, which was posted first class at £300.
There was also an early twentieth century ivory-turned handle gavel which was well contested returning £160
A 32in 1950s model pond yacht with rare braine steering sailed away at £110 and a delightful 18th century carved Bible box sold for £90.

Meanwhile, a cased taxidermy native red squirrel went nuts at three times its estimate selling for £90 and a rather unusual and well-presented 1950s cased spectacle frame display seeing its way clear at £70.The two guitars in the sale both hit the right notes, the first a kimbara acoustic guitar and case realised £55, and the second example an Obanez Andorra six string acoustic example with its hard carry case not far behind at £50.
A retro anglepoise lamp lit the room up at £50, with a collection of twenty various minerals gaining interest at £40, an 18 piece Royal Albert "Old Country Roses" service could only return £47, with an 80 piece Royal Doulton "Parasole" service not fairing much better at £50.
Looking in first class order was the pine banded travel trunk which got on its way at £45, with the three matching and graduating metal trunks returning £50, which was the same price achieved for the bronze trumpet playing figure. A large collection of fountain pens, ballpoints and propelling pencils were snapped up at £50 with an Art Deco French clock striking a balance at £40.
Bennick's next sale, at Summercourt, is on January 20.
