The hot weather deterred some bidders, but there was still a good attendance of buyers.

 Our bi-monthly sale of silver and jewellery was as good as ever with most lots going to room bidders. The entry of Murano chandeliers unfortunately did not generate as much interest as expected no doubt due to few new builds being big enough to accommodate them.

 Principal prices paid for some of the better Lots in the sale follow: Bold text items are illustrated.
