A collection of Beatrix Potter, Bunnykins and other teaware was the surprise of the day which sold at £2,600 to a local buyer in the room against strong internet and telephone bidding. The internet interest was much stronger this month with buyers from Australia, USA, China, Vietnam and throughout Europe, but it was still many of our regular buyers who were eventually the purchasers.
