IN Louis Taylor's (12.5% buyer's premium) 700-lot General and Victoriana Hanley outing on July 12, it was the small collectable entries that generated some of the top prices with a Beswick Lipizaner horse and rider fetching £245, despite extensive damage, and a silver cigar box commemorating Winston Churchill selling at £240.
Although there were no four-figure entries, the sale still bagged a £26,000 hammer total with buyers found for a reproduction oak dresser that managed £360 while a 19th century mahogany bureau with no feet was knocked down at £280.
