A very rare Allcock Ariel reel with its original calf leather case sold for a wholly unexpected £6600 at Westenhanger Auctioneers (20% buyer’s premium) in Stanford, near Ashford, on April 13.
The Unventilated Roller-Back Aerial
was produced between 1912 and 1925 for sale at Forest of Kelso
rather than as a part of Allcock's general catalogue.
