Furniture led the day, the bulk of which had come from local properties. Victorian mahogany saw success with the day’s top seller, a secretaire bookcase, bringing £1800 and an extending pull-out dining table was chased to £1300.

Moorcroft is still highly collectable and has been making consistently strong prices of late but there were no surprises at Ross-on-Wye.

Best of the ceramics was a Moorcroft Passion Flower charger at £210 and a pair of vases in the same pattern which took £100.

Twentieth century ceramics brought further success when a Charlotte Rhead large vase brought £100.
