The highest prices came among the furniture, although the material was fairly routine. A 19th century set of ten mahogany dining chairs with bar backs and re-upholstered seats on turned legs climbed just above the top estimate to make £3200, a European rosewood table cabinet of indeterminate date with marquetry scenic panels to the ten drawer fronts and a soldier figure to the front of the central cupboard, 2ft wide by 191/2in high (63 x 50cm) took £2500, while a fine Edwardian mahogany tambour front pedestal writing desk with mahogany crossbanding and boxwood and ebony stringing to the drawers, 4ft wide by 2ft 4in deep (1.22m x 71cm) topped the day at £3500.
