Carl Willows almost taken aback by a tremendous crowd

Norfolk, UK - "It's all very positive at the moment," Carl Willows said after the February architectural salvage sale at Gaze's in Diss, "both for the trade and private buyers. We had a tremendous crowd - I was almost taken aback. At the bygones sale in January after getting up early to brush the snow off everything we had a really good turnout despite the weather."

The architectural sale was 73 percent sold with the top lot being a 3,000 sundial, billed as compo but believed to be carved Portland stone, which sold privately to a large local house. Most of the stained and leaded glass sold to a Canadian enthusiast at moderate prices. All the Kenrick knockers remaining from a collection which has appeared at recent Gaze sales finally were also sold.

The only disappointment appears to have been York stone which took a dip at this sale with the top quality stuff failing to sell, and second quality bringing about 50sqyd with batches of good shapes reaching 60-70.

The upcoming modern design sale on 9th March features a private collection of C20th art, but no longer any of that fabulous 1950s-1980s rosewood mahogany furniture which Gaze has elected not to sell due to CITES issues.

The next architectural salvage sale be held Saturday 27th April
