Norfolk, UK - A c1850 shepherds hut with shaped sides, complete with bed, table and cupboard with its stove on cast iron Gothic wheels, sold for 10,500 at Gaze's rural and domestic bygones sale last Saturday. Another mid-Victorian shepherd's hut 'for restoration' went for 750. A set of four shepherd's huts cast iron wheels managed 400 even without the axles.

A total of 1,039 lots were sold with a seemingly larger than usual number reaching substantial prices. Yes, the sale was of a higher quality possibly, but even so some large runs of smart prices were evident. Among several coppers a 27inch copper copper made 400. Several Kenrick door porters were offered of which the top lot was an original Mr Punch at 60. There were two collections of Thorley feeds and Watson soaps advertising lots, of which an enamel sign 'Thorley's Food - I'm Off For Some' and pig illustration fetched 1,400 and a Watson's Matchless Cleanser made 320. A superb 36ins high Muratti's cigarettes cabinet with mirrored pediment sold for 2,500. Top lot in an extensive and well-supported tools section was a Norris 54 plane, 22ins long, which sold for 1,000.

Upcoming sales at Gaze's include Modern Design 9th June, Architectural Salvage 30th June and Bygones 28th July.
