Charterhouse collectors clocks and antiques auction features scale models

Two scale models, one of a 1922 Burrell road roller, the other of a Foden 1912 steam wagon are each estimated at £3,000-5,000 when they go under the Charterhouse hammer in Sherborne in their collectors, clocks and antiques auction on 14th March.

“These are some of the best scale models money can buy having been constructed to an extremely fine exhibition standard on a scale of ¾ in: 1ft.” Commented Richard Bromell. “The attention to detail is staggering such as the riveted and stayed copper boiler with scale fittings including gauge water protector and shut off cocks. They must have taken many months, if not longer, to complete each and will form the centrepiece of any collection.”

The next few months look to be a busy time for the Charterhouse team. First up is their 14th March sale which includes militaria, collectors’ items and clocks followed by their 12th April sale of classic cars, motorbikes and automobilia and the sale of pictures, decorative arts with a special section of sporting items, and they are now accepting further entries for all these auctions.
