Postcard Album Group for Charterhouse Auction

A group of postcard albums, which contains 100’s of cards also include some little gems of local interest, when they go under the Charterhouse hammer in Sherborne on Friday 22nd January.

“We sell literally thousands of postcards throughout the year in our busy programme of auctions, but we always have a careful look through each album. Some cards are worth under £1, but a good card such as the firemen outside The Three Choughs in Yeovil, will be highly sort after by collectors and dealers who would probably apportion £20 for such a card in an album.” Commented Richard Bromell. “The group of albums came from a Dorset client who inherited them from a relative. He took advantage of our free home visit service we offer clients looking to sell their antiques and collectables, as he was having a sort out before Christmas.”

The postcard depicts a long procession of firemen marching past The Three Choughs in Yeovil. Also in the albums there are other local early cards including East Chinnock and Sherborne, along with other greeting cards and a series of cards recording a Boat Train Crash at Salisbury. The albums are estimated to sell up to £150 when they are in the Charterhouse 900 lot auction of pictures, books, Beswick, Doulton, collectors’ items and antiques at The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne, Dorset. Viewing is on Wednesday 20th January 10-4 & Thursday 21st 10-7. Catalogues are available from the auctioneers £7 pp or you can look at the sale online at
