Juke boxes became a statement of popular culture from the 1940’s when in the United States almost three quarters of records produced were played in them. In the 1950’s Nack, Schulze & Menke set up the NSM company to produce models in the American style to sell in Europe. They rapidly became very successful & are still producing models to this day. The example on offer is the NSM Prestige E 160 dating from 1977. The cabinet stands 53” high & 41” wide & is well stocked with 45 rpm vinyl discs of the time. Representing hours of fun for a “man cave” or similar bids of £500/700 are anticipated.

Books illustrated by the illustrious artist Arthur Rackham have long been in high demand. Undine by De La Motte Fouque was adapted by W.L. Courtenay & published in London in 1909 by William Heinemann. It contains 11 illustrations by Rackham & is in good order for its age, asking £160/200.

The artist & stage designer W. Stanley Moore was born in London in 1914. He was eminent for his designs in the glitzy post war period in the West End, when the likes of “Binkie” Beaumont were putting on many lavish productions. He painted widely across Europe with a distinctive style of ink & watercolour, exhibiting regularly at The Mall Galleries in London. He gifted two of his French landscapes as a wedding present to Princess Margaret & Lord Snowden. A substantial watercolour featuring a French provincial church viewed through a barn like structure measures 31” x 21” & is reasonably priced at £100/150.

For collectors of fine Scottish whisky is a bottle of The Macallan single malt, complete with original box. It was distilled in 1972 & bottled in 1990 & could see interest in the region of £1500/1800.


  Hello Everybody! Our next timed auction with Easylive will run from April 14th - 18th. The catalogue will be available to view on- line from April 9th. We are still taking in goods by appointment for this sale so please ring us on 01837 55592 if you have goods to consign

FIRST TIMED AUCTION OF 2021 VERY SUCCESSFUL UNDER VERY TRYING CIRCUMSTANCES!

Another 1200 lots were up for sale in our February Auction with the vast majority finding new homes with buyers throughout the length of Britain & further afield!

With the Saleroom closed to the Public due to the 3rd (& hopefully final) Lockdown the logistics of getting goods in & out are a major headache, with everything needing to be done contactless. Our sturdy new shed has proved to be a welcome packing station for buyers as well as our 3 vans which have also acted in a “Click & Collect” capacity.

One of the most keenly contested items in the sale was a Mountfield tractor style mower in good order from a house clearance in Cornwall which well exceeded expectations when selling for £900. An oak cased Admiral Fitzroy style barometer also sold well at £155. A small pair of iron recumbent lion figures proved so popular that the winning bidder drove all the way from Salisbury to collect them- she was a dealer so the journey was allowed!

Our next Sale will be in early April depending on the virus circumstances- we will announce the date on our website, on easylive & our Facebook page when we confirm it.

Please contact us as soon as possible to book appointments to bring in further lots.  You will need to have adequate capacity for remote unloading onto a designated vehicle & please bring a list of lots & any reserves required.

Other notable prices included: Small granite bird bath £140… Vintage iron safe £150… Victorian brass desk set £95… Deco silver cigarette case £75… 9ct gold cufflinks £95… early 20th Century postcard album £125… Bulls head wall plaque £160… retro Maples cabinet £185… Victorian mahogany buffet £155 …

Established over 80 years ago, Okehampton Auctions has a long history and association with the town.

Traditionally held in the Market Hall in the centre of town, the Auction moved to its permanent site at Fatherford in June 2007, due to the redevelopment of the Market Hall into a cinema.

With traffic and parking in the town centre having become an increasing problem over recent years the ample parking and easy access to the edge of town auction room has been a real bonus to our customers.
Our auctions are held regularly throughout the year, with goods in all categories being taken in throughout the month by appointment.
Each auction has between 800 - 1000 lots. Outside lots, garden effects & tools are sold first, then small items including china, glass, collectables, silver, jewellery and pictures are sold followed by furniture, furnishings, household goods and miscellanea.
We are happy to give free advice and estimates to our customers and to help with setting suitable reserve prices where relevant.
Our Auctions are featured in the Western Morning News Antiques supplement on the Saturday prior to each sale.

The viewing takes place from 10am- 1pm Monday 12p.m. - 6.p.m. on the Tuesday and from 8.30a.m. on the day of the sale, with the sale commencing at 10 a.m. Our auctions are sold at around 200 lots per hour.

Goods can be paid for and collected during the sale and until 6p.m. on sale day and between 10a.m. - 2p.m. on the Thursday. If these times are not convenient for collection we can offer other slots by appointment in the following few days.
Payments to our vendors are sent out by First Class Post on the Friday of the week following the sale, provided that the purchasers payments have been cleared through our Bank.

Our commission rates are: Vendors 15% (No VAT) Apart from mixed boxed lots which have an additional charge of £1 per lot from March 4th sale 2020 onwards
                                     
                                              Buyers 15% (N0 VAT)
