So with that in mind we’re pleased to introduce a new auction guide to show you some of the highlights coming up over the next few weeks. Of course, we’ll still be covering auction reports in Collectors Gazette but this is intended as a quick and handy preview, which we hope you’ll find informative.

Tuesday, 18th September – Chiswick Auctions

One of the highlights is lot 182, which includes two penny tin toys (a pleasure boat on wheels and a nodding elephant pulling a cart) made in Germany during the 1900s. They’re estimated at £100-200. Also of note is lot 182, a Roulet Decamps clockwork walking cat, with mouth movement and meowing sound, estimated at £200-300.
