An elegant Art Deco Emerald & Diamond Ladies Ring attracted several online bidders, realising over £3,000 when the hammer dropped.  As did a stunning Victorian Ray Star Diamond Brooch, selling to the internet for over £1,900.  A classical Emerald and Diamond Crescent Brooch and an Art Deco Emerald and Diamond Clasp / Clip sold to a London buyer for £1,300 and £1,500 respectively.

A pair of impressive, floor standing Cast Bronze Figures of Stags, drew interest online and in the room for £1,200, with a smaller version of the “Monarch of the Glen” realising over £480.  Other popular pieces with competitive bidding included an Antique Shell Collage, estimated at £40 – £60 and sold for £380 and a Georgian Style Mahogany Overmantel Mirror, formerly housed in Floors Castle, sold for twice its estimate, realising over £300.

Chinese pieces continued to prove popular with Chinese bidders. A Pair of Chinese Kangxi Style Blue and White Pottery Vases with Covers had a market estimate of £50 – £70, however several online bidders brought the final price to over £500.  A Chinese Famille Verte Oviform Vase with Cover sold for 3 times its estimate for £380.
