It exceeded expectations of £300-500 to sell at £10,000 (plus 15% buyer’s premium).

Standing 12in (30cm) high, the ‘apprentice piece’ was part of the North York Moors estate of a former collector-dealer.

Despite some condition issues that included breaks to a leg and an arm, it retained its original leather upholstered drop-in seat.

The sale took place on  on October 25.
