Items from the estate of the late Dame Elisabeth Frink (1930-93) are included in the Charterhouse sale in Sherborne, Dorset, on November 14-15. The items, all in barn storage for several years, come via her son from her marriage to her first husband Michel Jammet.

“It is quite an eclectic selection, as you would expect from a family of artists,” says auctioneer Richard Bromell.

A floor-standing painted wood candelabrum is guided at £100-150.
