Among the highlights is a selection of English delftware including a c.1700 Adam and Eve charger bought in 1963 from a Kensington dealer for £24.

Early furniture features such as a 17th century mural livery cupboard, priced in the region of £7000, and an Elizabethan linenfold chest ticketed at around £4000.

A group of early needlework is also for sale from the private collection of a deceased dealer and includes a small Charles II stumpwork picture priced at £2500.
