At the sale on 19TH September to be held at Fakenham Racecourse, James & Sons are offering a very interesting selection of Antiques, Fine Art and Bygones.
Of particular interest is the Archie Scott Collection of Football Memorabilia including gold medals awarded to the player between 1917 and 1926 and photographs, programmes, badges and newspaper articles from his career with teams including Derby County, Fulham and Brentford. The latter undertook a European Tour just before WWII.
Another good selection – 150 lots – of Railwayana is offered, ranging from Station Signs to Lamps, Documents, Poster, Badges and Buttons, Nameplates, Pocket Watches and Whistles.
Good small collections of Fine Art and Paintings include works by well-known local artists: a 4’ x 3’ oil by J. Gooderidge entitled Harvest Horkey; and two oils on board by the late Ronald Crampton.
Among the selection of books are: an 1886 edition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures Underground; A 1927 First Edition of A.A. Milne’s Now We Are Six with decorations by Ernest H. Sheppard; and The Birds of America, from original drawings by John James Anderson, 1827.
A large selection of toys includes a vintage Mickey Mouse wooden child’s Rocker, manufactured by Lines Bros under their Tri-ang brand. Dated 1937, an identical version was acquired in January 2011 by the Victoria and Albert Museum for Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood.
