Trademark, 18 Berliners, Berliner Record cabinets in Tooveys !

Post by Gmemg » Sun May 06, 2018 9:52 am

There's a very good auction coming up soon - A Trademark complete, a pair of Berliner Record cabinets, and one lot with 18, yes 18 Berliners & other 7" records in it and another with a lot of small records including the Queen Victoria & Edward V11 Berliners in it ! astonishing , Is it a Proudie sale at SAS ?

Why of course Not - only a fool would put items of such interest in a "Ringed" Proudie sale ! (although unkind persons have suggested that all these items vanished from the Roger Thorne collection and that this is the preferred saleroom of "the Leading dealer" i cannot confirm this !)

MAKE THE RING PAY !

These are in Toovey's Sale

here's the Trademark

Well, what an interesting sale !

Some astonishing results there -

the "Trademark" made 1800 + comm = £2329

The Gram / Phono thing (a lot more complete than the one amazingly for sale this week in scotland) made £1100 = £1423

The 2 Berliner cabinets made £2300 + Comm = £2976

the lot with the 2 comm Berliners & the 5" Berliner made £2600 = £3364

18 berliners made £ 700 = £905

and some assorted bits went to a 'phone bidder (with a Wig ?) for £420

what a lot of money - i spoke to an American collector this morning and he said (amongst much else) :

"UK Collectors & Dealers are just F****G Asswipes they ain't got no guts and no cash so they won't pay that's why they have the CLPGS Auctions so they can knock it all out cheap "

he may be correct on all points - i was delighted to run them though !

those berliners were about £38 per disc which I don't think is bad, but 38% com! what a rip off. I genuinely think they'd have made more were it not for that.

when you put it like that it's not too bad BUT with that comm i know a LOT of people were put off bidding by that and the generally unhelpful attitude of the Auctioneers

I viewed the sale and watched the auction and actually BOUGHT items ! i didn't buy any of the gramophone stuff but did buy 19th c Furniture very well indeed, items which 20 years ago would have cost many many times what i paid including the Comm and it might be argued that :

"Why buy in a falling market"

but i need good quality Antique furniture for some of the properties i let so it's well worth while and didn't cost me a lot - a lot less for fine quality hand made furniture than for mass produced gramophone stuff !
