What's This ? New Melba On The Saleroom (Not SAS !)

Post by Gmemg » Tue Jun 12, 2018 5:22 am

It's very interesting to those of us who follow the ups and downs of the Auction world that places such as SAS (or Sad Asshole Sales as Proudie's woeful Saleroom is known ) claim to be THE Specialists in the sale of Talking machines when the evidence of their sales is that they have some terrible JUNK and i don't just mean the records but also the machines most of which seem to be dealer's rejects or just junk from Sad CLPGS Farts very damp sheds when MOST other Auctions on "the Saleroom" seem to get better condition and much much rarer items and because of the Internet they got International prices for them too

So it comes as no surprise that well regarded (but VERY Pricey) Tennants of Leyburn (yorkshire) have some interesting machines in including a NEW MELBA machine !

Not without it's faults as the case needs some work and the G & T Horn has been soldered into the elbow it's still better than anything Proudie's junk sales have had in a LONG time - it might cost you a few bob to find a mahogany horn & repair the case but it's still a nice machine

Tenants used to have some very fine things and I've attended a couple of their auctions in the past, but boy! those prices! They had unworking musical boxes fetching 5000 at one point.

they get ASTONISHING money for items and i mean astonishing ! i don't know why that is when most UK auctioneers are virtually begging for bids on perfectly genuine antique furniture & paintings they start at many times the usual top bid and go UP i cannot imagine dealers buy there and that's before the comm
