As seen previously

Just  a quick note to point out two rather lovely things for sale, both of which have been mentioned here in the past.

One is the wonderful Design for Death by the equally wonderful Barbara Jones, which has appeared on eBay for a very reasonable £20.

And on a Buy It Now, at that.  I would, if we didn’t already own it.

It’s even more of a bargain when you know that this rather battered edition of English Fairs and Markets went for £63 last week.

So get in there quick.

Meanwhile in Surrey, this has appeared.

padden folio from surrey auction

Not apparently special until you read the description.

Percy and Daphne Padden, folio containing a collection of pencil sketches and watercolours, including an original poster design `Rolling Hills` and an illustration, `Carnival`.

The estimate is £100-200, which would make it a total bargain for any Padden fan out there.   It’s lot 1583 in a gigantic sale at Lawrences of Bletchingley, but you can bid online via the Saleroom if you want.

Over and out.

    I found this on your site after I won the auction at Lawrences, I wondered why I had a couple of people bidding against me! There is some interesting stuff, if you want to see some of it let me know, and I’ll send some pics.
