March at McTear's

McTear’s have started off March well with the special auctions concluding yesterday with The Scottish Contemporary Art auction that had a vast selection of unique and eye catching pieces – perfect way to end a successful week of interesting and exciting auctions.

The auctions commenced on Tuesday with rare and collectable objects from Asia including China, Japan and India going under the hammer in The Asian Works of Art Auction. After an estimation of just £100 - £200, this stunning Chinese Cloisonne Censer sold for a whopping £2800! 

Lot 175 
Bidders would also not be struggling to tell the time on Tuesday with our auction of clocks and timepieces taking place. Interest was high in this auction and this Fine George III Ebonised Bracket Clock sold for a fantastic £8000 after an estimation of just £2000. 

Lot 296
For the whisky enthusiast among you we had our ever popular Rare and Collectable Whisky, Wine and Port Auction that saw many enticing bottles go under the hammer. In particular, this beautiful 25 year old Macallan in a crystal decanter reached £1900 in the auction.

Lot 905
One for the ladies in our Jewellery Auction is this glistening unmounted diamond (2.12 carats) that sold for £6900... There will be one lucky person receiving this! 

Lot 1105
The Scottish Contemporary Art Auction brought the auctions to an end nicely with lots of attractive lots going under the hammer. Fitting for a Sunday, this Graham McKean 'Sunday Afternoon' pastel on paper sold for £260. 

This is just a few of what went under the hammer in last weeks special auctions. To see other auctions, lots and the hammer prices, have a look at our website
