ANTIQUE PERSONALITIES COME TO CREWKERNE

ANTIQUE PERSONALITIES COME TO CREWKERNE.....
 
There was a lively atmosphere at Lawrences Auctioneers in Crewkerne recently when BBC's Celebrity Cash In The Attic featured popular Exmoor wildlife presenter Johnny Kingdom. The high-spirited presenter of "Johnny's New Kingdom" and "A Year on Exmoor" amused the room full of regular buyers by auctioning one of his own lots on the rostrum to raise money for his chosen charity and, in an attempt to lure extra bids from the ladies, offered kisses to the winning bidder!
 
His ten lots raised £735 and even Lawrences' saleroom manager, Tony Lacey (pictured, right, with Johnny) failed to escape a hug from the delighted TV personality.
 
The BBC will be returning to the Crewkerne Saleroom on Wednesday 11th February to record an episode of the popular antiques programme "Bargain Hunt" where you can you meet Tim Wonnacott and Tony Lacey in person!


BARGAIN HUNT AT THE SALEROOMS

The BBC came to Crewkerne last week and filmed three episodes of the popular daytime programme "Bargain Hunt" at Lawrences' Auction Rooms. Teams had purchased items from dealers and antique fairs in Berkshire and hoped to sell them for a profit in the saleroom. Presenter Tim Wonnacott (right), a former colleague of Lawrences' auctioneer Richard Kay (left), was delighted to see that crowds had gathered to watch items as diverse as an Ivory Coast wooden catapult, a pair of walnut candlesticks from Viscount Linley's furniture workshop and a pair of Copeland wall plaques come under the hammer. Luckily, there was keen bidding for every lot and the contestants were delighted to make handsome profits on a 9 carat gold cigar cutter made by Alfred Dunhill (£120), a carved ivory snuff box of Scottish origin (£85) and a Gothic revival mantle clock (£110) as well as many other lots. Richard uses a gavel once owned by Elton John that Tim bought for him when he was training Richard to be an auctioneer over twenty years ago.
