Art Nouveau Furniture makes top hammer price at McTear's, Glasgow! Yes indeed, it is often the medium of a piece of art or the material an antique is made of that makes a difference. It was certainly the case in The Furniture and Works Of Art Auction on Tuesday 24th March.

The top selling three lots were mahogany, copper, brass and gold! Specifically, the top lot was our wonderful Art Nouveau Shapland and Petter bedroom suite (lot 783). Inlaid with fine marquetry inlay, it sold for £2,000!

Next on the hit list was lot 716, a US navy divers helmet. It did rather well, with plenty of internet bidding from the US, and got the sale off to a great start, making £1,900.

The third highest selling lot was an intriguing eighteen carat gold mobile phone made by Vertu, lot 830. This is surely going to be a rare ‘antique of the future’ and one might class it as a ‘rare technology’ collectable. On the night it made £1,800.

Finally other hits were an ivory figure group (lot 761), which made £750, and a collection of live steam engines which made over £5,000! So, if you cannot decide what to bid on, bid on a fine material!
