Filled with many highlights, the standout lot in July’s Works of Art Auction was an impressive medal group awarded to Captain Robert Bruce Wallace. Spanning two world wars and including the DSO and Military Cross, this was bought by an Australian bidder for £6,500.
Alongside this, a Victorian silver and niello dirk sold for an impressive £3,000, whilst a boxwood dirk was picked up for an equally strong £2,200.
