Flat tyre this morning. Catalogue deadline too, just to add to life’s rich tapestry.
If anyone wonders about the lengths I would go to not to change a wheel or finish a catalogue, then this blog post sets a bench-mark.
It was a busy sale week. Norman Rosenberg’s collection was a big draw and there was a terrific buzz in London. From my side, it was my third auction in three months and by the time I got home on Monday evening I could have spent the month in bed.
Our auction did very well – 92% sold and results were over the high estimate. A few instruments did very well indeed and I would sincerely like to thank everybody who participated. It shows a lot of faith in us and we are very aware of it in the office.
We launch our Amati Affordable sale this afternoon. It is a day early because we are heading into the Easter weekend. Ralph has been coming in astonishingly early to get on top of the photography. It is a source of constant surprise to me that the team are able to pull together an auction from nowhere.
Thank you again for bidding chaps. Please keep coming back, after this Amati Affordable, I think we have a single-owner collection in May and then another Specialist auction in June. And if I was a broken man in March, just wait until you see the state of me by June.
