10/08/2012 : August Sale catalogue now online

London 2012 is over....

Adam Partridge Auctioneers would like to congratulate all medal winners at the London Olympics, especially gymnast Beth Tweddle who managed to finally win bronze in the uneven bars. This was the first time Team GB have won a female gymnastics medal since the team won a bronze at the 1928 Amsterdam games which was also the first time women were allowed to compete in gymnastics. A GB blazer, a painted diploma (awarded to medal winners), and a photograph depicting the team wearing their blazers belonging to Ada Smith, one of the team members, go up for auction on the 16th
and 17th August in the forthcoming Antiques and Fine Art sale.

You can view Ada’s historic items, as well as the rest of the catalogue, featuring over 1,500 lots, at
