One of the highlights of this auction is an exceptionally rare 1941 Wurlitzer Peacock jukebox imported to the UK to entertain American troops during WWII and one of only nine examples believed to exist within the UK. It is estimated to realise between £12,000 to £15,000.


Also in our catalogue is a rare late 19th century Canadian Canoe Company of Peterboro Ontario cedar and copper stud canoe, bearing maker's plaques, 14ft long, 12" draft and 28" beam. This is a mostly original and sympathetically repaired canoe restored by Belaugh Boat Yard in Norfolk who noted their repair was mainly a few dings, replaced foredeck and epoxy coating the hull, presented now in very good condition and sold with a pair of oars which has been estimated at £1000 - £1500.


We have a large collection of miner’s lamps in this sale from the estate of Alan Piggott. This circa 1880-1910 Davy miner's safety lamp, probably by E. Thomas & Williams, height 23.5cm, with Thorne Colliery tally no. 015 is a fine example and is expected to reach £250 - £300.


A part of the Toys section, there is a substantial quantity from the Jack Tempest collection including an early 20th century German Bing tinplate clockwork model of a torpedo ship, with trailer, supplied with key, length 102cm, as seen on page 107 of 'Collecting Tin Toys' by Jack Tempest which should achieve £400 - £600.
