Auction not found or currently unavailable

As part of our next Antiques & Interiors Auction is a collection from the sleepy market town of Whitchurch, Shropshire and the home of a rather famous grassroots rock music venue, lots 1 - 73.  Behind the unassuming exterior of the Star Inn on Watergate Street is Percy's Cafe Bar, an Aladdin's cave of quirky, macabre and sometimes bizarre collectables, amassed by the owner Mark Dawson, the Percy's Cafe Bar collection goes under the hammer. 


Among the treasures selected are full tiger, leopard and lion skin rugs, a fez-wearing macaque, three human part skeletons, and even an archive of artwork by the infamous Ronnie Kray and Charles Bronson as well as furniture, paintings and other collectables. One of the star pieces, though, is a rare oak or ash double bed by Gillows of Lancaster, almost certainly to a design by the celebrated Bruce James Talbert (1838-1881) in a Gothic revival style.  The sale is sure to attract not only collectors of taxidermy, furniture and object d'art but also, it is hoped, those who know and love Percy's Cafe Bar and want to own a little piece of history from this extraordinary venue.
