Brompton's - march - lot 61

Recommended Posts

Any thoughts on lot 61 of the latest bromptons auction ?  Sold previously(lot 56) in the october sale..

If my memory is correct, it went away for 17000 pounds, almost six times the low estimate, wich seemingly contradicts the predictions for a collapse in auction sales:ph34r:

Yeah I watched some of the auctions crazy prices, some of the bows were going up to 8 times the estimate.

Since many have misunderstood what I was trying to say in the other thread, I didn‘t predict a collapse in prices in the march sales, rather that the individual who paid 17,000 pounds for the violin you mention, will be biting himself in his arse come autumn when the virus dust has settled

Yet it had some interesting features, among them : decent  varnish,  squarish pins etc.
