Some of the recent Bromptons auctions have had similarly poor outcomes, I'm not sure it is an entirely new issue for them.

Oops! My mistake. The bidding is still open - the auction page wasn't refreshing in my browser, and it looked like the bidding had ended. So hopefully they will do well. Sorry @Shelbow.

The bidding had finished but it has reopened again for lots that didn't sell the first time. Tarisio and Bromptons usually do this. Bromptons usually sell a few more things from the after sale but you are correct to point out that recently they have not been doing so well. Having said that the Guarneri sold for £460k so they are doing ok.

What is interesting is that someone bid £360k on the Guadagnini but it didn't reach the reserve which I think was £400k.

Now the bidding is open again with a starting bid of £320K

I believe it was a combination of two things that contributed to a poor outcome. The estimates were a little unrealistic for a few instruments. For example,  a 1962 Roth with a  soundpost crack at 2500-4000 and a Carletti at 18000 was in my opinion a bit high. Secondly, most bows had serious condition issues along with good name violins like WE Hill with a badly done soundpost repair.

I wonder what your definition is of a poor outcome.

They sold a Joseph Filius, a Nicola Bergonzi, A Guadagnini (at aftersale), a Pressenda and a couple of other 6 figure items.

Was responding to George and Shelbow who felt the outcome was not good

Yes the big ticket items did well and that will clearly bring in the profit, but it is also unfortunate for them that a large amount of lots went unsold first time around. We will have to see what happens in the after sale.

Ingles and Hayday made some very high end sales and also managed to sell the majority of their lots, although it is true that they also had a number of higher items that did not sell.

Will the Guadagnini actually sell though? It hasn't reached the reserve yet as far as I can tell.

The bidding was at £360k in the sale and it didn't meet the reserve at that point.
