Own a piece of history!

For sale in this year's auction we have this piece of wood.



Doesn't look wildly impressive does it? Take a look at the other side.



This scruffy looking piece of timber was once part of one of the world's most famous stages. It is a piece of the stage from the Cavern Club in Liverpool!

These sections of stage do not come up for sale very often, making it a much sought after item among collectors. It's a chance to own a piece of history.
The estimate on this item is £2100-£2500


Also in the auction we have a Cavern Club Brick, originally offered for sale in 1983 when work was going on for The Cavern Walks building. That carries an estimate of £260-£280

Something a bit different

Before managing the Beatles Brian Epstein worked in the family business which was a well known shop in Liverpool mostly selling furniture.

Not everyone could afford to pay for large pieces of furniture so they often bought them on the "never-never" or Hire Purchase.


In the auction this year we have a payment book from Epstein's for 1958. The agent would go round to the customer's house each week and collect payments and mark in the book that the payment had been made. (According to the book the item was paid off in full.)
Estimate £15-£20

Are you the Walrus?

One of our more unusual lots in this year's auction is this Walrus mask! It was worn by Mark McGann in his role as John Lennon in the 1981 production of Imagine at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool.

The mask also comes with a grey hood and matching gloves to complete the look!
(Estimate £100-£120)
