Following a previous sale, singer Rod Stewart has announced that he is selling another 20 items from his antique collection at an auction this week.
In 2018, he sold 35 items from his collection because he was moving from his Epping house to Durrington House near Harlow in Essex.
Highlights of the items for sale include a gilt and painted pier table in the George II style that is estimated to sell for between £1,500 to £2,500. As well as this, a George II carved wood table covered in gold gilt is estimated to be worth between £1,500 and £2,000.
There is also a Georgian style wing back chair for around £1,000 to £1,500 and a marble console table worth between £800 and £1,200.
If you want to own an item that belonged to Rod Stewart for more modest prices, you could bid for a gilt wood coffee table estimated to be worth between £250 to £350 or an adjustable brass lamp for between £250 and £300. For more unusual tastes, there is a stuffed and mounted fox and a stuffed and mounted gannet in glass cases. On top of these prices are auction fees.
The 2018 sale of Rod Stewart’s items fetched £90,000 and the 20 items for sale in 2019 are expected to raise £37,000. The auction will take place at Sworders in Stansted Mountfitchet on September 10-11.
