The top four items in July`s auction were all, in their own way, quintessentially English showcasing the best of English silver, pottery, and popular culture.

Lot 385 was a pair of Victorian novelty silver condiments shaped like bears.  Made in London in 1880 by Robert Hennell & Sons, the pair were absolutely adorable and sold for 2200.  

Definitely rivaling the bears for cuteness was Lot 670, a photograph of the Beatles signed by all four of them.  Despite George Harrison`s signature being traced over by the vendor as an enthusiastic ten-year-old, the hammer price was 1550.

More English silver in the form of an 86 piece modern London flatware service sold for 1140.  This was lot 543.

And Lot 118 sold for 1000.  It was a Foley Intarsio jardiniere charmingly decorated with ducks and flowers.
