Plenty on offer as rearranged three-day auction is held in Exeter07 April 2021 The third UK lockdown meant that many auctions due to take place earlier this year have inevitably been pushed back, such as a three-day sale at Exeter saleroom Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood.
However, the good news is that with restrictions now easing those auctions are now coming back into play. Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood's extensive Quarterly Fine Sale originally earmarked for January is being staged on April 14-16.
And it is stuffed with options to buy, ranging from silver and ceramics to furniture, jewellery and fine art.
Here are five suggestions of what to buy.
