Antiques auction sparks worldwide interest

NINE hundred items belonging to the owners of a farm estate are to go under the hammer tomorrow (Saturday).

The large collection of antique and architectural pieces belong to the owners of Worleys Farm near Crazies Hill.

The interior and exterior pieces were collected over a number of years and include the contents of two chateaux in Normandy.

The lot with the highest estimate is a 19th century terracotta statue of a Venetian centurion, which is expected to fetch between £2,000 and £4,000.

Three lots have estimates of £1,500 to £2,500 — an 18th century, French carved oak cupboard, an Italian dining table and French oak shelves, which both date from the 19th century.
