Two Antiques Auctions this coming Saturday June 11th 2016

Biddle and Webb have their regular monthly two room antiques and interiors auction this Saturday, Fieldings in Stourbridge are running their Fine Art, Antiques & Collectables  auction at the same time (Last month was my first visit there)

Biddle and Webb have two catalogues:  Room 1 and Room 2 – the rooms run simultaneously – so if you go a long you may need to nip from room to room.

This week I think I found the Fieldings  catalogue more appealing.  Probably just more colourful!

They have a stretch of tiles from lot 73 through to lot 96.  Tiles seem to be a good collectable, lots of niches to plough, a wide range of tastes and the right ones look fab.
