Last chance saloon for Brian Girling collection

The sixth and last chance to acquire part of the late Brian Girling collection will be at auction in Warwick next month (January).

Warwick and Warwick will be selling off the final instalment of the  collection and trading stock in what auctioneer Colin Such rates as “one of the best postcard collections ever formed in this country in recent years.”

Colin said: “Brian was a well-known and respected dealer with a fine knowledge of postcards, especially those of London and the Home Counties and this important sale includes a large section of such cards, with London divided geographically.

“There are individual collections of many boroughs with four figure valuations of Edgware, Harrow, Marylebone, Fulham, Kensington, Chelsea, Twickenham and Wimbledon. A collection of London omnibuses is offered intact with an estimate of £2,600. 32 different Rotary London Life are estimated at £550.”

The auction takes place on Wednesday January 24.

The penultimate part of the collection went under the hammer last month – with every lot selling, most realising well above estimate. It also contained significant ranges of London and suburbs.
