Cheffins David Brown photographs

Recommended Posts

Yesterday with a slight tinge of food poisoning and an umbrella i headed down the Cheffins sale. With an eye to purchasing some of the very rare and very early David Brown photographs which had all come from a private collection which at one point had belonged to Mr H P R Scott, General Manager of the factory.

The auction commenced and what was witnessed couldn't have been predicted.

Lot 1. £500

Lot 2. £260

Lot 3. £460

Lot 4. £460

Lot 5. £480

Lot 6. £2600!

All lots went to the same buyer with the addition of 10% buyers comission and vat. Lots 7 & 8 made £200 and £160 repspectively. The lots themselves were a unique collection but many of the photographs, as with the image above had been seen and duplicated in DB publications and books. There were lots of duplicated images too with 20 or so copies of the industrial Ferguson Brown included in a single lot.
