Louis Vuitton trunkLawrences’ two-day auction of Militaria and Collectors’ Items in Crewkerne last week was a great success with a vast variety of the 1700 lots finding keen buyers.

On the first day, an exceptionally broad survey of world coinage included an 11th Century Cnut penny from the Guildford mint at £1610.

The Collectors’ sale on the following day comprised all manner of things to catch collectors’ eyes and included a Jules Steiner `closed mouth` doll – £2150; a 1960  painted Noah’s Ark with numerous pairs of animals – £2600 and a cold painted bronze of a magpie by Franz Bergmann £1900. The day’s top price was paid for a Louis Vuitton trunk that travelled off in style to its new owner at £7880.
