John's Valuable Advice

Auctioneer John Crane has brought more valuable advice to listeners with another discussion about more eclectic objects.

John brought a selection of items into the studio for his monthly slot on the Coffee Club.

He will shortly be celebrating his first year as a regular guest on Radio Clatterbridge, sharing valuable advice and interesting facts about all things auctioneering!

John, from Cato Crane, told presenter Steve Evans all about his next auction sale on 6th May 2015 with a potential of 800 lots being up for grabs.

The auctioneer brought in a citation to Chandos Wilson from the Band of Hope, an organisation that helped look after alcoholics.

Listeners then discovered how Penguin books are actually a relatively cheap idea as a collectors item and heard about the history of Port Sunlight.

Objects of desire: The citation, octagonal box and a Penguin book!

We look forward to welcoming John back for many more insights into the world of collectables.
