Our March London auction was one of the most active we can remember in a long time. The quality of lots on offer brought many bidders from Europe, America and Asia, and the results reflect a willingness in the market to push prices to the upper limits of the estimate range and beyond.

Of particular interest was the violin by G. B. Guadagnini which sold for £810,000 ($1,100,000) from a pre-sale estimate of £400,000-600,000. Bows also performed well with many lots exceeding their high estimates, including a fine Dominique Peccatte violin bow which sold for £72,000 ($90,000) from estimate of £40,000-60,000. The percent sold was 84% and the total number of bids was 1,519.
