    New Photographica Auction Site

    There is a completely new organisation called Flints Auctions which has started up in London and will be holding their first Photographica auction towards the end of October. I suppose the concept is based on the long established European houses, like Westlicht and Breker. I recognise one of the participants as being from the successful SAS auction house's Photographica section.

    They are using Ebay in a very sensible way to sell the coming auction's catalogues at a price which can only be consider as reasonable.

    A dedicated auction house covering Photographica in the UK is a welcome addition to both buyers and sellers opportunities.

    I have no current contact with the three gents and no idea how their internet auction link-up will be arranged.

    They've signed up to the saleroom.com

    Matt Nunn, one of the three guys, is the man behind 'Apsley Antiques' who posted for info on here earlier this year

    The collection of (the late) Eric Evans is a real coup for them, particularly as it would very likely have gone to SAS

    Starting off with a large collection is a good way to start.

    I had mixed feelings about Aspley's listings and the ubiquitous perfect apple. If I hadn't listed some recent items here on FS section, I would have used ebay with a sad looking apple with attached cabbage white caterpillers - of which I have a lot this year.

    I have looked through the wood and brass camera listings. The catalogue would make a fine supplement to those listed at earlyphotography website as there are many new and interesting makes. I found a Swift Challenge model which I had been searching for!

    The best auctions feature a series of photos with a cat showing up, sniffing the item for sale, looking unimpressed by this musty old piece of junk and wandering off. If I ever get around to flogging anything I'm pretty sure one of my cats will saunter along to look askance at the wares.

    About the new auction house...oho...another auctioneer selling stuff I look at, don't need and can't afford

    I have just received the printed catalogue. It is quite good. Reproduction of photos could have been sharper and the cameras are pretty dark around bellows areas and inside boxes - but still useful for the on-line bidder.

    Very good value for money and a good source for reference when the collection is dispersed to various continents!
