For March we have a plethora of Howard and Sons items coming up for sale.

First up and with the bulk of the items is Sworders in Essex on the 4th of March.

Click the pics for a link to the saleroom listings.
Howard chair with run up
First up is a nice little chair with a run up stool, we have one of these chairs in the workshop at the moment for restoration and the are very comfortable, the back is shaped perfectly and it gives good head support. If you want a comfortable chair without paying Bridgewater prices, this is certainly one to look at. Guide price is: £1000-£1500 which I would say is not too far off. Sold for £2000+Fees

Howard Leeds Sofa
A Pair of Leeds sofas, they look nicely upholstered, shame they only photographed one of them. Guide price: £1000-£2000. Miles off on these, I would expect more like £5000. Sold for £4600+Fees

Howard Bridgewaters
A Pair of Bridgewaters, look in good condition. Again the guide price is: £1000-£2000 again a mile off, expect around £5000. Sold for £4200+Fees

Howard Buttoned Bridgewater
A small buttoned Bridgewater, guide price £500-£1000. I would expect more like £1500. Sold for £1600+Fees

Howard Bridgewater
Looks like a medium Bridgewater, guide price £500-£1000, I would expect £2500. Sold for £2100+Fees


Next up is Lyon & Turnbull in Edinburgh on the 5th of March.

Howard grafton with ball and claw legs
A pair of Grafton shape armchairs with ball and claw legs. Guide price: £600-£800, I would expect £3000+. Sold for £6000+Fees

Next is Dreweatts in Newbury on the 12th of March.

Howard buttoned bridgewater
Another Buttoned Howard Bridgewater. Guide price £400-£600. Again I would expect more like £1500. Removed from sale.

Finally for the moment is Christies, London on the 18th of March.

Howard Sofa
Probably a Baring sofa but uncertain due to the bad re-upholstery, it also looks like it has foam seat cushions from the flatness of them. Guide price: £2000-£3000 is probably about right, maybe a little more.

Howard armchair
Nice little armchair, again unfortunately it appears the cushion has been replaced by a foam one. Guide price: £1000-£1500 again probably about right.

Realised prices will be posted after the sale, Happy Bidding.
