If you follow this blog you will remember that a few weeks ago Larry informed us of a certain auction to be held by Cuttlestones.
The contents of the family home Garmelow Manor have now been been sold.
In the sale (October 1st) it listed several items that belonged to Arnold Machin, included in the list was an original Plaster cast of the Machin Bust.
Just to keep you up to speed I now have the realisation bids for these 8 items.
