LONDON.- Bonhams first ever Carriage Collection auction was a white glove Sale, achieving over 1.1 million for the record breaking international auction house. The ex-Royal British Mews Landau commissioned by King William IV was the star lot of the auction, with the winning bid coming in online from a North-East Asian bidder, selling at 247,900.

Bidders from across the world took part in the auction, vying enthusiastically to take home part of the vast single-owner collection of Victorian Carriages, Coaches and related memorabilia.

“Today’s Sale saw a packed auction room, 100% sold, international bidding, and many items soaring far above estimate to achieve over 1.1 million for the Sale,” said Rob Hubbard, Bonhams Motoring Specialist and auctioneer of the Sale.

“Utilizing our international client base and skilled team of specialists, we were able to achieve some great results. The first auction of its kind for Bonhams, it attracted attention from clients all across the globe, with bids coming in from Australia, Mexico, the US, Europe and the Far East - we’re delighted with the results.”

Further highlights include an 18th century sled, racing past its estimate of 7,000-10,000 to achieve 31,050; two 19th century coaches from rival champagne houses Veuve Clicquot and Mot & Chandon, achieving 34,500 and 26,450 respectively; and a Park Drag, circa 1880, with Coachwork by Holland & Holland, selling at 79,900.

Bonhams Motoring Department will hold over 20 international Sales in 2015, with three auctions still to come in March: The Amelia Island Auction (Florida, 12 March); the inaugural Goodwood Members Meeting Sale (Chichester, 21 March); and the Mercedes-Benz Sale (Stuttgart, 28 March).
