From Corkscrews to Constables

Chiswick Auctions had a stall at Green Days. Their head of valuations, Liz Winnicott, told me the auction house on Bollo Lane now has more than twenty specialists in areas as diverse as handbags and Asian art. Over the weekend watches, jewellery, furniture and sculptures were among the items people brought them for valuation. They recently discovered two hitherto unknown sketches by John Constable among a dusty box of pictures brought to them.
