Our last Designer & Luxury Sale before Christmas was certainly one to remember. Strong hammer prices were achieved across all sections, including luggage bags, handbags, purses, scarves, costume jewellery and pens. With style-savvy bidders fighting for the lots of their choice over our three internet bidding platforms (Wilson Live, The-Saleroom and Invaluable) as well as via telephone and commission bids, a broad spectrum of designer names achieved fantastic hammer prices. Below are a list of our highest hammer prices, but to view the results in full, click here.
Unsurprisingly perhaps, the top-selling lot was a beautiful Chanel Double Flap handbag. Finished in soft quilted black lambskin leather, and finished with gold-tone hardware, this colour combination is undoubtedly one of Chanel's most popular and sought-after bags. After a flurry of bidding from local and international participants, the hammer fell at £2,400. With the rising price of Chanel bags in the retail sphere, it is no wonder that these bags are achieving fantastic prices at auction.

A Chanel Classic Double Flap Handbag, circa 1994 - 1996, the black quilted lambskin leather exterior with gold-tone locking clasp, gold-tone double chain shoulder strap, serial number 3067126. With maker's authenticity card and dust bag. Sold for £2,400.
One of the most colourful lots in the sale, and possibly the most popular bag at our viewing events, this Louis Vuitton 'Blossom Edition' wallet on chain in black Epi leather with multicoloured floral detailing and twisting maker's monogram clasp sold for £900. Other limited edition Louis Vuitton pieces to achieve high hammer prices included a suede Onatah Flowers Handbag, circa 2006 that sold for £510. These lots really prove the desirability for limited edition designer pieces at auction that are not available to purchase through retail channels, enticing interest and bidding from all three of our online platforms on sale day.
A Louis Vuitton Twist Blossom Edition Wallet on Chain Shoulder Bag, circa 2017, the maker's black Epi leather exterior with vari colour floral accents, gold-tone maker's clasp and chain handle, serial number SP3177. With maker's dustbag. Sold for £900.
A Louis Vuitton Limited Edition Onatah Flowers Handbag, circa 2006, the cacao perforated suede exterior with 3D floral detailing, gold and silver tone hardware, tan smooth leather detailing and striped shoulder strap, serial number RC0016. With maker's dustbag. Sold for £510.
As usual, our Louis Vuitton luggage reached great prices, with a Louis Vuitton monogram Keepall Bandoulière 55 luggage bag reaching £500, a A Louis Vuitton monogram Keepall 60 luggage bag fetching £490 and a A Louis Vuitton monogram Keepall 55 luggage bag selling for £420.
Another section to sell phenomenally well was our collection of Chanel costume jewellery. Top sellers included gold plated necklaces with the classic double C motif. Three of the Chanel pieces went for £460, with the remainder of the Chanel necklaces, including both gold and silver tone pieces, varying in size and condition, selling for between £180 and £440.
A Chanel pendant necklace, the gold-tone maker's quilted monogram suspended from a trace link chain, signed Chanel. Sold for £460.
