A private collection of pocket watches including examples by Kelly of Louth has sold for nearly £5,000 at auction in Lincoln.

The 50 lots were sold at auctioneers Golding Young & Mawer on May 15 with the highest price, £420, paid for a William IV silver cased pocket watch, made in London in 1837.

Auctioneer John Leatt said: “This was a well selected collection of pocket watches which appealed not only to collectors from Lincoln and Lincolnshire but to those from a wider area.

“Several buyers travelled considerable distances to attend the auction due to the quality, and large numbers, of pocket watches in the sale.”

Elsewhere, in excess of 50 lots of stamps, including 40 from a local deceased estate, sold for £13,000.

Among the collections, a number of Edward VII stamps from Antigua made £2,100, and an 1892 set from Barbados made £1,350.

A small collection of hunting memorabilia, including spurs, riding boots and riding crops, which previously belonged to the famous race horse trainer, jockey and hunter Jock Day made £85. Mr Day died whilst hunting with the Cottesmore Hunt in 1963.
