Bonhams FLASHBACK: -
24th August 1992 Entertainment Sale

Last week I showed you the content of a Bonhams sale from January 1992. In it a large number of ex-BBC Costume Dept outfits from Doctor Who were sold off.

Since then I have found another catalogue from 1992, this time from August.

Interestingly a number of the extensive Doctor Who items sound very much like those sold back in January, though with much higher estimates this time around.

More recently I think we have seen some of these lots continuing to be sold on. It’s fascinating to trace the items back through the various auction catalogues, following the prices they sell for.

As usual I have separated the items by Doctor era, and you can see the rest of the items here:

Footnote: This Dalek is sold in aid of Bedford Round Table and has for several years been used to generate street collections and general fundraising.
Some modifications have been made during a long charitable life to atone for previous evil deeds and it is now painted red, white and blue. It could however be restored to its 1960’s condition to provide a rare opportunity to own an early example of one of the most famous and popular screen
