Manchester United Football Club interest: a rather unusual boxed Wedgwood Jasperware in Black presentation set in gilt rope effect frame with red velvet background, one plaque with the Man United logo in gilt with a gilt decorated plaque with Old Trafford, plaques 16cm long, frame 37x54cm. Provenance: the vendor believes that this is 1 of 2 produced. Supposedly, the other was given to Sir Alex Ferguson and the other was gifted to a relation of the vendors by a well respected employee of Wedgwood. The employee thought they were being very kind in gifting this to their friend until they realised he supported Manchester City and not United. It has been stored away for some years until now when it is being offered for auction.

This is a wonderful auction house, highly recommended by us! Five star service from a very professional organisation. Well done to you all.
Very professional service provided by Toby Hall. Reasonable commission fee's and honest condition report's. Will certainly be bidding again.
Great auction to buy from and equally great auction to sell from.... I’ve had experience of both and to say I’m pleased is an understatement..... 5 star treatment from start to finish..... wishing you every success in the future
Extremely professional service, easy process for bidding and Toby is very helpful throughout!
Leighton Hall Auctions is wonderful to deal with - even from the other side of the world (Australia). This auction house has been the most honest and thorough with their item descriptions (disclosing damage or restoration) that I have come across. Fantastic communication and helpful customer service. Happy customer here ??
An excellent up and coming auction house holding monthly sales with a good variety of antiques & collectables with online bidding capturing all the drama & humour of live bidding! Excellent customer service ... Will use again & again and would recommend
Toby is a breath of fresh air in this market place. He works with us (Belvoir Sales and Lettings) to aid our customers with marketing their items and is always spot on with advice, punctual and delivers exactly what he says every time. Very highly recommended! Adrian Walton, Managing Director Belvoir Stafford and Stone
Huge thanks to Toby and the team for a superb customer experience. Fast to respond to an issue (which wasn’t their fault). Hope to use you guys again in the future.
Toby showed an extremely attentive and caring attitude while helping us move on various things we'd discovered while clearing out our house. He gave us realistic estimates that were broadly in line with the final sale prices he achieved for them - watching the auctions was good fun too! Highly recommended, we will be back if there's a need to sell anything further.
I have just discovered this auction house and I believe it is quite a new business, I'd like to say, this is how all auction houses should be run. Tobys customer service is exemplary and he replies to any queries super fast and with a degree of politeness you don't often find these days, not that you need to ask many questions because his descriptions of items are brilliant, he points out any damage or restoration AND puts photos of this so you are totally clear what you are buying and have no need to ask for a condition report. I had the items posted to me and I have never seen such care taken in packaging items, all arrived safely
Recently used Leighton Hall Auction and was very impressed. I collect, buy and sell antiques so it's really useful to have an auction house that responds quickly and organised postage, was really helpful. Thanks!
