    PART XI - THE AUCTION

    The live auction is for many the highlight on the Sunday of the National.
    I can do no better than use some of BBR's own images to reflect this part of the weekend.

    PART XII - AUCTION PREVIEWS

    The BBR offices and sale room are located within the heritage site at Elsecar and are always worth a visit to view lots for some of the their upcoming auctions.

    Some absolutely stunning stuff in there! I love the graphics on the old pot lids, I wish they were more commonly available here. That's something I would love to have a small collection of if they were more affordable.

    WOW.... amazing.. wonderful images and items... a total different type of show for me.. these are from a total different era (and location) of bottle and signage that I collect. Love seeing other items that folks collect.
    Doubt there was any Nichol Kola or Ver-Vac at this show! Ha...
    Thank you for taking the time to post this.. What a great vacation and experience this would make.

    Amazing show! Would be worth a plane ticket just for admittance alone. Thank you for posting.
