On Saturday 6th October an Autumn Art Show in aid of @charliewalleruk in association with Dreweatts 1759 will take place at Donnington Priory. The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust is based in Thatcham, close to Donnington Priory, and was founded in 1997 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who took his own life whilst suffering from depression. The charity raises awareness of depression and fights stigma, by providing training to schools, universities, GPs, nurses and employers. Thirteen accomplished artists will donate the commission on their sold works to the charity.

All Aboard! Head over to Donnington Priory this weekend as our Transport sale goes on view this Sunday, 10am-2pm A highlight from our upcoming Transport Sale. Lot 17 is one of the very best examples of a Great Western Railway ‘Manor Class’ tender locomotives we have ever offered for sale at Dreweatts. It has fine detailing and is built to a very high model engineering standard. The model took 28 years to complete over week-ends and evening and the builder did not live long enough to paint the model. On his death three fellow model engineers from his local model engineering club took up the challenge to ensure that the model would look its very best in GWR livery. This is a great exhibition quality model and will most possibly end up is a display case as it would almost be a shame to fire it up and damage the fine paintwork. #dreweatts #donningtonpriory #locomotives #modelengineering #worksofart #auction

Here we have an intriguing Rolex, Oyster Perpetual Bubble Back from 1945. Inscribed on the back is the name ‘J. R. Stoop’. With some research we discovered this to be ‘Dickie’ Stoop, a Flight Lieutenant in WWII. He was one of the first men to race at Goodwood, driving MG around the perimeter track while it was still RAF Westhampnett. Post-war Dickie Stoop became a test pilot but also followed his passion for motor racing, competing at Le Mans, the Mille Miglia, at Spa and at race tracks throughout the UK driving a Frazer Nash and later a Porsche.Watches and Luxury Accessories | On View from Sunday, 10am-2pm#dreweatts #donningtonpriory #watches #rolex #vintagerolex #oysterperpetual #watchauction
