From a musician wearing a top hat to an armchair with dolphin arms - what is your favourite item?
Rod Stewart is selling up his home in Sheering near Harlow in Essex, and is selling some of the opulent furniture and decorative items he has amassed over the years while rolling out his hits such as Maggie May and The First Cut is the Deepest. Here are five items up for sale in the auction at Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers on September 11 that scream out ‘80s rock icon.’
This gold painted spelter figure of a black musician, wearing a top hat, smiling and playing a banjo, with an estimated value of £700-£900, seems to be asking ‘Do ya think I’m sexy?’
Rod Stewart is a bit of a fan of leopard print, as we can see in his fashion choices over the years.
This teak lounge armchair, with a cane back, double caned sides and a faux leopard print cushion, could be snapped up for £250 to £350.
Which celebrated rock legend friends of Rod Stewarts has he entertained over the years on this Louis XV-style settee, with light blue fabric upholstery, the reverse in embroidered designs.
You too can perch your bottom on it for an estimated value of £600 to £800.
A pair of gilt armchairs, with dolphin arms - To make you feel like ‘we are sailing..’
One of the priciest items in the lot is pair of pier mirrors from the late 19th century, with an estimated value of £2,000 to £3,000. Some guys have all the luck.
