Chanel was certainly the name to watch in the Tennants Auctioneers’ inaugural Fabulous Designer Fashion Sale on 12th November, when handbags and jewellery by the famed fashion house were snapped up by buyers.
Leading the was a much-coveted Chanel Quilted Black Double-Flap Shoulder Bag, one of the most recognisable handbags in the world, which more than doubled the top estimate to sell for £2,700 (plus buyer’s premium). A Chanel Black Patent Uni Classic Handbag sold well, too, at £2,200. Chanel costume jewellery attracted a great deal of interest, and competitive bidding pushed prices well above estimate. Highlights included a Simulated Pearl Necklace by Chanel (sold for £850), and a Black Resin Pendant on Chain and Two Pairs of Drop Earrings, both by Chanel (sold for £600).
