RE­VIEW: The An­ders Clausager Col­lec­tion, As­ton’s Auc­tion­eers, Dud­ley, West Mid­lands, 9 De­cem­ber When his­toric mo­tor­ing writer An­ders Clausager went on his trav­els he liked to visit model shops in search of ad­di­tions to his diecast col­lec­tion. After 60 years of col­lect­ing, Clausauger de­cided that enough was enough and 700 mod­els from his Birm­ing­ham home were of­fered in the largest ever sin­gle-owner col­lec­tion put up for sale by As­ton’s Auc­tion­eers. The to­tal topped £100,000 sur­pass­ing the es­ti­mates put on the mod­els by Chris As­ton, who says: ‘It’s a shame we can’t find a col­lec­tion like this to sell ev­ery month!’ One of the in­di­vid­ual high­lights of the sale was a set of 12 Lego Sys­tem ve­hi­cles (left) that added £2100 to the to­tal.
