GRAHAM BUDD, ONLINE Bobby Charlton’s signed Manchester United No.9 home jersey, c. 1965, sold for £ £18,075 against an estimate of £3,000-£5,000 at the sporting specialist’s online sale.

At the same sale, Bobby Moore’s white Fulham No.6 1975 FA Cup final jersey sold for £3,800, against a presale estimate of £2,000-£3,000.

Both shirts came from the collection of Bryan Horsnell a pioneer of footballing memorabilia since the 1960s.

Graham Budd said: “More often than not he would acquire items directly from footballers. It was one of the most successful auctions in years, with the top seller being the earliest Manchester United medal ever to be sold at auction which achieved of £24,100.”

HANSONS, ETWALL Meanwhile, football boots worn by David Beckham when he played for Manchester United in the 1999 FA Cup final against Newcastle United sold for £10,500 at the Derbyshire auctioneers.

The Red Devils won the game 2-0, their 10th FA Cup win in a memorable 1989-99 Treble season. The size 8¾ boots, created to Beckham’s unique specification, sparked intense bidding selling to a private UK phone bidder.

A Northern Ireland shirt worn by George Best in a match against England in 1964 sold to a US buyer for £8,800. England won 4-3 in what was Best’s first game against England and third appearance for his country.

DAWSONS, MAIDENHEAD A collection of 12 frosted glass angel fish by Lalique,

5.4cm long and 4.5cm high, sold for more than double its estimate when it achieved £400 at the Berkshire auctioneer’s fine art, antiques and Asian art sale on August 26.

First created in 1912, the year in which René Lalique gave up his career as a jeweller to devote himself totally to glass, the fish were one of the firm’s first mass-produced pieces.

Since then the ‘poisson’ seal has rarely been out of production. Fish of all types were a common theme in Lalique’s designs adorning jewellery, boxes, vases, epergnes and even radiator caps.

Fish were a great inspiration to the French glassmaker

HANNAM’S, SELBORNE A 25cm Qing famille rose vase that had been in storage for nearly 40 years made £550,000 at the Hampshire auction house.

Expected to make £15,000 the vase had been kept in the vendor’s father’s two-bed, semi-detached house until he died.

The twinhandled falancai ruby glazed vase has the mark of the Qianlong Emperor on it, which would date it to between 1735 to 1796 and was probably looted from the Imperial Palace during the Boxer Rebellion of 18991901.

The vase was likely made for the emperor and looted from the
