Idris Roberts - Steel Man


Steelworks ship model sells for £4,200

International bidding for collectors’ items with worldwide appeal resulted in a highly successful sale at Rogers Jones Co Cardiff saleroom, South Wales’s newest fine art and antiques auctioneers.

Of particular local interest was a collection of maritime, scientific and photographic collectables from the Port Talbot home of engineer Idris Roberts, which raised a total of £9,250; considerably more than anticipated.

Most notable – and imposing object in the collection was a huge, 10-foot long glass-cased model of a cargo ship which sold for £4,200, a multiple of the presale guide price.

The full story and report of the auction will appear in next week's Neath Guardian website.
