It auctioned alongside a Bruckmann table service of German sterling silver. The lot included 120 silverware pieces in all, equal to cutlery for 12 persons. The set brought £2,600.

Overall, the Manchester jewellery auction netted an impressive £69,000 in sales.

Also auctioned was a ladies' Piaget 'Tangara' 18ct gold wristlet watch which sold for £2,100 (approximately $3,315).

Piaget is, of course, among the world's most coveted luxury watch brands. But did you know that you can acquire a luxury Longines watch for less than half the above Piaget's £2,100 price?
