Welcome to Cooper Owen, The World's No. 1 Auction House for Entertainment and Musical Collectables. Cooper Owen Ltd was formed in 2005 with the mission of creating an auction house that was wholly dedicated to the historic fields of Music and Entertainment auctions. At our launch auction in July we shattered the World record for the Beatles lyric "All You Need Is Love", which fetched £690,000 ($1.25m). Our second successful auction was held at Madame Tussauds featuring props from the Sgt Pepper album cover. The waxwork Beatles' heads used on the cover of the album were sold for £95,000 ($150,000). John Lennon's School anthology book, which contained art work and stories from his child hood one of which was the famous 'Walrus' this great item of rock pop culture memorabilia sold for £126,500. The Ian James personally owned guitar, friend and school pal to the then young lad Paul McCartney who taught Paul his first ever chords of major significance, which lead to John Lennon's attention of Paul's talents to later achieve the phenomena of the 'Beatles'. This rare and valuable and highly regarded guitar sold for £330,000 at the famous Abby Road Studios last year. 'Fantastic' was the buyer reaction; a very worthy collector Mr. Muscle Car, Craig Jackson, of Phoenixes 'West World' Barrett Jackson Muscle Car auctions in Arizona, USA. These rare hidden treasures have surfaced to gain place and status in the fast growing collectors world or rock and pop culture. Remember without the enthusiasm, respect and appreciation of collectors and supporters of this incredibly nostalgic market place and fans alike to the favorites of the world of music past and present there would be no market, so keep enthused and keep searching and collecting, you never know what you might find! The major items in each auction were purchased by Bidders present at the auctions.
