Cooper Owen's 19th April live auction at Madame Tussauds, London is packed with important lots together with bargains to suit all pockets-highlights include:
John Lennon's school boy 'Anthology' featuring ten pages of hand drawn and coloured illustrations by John, aged 12- This wonderful piece shows John's early competency as an artist and includes a fantastic illustrated version of the Walrus and the Carpenter. Decades later this appeared as a reference in the surreal 1967 song I Am The Walrus - a truly remarkable artefact from John's childhood.
The Beatles signed ATV 'Thank Your Lucky Stars' camera card, 1963-This historic piece signed by the group during their first ever UK TV appearance; the autographs were collected by a wardrobe assistant on the show creating a stunning visual memento of one of the most important TV appearances ever-the beginning of 'Beatlemania'.
7 inch acetate recording of Yer Blues by Supergroup featuring John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and others, 1968 - A fantastic record of this unique union of some of the best musicians of the time.
The Rolling Stones, original airbrush artwork for their 1971 UK tour poster by Graphic Artist John Pasche-The immediately recognisable original design for one of the Stones most iconic posters. John Pasche also designed the Stones 'Tongue' logo.
Raphael Ravenscroft's 'Baker Street' vintage Alto Saxophone made by Adolphe Sax - One element of Gerry Rafferty's hit Baker Street stands out like no other – the sax solo – a significant vintage instrument in its one right, this is the sax played by Raphael Ravenscroft on this perennial favourite.
The Celebrity and Rock art of James Wilkinson - Truly unique portraiture which James uniquely gets signed by the subject creating truly individual pieces – portraits include Robbie Williams, Noel Gallagher, Tom Jones, Elton John, David Bowie, Paul Weller and others.
And much more.
