Rare opportunity to buy a piece of North East History

This week at Boldon Auction Galleries there is a unique opportunity to purchase a piece of North East history, when a portrait of William Darling, the father of local heroine Grace Darling, comes up for auction.

Believed to have been painted by one of the most well-known North East artists Ralph Hedley, who was active between 1848-1913.

With an estimate of £400-£600 it is a chance to buy a very affordable piece of our North East heritage.

Lot 361 will be offered for Auction on Wednesday 5th March.  The Auction starts at 10am.

We are open for viewing on Tuesday 4th March 2pm - 6pm and on Wednesday morning from 9am.
