Ronnie Makes £16,000
A collection of Ronnie Kray's daubs sold for a total of £16,000 at Mander Auctioneers today. When I first reported this sale, seven were up for grabs (CLICK). BBC Suffolk now reports that eight were sold (title link). They hit the top end of their pre-sale estimates of £1500 to £2000. So who bought them? Sir Nick for Tate Modern? The publican of The Blind Beggar? Vladimir Putin as a pressie for Andrei Lugovoi? Or Sir Ian Blair as a nostalgic reminder of simpler days for the Met. Police?
