(hopes someone can sort out the format!)
Trotter: Fixed

Hi - the Tolkiens moved into that bungalow in 1969, I believe; and JRR left in 1971 - since which time the bungalow was occupied by others. How does anyone know which (if any) of these items were in the bungalow at the time, and/or if they'd been added in the intervening four decades?

I object to this discussion in Lucky finds (& Interesting eBay Auctions)!

There's a forum section for this kind of chat: it's called The Wonders of eBay...

I'd like him to come back and answer my questions?

If not then it is the Wonders of ebay for him.

Just realized what the name 'Enotsnekra' spells backwards... What? I'm not going anywhere with this; just saying...

I am intrigued by why he has not accepted this ebay offer

Q: Hi Steve. Thank you for letting me view your collection yesterday. I have spoken with my friend at Sothebys and I was wondering whether you would consider ending the auction early with an offer of £50,000 for the fireplace? I have limited funds at the moment but I would be willing to make offers on the other items at a later date. Regards, Bruce.
A: Hi Bruce. Thank you for your amazing offer! I would like a little time to think about your offer as I was hoping to keep the whole collection together. Interset in the collection has gone crazy. Will get back to you very soon. Regards Stephen


Does Bruce actually exist and would Sothebys sell these items at these inflated prices(with no provenance that these items have anything to do with Tolkien)?
