Bentley To Auction Handcrafted Collector's Items


If you’re a diehard fan of a particular brand, anything with the company’s logo is usually a welcome gift.

There isn’t much variety out there, so over time enthusiasts amass a collection of branded watches, pens, cufflinks, valve caps and clothing.

If only a manufacturer would think outside the box, and offer up some truly unique branded items.

If you’re a fan of Bentley, or you know someone who is, prepare to get your credit cards ready. To raise money for The Prince’s Trust, the brand from Crewe is auctioning off a diverse selection of items, almost all of which were handcrafted by the same artisans that build its cars.

Pieces range from tasteful jewelry boxes and signed artwork though to the truly bizarre. If you want a pair of lamps made from the camshafts of a Bentley Continental, you’re in luck. Perhaps a paperweight made from a Bentley oil cap is more to your liking, or an office chair crafted  from the seat of a Bentley Continental Supersports (which we want, badly).

There’s even a table made from the engine block of a Bentley Mulsanne V-8, and a coffee table crafted from a Bentley Mulliner wheel, both of which require the buyer to have a truly understanding spouse.

In all, about twenty pieces will go under the hammer, beginning today. Interested bidders can participate online at the Bentley Bespoke Auction website, and the items will also be on display at the upcoming Goodwood Revival Festival from September 16 to 18. Don't put off bidding too long, since the auction ends on Monday, October 10.
