Antique Auctioneers Gavel & Block Institute of British Carriage and Automobile

Circa 1930

A mid to early 20th century auctioneers gavel and block set. 

A small medallion medal plaque attached to the front of the block for - 
The Institute of British Carriage and Automobile Manufacturers. 

I haven't found out too much about the company but as the name suggests, I can only assume they traded in horse drawn carriages and personal motor vehicles. Not sure if they auctioned off stock or if this was just presented as a retirement or winning gift to an employee.
Either way, a nice item that clearly has some story behind it. 

Block diameter 17cm 
Gavel length 22cm 

Condition - Good. Sign of use. 

Item No. 6351
