An antique chair belonging to French fashion designer Eve Saint Lawrence broke all records at an auction held in Scunthorpe earlier today.
The chair, made from wood, complete with wooden finish, was used by Saint Lawrence to sit in when she used to break down in fits of uncontrollable laughter when she realised someone had actually bought one of her acknowledged awful fashion creations that even she thought, in hindsight, were too bad to be considered even as window cloths.
The auction was organised by local antique expert Chris Bonham-Phillips, and the records were broken when some dozy farmer bumped into the chair they were on as he left the room.
The records, included some early Cliff Richard 45's, a first edition of "Now! That's what I call funeral music", twelve Lena Zavaroni LPs and several Police records left on the Grimsby-York train by some dimwit legal civil servant the night before.
A spokesman for the auctioneers was said to be thrilled that the Leza Zavaroni records had been completely destroyed.
