auction: July 2010 Archives

275x250.jpg A set of false teeth designed and custom-built for Sir Winston Churchill have been sold at auction for £15,200.

The teeth - mounted on a gold structure - were constructed by dentist Derek Cudlipp and designed to preserve Churchill's natural lisp.

One of only three sets ever made, the dentures had been owned by the son of the dental technician, until the sale where they were expected to fetch £5,000.

But nine bidders all wanted to get their teeth into the odd piece of World War II memorabilia and the drove the price up to £15,200 at the Keys Auctions sale.
