Syd Barrett's Possessions Raking in the Dough

A painting by Syd Barrett, titled: A Design for a Panel of Abstract Crosses, sold at auction for £4,000. It was sold in a fine art auction at Cheffins in Cambridge, UK. It was painted in 1965 and given to his girlfriend, Vivien Brans. It was then passed to her nephew, who is from Cambridge.

Last November, seventy-six of Syd's personal items, from his former home in St Margaret's Square, Cambridge, fetched a total of £120,000 at Cheffins. They ranged from a homemade breadbin and set of stereo speakers to an armchair with stain on the head-rest where Barrett had reclined.
