British rock-singer and songwriter Sir Rod Stewart has placed 20 items up for auction, including a stuffed fox.

The bizarre item features among a series of clocks and a hoard of outlandish furniture the singer had placed in his former Epping home where he lived until last year.

The 74-year-old, has a total reserved price tag of £37,000 for all 20 items.

Stansted-based Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers sold some of Sir Rod's furnishings at the time of the move.

The auction house has now been tasked with a second wave of clearance after the rock singer moved to his new home near Harlow.

The stuffed and mounted fox, in a glass case, is estimated to fetch between £200 and £300 when it goes under the hammer next month whilst a stuffed gannet is estimated to go for between £250 and £350.

But topping the price list is a marble-topped gilt wood hall table with a tag of £4,000 to £6,000.

Also due to go under the hammer is a garish striped armchair thought to be worth as much as £1,500.

While it seems like he's trying to get shot of his small collection of birds, Sir Rod still maintains his tennis court sized model railway set - kept at his Los Angeles home.

John Black, of Sworders, said: "Last year at about this time he sold some other items with us because he was selling his house in Essex.

"This is what we have this time, more items from then. He's just having a clear out."

He added: "Last year it went crazy, we had a lot of interest. It was unbelievable."
