The sale starts as it normally does, with art. Many of Western Australia’s and Australia’s best known artists are included. The obvious stand out is the cover piece, lot 43 by Western Australia’s own Guy Grey – Smith. A 1960 work which clearly shows the influence of Nicolas de Stael (1914 – 1915). A Russian artist Grey-Smith greatly admired.

The art component also includes works by John Brack, Robert Dickerson, Robert Juniper, Bromley, Durack, Blackman, Boissevain, Donald Friend, Hans Heysen, Sali Herman, as well as a superb and rare still Life of Flowers by Rupert Bunny and many others, including Aboriginal and overseas artworks.

Furniture is next and ranges from Georgian to modern and includes some good Western Australian colonial jarrah pieces, the best of which is the three door chiffonier at lot 166 by George Wansborough of York, 1834 – 1920. A good range of decorative arts, glass, ceramics etc. rounds out the first night.

Director, Peter McKenzie with a rare Georg Jensen coffee set, Grey-Smith oil, Daum Nancy vase and a Georgian chest.
(Lots 568, 43, 228 & 139).    

Night two starts at lot 275 with over 200 jewellery items and watches. Famous brands are included; Cartier, G.Jensen, Audemars Piguet, Rolex, Omega, etc. Catalogue descriptions are guaranteed and many items have the current owners independent insurance valuations. Items can often be had for around one quarter of these valuations. There is a great array of diamonds up to 6 carats.

From the offer of many rugs, we have chosen the best 9, including some intricate vintage silks. These start at lot 491. Oriental is next from lot 500 to 541. (Our previous sale was a specialised oriental offering which greatly exceeded our expectations, showing this is a growing sector of the collectables market!).

The auction winds up with a diverse range of silver. Dutch, Scandinavian, English, Continental, Oriental and Western Australian pieces are all included. My favourite being the ‘petite’, Stewart Devlin candlesticks at lot 576. Also, some significant Linton pieces feature.

I look forward to welcoming you to the sale.

Warm regards,

Peter McKenzie
Managing Director
