For gents, there is a large range of premium designer watches which are expected to be sold at a fraction of their retail price, as well as a collection of antique rare scientific instruments. Christmas auctions are a great opportunity to purchase some amazing Christmas gifts as prices will start low, and depending on the bidding, may be sold for a song.
Art starts out at Lot 220 with a work by Pro Hart. Other well-known and famous artists to be sold include, Micheal Challen, Rovert Juniper, H.S Power, David Bromley, Guy Grey-Smith, Howard Taylor, William Boissevian, Elizabeth Durack as well as some impressive overseas artworks. All items are being offered by a range of sincere sellers who genuinely want to sell. For example, much of the antique furniture, which has been chosen with an eye to value and quality is being offered for less than modern day items constructed of particle board and held together with glue and staples.

A Note from a Happy UK Customer, from our May 2016 Auction
My recent purchase of a pair of diamond studs arrived today.
You made the process of purchasing in Australia very easy for me, I would most certainly buy again .
Your grading of the diamonds was conservative and they are more beautiful than I expected.
I am a gemologist by trade and I often expect to receive stones which have been perceived to be a higher colour and grade than the GIA
guidelines stipulate and I set my budgets accordingly, however, with these diamonds I am pleasantly surprised and I applaud your expert.
Thank you again,
