Sensational Results For Our October Sale

Sensational Results For Our October Sale, and a Preview of the Forthcoming ‘Grand House Contents’ Sale on November 8th!

There were some impressive results on October 11 & 12, our most recent two night auction of Art, Jewellery and Collectables. The stand out piece was the rare and very collectable Lot 247, an important Australian cedar chest of drawers, c.1820, attributed to an early and important maker. It made a handsome $46,360 including B/P, a new Australian record, for an Australian chest at auction.

The sale started with a pretty work by Michael Challen which sold mid-estimate, hammer $5,250, solid for a small work. This was bettered at Lot 5, another similar size Challen which made $7,750, (hammer price).

Art ended up selling at an approximate 80% ratio.

Another notable result was Lot 62 by Robert Taylor-Ghee. A Melbourne view featuring trams on St Kilda Road. Due to internet coverage it attracted a number of Melbourne bidders, ending at a hammer price of $5,200. A good result for the artist.

Another impressive result was Lot 332, a Chinese Tang dynasty glazed pottery horse, which, again due to internet exposure made $15,500, hammer price.
