The Contents of the ‘Grand House’, Auctioned 8/11/22 sold 80% by Lot Number

Catalogued by former employee, Jason Benardout who flew over from his now home, Adelaide. It was an ’emergency’ job that had to be done quickly. Items were catalogued within a few days and then freighted to McKenzies for display and sale.

Lot 45, a Pietra Dura topped small table, sold the best, percentage-wise. Achieving five times its lower estimate, at $2,000 (Hammer Price). Lot 49, a French four-door sideboard sold at $1,700 (H.P.), showing a healthy market for useable items. Lot 23, a pair of leather tub (or Club) chairs achieved $1,500 (H.P.). All in all, an expedient way to move a bulk of items quickly.
