Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 16th March, 2016
Leading Australian antiques dealer and arts patron Graham Geddes continues to auction highly collectable items – from an enormous collection assembled globally over four decades and now being consolidated – through major auction house Leonard Joel.
The next saga in this long tale will begin at 11am Sunday March 20 on site in his shop at 883 High Street, Armadale.
Housed over two levels, this eclectic, well-curated collection showcases a diverse offering of well-travelled furnishings and objects sure to appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers from interior decorators to niche collectors.
A significant highlight and one of Graham Geddes favourite pieces is a rare ancient Egyptian bronze figure of Sekhmet.
The 2500-year-old relic and museum quality deity was acquired 30 years ago at Sotheby’s London showrooms and was recently on loan to the National Gallery of Victoria.
Another major item is the rare 18th century Italian marble topped giltwood centre table – formerly part of the Mentmore Tower furnishings in Buckinghamshire.
