Impressive chandeliers and ornate gilt mirrors highlight E.J. Ainger’s forthcoming weekly auction from 9.30am Tuesday May 23 at 433 Bridge Road, Richmond.
Many of the auction items come from stately homes in Toorak, Albert Park and East Melbourne and are bound to whet auction goer appetites.
Among the more outstanding pieces are a silver plated coffee and tea service, Royal Albert dinner service and Merric Boyd and Lalique collectables.
Antique industrial sewing machines are bound to excite collector interest – while a range of vintage toys (including Dinky and Corgi) should bring the toy collectors running.
Among the furniture on offer is a magnificent three-door wardrobe, Australian pine sideboards and cupboards, Australian antique cedar and English mahogany, and Moran and Chesterfield leather lounges.
The auction also contains a butterfly specimen collection, Persian rugs and a large and interesting collection of Australian and European oil paintings, watercolours and graphics.
