A collection of fine, large pieces of Chinese porcelain are among the highlights of E.J. Ainger’s forthcoming weekly sale from 9.30am Tuesday June 20 at 433 Bridge Road, Richmond.
Antique and mid-20th century furnishings from a Toorak home are other attractions including French, English Victorian and Edwardian furniture.
Included is a set of 12 early Victorian padded back chairs with button leather upholstery and an impressive mahogany Sheraton Revival marquetry cabinet.
Auction goers will be impressed at the range of retro teak, occasional and dining room furniture and the variety of Louis XV style pieces.
There also are gilt mirrors on offer and a selection of rugs and runners.
Nineteenth century and mid-20th century bronzes are further drawcards, along with a fine selection of European and Australian art – including several paintings by indigenous artists.
The auction also contains several of 18th and early 19th century porcelain, sterling silver items and crystal including a large suite of Webb glassware.
Vintage signs, bikes and Dinky toys are a collector bonus.
