Christmas gift time at Young's Auctions
Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 17th December, 2014
Christmas presents are high on the agenda for Young’s Auctions final sale for the year from 9.30am Friday December 19 at 229 Camberwell Road, East Hawthorn.
The auction contains a large number of small items – many of which would make ideal gifts for Christmas.
Among the more appealing gift items are Waterford, Orrefors and Stuart crystal vases and bowls and English Royal Albert and Royal Worcester dinner and tea sets.
Young’s Auctions director Ian Young said it was rare not to sell all the small items, particularly at Christmas, and the auction usually attracted large crowds.
Red and white wine is another major drawcard, with many popular brands on offer.
New bronze figures in old art deco style are another feature, while a nickel plated wine pourer mounted on a stone base is an unusual attraction bound to appeal to many auction goers.
New nine-carat gold rings and pendants still in their plastic packets will appeal to many looking for a more intimate gift and Lladro statues will make a nice change.
Spode plates, cups and saucers should attract a following, while Wickham Perry is probably the best-known artist among the works on offer.
Furniture features a new German Ronisch piano and two silk rugs for which the vendor respectively paid $18,000 and $15,000.
