Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 10th February, 2017
French furniture from a private Melbourne home is among the highlights of E.J. Ainger’s forthcoming weekly auction from 9.30am at 433 Bridge Road, Richmond.
The furniture includes two superb armoires, a servery, two Victorian mahogany dining tables and a set of eight mid-Victorian dining chairs.
Other auction furniture attractions are Australian cedar narrow bookcase, chest and dressing table, an outstanding Victorian burr walnut mirror back credenza and a Victorian twin pedestal desk.
Auction goers should also be interested in a good Tudor oak eight piece dining room suite, set of eight Spanish-style ornately carved chairs and occasional furniture – along with leather and upholstered lounges and quality silk and woollen floor carpets.
Giltwood and Venetian-style decorative mirrors, two wine presses and an American coffee grinder are other offerings and a huge collection of Australian and international oil paintings, watercolours and graphics should bring art buyers running.
The auction also contains an interesting collection of porcelain, carnival glass, Waterford and Stuart crystal and four superb sterling silver entrée dishes and covers.
Other attractions include oriental jade carvings and a collection of Dinky and Corgi model cars.
