A Georgian mahogany and oak cased eight-day grandfather clock is one of the highlights of E.J. Ainger’s forthcoming weekly auction from 9.30am Tuesday February 21 at 433 Bridge Road, Richmond.
Auction goer attractions among the plethora of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian chests of drawers, dressing tables and other furniture are the Edwardian walnut and mahogany hallstands and trees.
Retro teak furniture and reproduction dining suites are further drawcards along with farmhouse tables and sets of chairs and luxurious leather and fabric lounges.
For those buyers looking for mirrors, several decorative wooden and gilt framed examples are on offer.
Other furniture items of interest include a large reproduction executive’s desk, library bookcases and contemporary white painted display cabinets and stands.
Unusual is the heavy marble top butcher’s table, along with two large cast iron fountains and a pair of cast iron wall lanterns.
The auction contains a wide selection of quality Persian, tribal and decorative floor rugs and runners from a Victorian terrace house in Albert Park.
There also is a large and interesting collection of Australian and overseas oil paintings, watercolours and graphics – and porcelain, glass, crystal, silver, jewellery and gentleman fob watches.
