Leonard Joel is about to hold its fifth Sydney-based Jewels & Objets D’Art in 12 months from 1pm Sunday August 23 at the InterContinental Double Bay 33 Cross Street, Sydney.
Enormously popular among Sydneysiders, this auction offers an eclectic variety of fine jewellery and decorative arts.
Of particular note is the wide range of silver and several bronze figures – particularly the whimsical ‘Man in a coat’ by Secarel (lot 311).
Among the jewellery is an impressive 5.01-carat diamond ring (lot 117), pair of emerald and diamond drop earrings (lot 33) and a long diamond riviere with 152 diamonds totalling 8.36 carats (lot 34).
Among the more unusual decorative arts pieces is a rare early 20th century French Astralabe and zodiac dial (lot 271), a 19th century German ivory plaque, depicting the Battle Milvian Bridge in 312 AD between the Roman Christian Emperor Constantine I and the pagan Emperor Maxentius (lot 304), and a full deck of 20th century Indian erotic Kama Sutra painted ivory playing cards (lot 306).
Viewing 39 Queen Street, Woollahra.
