Long time client leaves his auction legacy

Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 4th December, 2014

Artwork belonging to a long-time Young’s Auctions client, who died recently, is a major highlight of the auction house’s forthcoming sale from 9.30am Friday December 5 at 229 Camberwell Road, East Hawthorn.

“The man was a client for more than 40 years and knew both my father Bill and grandfather Ernie,” explained director Ian Young.

Many of the oil paintings have gilt frames and feature ships and horses among the subject matter.

The auction contains model cars, trains and robots and an extensive range of English porcelain and crystal.

A wine club devotee is now selling his collection and, as a result, Young’s Auctions has 12 dozen bottles of red and white wine on offer.

With Christmas rapidly approaching, the collection of American powered decorations – including a Santa sleigh, ice skaters and a child on a sled sliding down snow – will not be out of place.

For handymen, there are several power tools including a whipper snipper, brush cutter, chainsaw, and workbench and saw.

A blue Grant Featherstone chair covered in tiles and a rocker by the same designer are other attractions along with a portable Pye black and white television from the early 1970s.

For music lovers, the auction contains a Kawai modern piano CX4.
