Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 14th November, 2013
Auction goers looking to purchase luxury decorative items should check out Leonard Joel’s on site contents auction of 16 St Georges Road, Toorak from noon Sunday.
The sale will provide auction goers with their fill of crystal, marble, leather, silk, gilt and baroque elegance as soon as they walk through the front entrance.
Particularly impressive are the leather Chesterfield lounges and armchairs, the gilt overmantel mirrors, the bronzes, marble urns, the Chinese-style porcelain covered vases and the silk cashmere floor rugs.
At the vendor’s request, admission to the viewing and auction will be by registration only with accompanying valid identification.
A major highlight is the oak Jacobean style bar with leadlight and bevelled mirrors and carved panels carrying a catalogue estimate of $15,000-$20,000.
Another is the Victorian oak mirror back sideboard (estimate $4000-$5000), along with an art nouveau style composite standard lamp, pair of Chinese baluster-shaped covered vases and a leather upholstered button back wing armchair with matching footstool.
