Interesting silver objects, old military helmets and copper ware are among the attractions at E.J. Ainger’s forthcoming weekly auction from 9.30am Tuesday November 28 at 433 Bridge Road, Richmond.
Added to the mix are French and English mantel and carriage clocks and a mahogany case grandfather clock.
Auction goers no doubt will be impressed with the marble bust of Marie Antoinette, wife of King Louis XVI, both of whom were beheaded during the French Revolution.
French art deco figures are another attraction along with a selection of European and Australian oil and watercolour paintings and graphics – including works by
Australian painters John Coburn, Leon Hansen and Frank Mutsaers.
Among the furniture on offer is a particularly fine French walnut extension dining table with 10 matching chairs, new lounges and quality reproduction mahogany and walnut dining room and library pieces.
There also are several French oak refectory farmhouse tables that can seat 10 or 12 people, four Windsor-style armchairs, French walnut and painted commodes and bedside cabinets and oriental furniture.
Other items include large and impressive gilt mirrors, Persian woollen floor carpets and fine French tapestry, coins and banknotes, antique books and kerosene lamps.
