Sixty years of interesting "old stuff" to go under the hammer

Sixty years worth of “old stuff” will go under the hammer when auctioneer Steve Graham mounts the rostrum at 10am on Sunday October 11 at 7 Ardoch Street, Essendon.

One of the main features of the auction is a copper and leadlight feature door that came from the former 1930s Mercantile Mutual building in Melbourne CBD and an ostrich egg in a Morton’s Fish Paste cardboard box.

The house contents include a hallstand, marble washstands, mirrored sideboards, dressing tables, display cabinets, beds, wardrobes and mirrors.

Of particular note is an auto trolley and a leadlight bookcase secretaire.

For those who love to fossick, the shed contents could provide the most satisfaction – with timber crates, boxes, petrol and oil tins, quoits, old tools, hand and power tools, old bottles and tin signs among the attractions.

The vendors once ran a post office and the auction contains several items reflecting those days.
