The last of a Swarovski crystal collection that Young’s Auctions has been auctioning in recent weeks will be part of its latest sale from 9.30am Friday March 27 at 229 Camberwell Road, East Hawthorn.
According to director Ian Young, last week’s major special sale of the crystal was a sell-out and there are still about 30 quality pieces to go.
“We also have a collection of antique clocks that should interest collectors,” he said.
The auction contains sterling silver items including a monogrammed 1865 coffee pot and several cigarette cases.
There is a Lalique frosted crystal vase and comprehensive collection of Victorian antique jewellery – including a a nine-carat gold brooch set with rubies and pearls and a nine-carat gold pocket watch with Waltham movement.
Of interest to coin collectors will be the Mint coins, while Royal Doulton and Royal Albert dinner sets also are on offer.
Crystal wine goblets, decanters, a Villeroy & Boch dolphin and a Waterford crystal heart shaped bowl are other attractions.
Other items of interest include Australian and European paintings and furniture including a Moran leather couch and Grange dining setting.
