Tiny sewing machines to intrigue auction goers
Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 29th April, 2015
Tiny Singer sewing machines that can be held in one hand will be an unusual drawcard at Young’s Auctions next sale from 9.30am Friday May 1 at 229 Camberwell Road, East Hawthorn.
As well as the miniature sewing machines, this interesting collection includes old cameras and oil cans from the 1940s and men’s magazines from the 1950s.
There also is a substantial collection of specially minted commemorative silver coins, along with a fine specimen cabinet, old microscopes and an early anvil.
The entire collection is in fine condition because it was stored years ago and not used since.
Intriguing is the clock in the shape of a world globe and the auction also contains a range of silver and jewellery items including decanter labels, cigarette cases and pocket watches.
The reproduction furniture on offer includes a kidney shaped desk, while auction goers should be fascinated by the unusual circular wind up gramophone.
