The ultimate choice for auction buyers

Author: Richard Brewster | Posted: 19th November, 2014

Auction goers are bound to find something they want to buy when almost 800 items go under the hammer from 9.30am Friday November 21 at Young’s Auctions 229 Camberwell Road, East Hawthorn.

For wine buffs, there is a selection of quality wine and champagne – while bird prints from leading 19th century artist and ornithologist Gracius Broinowski will be up for grabs.

Broinowski was born in 1837 in Poland and, aged 20, swam ashore from a windjammer off Portland Victoria to arrive in Australia.

His first commercial venture into natural history was a commission to supply the NSW Department of Public Instruction with pictures of Australian birds and mammals – the type of work that perpetuated his name.

An auction feature is the Royal Albert country roses dinner, tea and coffee sets, which joins other English porcelain and crystal ware as an attraction for buyers.

Collectors also should be interested in the antique brooches, rings and pendants on offer – and there is plenty of modern and antique furniture, cameras and statues to whet the appetite.

Next week’s special sale will several quality watches from a deceased estate including Longines, IWC and Rolex.
