Victoria’s St Vincent de Paul Society will be the beneficiary of auction proceeds from a large oil painting collection featuring artists Joyce McGrath, Nornie Gude and Donald Cameron when E.J. Ainger holds its second auction for the year from 9.30am Tuesday February 19 at 433 Bridge Road Richmond.
One of the paintings for auction is a female study but no doubt art lovers will find plenty of other works to whet their appetites and support this worthy cause.
Other paintings of note include acrylic on canvas works by Anna and Jeannie Pitjara, a Gabriella Possum lithograph, an Enid A. Philip still life and creations by E. Barlow, Naylor Gill and Marcel Cousens.
The auction contains a strong selection of Regency, Victorian, Edwardian and 20th century furniture including a Victorian cedar two-door bookcase and rosewood sewing/writing table.
An Australian cedar oval dining table is another attraction along with a six-person teak outdoor dining setting (one table with two benches) and French Louis XV style lounge and bedroom furniture.
Auction goers also should be interested a set of six antique French copper saucepans and a Victorian walnut and brass bound writing box.
A French Louis XV lacquered and gilt bracket clock in working order should bring ardent clock collectors to the sale, while for garden enthusiasts a pair of cast iron Victorian style urns is worth a look.
Other attractions include a traditional hand knotted Afghan wool yarn decorative rug, a Victorian gilt overmantel mirror, two china figures and a small travelling chess set.
