Leonard Joel engaged to manage the International Decorative Arts Collection of the Late J.O. Fairfax AC

IMG_1228
Leonard Joel is honoured to announce its appointment by the executors to manage this historic single-owner collection.

Some 600+ items representing James Fairfax’s collecting passions and travels will be offered in a full colour catalogue and auction event in Sydney in early September 2017.

The catalogue will be titled “The Philanthropist and Connoisseur – The Decorative Arts Collection of the Late J.O. Fairfax” and will present superb antique furniture, Asian artefacts, textiles, porcelain, silver and photography, representing James Fairfax’s highly considered yet passionate approach to the decorative arts. Detailed exhibition history and impeccable documentary provenance come with many of the pieces, only adding to the stature and importance of the collection.

The auction will showcase some of the finest Chinese textiles and jades, Japanese lacquer and English and European furniture ever to come on to the Australian market place.

And the unpretentious yet grand collecting methodology behind the collection means that estimates will range from the low thousands through to exceptional single examples that are expected to realise tens of thousands of dollars.

Interest is expected to be both local and international and the collection is conservatively estimated to realise in excess of $1,000,000 and proceeds from this auction will be invested in a fund, The James Fairfax Foundation, which will provide income to help support charities that Mr Fairfax has supported during his life, including The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, The Children’s Medical Research Foundation and WWF.

Robert Williams, National Head of Single-owner auctions for Leonard Joel:

“Numerous visits to Retford Park, the home of this most personal collection and conversations with Mr Fairfax’s nearest and dearest, have made researching and understanding this collection for me a deeply satisfying exercise and one I wish to respect in every facet of its management. As a UK-trained specialist it will be delightful to be offering for sale so many pieces of international calibre and flavour. European, English, Chinese and Japanese decorative arts are all strongly represented and I simply can’t wait to view the collection with the people of Sydney and the world.”

John Albrecht, Managing Director of Leonard Joel:

“So much has been written about the Fairfax family and story that for me it is as though I have been invited inside a discreet aspect of Australian social history. My first drive to Retford Park, the beautiful English-inspired gardens and the Victorian Italianate mansion that greeted me belied the truly diverse, international and complex nature of James Fairfax’s collecting style. As the appointed auctioneer it is my privilege to be managing this collection for the estate and what I feel most now is that I am very lucky indeed to be part of what is essentially the “collecting” chapter of the biography of this great Australian.”


Viewing | Saturday 26 – Wednesday 30 August, 11am-6pm & Thursday 31 August, by appointment.

The Property of Keith Clarke

Leonard Joel is pleased to offer at auction the Estate of Keith Clarke. Prior to this, the apartment will be sold at auction on Saturday 27 May at 12pm by Jellis Craig.

The luxury of the spaces, enhanced by the natural asset of northern light, captures the attention from the very first step into this spectacular apartment – and the further you explore, the more exceptional this property becomes.

A living/dining of outstanding size and style is the centrepiece of a design that includes a granite kitchen featuring Smeg and Miele appliances while French doors reveal the appealing proportions of a north facing balcony.

Independent access to the balcony complements a fabulous main bedroom accompanied by built-in robes, a walk in robe and a marble tiled ensuite while two further bedrooms and two additional bathrooms include a light filled second bedroom with its own ensuite.

Heating/cooling, complete security, lift access and allocated garaging mean this outstanding apartment, in a beautiful Georgian inspired building, makes the most of a setting so close to Toorak Road and Chapel Street’s great range cafes and restaurants.

AN EBONIZED C. BECHSTEIN GRAND PIANO*
OF AUSTRALIAN MUSICAL INTEREST

VIEW IN MELBOURNE

Chiara Curcio, Associate Head of Classic Furniture, Objects & Collectables, could not believe what she was reading when Judith Durham sought her advice about her personal piano; the very piano where Judith penned and created ‘Australia Land of Today’.

The Bechstein has been in Durham’s possession for some 45 years. She purchased the piano in Switzerland in 1973 and the piano followed her around the world until she resettled in Australia. The Bechstein was the special place where many songs were born and concert elements were rehearsed. When Judith bought her piano Ron Edgeworth, her late husband was purchasing his own Bechstein from Harrods. Now that Judith is selling her piano, it is her wish that a proportion of proceeds from the sale will go to the Motor Neurone Disease Association, for of which she has been National Patron since the death of her husband from the disease in 1994.

John Albrecht, Proprietor of Leonard Joel: “We are honoured to have been entrusted with this very special, not just musical instrument, but piece of Australian music and social history and even more excited that the public will have the opportunity to view first-hand a piano belonging to one of the Seekers”.

Chiara Curcio: “Researching this rare piano has taken on a whole new context for me given its relevance to Australian popular culture and in the process we learn more about this creative period for Australian music. I’m also touched that Judith has entrusted me to manage the marketing and sale of her piano and to find for Judith a new owner that will hopefully actively pursue the use of the piano for generations to come”.

Judith Durham: “Inspiring me since 1973 composing music and lyrics for my hundreds of inspirational songs, this beautiful, antique Bechstein Grand has a lightness of touch, which responds to every nuance of emotion”, says Judith Durham AO A.Mus.A. “I bought it in Lugano near where my darling late husband Ron Edgeworth and I lived in Switzerland. May its new owner experience my own joy of this piano through a lifetime.”
