Important Collections

Over our 100 year history, Leonard Joel has been entrusted with the auction of some of the most interesting and important collections in Australia.

Leonard Joel celebrates every collection and the collectors who created them, devising highly targeted marketing and media campaigns, beautifully illustrated catalogues and expertly managed auctions which lead to outstanding auction results.

In 2017, Leonard Joel was honoured to present The Decorative Arts Collection of the late James Fairfax AC which sold for $1.74 million over two days in Sydney (twice its pre-auction estimate) as well as The Kozminsky Collection of Fine Jewels and the 1909 Ashes Urn as part of The Monty Noble Collection of Cricketing Memorabilia. In 2018, Leonard Joel sold The Estate of Lady Porter in Adelaide and The Hose Collection of Clocks, the most important collection of its kind ever to appear at auction in Australia.

Recently, we offered The Magical Studio of Mirka Mora at auction.
