The Thursday Auction attracts an eclectic range of Furniture, Jewellery, Art and Objects every week and an equally eclectic range of people – from
avid collectors through to interior designers – making it this country’s most dynamic marketplace.
It was almost impossible to select our favourite pieces, so here are just a few!
AN ENGLISH MAHOGANY APOTHECARY
Sold for $2,980
This mahogany apothecary cabinet caught the eye of our Thursday team and has no doubt been repurposed inside a contemporary interior…
A GEORGIAN LEATHER FIRE BUCKET
Sold for $810
This rare, Georgian fire bucket, with a leather buckle handle was in excellent condition with hand-painted British insignia in gold-leaf and was bought by an interior designer with a keen eye.
First gaining in popularity during the late Victorian period, this example of the four vices cufflinks is from around 1920. The enamel for this fabulous example was in pristine condition with the hallmarks indicating they were hand-crafted in Birmingham.
Portrait of Creole Boy
oil on canvas
44 x 33.5cm
Sold for $8,060
This beautiful painting was estimated at $4,000-6,000 and after attracting much attention in the Art Salon viewing that week, sold for $8,060. The buyer is still trying to establish the identity of the artist, for whom we could find no record. However, regardless of origin, it’s one of our favourite pieces in recent years.
