The James Fairfax Collection of Decorative Arts sells for $1.74 million
A chapter in the history of Brighton’s Bay Street antiques precinct came to a close today, when the stock in trade of Brighton Antiques was dispersed to an eager audience of local and interstate collectors at midday today in Leonard Joel’s Antique and Interiors Auction. Of the 146 lots offered, 90% found new homes, the total hammer price of $23,900 comfortably exceeding the estimate of $22,700 and proving that the right offering, sensibly priced, will always realise a strong result. Highlights included a large embossed Birmingham sterling silver table mirrorwhich realised $1,200 (IBP), an early 20th century oak and nickel framed display cabinet, which sold for $2,000 (IBP) and a Victorian burr walnut loo table, which found a new home at $2,300 (IBP).
