Big brands expected to go for bargain prices in colossal Claremont auction!

This event has passed!

Cartier. Rolex. Georg Jensen. They’re names you’d normally expect to encounter at a premier New York auction house. But for two nights only, June 12 and 13, McKenzie’s Auctioneers in Claremont will be auctioning off prized jewellery by some of the world’s finest designer brands, as well as artworks, rugs, silver and furniture. And the most exciting part of all? Many items, particularly the jewellery, will likely be sold for around 75% less than their true value.

The jewellery collection alone comprises one showpiece item after another, including a thrilling array of watches and diamonds up to 6 carats. Designer brands also featured include, Audemars Piguet, Tiffany &Co. Linneys, Kailis, Rosendorff and Omega. All up, over 200 jewellery items will go under the hammer on the second night of the auction. Catalogue descriptions are guaranteed - each item has been examined by a gemmologist and, in some cases, come with the seller’s insurance valuation certificates.

Kicking off the two-day mammoth auction will be artworks of incredible value  featuring many of Western Australia’s and Australia’s best-known artists. The obvious stand out is by Western Australia’s own Guy Grey–Smith, whose 1960 work clearly shows the influence of Nicolas de Stael, a Russian artist whom Grey-Smith greatly admired. The art component also includes works by John Brack, Robert Dickerson, Robert Juniper, Bromley, Durack, Blackman, Boissevain, Donald Friend, Hans Heysen, Rupert Bunny, Sali Herman and many others including Aboriginal and overseas artworks.

Beautifully uncommon furniture pieces will also feature on the first night. Ranging from Georgian to modern, the unique collection includes some rare Western Australian colonial jarrah pieces, the best of which is a three-door chiffonier by George Wansborough of York. The second night of the auction will be spearheaded by the impressive jewellery collection. Nine hand-selected rugs, including some intricate vintage silks, will also feature to meet this growing sector of the collectables market.

The auction winds up with a diverse range of silver. Dutch, Scandinavian, English, Continental, Oriental and Western Australian pieces are all included. A key attraction will certainly be the ‘petite’ Stewart Devlin candlesticks, while significant Western Australian Linton pieces will also feature.

Pre-auction viewings will take place from 11am–4pm on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June, with additional viewings on Monday 11th June from 11am–5:30pm.

The auction will take place on site at 8 Stirling Road Claremont on Tuesday, 12th and Wednesday 13th June from 6pm.
