Auction Highlights – 25th April 2019

From the Dawn ceremony to the last lot being sold last night – it was great day to just reflect and remember. Thank you to the punters that either left absentee bids or were able to make it last night. Art Deco still appears to be in favour with many items making the auction highlights. With an amazing auction already taking shape for next week – we hope to catch everyone there.
