A Colonial period grindstone, worn over time & use from a circle to a beautiful oval.
Just found after years in the back of my shed, this elegant pair of mahogany doors from a library bookcase. Sorry to say never saw the rest of it. Excellent condition with original hinges and square bolts. Great if you were designing a library or smart kitchen. Size each 57cm x 125cm.
A superb quality pair of Japanese Meiji period ivory figures of fishermen. The baskets and nets reticulated, the engraved decoration with family mons to the garments and lac filled c. 1880
An extraordinarily rare pair of Anglo Cantonese 3/4 life size portraits of ‘European ladies’ – flower boat courtesans.
The tipped in collotype frontispiece from William Hardy Wilson’s “Old Colonial Architecture in New South Wales and Tasmania”, published 1924.
