Hayward’s Auction House has prepared another of our popular online Vintage, Antique and Collectable auctions, and we are now open for viewing. The auction runs until Tuesday evening, June 1, with lot 1 closing at 6PM and, as usual, we have wide range of goods on offer and a full catalogue with photos of each lot available on our website:
Fine china collectors will find a lot to love in this auction from Royal Doulton Gnomes and other series ware to Moorcroft vases, Beswick Clydesdale horse and mallard duck, and other animal figures, majolica and amphora vases, a Royal Winton Maoriland plate, a Crown Staffordshire floral and bird figure, and a nice assortment of Royal Albert, Carlton ware, Branksome, Temuka, a fine pair of NZ Railways cups and saucers, a large lot of Royal Stafford Dunedin Town Hall pictorial dinner and teaware, and much more.
This auction also features a stylish 1920s French pull-out divan bed – it’s in need of new upholstery, but the mechanism is in fine working order. Other furniture includes a Victorian mahogany secretaire with flame veneer drawer fronts and fitted interior, a mixed timber veneer top dining table with bergère-back chairs, oval pedestal loo tables, carved, inlaid and glass-topped occasional, side and coffee tables and sideboards.

And something for the local railway buffs – a large number of engineering plans, blueprints and original technical drawings from the Hillside workshops.
Books include local and New Zealand art, history and travel books, with titles from Thomas Bracken and Lady Barker, Victorian novels, 2 signed Margaret Atwood novels, and a large assortment of vintage geological and paleontological publications.
