As most know, this is not our normal business focus and whilst we are not moving in the direction of Sotheby's or the like - this collection is a welcome change to the heavy industrial and highly technical equipment, for which our website auction-sales are best known.
Singapore (PRWEB) November 30, 2006
DoveBid Pty Ltd. (DoveBidAuctions) -- Although not entirely unprecedented - the international auction house DoveBid is once again entering the world of fine arts. In an upcoming internet based sale, they have named as 'The Sale of Three Centuries', they will be offering a unique private collection of art and artifacts spanning 300 years.
Though only several centuries old -- many of the pieces being offered in the DoveBid 'Three Centuries' auction are fully destined to become treasures in their own right and are most certainly significant in the record of Man's development.
The sale will see 88 items for auction with delightful pieces such as - Longines Hour Angle Limited Edition Watch, (solid 18K gold case with 18K rotating bezel); King Phillipe IV of Spain' Oil on Canvas (1891); Mickey Mouse Vintage Original Comic Strip (with Walt Disney's signature); 'Fisher Girl', and 'Girl with Basket' by E. W. JAMES (1816, Oil on paper); 'While Picking Tea', one of Four Scrolls of the Beauties by Chen Yuhe (1927, Original Watercolour) and many more, interesting and varied pieces…
"As most know, this is not our normal business focus and whilst we are not moving in the direction of Sotheby's or the like - this collection is a welcome change to the heavy industrial and highly technical equipment, for which our website auction-sales are best known." - Wim Giezenaar, VP Asia, DoveBid
Typical of a true collector, the owner has spent a great deal of time in selecting the items and preparing descriptions -- research he believes is essential to such a sale. Hence the assets are well photographed, from all angles, and described in detail with background information. If you prefer to view the items in person, by appointment, before the sale you can arrange a site visit also.
"We were approached about a year ago by the collector, who had become familiar with our sales programs. He wondered whether we could sell part of his private collection through what he perceived, from experience, to be a superior internet auction system." - Wim Giezenaar, VP Asia, DoveBid
The one-day, web-based auction is planned for December 5th 2006. More information about the sale and items offered can be found online at DoveBidAuctions.
