Tullochs Halves Sales Commission!

DO YOU HAVE AWESOME ANTIQUES, COLLECTABLES, SILVER, PETRONALIA, JEWELLERY…. YOU’D LIKE TO SELL AT HALF PRICED COMMISSION?!
October 2020 is the time!
Business is booming at Tullochs and we want to thank you! Throughout the COVID19 crisis, we haven’t had to lay off any staff or rely on Jobkeeper payments. In fact, we’re fortunate to have found and hired some wonderful new staff and we’ve been lucky enough to be able to donate substantial funds from estate sales to COVID19 vaccination research. We haven’t had to cut back on services or quality this year, in fact, we had to step up from fortnightly to weekly online auctions due to buyer and seller demand alike. We’re committed to bringing you quality lots in smaller auctions so you don’t have to waste hours sorting through items of little desirability. There’s no talk of putting up our rates, in fact, we’ve decided to give back again and for the month of October, will be cutting our selling commission rates in half (for items appraised at Tullochs as $200+). We understand that many people are still struggling and this is our way of helping out and thanking you for your ongoing support that’s enabled Tullochs to weather the storm.
Mention this promotion when you drop off your consignments to take advantage of the special rate!

Tullochs Initiative to Assist in the Times of the COVID 19 Pandemic

For the next 6 months, Tullochs will be donating 10% of the proceeds from all estate sales to CSIRO to aid their ongoing research into development of a COVID19 vaccine. Tullochs urges other businesses to also donate to these dedicated research institutions where possible. Jessie Reid, co-director of Tullochs says, “Community is everything and we want to do what we can to help our community get back on its feet, back to some form of ’normal’ existence. The global devastation from this virus is beyond words and we want to do our bit to help find a vaccine.” Jessie added, “Imagine what an impact there would be if big businesses, as well as small (where possible) came on board and also donated to this cause!”.

Superior Antique Auction 29th November 2017 Featuring the collection of the Late B. Sundstrup

Our next Auction should not be missed, it features the collection of the late B. Sundstrup which included some of the most important pieces of huon pine, and the most comprehensive collections of treen in the country, featured in publications. The auction features the only known pair of matching birdseye huon pine occasional tables in existence, having been in the collection of William (Bill ) Mitchell who had the largest and best collection of early colonial huon pine furniture in Australia, his daughter the late Anne Sundstrup inherited them eventually ending up with the late Dr. Bertel Sundstrup. This is the first time they have been offered to the public, having been in the same family since the early 1900’s.

We are also pleased to present the large Haughton Forrest oil painting “Clipper off Iron Pot Lighthouse” measuring 47 x 77cm which comes with a certificate of authenticity.

There are two smaller Haughton Forrest oil landscapes, watercolours by John Glover, a small old painting by Italian old master Andrea Locatelli and many other pieces of attractive and important art.

Of particular historical interest we have a unique Thylacine trap from the Rocky Cape area in working and preserved condition and a colonial era buggy rug made of feral cat pelts.

There are too many objects of interest and value as well as fine pieces of furniture to list here but the whole catalogue with photographs can be found at www.tullochsauctions.com.au
