Auctioneer's note: This is the estate of a respected Christchurch builder and master craftsman. An exceptional array of antique hand tools will be offered for sale. Every week the owner would purchase a new tool, take it home fix it if needs be, sharpen the blades and as a results we have a lifetime's collection of beautifully restored and functional tools. The collection is rich in variety and quality. Many of the tools are unique, unusual and extremely collectable.

In an attempt to enable as many collectors benefit from this estate we have taken the tools and created a dozen or so custom-built tool boxes.

It's hard to do justice to great tools in a photograph so viewing is essential. You will not be disappointed.

The gentleman's estate we are auctioning was also a collector. So many of the items that we have to offer will be box lots, or combination lots. He doesn't have one cut throat razor he has fifty for example (probably more). What this means for the auction-goer is we have a treasure trove of items to collect.

Other highlights include: Collections of Victorian jug and bowls, father bairns shaving mugs, cut throat razors, antique weighing scales, Dictaphone, Decca record players money tins, vast record collection, piano, children’s annuals and Disney comics...

Victorian banjo barometer, suitcase containing sheet music, hundreds of vinyl records - 78s, old bottles, Maori mere and fossilised shell, miniature tortoiseshell guitar, large collection of Carters and Millers antiques price guides.

But there is more...

Deco-styled furniture, linen, kerosene lamps, lamp parts, shades, pewter, silver plate, huge collection of shop scales, collections of rulers, paintings...

This is a lifetime of collecting! This is a must-view auction!
