Works by Australian female artists such as Clarice Beckett, Margaret Preston & Emily Kngwarreye are in particular demand at present.

In addition to an art component, our regular Estate & Collector auctions present silver & jewellery, as well as select examples of the decorative arts - including (but not limited to) Asian antiques, designer objects, Australian & studio pottery, tribal & ethnographic wares. Individual collections and deceased estates feature prominently in these sales.

Provenance: Family of the Artist (a concept pioneered by Davidson Auctions), & Select International Editions are themed auctions held annually. As the names suggest, both are subject to special entry criteria.
