When I was looking for vintage props for our wedding I became a little addicted to checking websites of auction houses and placing online bids. Sure you miss out on the excitement of being at the actual auction but when you are living half way across the world from the actual auction you don't really have much choice.
Although the wedding has been and gone, my addiction continues and this week I discovered the most exciting of all exciting auctions yet. Auction 428 - Medical, Dental & Pharmaceutical items is happening on the 8th May at Leski's Auction House in Melbourne. 291 wonderful, quirky and in some cases, a little creepy, items!
Coincidentally my great friend Simon worked on this collection in his previous role, he has impeccable taste. It is my dream auction collection!!
These are my favourite items:
|Hospital heater on tripod with extension arm|
|Vintage dental instrument trolley on wheels|
|DISPENSING BOTTLES: with polished pontils, labels, 18cm tall, all in good condition & all with stoppers|
|Vintage hospital trolley with glass shelves|
|Group of prints (in frames) of hand drawn historical figures relating to the medical & scientific professions, including Charles Darwin and Pierre Curie. (9 items)|
|Imagine turning this vintage trolley into a table. Like this one here|
And there are a couple of things I won't be bidding on:
|Female hand held urinal!!|
|2 early vintage urinal bags|
Can someone who lives in Melbourne and won't have to ship their purchases across the country please buy lots of items so I can live vicariously through you?
