Antique boxes and over 600 lots sold April 10 Aalders Auctions > Sydney, Oz

Lifting the lid on history:
$5000 Rare indeed is this ivory and sandalwood Anglo-Indian jewellery box found in a Sydney bric-a-brac shop. It has been dated to before 1760."
$2500. This mid-19th-century Huon Pine box includes a roll-top lid and a secret compartment. When found, it was in pieces."

"Financial planner Jayne Gray is also a box collector. Her collection, which she compiled with her late husband, Gerry, concentrates on the rare and the unusual. About 60 boxes are included in the more than 600 lots to be sold on April 10 through Aalders Auctions in Sydney."
