“Whether you’re wondering how much grandma’s old mantel clock would bring at auction or have a secret desire to begin a collection of 19th century percussion pistols, The Australian Collectors’ Guide is the place to start.   Written by a team of experts and with photographs of more than 500 items and estimates of their values, The Collectors’ Guide is the ideal introduction to the world of collectables – from toy cars to teddy bears and silver spoons to typewriters.
Antony Davies joined Sotheby’s in England and spent fifteen years with them, working in several countries.  He has owned and restored some twenty veteran and vintage vehicles since the age of fourteen and has completed hundreds of thousands of miles around the world in his cars, including circumnavigating Australia in a 1925 Ford and crossing the Sahara Desert in a 1950s Morris.  Antony founded the Wemyss auction hours in Sydney in 1996, and conducts weekly specialist auctions throughout Australia.”
