The Mogul: No 6 Roebuck

Circa 1910

Offered on behalf of his owner and a regretful sale.

Fully restored.

$6500. Offers considered.


Heathcliff: 52" D Type special extra carved Ayres - available with or without restoration

A particularly elegant example of a D Type Ayres, although the inaccurate saddle distracts from the well-observed anatomy.

Heathcliff can be enjoyed as he is but would benefit from an authentic re-restoration.





And something very, very special indeed:

Roebuck carousel horse

Very rare - see right

A wonderful opportunity to acquire a very special piece of Australian toy and fair history: a Roebuck carousel horse originally from the Foy & Gibson department store in Melbourne. This horse comes from one of only six carousels made by F Roebuck in the 1920s, of which not all survived the ravages of time.


Restored to the highest standard possible and is understood to be in immaculate condition. We are told that the restoration was done by Patricia Mullins.


The horse comes with certificate of authenticity and an appraisal from some six years ago.



For sale on behalf of owner. Asking $9,500 - reasonable offers will be considered. Located near Brisbane.


Packing and overseas shipping can be arranged.
