The Estate of The Late Alida Haskins widow of Sam Haskins


The contents of the Southern Highland’s home of the late Alida Haskins and her late husband Sam Haskins, who was a world renown fashion photographer, will go under the auctioneer’s hammer on Sunday 24 February in Burradoo, NSW near Bowral.

Over three hundred and fifty lots will be on view including country pine, stinkwood and geelhout(a native South African yellow wood) dressers, tables, chairs, dining tables, serving tables and hutches, a significant collection of 19th Century English copper and brassware, amber, cobalt and cranberry glassware and crystal, shaker baskets, rare advertising signage and tins, Asian and Australian ceramics and studio pottery, Victorian wall clocks and barometers, kitchenalia, Mason’s Ironstone, enameled metalware, South African artworks, library of books, large collection of apothecary bottles and canisters, garden furniture, South African brass and copper and ornaments and much more.

“Acquired over fifty years there are many unusual and quirky items which we don’t see any more and deserve a good home” says Managing Director Andrew Shapiro. Many of the pieces were purchased for their first home in Johannesburg, S.A. which they built in the 1950s and then for their second home which they built in Wimbledon, U.K.

The viewing will open on Friday 22 from 1pm-5pm and Saturday 23 from 10am – 5pm and Sunday 9am-12noon.
