Leonard Joel’s Auction of ‘The Bolster Collection of Asian and Ethnographic Artefacts’

A TIBETAN SILVER, CORAL AND TURQUOISE NECKLACE, CIRCA 19TH CENTURY. Image courtesy of Leonard Joel.

New Zealand born environmental activist, Margaret Bolster AM was a patron of the arts and an ambassador for the appreciation of Indigenous, Asian and Pacific Art in Australia. In 1964, Margaret and her American husband, Thomas Bolster Jnr, opened Aladdin Gallery in Elizabeth Bay, Sydney, and were among the first to introduce Indigenous and Asian arts to the Sydney market.

The collection features a broad range of items including Himalayan and Tibetan artefacts and jewellery, Indian miniature paintings, central Asian textiles, Nomadic rugs, Khmer ceramics, Papua New Guinean and Oceanic artefacts.

Asian Art Specialist Consultant Carl Wantrup will give us a brief overview of key highlights of the auction.
