DUNbAR SLOANE IS DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT CHRISTOPHER DEVEREAUx WILL NOW bE PRESENTING THE fINEST JEWELS, WATCHES AND ObJECTS Of VIRTU IN ASSOCIATION WITH US IN bOTH AUCkLAND AND WELLINGTON.
With over 35 years in the industry, Christopher brings an unrivalled depth of knowledge and experience. Over the past 23 years Christopher has been associated with the Auckland auction house Webbs. During that time as an independent auctioneer, selling under his own licence, he single handedly achieved several NZ record sale prices.
His achievements have deservedly been the subject of public acclaim and have been widely reported in the media. from his leading role in the television series Going Going Gone to his frequent appearance in prominent newspaper articles, Christopher is probably the best known auctioneer in the country.
Who can forget the riveting stories that he told in the TV series of his sales which included a solid gold sheathed sword that was presented to Prime Minister David Lange and which had passed through the hands of controversial TV personality Paul Henry. The brooch that used to belong to aviatrix Jean batten that was bought by the late, and much beloved, Sir Paul Holmes. Then there was an exquisite gold box given by king Otto of Greece to a young naval officer Lieutenant bird who rescued the king when he was baled up on Corfu. Lieutenant bird went on to become the famous Admiral bird who explored the Antarctic with his ships Erebus and Terror, the former the name of the mountain that is etched in our history. More recently Christopher achieved an Internationally recognised price of $87,500 for a small, but exquisite, Lapis Lazuli, gold and diamond set box made by faberg which had been bought by the Austro-Hungarian Ambassador, Prince kinsky in London on Christmas eve 1910.
The current record prices in NZ at auction for a solitaire diamond, $229,000, an unset emerald in excess of $80,000, and a wristwatch at $85,000 were all achieved by him. Dozens of other notable achievements over the past 23 years are all recorded in the archives of the word class catalogues that he wrote for publication by Webbs.
Christopher is the only NZ based auctioneer who specialises solely in Jewellery, Watches and Objects of Virtu. He is the only auctioneer in NZ who travels regularly to International Jewellery fairs; not to buy, but so that he is always currently informed as to market trends, fashions and prices. With a Masters degree, Christopher brings scientific principles to his methodology and marketing, with proven success.
His expertise is now available nationally. based in our Auckland auction house he will also be available at our central Wellington auction complex on a regular basis.
Our first sale in association with Christopher will be in Wellington on Saturday July the 6th. A massive clearance sale of some 200 lots of desirable Jewels. The first Auckland sale will be held in August and will be of the exciting standard and variety that is his hallmark.

12 DUNBAR SLOANE AUCKLAND
Almost all of the following 245 lots are from a private New Zealand collection. The gentleman began collecting in the 1970s as his business afforded him extensive travel throughout Northern Europe, the Middle East, and South East Asia including Taiwan and China.
Inspired by the museums and art galleries visited, collecting started with mainly small sculptures, wood carvings, and paintings. Over the years it has turned into a serious hobby with numerous pieces purchased at auction throughout the world. Indeed, the auctions and galleries became the focal point of his travels. When visiting a Chinese porcelain exhibition 25 years ago his passion turned to this field of collecting. It grew to include Japanese and Korean porcelain, as well as Chinese.
The vast majority of pieces within this collection are period pieces . Within this collection are peri
