THE NGAIRE HART ESTATE COLLECTION
Tuesday, 26 May 2020

THIS AUCTION WILL BE HELD TUESDAY 26TH MAY STARTING 2pm AT OUR NEW PREMISES 553 MOUNT EDEN ROAD, MOUNT EDEN. Follow this link below to the Herald article about this auction https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12333761 Please note this is the auction postponed from 6th April. We will have on-line live bidding for this auction! For instructions, download the pdf below. Cordy’s are privileged to present the collection of the late Ngaire Hart, to be held at our new address 553 MOUNT EDEN ROAD, MOUNT EDEN, Ngaire’s enthusiasm for life encompassed many fields; an antique dealer, an adventurous world traveller; a photographer of nature and portraiture; an amateur botanist and keen tramper. Alongside these pursuits sat an abiding passion for collecting. Her Flickr albums1 are an insight into who she was - a traveller with an eye for culture. Although not an ethnographic art collector, she was a significant gatherer of ‘artefacts’ in the broader sense. In Aotearoa she invested in collecting folk art, objects and ceramics, with particular reference to Te Ao Māori. Wharetana ware and Jane Brenkley pieces carved with Maori motifs form the major pillars of this collection, on a foundation of further folk art expressed in wood and ceramics together with early colonial pottery. Ngaire was employed with Cordy's for a number of years and we knew her as a passionate collector until the end. We know she would be delighted to see her collection dispersed to fellow devotees. https://www.flickr.com/photos/eriagn/albums There are extra viewing times at our new saleroom 553 Mt.

STELLA VEITCH EST. & COLLECTABLE AUCTION 4PM START
Monday, 26 August 2019

CORDY’S STELLA VERONICA VEITCH ESTATE COLLECTION. SEE LOTS 300 TO 594 IN ON-LINE CATALOGUE This special addition starts at 6pm with lot 300 and runs to lot 594. (Note: lots 387 to 408 from another one vendor). Includes Stylish Vintage Labelled Clothing & Costume, Linen, Hats, Gloves, Swim Wear, Fashion Accessories, Jewellery Includes Heavy Gold Items, Stylish Vintage Costume Jewellery & Much More. Stella Veronica Veitch was born in Greenwich England in July 1927. The only girl in a family of three she had an older and younger brother. Her father William was the company secretary of the shipping line; The Union Castle, and he would regale the family with tales of foreign lands. Boxes of exotic fruits would arrive every Christmas. The family was comfortable. Stella learned to understand luxury at an early age and she looked forward to the seamstress coming to the house twice a year -winter and summer, to fit the children for their new clothes (last season’s clothes would be given to poorer families). A hairdresser would come to cut their hair and a cook was employed during the festive season. Stella the Traveller – Intrepid courageous: Qualifications in hand, Stella left the UK to start teaching in a British Army school in Egypt. Whilst there she rejected a marriage proposal from a handsome young medic saying ‘What? Give up the glories of Egypt to go back to England and wash your dirty socks?’. She worked in expat schools in Egypt and Libya before moving on to Bahrain where she found her niche teaching at the renowned Awali school and stayed for 15 years of ‘carefree living’. Expat teachers in the Middle East were treated well and every three years were given three months leave. Stella used this time to travel widely – Europe, Scandinavia Japan, Hong Kong, Iraq, India, Kashmir and Africa. At this time a single woman travelling alone was very unusual and required a certain strength of character. The stories and anecdotes from this time in her life nourished her imagination in later life. In those days travelling was mind-blowing in a way that is now gone. We can explore places and know things in the virtual world without ever moving out of our comfort zone, but then travel truly changed people. Stella craved the exotic and unusual and delighted in purchasing sumptuous fabrics and textiles See Herald article https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12260274
