2016 Exhibition

Moorabool's 2016 'Fresh Stock' Exhibition, on until July 30th

'Dusk', or Astraeus, and the Anemoi, by Dihl et Guérhard, Paris, circa 1790


Moorabool is pleased to present our most recent acquisitions as an Exhibition in our Geelong premises. There's a fantastic variety of items, begining with a 100+ items of Worcester porcelain from a single collector, put together last century. This includes a plate from the Hope Service (1793) and Princess Charlotte's Service (1816) as well as some superbly rare printed & painted patterns on Teapots & other wares. Derby includes two different figure groups, freshly identified for the first time on the original pattern lists of the 1770's. Meissen includes a Kandler figure of the 'Printseller', left in the white, and a rare 'Winter' figure who is part of a wonderful 'plat de menage', both from the 1740's.

Sèvres includes the unmissable cup & saucer painted by Chappuis aîné, dated 1765, and a very rare triple salt. A large biscuit porcelain group of 'Dusk' and his four children - the four winds - is by Dihl et Guérhard, dating to circa 1790.  

staffordshire pottery catsOf a more frivilous nature is a collection of Staffordshire pottery & porcelain, from a bycicle rider to a monkey band, a fine selection of dogs, and even some vary scarce cats.

From a different age are two Greek bronze Kuros figures - one of the 'Orientalist' type, belonging to the Archaic period of the 6th century BC; the other shows the remarkable transformation that occured in the 5th century BC, with the Classical Greek world emerging and laying the foundation for Western society. In complete contrast, there's a fantastic collection of Tribal artifacts, mostly from an interesting local collection with a tale to tell. The gentleman was an RAAF pilot who served in PNG during WWII. Afterwards, he stayed behind - for the next 30 years - working in the Dept. of Native Affairs, travelling to remote tribes and collecting artifacts. 

There's also a selection of furniture, silver & glass.....  something for everyone!
