Tullochs Auctions is Tasmania's favourite auction house, selling fine art, antiques, jewellery, collector cars, quality general goods and more.

You can find such treasures as artworks by Haughton Forrest, Andrea Locatelli, W.B Gould, John Glover, huon pine furniture and Sargison's spoons in our antique and collectables auctions, a Ford XB  Falcon coupe or a Vincent motorcycle at our collector car auctions, or maybe you need a fridge? You might pick one up at our general goods auctions!

To us, buying at auction shows you are savvy enough to sniff out a bargain and a rare treasure, it is ecologically friendly and expresses individuality, it is great way to find truly unique decorator pieces and household essentials.

Buying at auction isn't for a select few, it is for everyone and after all... why would you buy retail?

Buying with Tullochs

Here at Tullochs we've been listening to our customers. We've always separated our in-room auction days in to three distinct sales due to the different nature of the goods we sell and now we have three distinct auctions with online catalogues. You can even search the auctions using keywords! It sounds new, exciting and progressive, but all we' really done is formalise the old process. People often asked us when certain items are coming up in the auction day and now it is easier than ever to pin point this. Our standard auctions are: General goods at 9am with quality modern homewares and interesting bits and pieces, tools etc Collectables at around 10am, you find china, glassware, jewellery, coins, curios and art in this one. Furniture and antiques at 1pm we have our famous rugs, antiques and quality furniture as well as garden furniture and ornaments. Our online catalogues not only have a photograph of every single lot but you can lodge absentee (sealed) bids via the website so the auctioneer can bid up to your maximum on your behalf on auction day or if you really need to bid live we also offer phone bidding by prior arrangement. If three auctions on one day isn’t enough for you we also run regular timed online auctions so you can bid from the comfort of your own home- we can arrange shipping, and add the cost to your invoice, just let us know! Did you know that if an items been passed in at one of our actions, you can buy it right away without having to wait for our next sale? We are here to sell these treasures after all! See something you like? Chat with one of our helpful staff and they'll broker a deal between you and our vendor.

Superior Antique Auction 29th November 2017

Our next Auction should not be missed, it features the collection of the late B. Sundstrup which included some of the most important pieces of huon pine, and the most comprehensive collections of treen in the country, featured in publications. The auction features the only known pair of matching birdseye huon pine occasional tables in existence, having been in the collection of William (Bill ) Mitchell who had the largest and best collection of early colonial Huon pine furniture in Australia, his daughter the late Anne Sundstrup inherited them eventually ending up with the late Dr. Bertel Sundstrup. This is the first time they have been offered to the public, having been in the same family since the early 1900’s.

We are also pleased to present the large Haughton Forrest oil painting “Clipper of iron Pot Lighthouse” which comes with a certificate of authenticity.

We two smaller Haughton Forrest oil landscapes, watercolours by John Glover and many other pieces of attractive and important art.

Of particular historical interest we have a unique Thylacine trap from the Rocky Cape area in working and preserved condition and a colonial rug made of feral cat pelts.

There are too many objects of interest and value as well as fine pieces of furniture to list here but the whole catalogue with photographs can be found at Tullochs Auctions Catalogues

 

The Wonderful Rugs of Tullochs

An unexpected great feature of our auction rooms is our amazing quality imported oriental Persian style rugs, hand knotted in a great array of sizes and designs. Whilst we were a little perplexed by the appearance of the large number of exotic rugs here in Launceston, Tasmania we have been astonished at the quality and resilience the rugs have demonstrated, not only are they beautiful they are practical, hardwearing and warm, they can be refreshed with a brush and a sprinkle of water and stains tend to come right out! Don’t be fooled by similar looking but lower quality rugs, they tend to curl, move and hold stains. Our rugs are available all the time- not just through auction, if you find one you like we would love to broker a deal with our vendor to get you the perfect beautiful rug for your home.
