Stands 14 & 15 Tyabb Packing House Antiques


Your premier destination for antiques on The Peninsula

Welcome to an amazing collection of rare and spectacular items sourced from around the world on display at stands 14 and 15 within Tyabb Packing House Antiques.

All items are displayed with full and detailed descriptions for your information. 

We are Graham and Hazel, (both past retirement age), and still in the antiques business today simply because of our passion for the trade and the “thrill of the chase”.  We search the world, constantly adding to a rare collection showcased for your browsing and shopping pleasure.

We share your passion – it’s as simple as that!

The majority of items stocked are by noted and leading artists and makers of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

On display are the largest collections in Australasia of “Tiffany Studios” and “WMF” (Wurttembergische Metallwarenfabrik) creations from the abovementioned period, together with a superb collection of important French glassware by famous makers such as Galle, Daum, Muller Freres and Lalique.

The diverse and extensive collection on show also features a huge range of other decorative and luxury items from the Art Nouveau period, crystal from the American Brilliant Period, 19th century Oriental wares, perfume bottles, 1920s American piano and desk lamps, English porcelain and silverware and a select range of decorative items of the Art Deco period.

We are also the largest suppliers of totally original English and European banquet oil lamps and parts thereof, in the Southern hemisphere, and we are very happy to address any questions or problems that you may have with your treasured lamp or lamps.

If you are a fan of England’s “Antiques Roadshow” you will certainly love our store with its’ exclusive range of rare items, and again, we are happy to address any questions that you may have regarding your items.

The items we stock must meet the criteria of being unique, rare or beautiful and preferably all three.

Because our stock is sourced internationally items are “fresh” to the Australian market and, as such, are sought after by our discerning public and antique dealers alike.

Our contacts, research and sourcing facilities refined over 47 years in the trade have enabled us and continue to enable us to discover those rare, unique and sometimes ‘museum quality’ treasures.

If you are seeking an investment piece or a special gift for a special person we are sure that you will find that “something special” in our unique collection.

Each item sold, if required, comes with a full written description and guarantee, attesting to the maker, date and place of manufacture, and any other information to hand at the time of purchase.

Pay us a visit and enjoy!!
