Tiger Antiques & Art Auction
(13th August 2003)
Antiques, fine art, music and sports memorabilia will be put under the hammer (not literally!) by Eric Knowles from the BBC series Antiques Roadshow on Wednesday 13th August at Paradise Wildlife Park. The auction is being held as part of Tiger Conservation Month, the fund raising campaign for the survival of tigers in the wild.
A superb variety of items are available for auction including a signed Zinedine Zidane shirt (Real Madrid), a framed Tiger Woods picture, as a signed England shirt and a guitar signed by Eric Clapton. Works of art and sculptures (some lifesize), especially wildlife images, from the world-renowned Halcyon Gallery. Also up for auction will be Edwardian, Regency and Victorian furniture and many varieties of fine china, porcelain and crystal.
There will be two auction sessions, one between 3-5pm and then the main event in the evening from 7-9pm with visitors able to enjoy live entertainment between them. To make sure the evening goes with a swing, a licensed bar and barbeque will also add to the event.
Some of the auction pieces are collector’s items and highly sought after and therefore some will carry a reserve price. If you would like to see more comprehensive details of auction items please visit the website www.pwpark.com/tiger_web. All the money raised at this event will go to Tiger Conservation Month and help fund project around the world to ensure the safety of tigers in the wild that are under the very real threat of extinction.
