Our Client, based in Melbourne, collects toys and models that were manufactured in Australia, the vast majority of which are between 50 and 100+ years old. And – given that we are talking about toys – most are cosmetically in poor shape by the time he acquires them. A retiree, our Client devotes much of his time to restoring the toys and models in his collection, which has now grown to hundreds of items. There is recognition of the value of his collection, with a Curator and team from Sydney’s PowerHouse Museum visiting our Client in 2014 to photograph and document the collection, with a view to preparing a book on the subject. Recognizing the need for a long-term plan for the collection’s future, our Client has made arrangements for the future transfer of his collection to one or more Australian Museums.
