The set of the ten watercolours of Australian birds by H.H. Calvert was as fresh as the day they were created – a very rare find indeed.
VALUATION & OUTCOME:
We brokered the sale of these examples of H.H. Calvert’s watercolours of birds, and they achieved in total just under $ 40,000 incl. buyer’s premium– a result which was more than double the top estimate of $ 18,000.
The large watercolour of magpies feeding their young remains the highest price ever paid for a painting by H.H. Calvert.
