Sale Notes:
Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers presents an exquisite traditional weapon auction on Wednesday 12th December at 10 Baltikavej, in Copenhagen's Nordhavn. We are presenting a total of 227 lots featuring a comprehensive range of the finest hunting guns, Oriental arms, rare Danish collector's items, many of which have never before been seen at the market - and last but not least, a number of tusks, narwhal tusks, etc. One of the highlights of the auction is a Belgian double rifle in almost mint condition, made by August Lebeau-Courally. It was produced in 1965 for N.H. Pino, who only used it for a single safari, where he shot a buffalo, an elephant, and a rhinoceros with it. It could also be worthwhile having a closer look at the auction's many guns from the world's most outstanding gunsmiths - including an exquisite collection of exclusive hunting arms from Boss & CO., James Purdey & Sons, and Holland & Holland. In addition one of the auction's sections is devoted to Count Werner D. Schack's (1922-2004) exceptional collection of clubs from Oceania, the magnitude and quality of which has never before been seen on Danish soil. His family resided at the Schackenborg Castle in Southern Jutland from the mid 17th century until 1978. Over time, Count Werner D. Schack built an in-depth knowledge and an ambitious collectorship. Beyond all doubt, his collection of clubs is one of the most complete and interesting, privately owned, collections ever seen in Denmark. Up to now, the collection has been family-owned. For further information, please contact David Utzon-Frank on tel. + 45 8818 1221 / duf@bruun-rasmussen.dk. www.invaluable.com/bruun-rasmussen . Bid live! online with Artfact or Invaluable.
