The Fine Art Sale on the 26th November 2020 includes several collections from Private Estates.

The Estate of Mr Roy Moodie

Mr Roy Moodie, had a fascinating and successful banking career with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation in the 1950s, where he rose to a senior position in the company.  It was this time spent in the far east that encouraged his love and lifelong interest in Chinese artefacts, especially blue and white porcelain, jade and furniture. The black and white photograph is of Roy and his children at their Hong Kong residence in the 1950s.
