A special live auction is planned for the art & artefacts, that once adorned the historic sandstone floors & walls of Imperial Peking Harbourside at Campbell’s Cove in Sydney.

The collection on offer reflects the eclectic Asian taste of owner Alfred Lai who has operated the restaurant for over 30 years.

His flamboyant style was well known to suppliers, regular customers, local & overseas tourists and especially his many patrons, the stockbrokers of Sydney.

The NSW government has just commenced work to redevelop this area of The Rocks demanding the closure for 15 months of all existing businesses along that iconic pathway.

Everything from Imperial Peking Restaurant is to be sold.  Items include Buddha’s, lamps, Chinese ceramic, furniture & screens & paintings by Australian artist including Charles Billich [born 1934], & Chinese related Sydney historical memorabilia, prints & photographs.

The contents of the wine cellar of Imperial Peking Harbourside will be in our next wine sale planned for Saturday 23 September 2017.
