Harringtons Lifestyle Auction: Treasures of the Century

Harringtons Lifestyle Auction was held at the 4th flr of Century City Makati City last Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 2pm. The auction was billed as “Treasure of the Century.

The auction was the one of the many auctions that Harringtons Lifestyle Auction has made. They previously auctioned at Rockwell Tent and in Sucat, Muntinlupa. However, this is the first in Century City Mall.

True indeed, that the day of auction was full of art, antiques, and jewelries displayed in the gallery where your eyes can feast and where each item tells you stories from ages ago. You will surely find it amusing how these master pieces have witnessed stories in the past and still exist to tell them now.

This was my first experience to witness an auction. Almost 200 pieces were opened to bidders who were eager to get one of a kind pieces. As the bidding started, each lot was given a price range to which price can go lower or higher depending on the sellers price demand. Collectors can bid up to the highest price for a collectible item. Amazing how prices can go up to 10 folds when a masterpiece catches the eyes of collectors.

The auction also featured authentic and well curated collectible items from national artist Abdul Imao, Napoleon Abueva, Victorino Edades, Benedicto Cabrera, Romulo Olazo, and Jorge Pineda.

Also highlighted in the auction are captivating art wood mosaic pieces by Bagac Wood Mosaic Artists that consists of a group of people from Bagac, Bataan who used to be farmers and who thrives to pursue art as a living and make a name for their hometown amidst the difficulties of poverty. A very interesting artwork from wood that has been created with passion and hard work.

Artist Eduardo Castrillo’s intricately designed 18″x29″ delicately sculptured bronze Crucifix was also one of the highlighted pieces at Harringtons Lifestyle Auction which depicts the artist’s Christian beliefs.

Also, it became more interesting when jewelries were worn by pretty models. More captivating that the event was graced by Miss World 1st Princess Arienne Calingo.

True on how Harringtons Lifestyle Auction took the auction to a whole new level of experience. It was truly a day for art, antique, jewelry, and wine appreciation.

Harringtons Lifestyle Auction will have another date for you to look forward to, set your calendar as Century City Mall becomes a second home to Harringtons Lifestyle Auction this coming January 28, 2017.

I’d like to take this chance to say thank you to beautiful Mafae Belasco for the opportunity to experience a one of a kind event. Cheers to more success! God bless!
