A KHOROSSAN CARPET FRAGMENT [DETAIL], NORTHEAST PERSIA, 17TH CENTURY. ESTIMATE £7,000–10,000
“Much like any other category of collectable, what defines an item of interest to a collector is a combination of factors. Is it rare, unusual and beautiful? Is it in as good a condition as possible? These elements, when presented alongside a compelling historical context, will pique the interest of even the most reticent collectors.”
Max the blue heeler led rescuers to the little girl.
“An old blue heeler named Max remained by the side of a three-year-old girl and led searchers to her after she spent more than 15 hours lost in rugged bushland on Queensland’s Southern Downs overnight.”
This morning, more than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police and members of the public resumed the search and found the girl safe and well with Max the dog at 8:00am.
“The area around the house is quite mountainous and is very inhospitable terrain to go walking in, so she’d travelled quite a distance with her dog that was quite loyal to her,”
“There was a little bit of dread going into it with a cold night last night, but to get such a positive outcome the volunteers are very happy, and will be tucking into a bacon and egg sandwich very shortly.”
Queensland police have declared Max an honorary police dog.
