Highlights

Since our inception in 2011, we have held a regular sales calendar of specialised auctions covering a broad range of collecting categories, with a particular focus on the Arts of the Indian Sub-Continent, both ancient and modern. Our carefully curated sales have consistently generated interest and excitement from seasoned collectors and first-time buyers alike.

Pundole’s has excelled in handling Estate sales, beginning with our inaugural auctions of the Estate of the late Dr. Jamshed Bhabha. Other estate sales include

The Estate of the late Ernevaz Dubash
The Estate of the late Laura Hamilton
The Estate of the late Noshir Nanporia
The Estate of the late Badrivishal Pittie

and, single owner sales in specific collecting categories such as the Art of the Himalayas from the Collection of Roshan Sabavala. The auctions have generated exceptional prices in various categories, with several records achieved. Pundole’s held the first stand alone sale of Indian antiquities and still retains the auction record for the highest price achieved for an Indian miniature painting and a Himalayan work of art in the domestic market.

Pundole’s has had four white glove sales in the last eight years.
