This captivating series features items of historical significance going under the hammer at New Zealand auction houses. In order to tell the stories of those who came before, we spiral back in time to reveal rich, dazzling and unexpected chronicles of the past. Cameras then follow the suspense and drama between the buyers and sellers as the items realise their prices in today’s auction rooms, where they eventually move on into the hands of their next custodians.
