Artist's Description

This wonderful collection of glass items was found in the old schoolhouse kitchen, in Garroorigang Historic Homestead on our recent RB Rumble to Goulburn (NSW, Australia ). What a privilege it was to wander through this unique heritage home lived in by the collateral descendants of Explorer Hamilton Hume. Filled with a rare collection of 150 years of colonial and Australian history, Garroorigang is included in the Register of the National Estate as a site of national significance. (Goulburn is situated on the Hume Highway, named after Hamilton Hume.)

Starting life as an Inn, then moving through a period where the Inn was converted to a “gentlemen’s school” with such illustrious students as General Sir Harry Chauvel , commander of the Australian Light Horse at the capture of Beersheba in WW 1, Impressionist painter John Peter Russel, test cricketer HH Massie as well as members of a number of important pastoral and business families from the period, the residence is now very much a “Hume” private home where visitors can experience living history;
