ONE hundred bottles of single malt whisky, a rare convict man-trap and a centuries-old Fijian skull, will be auctioned by Launceston auction house Tullochs Auctions tomorrow.
Director Scott Millen said the whisky sale was regrettable, owing to an interstate move, and that the wee dram would be sold separately.
Mr Millen said all five of Scotland's single-malt-producing regions were represented in the bounty with the most expensive bottle, a Highland Park cask aged for 25 years, expected to fetch just over $200.
He anticipated bargains in some of the better known varieties such as Glenlivet and Johnny Walker.
One bidder will leave the auctions this week with their own convict man-trap - effectively a rabbit trap for humans.
Mr Millen said the trap was unearthed in a shed on the East Coast after an elderly man had passed away some years ago.
A Fijian skull, found on the island in the 1920s, will be sold tomorrow - Mr Millen believed the skull could be several hundred years old.
An extensive marine antique collection is also up for grabs at the auction along with several colonial paintings.
Tullochs has all items available for viewing today.
The auction will start tomorrow at 9am and close at 5pm.
