Russell Crowe clears out royal memorabilia at Sydney Antique Centre

Actor and monarchist Russell Crowe recently bought out nearly all of the Sydney Antique Centre's collection of historical memorabilia relating to the British royal family – including china marking the coronation of King George in 1911.

He is not the only public figure to have found a bargain:

  • Nicole Kidman was a frequent visitor to stalls selling vintage clothing, and particularly liked a sleek 1950s gown,a stallholder said.
  • Former Liberal prime minister John Howard bought office furniture,
  • Former Labor prime minister Paul Keating bought a beautiful vintage Bally poster as a gift
