The Collector, our seasonal sale of decorative arts, returns this September with an eclectic range spanning across the 16th and 20th centuries.

For the London edition, Charlotte Taylor serves as tastemaker and highlights from the auction are presented in a remarkable contemporary digital setting. Charlotte’s work crosses boundaries between the physical and digital, playing with texture, light and form, using interesting furniture in contemporary contexts. The digital interiors she has created are inspired by mid-century architecture with influences from across different eras. The compositions illustrate timeless and contemporary ways to display and curate decorative arts.

The sale is led by private collections, including gold, silver, fayence and porcelain from the collections of Charles Gladstone and Robert G. Vater. The offering include pieces by Charles Le Bastier, Jean Georges Remond, Esaias Fernau Robert Sharp, Paul Storr and James Garrard and provenances from the Late Albert Marber and Baron Henri de Rothschild.

Other highlights in the sale are two important Swiss musical enamelled snuff-boxes, including one with an automaton, a George II tripod table after Frederick Hintz, a lacquer bonheur du jour by Dasson, 16th century maiolica, and a spectacular Louis XV fauteuil, amongst many other remarkable and noteworthy pieces.
