Christie’s is pleased to present The Collector from 23 March-7 & 8 April, offering a curated selection of fine European and English furniture and works of art, ceramics, silver and Chinese works of Art spanning from the 17th to 20th centuries.

The sale features several prominent collections of English furniture featuring iconic makers such as Gillows, Cox and Worster, and John Linnell.  Highlights include a core group of George II solid mahogany seating furniture, Neoclassic designs of the Regency period and scarlet and black gilt-japanned cabinets from The Barbara Allen de Kwiatkowski Collection.
