Sale Overview

The January edition of The Collector reminds us of the timeless beauty and endurance of exceptional works of art crafted over the last 500 years. In the words of William Morris, ‘We are only trustees for those that come after us’ and  this sale showcases important European and English furniture, silver, ceramics, glass, clocks and gold boxes from the 16th to the 20th century, ready to enrich the most stylish interiors of our times.

The Collector features works from distinguished English and European private collections stretching from Danzig to Augsburg and Paris to London, with historical works from houses like Ickworth, Castle Howard, Port Eliot and Brynkinalt, and examples owned by landmark collectors such as William Beckford and Baron Gustave de Rothschild. Additional highlights include an important group of German silver tankards and beakers, works by Chippendale, Crace and Gillows, and a wonderful selection of services from Herend, Baccarat and Royal Copenhagen’s famous Flora Danica pattern.
