On 27th September 2012 Sotheby’s will hold its inaugural sale of ‘Collections’ offering clients a wonderful opportunity to admire and acquire a wealth of Fine and Decorative Art dating from the 16th to the 20th Century. Focusing on property sourced from private collections throughout Europe and often with an Aristocratic or distinguished provenance, the sale has been carefully curated in order to offer exciting and decorative privately owned items that are fresh to the market – and in the case of specially commissioned items for the very first time in their history. Assembled from a diverse array of locations, from the grand state rooms of a Roman Palazzo and the dusty attics and vaults of a German Schloss, to the refined Edwardian Great Hall of a Lutyens designed English Manor House, ‘Collections’ will offer a combination of decorative and important objects from the following disciplines: English and Continental Furniture, Clocks, Tapestries, Rugs, Ceramics, Chinese Export Porcelain, Silver, Objects of Vertu, Sculpture, Old Master Paintings and European Paintings. This intimately curated sale offers a colourful kaleidoscope and a fresh glimpse of historic works that should delight the decorator, connoisseur and collector alike.
