Catering to a breadth of tastes, this design and decorative arts auction will hold a special focus on private collections. Featured is a fine selection of Royal Worcester, with examples by renown artists including James Skerrett, Nigel Creed and David Shinnie. Elaborate vases and sumptuous potpourri by the historic firm are presented alongside refined Royal Crown Derby works, all fresh to market from a Glasgow town house.

Fashionable Mid-Century furniture will also permeate the sale. A number of the most choice pieces were acquired by a private individual with the discerning eye; with names such as Charles & Ray Eames, Robin Day, and Arne Hovmand Olsen making their way to auction via one Campbeltown-based property.

Viewing is open to the public from Tuesday 7th June at 9am.

Bidding is available in the room, by commission, telephone and online. To submit bids via this online catalogue, please sign in/register.
