New Auction Schedule for 2015/2016
After careful consideration we have decided not to hold any further auctions in 2015. This means that we will cancel our traditional “Major Autumn Auction”, due on 21st November 2015 as per our schedule published early this year, and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Consignments for the November auction will be offered at our May auction in 2016.
This change in plan – which will no doubt come as a surprise – was motivated by various reasons, most of them organisational. Following the fantastic success of our “Ignazio Vok Collection, Selection 1” sale in April, we have been approached by several other renowned collectors to sell their important collections in single owner auctions, and to document them in lavishly produced publications. We have already begun the extensive planning and preparation process for these future projects. In consequence, we have been obliged to adapt and restructure our auction programme to suit the new requirements.
As the focus of our activities will shift to single owner auctions during the next few years, we require greater flexibility in scheduling our regular major auctions. We therefore regret that until further notice we will no longer be able to incorporate interim auctions into our programme.
Our revised schedule is as follows:
Our auction of the “Ignazio Vok Collection, Selection 2” will take place on , followed by our “Major Spring Auction” on . The sale of the first part of a further private collection is planned for the autumn of 2016. The third and final part of the Vok Collection will be sold in the spring of 2017. An auction of the first part of a third private collection will follow in the autumn of 2017.
