Inside Christie’s Tours
Tuesday 15 January 2019

Monday January 14th and Tuesday January 15th, at 3.00pm

 Christie's, the world's oldest fine art auctioneer, has sold fine art, furniture, jewellery and wine since James Christie conducted the first sale in London on 5 December 1766. Ever since Christie's has continued to provide the perfect backdrop for the sales of the world's finest collections and greatest works of art before their auction.

We have arranged 2 “Inside Christie’s” Tours centred around their INTERIORS sale.  These sales offer a broad range of pieces for the home,  from antique furniture to modern design classics.  These curated sales are designed to appeal to both new and seasoned collectors with estimates starting at £800.

 The tours run for about one and a half hours which will include a 45 min tour around the galleries with our host, a 15 minute talk by a specialist, and a 30 min meeting in one of the boardrooms where the introduction to Christie’s continues – this will include tea, coffee, and biscuits.

 Numbers are limited, and tickets cost £28.00.  The tours will be at 3.00pm on Monday January 14th and Tuesday January 15th, at Christie’s King Street, St James’s (nearest Tune Green Park or Piccadilly Circus).

Tickets will be available at the October lecture and after October 3rd direct from lesley.tasb@virginmedia.com
