Invitation to Consign: 20th Century Decorative Art & Design

The April auction of 20th Century Decorative Arts & Design will feature around 125 lots of selected works by the most famous designers and architects of the last 150 years. Furniture, ceramics, glass and metalwork from the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods will be exhibited alongside mid-century, post-War and contemporary design.

Designers included will range from early British pioneers such  as C.F.A. Voysey, William Morris and M.H. Baillie Scott to the leading proponents of Art Deco sculpture, Demetre Chiparus and Ferdinand Preiss.  More recent works will include pieces of Danish Modern design by Fritz Henningsen and Poul Henningsen and contemporary design by Mark Brazier-Jones and Ron Arad.

We are currently seeking consignments above £5,000 for the auction and would welcome the opportunity to discuss any pieces you may be interested in consigning.
