Science & Natural History

The Science & Natural History sales held biannually at Christie’s London encompass a wide range of objects and artefacts, from a billion-year-old fossil to a 17th-century astrolabe or a WWII Enigma machine. Representing some of the most important scientific discoveries of the modern world, we also offer rare books, scientific instruments, minerals and meteorites.

Recent sales have seen exceptional prices for these pieces, not just from collectors in this category but also art connoisseurs, demonstrating that these objects are widely appreciated for their beauty as well as their scientific value. Dedicated sales are held twice a year at our London saleroom, while more unusual pieces can also be seen in our annual Out of the Ordinary sale. Please do not hesitate to contact one of our specialists for a free and confidential valuation or to discuss the market.
