Comment: Tom Rooth, Head of Sale, Christie's South Kensington said:

We are delighted with the result of the first Sporting Art, Wildlife & Dogs Sale held at South Kensington since 2007. Extremely well viewed, with strong pre-sale interest, the sale saw numerous exceptional prices, including new world records established for Sir Peter Markham Scott, Edward Douglas and for a Lionel Edwards watercolour.

The sale had a strong presence of private clients, and all categories performed extremely well, making it the highest value Sporting Sale at South Kensington since 2001, and the highest sold lot value ever (an average of £6,200 hammer per lot).

We are now inviting consignments for the next Sporting Art, Wildlife & Dogs Sale, which will be held at South Kensington on 11 November 2010.”
