English Furniture & Works of Art

Featuring such renowned makers as William Kent, Thomas Chippendale and Matthew Boulton, Christie’s offerings of Chinese Export wares, English furniture and works of art cover a wide range of design periods and regions, including Ireland and Scotland.


In addition to our Exceptional sale and The Collector sale, we showcase single-owner collections and themed auctions such as in 2018 that marked the tercentenary of the birth of Thomas Chippendale. Christie’s also holds several auctions dedicated to English country homes — large and small — which frequently provide rich resources for collectors, dealers and decorators seeking classic English styles.


Christie’s has realised numerous record prices for English furniture, including the Anglesey desk (1993), the Dundas armchairs (2008) and the Kenure Cabinet (2008), reflecting both our trustworthy expertise and our long-standing relationships with both sellers and buyers.
