Following the success of our June sale, we are seeking consignments for our London sale of Important Russian Art, 30 November 2015.
As global market leader, in the first half of 2015 Christie’s international team have sold seven of the top ten Russian works of art offered at auction in London and New York. The highlight of our New York sale and the most expensive Russian work of art sold at auction in 2015 thus far was an Imperial presentation snuff box by Hahn, which sold for $665,000 versus a pre-sale estimate of $120,000-180,000.
This year to date Christie’s have achieved sales totals that are almost 220% higher than that of our nearest competitor in the Russian Works of Art category. We hold a 62% share of the global market and have realised the highest totals for Fabergé and Russian works of art each season for five years.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for a free and confidential valuation of your collection or to discuss the market.
