The Herbert Kennard Collection presented over 350 lots from the late Herbert Kennard reflecting his passion for late 18th century English furniture, especially satinwood. As well as furniture, he also collected all manner of associated works of art including a variety of different boxes, tea caddies and trays.

The Connoisseurs Eye: The Collections of Sir Nicholas Goodison & Michael Sim showcased beautiful objects from Sir Nicholas Goodison (1934 – 2021) the well-respected businessman, scholar, patron of the arts, polymath and philanthropist and Michael Sim, a leading antiques dealer in English furniture, clocks and scientific instruments. The shared connoisseurship of both collectors was manifest in a diverse and beautiful sale spanning many periods of art yet underpinned by a common theme: aesthetic beauty and flawless technique in objects, materials, and artists that were meticulously researched.

Previous single owner collection highlights include the auction of the largest private collection of 180 lots of rare prints and bronzes by the artist Salvador Dali to appear on the market in London.

The Masonic Collection of Albert Nice, this extraordinary collection of 550 lots encompassed masonic jewels, medals, ceramics, glass and books.

The auction produced record breaking prices for a Crown and Lion vase, a rare design with the underside impressed with the Royal stamp for the coronation of 1953.
