The London Sale at Christie's
A collection of fantastic London-related lots have been on display at Christie's South Kensington over the summer and went under the hammer this afternoon for The London Sale. There was a lot of interest in the room and online, and a real buzz to the proceedings, which saw Tobias Till's London A-Z achieve £10,000 and Stephen Walter's London Subterranea £7,500. We'd like to congratulate them both!
Other highlights included a double-decker Routemaster bus, which achieved £67,250, and Simon Patterson's 'The Great Bear' which featured in our Art of Mapping exhibition last year and fetched £25,000. We recommend looking through the full catalogue for a wonderful array of exhibits.
