It is aptly summed up by Mallett’s managing director Giles Hutchinson-Smith; “In this our 150th year, and following the acquisition of the company by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions, now is an ideal time to mark out how we will continue to grow the identity of our unique brand in today’s fast moving art market. The company’s enduring focus has been on a multi-disciplinary object-driven desire for creating the beautifully furnished spaces so appreciated by our clientele. With this auction of specially selected lots from our large reserves of stock, Mallett’s unique style will be introduced to a much larger global auction audience. Buyers are being offered an insight to Mallett’s specific taste, carefully honed over these past 150 years, mixing important furniture with objects of fun and fantasy. Mallett will naturally continue to promote connoisseurship with a renewed focus on exceptional pieces from private collections worldwide spanning 17th century masterpieces to ultra-modern design.”

The auction is being conducted by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions, who as you will see from the above are Mallett’s new owners.
