To celebrate their one hundred and fiftieth anniversary Mallett are holding a sale of three hundred and seventy five lots specially selected from the stock held by their New York and London branches, with many of them having ‘come hither’ estimates and no reserve.The auction provides the opportunity for a new generation of collectors to acquire pieces from the 18th to 20th centuries that have the sense of style, taste and connoisseurship for which the firm is justifiably renowned.
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.
