A MUCH RESPECTED COLLECTION YIELDS OVER 14 MILLION EUROS AT CHRISTIE'S
08 March 2017
Category : MARKET

On 7 March 2017, Christie's Boniface de Castellane and Anna Gould ‘A way of Life' auction achieved a total of €14,266,563  with a magnificent view of the Plazza San Marco by Francesco Guardi fetching € 6,738,500, the highest price achieved by far for an old master painting sold at auction in France over the past two decades..  

These exceptional results reflect the relevant choices Boni had made when furbishing his legendary Palais Rose with the most exquisite works of art. Its celebrated provenance and the pristine quality of its works attracted bidders from 19 countries across five continents, establishing once again Christie's France's leadership in selling collections with success. 

Connoisseurs, collectors and institutions, such as the Sèvres museum and the Lyndhurst museum –Anna Gould's childhood home in the state of New York have acquired 96% of the sale, demonstrating continued interest in high quality 18th century pieces. The Palais Rose's famous Boulle furniture achieved strong prices, as illustrated by the Louis XVI pair of meubles-à-hauteur-d'appui by Etienne Levasseur and Adam Weisweiler which sold for €818,500  and the Louis XIV console attributed to André-Charles Boulle ac hieving  €506,500. Important decorative art from the period also performed very well, as shown by the Sèvres porcelain vases which realized €206,500 against a presale estimate of €80,000-120,000  and a George III clock attributed to James Cox which fetched €290,500 .

Art Déco works by Cartier where also among the highlights of the sale, as the Mystery Clock achieved €686,500 against a presale estimate of €150,000-200,000 (lot 18) and the ‘Jardin Japonais' desk set achieved €1.118.500, a new record for an object by Cartier sold at auction.
