LONDON.- Christie's announced a new collaboration with renowned decorators and antique dealers Robert Kime and Piers von Westenholz will take place in its South Kensington saleroom this September. The auction, Robert Kime and Piers von Westenholz - AN ENGLISH TASTE, to be held on Wednesday, 26 September, will incorporate a broad range of items: classic textiles by William Morris; the furniture of A.W.N. Pugin and Sir Robert Lorimer; pictures by Paul Nash, Simon Bussy, William Crozier and Dame Elizabeth Blackadder; as well as a more culturally diverse aesthetic lead by Uzbek susani embroideries and Robert Kime’s own signature soft furnishings. The sale will feature some 450 lots, and with estimates ranging from £300 up to £25,000, there is something for every collector. The sale as a whole is expected to fetch in the region of £600,000.

Gemma Sudlow, Specialist and Head of Sale comments: “Following on from the popularity of property offered by these two tastemakers in the past, we were only too delighted to embark upon another fabulous project with Robert and Piers that is sure to bring the salerooms to life with colour this September”.
