LONDON.- In January 2014 Christie’s will once again offer the only dedicated Ski Sale worldwide, with the 16th consecutive annual sale set to take place on Wednesday 22 January 2014. Celebrating the golden age of travel, from the turn of the twentieth century through to the 1950s, when skiing holidays became increasingly popular as new transport links gave greater access to this exhilarating holiday option, the auction will comprise over 200 lots of vintage posters and vintage Louis Vuitton luggage.

The most beautiful and dynamic ski tourism posters were produced during the early 20th century as the first resorts competed to be recognised as the most glamorous, with some of the finest designers and artists commissioned to create stylish advertisements urging holiday-makers to visit. Today, the market for vintage posters goes from strength to strength with its ever-growing collector-base, attracted by the colourful, decorative, skillful and largely affordable designs, perfect for home or chalet decoration.

The name Louis Vuitton has become synonymous with luxury travel having catered for the discerning traveller for over 150 years. Vuitton was first and foremost a craftsman, creating innovative pieces including the monogrammed LV suitcase, which are now icons of today. The Ski Sale will offer the opportunity to acquire trunks and suitcases, in monogram, striped and checkerboard styles – each piece of luggage telling a different story, through the Luxury Liner labels or bold initials of their original owners; estimates from £800 to £7,000.

This year we are very proud to be partnering with Skiing with Heroes for a special reception and charity auction on 16 January 2013, ‘A Call to Action’. Founded by Gilly Norton and chaired by Lord Glentoran, Skiing with Heroes is a charity which takes wounded ex-soldiers for a week’s adaptive skiing every year to help build their physical and emotional strength before helping these veterans to get back into work.
