NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s online sales from The Collection of A. Jerrold Perenchio achieved a combined total of $6,555,375 and attracted bidders from 33 countries. All net proceeds will benefit the Perenchio Foundation, whose principal mission is to support visual and performing arts programs and institutions located in Los Angeles County. The first online sale Chartwell: An Henri Samuel Commission (1‑16 September) totalled $4,551,875, and was 95% sold by lot. The second sale in the collection, A CALIFORNIA LIFE (1‑17 September) totalled $2,003,500 and was 99% sold by lot. The top lot of the collection was the Stradbroke' George III Axminster Carpet, possibly after a design by James Wyatt, England, circa 1790, which achieved $375,000, surpassing its estimate of $100,000-150,000 and realizing the highest price in 20 years for its type. A world auction record was also set for Henri Samuel’s work with an upholstered three-seat sofa selling for $35,000 above its estimate of $2,000-3,000.

Gemma Sudlow, Head of Private and Iconic Collections, comments: “We are particularly pleased that the extraordinary results from the two-part online sale of The Collection of A. Jerrold Perenchio will benefit the Perenchio Foundation whose principal aim is to support the visual and performing arts in Los Angeles County. The enthusiastic bidding across both sales was a testament to the taste and erudition of Mr. Perenchio as a collector. Further highlights will be sold in our Exceptional Sale in New York on the 14th October.”

45% of the lots in the collection exceeded their high-estimates including a pair of large Chinese cloisonné enamel censers, which sold for $250,000, above its estimate of $30,000-50,000, and a Chinese twelve-panel coromandel lacquer screen, Kangxi period, which sold for $212,250, above its estimate of $60,000-80,000.

Collectors will be able to discover another beautiful display by French Interior designer Henri Samuel on 1st October in our Parisian premises. Christie’s will present the remarkable private collection of Prince and Princess Sadruddin Aga Khan who entrusted Henri Samuel with the display of their collection in their Geneva home, Bellerive Castle.
