Recently, Ms Douglas was closely involved with Sotheby’s auction of The Hanover Collection that was held in Germany as well as the sales of Shrubland Park, Easton Neston and various single-owner collections, including those of the Château de Cornillon and of Mallett at Bourdon House. Ms Douglas has been involved in the highly successful Haute Époque sales of Early Tapestries and Continental Furniture since they began in 2002, where an important cross-section of European tapestries is represented.
