Since Samuel Baker founded Sotheby's in London in 1744, the company has occupied only two primary locations—the Strand, where we were housed until 1917 and 34-35 New Bond Street, where we have been ever since. Located in the heart of London's Mayfair district, Sotheby's auctions offer an extraordinary diversity of objects and works of art from Impressionist & Modern Art and Contemporary Art to Old Master Paintings, 19th Century European Art and Islamic Art, as well as Decorative Art from Porcelain and Silver to French & English Furniture amongst many others. The history of Sotheby's in London is marked by numerous watershed moments in auction history such as the 1958 sale of the Goldschmidt Collection—an Evening sale of Impressionist & Modern Art that established the gold standard for Impressionist & Modern Art and Contemporary Art. During the past year, our sales in these categories have incresed by 170 percent and a new benchmark was established in February 2010 when Alberto Giacometti's L'Homme Qui Marche I achieved $104.3 million—the auction record for any work of art at the time of sale and the current record for any sculpture at auction. High-profile sales of renowned private collections such as The Attic Sale at Chatsworth, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Devonshire and The Robert Devereux Collection continue to attract an international audience and perform exceptionally well. Sotheby’s London offers comprehensive services for clients worldwide. We provide estimates and insurance valuations for all collecting categories and can also advise on shipping, buying and selling with Sotheby's. At present, we are actively seeking consignments in all collecting areas for inclusion in upcoming sales. Please note that Sotheby's Cafe, located in the New Bond Street auction house, serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.
