About the Item

Sotheby's catalogues from the Duke and Duchess of Windsor Auction from September 11-19, 1997. New York: Sotheby's, 1997. First edition soft covers with slip case. A three volume set with slip case of items auctioned from the Duke and Duchess of Windsor estate on September 11-19, 1997 (which was not held until February 1998 due to the death of Princess Diana.) The lots range from large scale pieces of furniture from their homes in France to many personal items of memorabilia, some of which dated back to the brief time when the Duke was known as Edward VIII, together with items from the wedding and other very personal pieces. The first volume is an introduction to the sale and the Windsors. It contains multiple essays on the couple, their lineage, their life, photographs of them, and much more. Volume two contains lots 1-1789 and includes property from the public rooms of the Windsor's former residence in Paris and historical material. Volume 3 contains lots 1790-3111 of the same.

  • 18th Century, Architectural Model of Doric Column
    Located in London, GB
    An extremely rare, exquisite architectural model of a Doric column England, third quarter of 18th century. Why we like it Exquisitely carved and having accents picked out in gold, this extremely rare survivor from the golden era of Classical architecture in Britain was perhaps intended for an architect's office, or for a study of a gentleman architect, such as Lord Burlington (1694–1753), who was famously known as the "Apollo of the Arts" and the "Architect Earl". Such exquisite and decorative objects were copied from ancient Greek and Roman originals, that aspiring architects could see and draw during their 'Grand Tour' in Italy, Greece, Ottoman Empire and etc. The only other comparable example of such rare objects that we came across was a set of three columns, previously owned by the late Sir Albert Richardson (1880–1964), architect, historian, writer, artist, teacher and sometime President of the Royal Academy –  sold by Christie’s London, 19 September...
