As the December auction calendar commences, only a few standout sales remain before the start of the Christmas period and year’s end. When this year began, we knew it’d be difficult to repeat the results of 2017 (one of the most iconic years in auction history), the sales of the Leondardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi and Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona helped cement a wild year in the record books.
