After the seasonal lull in the auction world during the summer months, the September 2017 auction calendar is jam-packed with auctions featuring everything from fine art to jewellery and watches to luxury cars. See our featured auctions and the full auction calendar below.
This is set to be the ‘most significant single-marque sale in auction history’, which is a bold accolade to back up. With RM Sotheby’s already being the market leader in sales of important Ferraris, this auction is set to feature classics, modern day super cars along with GT’s and racing cars. The most expensive of all Ferraris on display will be the 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, with a high estimate of €9,500,000 (£8,736,000).
Being true to the authenticity of the event, the auction will take place at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy. The event starts at 4:30pm CEST and will run for approximately 2-3 hours. Truly an event not to be missed for Ferrari enthusiasts.
Christie’s First Open sale will be held at King Street for the first time since the Kensington auction house closed for good. This auction will be a good indicator as to whether the closing is going to affect the post-war and contemporary art consigned in upcoming auctions. The most expensive item for sale is the ‘Intersuperficie curva bianca (White Curve Intersection) 1967’ by Paolo Scheggi, coming in with a higher estimate of £150,000. The auction will take place on September 15th at 1pm GMT.
The first sale on our featured list from the September 2017 auction calendar to take place on American soil, the Bonhams’ Fine Jewerly auction will occur in Bonhams’ New York auction house, starting at 1pm EDT. The auction features extravagant and luxurious jewellery, ranging from rings to earrings to brooches. The ‘Emerald and Fancy Colored Diamond Ring’ tops the most expensive list coming in with a high estimate of $300,000 (£230,000). The ring a symbol of elegance and features a large emerald stone encrusted with precious diamonds.
