Upcoming Auction | Strauss & Co

Strauss & Co is pleased to announce details of its final sale of 2021, an online-only auction of collectables gathered by experts from the company’s decorative arts, wine and fine art departments. The sale includes exceptional silver, furniture and ceramics from the 18th and 19th centuries, a rich list of rare Italian and Spanish wines, as well as important artworks in various media from the 20th and 21 centuries.
“The end-of-year sale has been divided into three parts, with staggered conclusions over three consecutive days, in order to do justice to the exceptional consignment of works on offer,” says Susie Goodman, an executive director at Strauss & Co. “This decision also enables us to better profile our collaborating partners and single-owner collections. We are delighted to announce that the multi-talented artist Sam Nhlengethwa has agreed to guest curate a session in our sale. Among his many achievements, Sam cofounded the Bag Factory Artists’ Studio, an important artist-led institution with whom we have an on-going relationship in the form of the annual Cassirer Welz Award.”
