Founded in 1766 by the British James Christie, this famous auction house sells a multitude of works of art, paintings, furniture, jewellery and wine every year.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, Christie’s acquired a high reputation for its popular auctions. Even the British royal family has entrusted them with certain possessions. Apart from the sales promoting the UK national heritage, Christie’s has long since established an international business. It became the top auction house worldwide, present in 32 countries with 12 sales rooms (London, New York, Paris, Genève, Milan, Amsterdam, Dubai and Hong Kong…). Christie’s also organizes sales in over 80 specialities, including decorative arts, jewellery and fine wine.
