Sale at the Savoy!

Sayoy HotelThe Savoy hotel in London is a national treasure and has had some of the most famous people of the 20th century sleeping in its suites and performing in its lounges. The hotel closed a couple of days ago for a 100 million pound refit and for the next three days they will auctioning some of the historic furniture, dinnerware and fittings from the hotel. You can pick up some very collectible items from china cups to the 12-panel, trompe l’oeil painted screen by Lincoln Taber.

Some other interesting things up for auction are a 24-light chandelier under which Noel Coward and Anna Pavlova performed and the contents of the Monet suit where Claude Monet painted a view of the Thames. My piece to watch is the white grand piano, which was often performed on by Frank Sinatra during his many stays at the hotel. Its expected to reach a modest 2-3000 pounds which would be an absolute bargain.

You can pick up some more affordable art deco treasures such as lamps and rugs, and even asparagus tongs. If you have ever stayed in one of the hotel’s magnificent suites and wished you could take something home with you pay a visit to the hotel between the 18-20th of December. To gain entrance you need a copy of the catalogue, which costs £30. If you want to bid, you need to register beforehand.
