Own a Piece of the Met

Own a Piece of the Met

Antique Lovers: have you ever wanted a distinguished piece of furniture or decorative art? Something of museum quality?

Well, get ready. On October 27, 2015, Christie’s in New York City will be auctioning 200 lots of English furnishings from THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART!

Our real challenge has been to determine which pieces belong in a museum and which, on the contrary, would sing louder and better in someone’s home.–Luke Syson, curator of European sculpture and decorative arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Proceeds of the sale will benefit the Met’s Acquisitions Fund.
