Success For The Sotheby's Paris Design Sale

Highest Total For A Design Sale In France Since 2001

Sotheby’s Paris Design sale achieved a final total of €7.8 million, the highest total for any auction in this field since the market opened in France. International buyers, many of them from Asia, attended the event in force, eager to discover fresh-to-the-market pieces with perfect provenance.

The auction included a section devoted to Alberto and Diego Giacometti on the 50th anniversary of Alberto's death. It was a triumph, totalling €3.1 million, with 100 % of lots sold and 95 % selling above their high estimates. Some forty pieces by Georges Jouve, which came from various private owners, were snapped up by collectors. The 46 lots totalled €527,000, with 80 % of the lots exceeding their estimates. The highest price of the sale went to Claude Lalanne for a Banquette Crocodile, a gilt bronze bench, (lot 150), which achieved €459,000, surpassing its estimate of €200,000–300,000.
