Dealing Design: The Sean Berg Collection - Christie's Auction

17 November '10

South Kensington
London

On the 17th of November Christie's will be hosting an auction of The Sean Berg Collection. Among the 140 lots for sale, DeTnk recommends watching two lots from Jean Prouvé.

During late 2008 and early 2009 Prouvé's auction prices dropped slightly. However since then his works have been selling for 70-50% over the estimated value. With one piece on auction November 9th at Sotheby's and two in this sale at Christie's we will see if Prouvé's work can continue reaching such high values.
