London Marquee Evening Auctions show mixed results 

Despite increasing economic uncertainty and stock market volatility, the Marquee evening sales at Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Phillips in London this week raised a total of £295 million, against the pre-sale estimate of £287 million to £392 million. This was a 27.7% year-on-year increase from June 2021. The positive results were fuelled by Christie’s £160.8 million evening sales, accounting for 54% of the sale total. Sotheby’s came in at £120.1 million, below the low pre-sale estimate of £137 million and 7.8% lower than June 2021. Phillips re-entered the London summer season, after two years of absence, with a £14.3 million sales total (just above the low estimate of £13.6 million), but significantly lower than pre-pandemic levels.
