Sotheby's Auction House

In the heart of London on New Bond Street in 1744, an exceptional auction house was born. That house built a revered tradition of uniting collectors with world-class works of art and marketing the world's most cherished possessions, a tradition that, now over two centuries old, provides authentic knowledge comparable to none.
