Auction

LIVING CHANNEL – Sundays from 22 July, 10.30pm

Every day is different in the world’s greatest auction houses. This fascinating series covers the huge range of art treasures which go under the hammer in London, Paris and New York. From a snuff box made from the timbers of HMS Victory, to a ‘ski chair’ made for the Maharaja of Indore in 1929 which may fetch over $2 million, a Qianlong Dynasty jade teapot and Mrs Thatcher’s handbag for $100,000 – it’s all in the auction rooms of the world.
