The sale, set for March 9, follows Mallett’s review of the company’s future in the light of the success they have enjoyed in New York since opening a branch there three years ago and the updating of their main London branch in Bond Street.

Some of the Bourdon House stock has been absorbed into these other branches but the remainder, along with other selected pieces from the company stock, will make up Sotheby’s auction.

Mallett used Bourdon House with its impressive interiors to display an eclectic mix of 18th and early 19th century Continental and English furniture and objets d’art, glassware, paintings and statuary to great effect in trademark room-setting style.

Sotheby’s will recreate the Bourdon House look at their Bond Street rooms for the view prior to the sale.
