All good things come with time: London spring Islamic Week will go ahead in June

London and Paris have closed the doors of exhibition rooms and while some houses have postponed their sales, other have decided to use this unprecedented opportunity to shift their focus onto online auctions. Until then, only Bonhams had held dedicated online sales between their two main auctions, but for this occasion, Millon et Associes and Chiswick rose to the challenge with overall very positive results.

While Millon and Chiswick choice led to a great success for both auctioneers, Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Bonhams and Dreweatts decided to postpone their live auctions until safer days. Auctions will be held the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th June.
