We are delighted to include in the January sale collections of furniture and works of art belonging to two knights of the realm. The first sixty lots belong to the eminent theatrical impresario Sir Michael Codron. Sir Michael is a great champion of new British writers and plays and is well known for his early productions of the works of Tom Stoppard, Harold Pinter and David Hare. He has produced approximately one hundred and thirty West End shows and he is the administrator of the Aldwych Theatre. He graduated from Worcester College, Oxford and was made an Honorary Fellow in 2012. He was appointed CBE in August 1989 and was knighted in 2014. His diverse collection, formerly furnishing his London flat, has been collected over the last fifty years. Highlights include a Regency centre table in the manner of Marsh and Tatham and a Queen Anne walnut bureau bookcase. Moving from the theatre to the law courts our next collection belongs to Sir Jeremy Lever KCMG, QC. Sir Jeremy is a well known QC and Oxford fellow and is one of the leading and most respected EU and Competion lawyers at the Bar. He and his partner are in the process of downsizing and we are delighted to be selling over hundred lots from their Kent home. The collection is wide and varied ranging from Regency furniture to Grand Tour marble busts and Empire lighting.
