Unique auction from The Savoy

 

In preparation for one of the largest hotel restorations in the history of London, The Savoy, a Fairmont Hotel, will hold a unique auction that will allow members of the public the opportunity to purchase items from its past.   The auction will be overseen by Bonhams and includes  a list of over 3000 lots including lighting, mirrors, silver and artwork.   A donation from the proceeds of the auction will go to benefit Farms for City Children (FFCC).    A £100 million restoration program  will begin at the hotel today, and the auction will take place from 18th-20th December 2007.
