With our international reach, gallery spaces in Edinburgh, London and Glasgow, Lyon & Turnbull continues to play a major role in the strengthening of the UK as a market for African and Oceanic Art. Over the past few years, pieces have emerged on these shores that have caught the attention of the top end of the market, generating bids of five and six figures. Most recently, an exceptionally rare Zulu prestige neckrest dating to the mid-19th century was found in a Scottish property, it was auctioned by Lyon & Turnbull and achieved £65,000 (including buyer's premium), a new record for the type.
Lyon & Turnbull offers biannual sales of fine African and Oceanic Art in our curated sale Form Through Time, taking place in the Spring and Autumn of each year.
