John Mackie, our Director of the Decorative Arts & Design Department, visited designer & collector Paul Reeves at his home in the Cotswolds to learn more about his collecting life ahead of our 14 February Edinburgh auction.
Following the success of the ‘Textiles as Art’ auction in February 2017, Paul Reeves and Lyon & Turnbull are pleased to collaborate again in 2019 on ‘An Eye for Design’.
The auction will represent a century of European design from the Gothic Revival and Aesthetic movements of the 19th century through the Arts & Crafts period and onto mid-20th century Modernism.
This auction of furniture, works of art, lighting and textiles features the work of Christopher Dresser, William Morris, E.W. Godwin, C.R. Ashbee, W.A.S. Benson, Baillie Scott, Augustus Pugin, Barron & Larcher, Fortuny, Sir Robert Lorimer and C.F.A. Voysey.
