Sotheby’s in London is to offer the Collection of Lord Ballyedmond, whose extraordinary London home formed the backdrop to life at the highest level of British society.

Around 700 objects, spanning over 400 years, will be offered at Sotheby’s London on 23 and 24 May, with the majority drawn from a magnificent townhouse on London’s Belgrave Square, described as the “Downton Abbey of our times.”
