For five decades Annabel’s has been the playground of the rich and famous, attracting Hollywood legends, rock stars, fashion icons and even royalty. The items of its interior will go on sale on 20 November.
Highlights among the 250-plus lots include an Annabel’s table for eight (estimate: £1,000-1,500), comprising eight dining chairs with the quintessential red and green upholstery, a circular restaurant table and eight elegant place settings, including wine glasses, plates, cutlery, tablecloth, napkins, salt and pepper pots and a toast rack; iconic designs by two of France’s master poster artists, Paul Colin and A.M. Cassandre; one of Glyn Philpot’s final portraits of Henry Thomas (estimate: £80,000-120,000); and a striking Portrait of a Lady by Augustus John (estimate: £20,000-30,000)
At RA+C we were especially drawn to the costume designs by Pavel Tchelitchew produced in 1920 and estimated at £10,000 – 15,000.
