Dreweatts is pleased to announce that entries are now open for The Garden Sale - a dedicated auction of garden statuary and ornament, to be held on 10 September 2020.
The auction will follow previous successful sales of outdoor statuary, including the auction of works from the Sculpture Park, Surrey in 2019 and sales of selected contents from the collection of Piet Jonker, the Netherlands, in 2017 and 2015. The sale will celebrate the variety and quality of garden design and is set to include a broad range of outdoor items, from traditional weathered figures and urns in stone and metal, to innovative work by contemporary sculptors.
