Sotheby’s was founded in 1744 as a book auctioneer and has since expanded to sell many of the world’s most valuable fine and decorative arts, wine, jewellery and other precious objects.
Sotheby’s was the first international auction house to expand from London to New York, and the first to conduct sales in Hong Kong. Today, Sotheby’s maintains 90 offices in 40 countries, with principal salesrooms in New York, London, Hong Kong and Paris.
