This comes only weeks after the launch of an Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary art department at the auction house’s new West End premises.

The new chess and games specialist Luke Honey is aiming to hold two sales a year at Bloomsbury’s new West End premises with the first scheduled for September 15. The auctions will include collectable chess sets, chess ephemera, rare chess books, antique games, Mah Jong and Backgammon sets, and Jaques related material.
