The English Collection of 20th Century Design
Tim and Natasha English are dedicated collectors whose passion for 20th century design began in the 1970s. Over the years they built an esoteric and high quality collection based around carefully selected and researched signature examples of furniture and lighting by designers such as Arne Vodder, Verner Panton, Ron Arad, Arne Norell and Finn Juhl. The sale results were testimony to the growing sophistication of New Zealand collectors. The catalogue also included the most comprehensive collection of Ernest Shufflebotham for Crown Lynn handpotted ceramics A+O has ever offered.
