This is followed by Modern Made: Modern British & Post-War Art, Design & Studio Ceramics on 30 Apr, and African & Oceanic Art & Antiquities on 5 May, featuring over 300 artefacts, some of them hundreds of millions of years old and many of them resembling abstract sculptural works.

Whisky & Wine on 13th May and Fine Asian Works of Art on 14th May are followed by Five Centuries: Furniture, Paintings & Works of Art on 19th May, Jewellery, Watches & Silver on 2nd June, and finally Scottish Paintings & Sculpture ft.
