Sotheby’s – Distinctive Styles

March 9th, 2012 by


This spring, Sotheby’s is delighted to offer a joint single-owner sale of fine English and European decorative arts from the estate of Roger Rechler and the Collection of Dorothy and Wendell Cherry.  Each of these collectors had a distinctive style favoring English, French and Continental furniture and decorative arts which transformed two rather different interiors, namely a fine formal townhouse in New York City’s Upper East Side and a beautiful turn-of-the-century Southern Colonial villa situated in idyllic Kentucky horse country.  Whilst building such distinctive collections, both collectors shared a passion for breeding and showing dogs, many of which lovingly shared their lives and their homes.
