Olympia Auctions is planning to raise money for cultural institutions suffering due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A percentage of the commission from the three upcoming auctions will be donated by the firm to a number of charities. The sales that are part of the charity campaign are in April, May and June.
Beneficiaries will be Westminster Abbey, The Wallace Collection (to support ongoing research into the collection of arms and armour from India, Iran and the Ottoman Empire) and The Grange Festival in Hampshire.
The sales include pictures, works of art, ceramics, silver, jewellery, arms, armour and militaria.
