Collection: Christmas at Sotheran's 2023

Season's greetings to one and all, and we wish you a merry festive period and a wonderful new year. We are proud to present this year's catalogue of gift suggestions for every taste and interest, including a selection of stocking fillers at the back. Everything is guaranteed to go down well with a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine.

2024 will be a time of exciting change for us at Sotheran's. Due to the redevelopment of our building we will be moving on and celebrating our last very happy Christmas at Sackville Street since our first here in 1936. The Christmas holiday is always a period of reminiscence and nostalgia, and we look back on our time in this shop with enormous fondness. With each new year comes a new start, though, and we look forward to future celebrations in a shiny new location. Wherever we have been over the last 262 years, we have always welcomed our friends and shared our collection of beautiful books and prints - and that will never change.

Please stay in touch for details of our future plans, and we look forward to taking you with us on the next stage of our journey.
