    Winston Churchill at sea in a luxury yacht

    A Lost Winston Churchill Owned by the Onassis Family Hits the Block – A verdant landscape, The Moat, Breccles (1921), painted by the former British Prime Minister will be offered at Phillips’s 20th century and contemporary art evening sale on June 23. The picture was long thought to be lost—but in fact, it was simply hanging in the saloon of the Christina, the yacht owned by shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. Around 50 years after Churchill gifted the painting to his friend, it will be sold by the Onassis family with an estimate of $1.5 million to $2 million.

    Recently I have had a huge amount of correspondence from people looking to sell pieces of art they may have had hanging on a wall or lying in a garage for years. The recent opening up of shops and auction houses (and the success of online auctions) has
    led to a real boom in sellers seeking to raise much needed cash as we exit the pandemic.

    But what are all these things worth? How are you supposed to know a good deal from a bad deal?

    I have always loved small antiques shops. Many amazing finds over the years have been in these little blink and you’ll miss it, tucked-out-of-the-way gems. Even if you don’t
    find something earth-shattering, very often you can find fascinating and inspiring trinkets and treasures that will never fail to delight. You can also usually guarantee that you’ll find knowledgeable advice and sometimes even a fascinat- ing yarn or two from the custodians of these retail delights who, more often that not, are genuinely pleased for you to walk in and take an interest in their wares, and who can always play the game when it comes to the fun of haggling over price.

    Hopefully as you read this we will be starting to see the country opening up again. Lockdown, whilst obviously a huge inconvenience to all our lives, did have one positive
    side-effect though - during 2020 burglaries dropped by a huge 20%. By remaining in our homes we all became a highly effective home security system. Now that lockdown is ending, how do we continue to keep our antiques and art safe?
