A remarkable Rothschild family collection of art, furniture, jewelry, ceramics, and silver, dating to the 19th century, was sold at Christie’s New York for a staggering $62.6 million after being held privately for years. The French Rothschild family recently sold remarkable items, like a 17th-century painting, “A Young Woman Holding a Hare with a Boy at a Window,” for over $7 million, and a 1st-century AD Roman Sardonyx cameo portrait of Emperor Claudius for nearly $116,000 in New York. This sale reflects a shift in their collection management as they aim to share their rich heritage with the world. The first-ever North American display of the French Rothschild family’s artwork at a special auction showcased luxurious furniture, ceramics, silver, tapestries, and jewelry. The sale, though mysterious in its motive, may be linked to an effort to refresh their collection for the next generation. This event offered a unique chance to own a piece of their renowned history, revealing the family’s celebrated wealth and cultural significance.
