Out of the Ordinary commemorates 250 years of Christie’s and, as the name suggests, is a celebration of the unusual, the unique, the extraordinary and the exceptional. This year’s sale of rare collectibles comprises over 90 lots selected for the intriguing stories they tell, and includes a selection of memorabilia from the collection of David Gainsborough Roberts. The objects and works of art featured in the sale — many of which belonged to some of history’s most famous people — will be on view to the public in a five-week summer exhibition, from 6 August to 14 September.
