A look at some of the items from Sir David and Lady Lucy Tang's eccentric collection of artworks, furniture and more that will go under the hammer at Christie's London

The world of the late Sir David Tang was an extraordinary one filled with all manner of fabulous things—from artworks and quirky artefacts to beautiful and bizarre collectables—which filled his many homes, clubs and restaurants.

Though widely varied and eclectic in taste, his collection possesses a uniformity that people have come to love and recognise as distinctly David Tang.
