'CSK' to shut (ctd.)

When Christie's made their surprise announcement they were going to close the South Kensington salerooms, there was talk of 'staff consultations'. It wasn't being presented then as a fait accompli. Now, however, the ATG is reporting that the rooms will close completely by the end of July, with the final sale taking place in mid-July. One wonders what will happen to all the sales and consignments that must have been in the pipeline for future auctions. This must all come as quite a shock to the staff there.

Who will fill this tantalising gap in the market?
