Emma Barnett’s favourite lot is Lot 117 – three cased sets of Asprey silver menu holders. Catering to a party of eighteen people, they exemplify the high society living associated with London’s Knightsbridge. Whilst Amelia Hone prefers the mahogany drinks trolley, complete with a tantalus and glasses.
