Owned by Sting since 2002, the piano was described as having “occupied pride of place” in the artist’s music room and was used by him when he worked on his Songs from the Labyrinth, If on a Winter’s Night and The Last Ship albums. It had been made in Hamburg in 1909 and was restored and ebonised in 2002.

 

Amongst other lots on offer in the sale were artworks by Matisse and Picasso. Sting and his wife asked Christie’s to conduct the auction in preparation for their move from Queen Anne’s Gate – which they bought for £5.7 million (the equivalent of £8.1 million $11.3 million or €10.3 million today) in 2003 and sold for £19 million ($26.4 million, €24.1 million) in 2015 – to a new residence in the forthcoming Battersea Power Station redevelopment.

    1. I love the idea Rod thinks that Sting’s wife is ‘very much to his taste’.
      I think I will send this image of Rod and his posterior like face to Mrs Sting so she can be the judge.
      She will have a heart seizure at the idea that this fat and sad loser who could ‘fancy’ her.
      One thing about Rod….he is pretty unique in having a face that closely resembles a very large and flaccid backside. Judge for yourselves…https://www.facebook.com/rocket100
