Born in 1957 and educated in England, Humphrey Butler joined Christie's in 1976 and during a twenty-two year career he held senior positions in Geneva, London, New York and Paris accumulating unrivalled experience in all aspects of the auction business, though always associated with the jewellery department.
Having left the firm in 1998, he enjoyed a brief stint with Sotheby’s before breaking away to set up his own business in 2000 in association with Dickinson, the Jermyn Street gallery, providing discreet advice to private clients on all aspects of the jewellery industry. The firm became fully independent in September 2008 and is now established as one of the UK’s leading dealerships in vintage pieces and individual gemstones.
In addition Humphrey is now recognised as a leading international auctioneer, selling for a number of high profile charities worldwide, covering America, Hong Kong and the Cannes Film Festival. Both of the two highest grossing charity wine sales in the USA, the Naples Winter Wine Festival and Auction Napa Valley, fall under Humphrey's remit.
