Ruprecht, among others, will be hoping that this financial coup will serve to draw attention away from the scandalous accusations of art-market manipulation that were levelled at Sotheby's and Christies in the 1990s, causing their profits to plummet.

The judge acknowledged that Christies was not "obliged to give the full and detailed advice that might have been expected of an independent art expert" but that the "circumstances required that Ms Thomson be told the risk she ran in paying a large sum for the urns." Thomson was awarded damages, interest and costs.
