Don’t miss the fascinating story of ‘Big Alex’ – a sculpture which was abandoned when Marbury Hall was demolished in 1968. The head of the statue has come onto the market in a Christie’s New York Auction ‘Faces of the Past’. The sculpture, which had a guide price of $800,000 to $1,200,000, sold for $591,000!
