Buying at auction
Buying at an auction is a great way to expand your collection or to discover unique pieces for your home. We offer all sorts of objects in every price range.
During our various auctions, we sell approximately 20.000 lots every year. This ranges from furniture, art, design and jewellery to specific collections in every field. The auctions consist of: Art & Antiques, Design, General, Jewellery & Watches, Collectables and Real Estate.
We want to notify you that we are bound to international and European legislation concerning goods incorporating materials from endangered and protected species. Read here how this might concern you.
Do you want to know whether we are auctioning items that might be of interest to you? View our online catalogue on our website. Here you can also compile your personal catalogue after logging in by selecting your favourite lot numbers.
If you desire a more detailed description of the condition of an object, you can request a condition report from one of our specialists. This option is available for objects from our Art & Antiques, Design, General or Jewellery & Watches auction. You can request a condition report by filling in the contact form.
You can find all objects from the catalogue on display during our viewing days. We organise viewing days for almost every auction in our saleroom. You can visit us to inspect the objects up close and we will answer any questions you may have about the items or the auction. Have a look at our calendar to see when the next viewing days are scheduled.
