New record for Zsolnay ceramics at Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen!

Seven highly attractive works by the Hungarian ceramics company Vilmos Zsolnay from three private collections were offered at the auction on June 11.

These were all hotly contested and were only knocked down for many times their estimated prices after minutes-long battles. According to research on the international auction platform Artnet, a new price record for works by Zsolnay in the last ten years was set for the beautiful large vase with a very artistically designed golden dragon. Enthusiasts in the room, on the phones and online outbid each other until a customer from another European country came out on top at 54,000 euros.

Top results for design icons from the last five decades

The design auction on Wednesday was a continuation of the first auction day with more excellent results and exciting bidding battles for selected design objects.
The ‘Flightfile’ desk by Mark Brazier-Jones from 1990 is extravagant and unique. Two online bidders appreciated this and outbid each other until the participant from France finally won the lot for 10,000 €

Collectors focused on big names from the studio and art jewelry scene

Giampaolo Babetto’s ear studs in yellow gold with red pigment already attracted a number of interested parties in the run-up to the auction. The bidders raised the popular pieces from €2,500 to €5,500.
Exceptional ear jewelry also attracted enthusiasm elsewhere. For example, the earrings in the shape of a nut with stars by Otto Jakob achieved a hammer price of €6,500.
Collectors selectively secured their favorites from the extensive range of works by Hermann Jünger. An early brooch with moonstone from 1969 was the focus of two bidders and achieved double its estimate with a hammer price of €5,000.
