On Wednesday, bronze figures and furniture dominated the event. Roland Paris' rare figurine 'Satanella' features a young, masked dancer overshadowed by an oversized Mephisto figure. It fascinated a Swiss customer so much that he immediately approved EUR 15,500 for the sculpture, which had been called up for EUR 2,000 (Lot 303). Works by Austrian Bruno Zach are in constant demand. His large female figure with a riding crop went to the same collection for the nice sum of EUR 22,000 (lot 313). The interest in pieces of furniture from France was particularly pleasing. More than half of Emile Gallé's furniture was sold. The extremely rare 'Libellules' coffee table from 1900 particularly stood out. The elaborately crafted and inlaid table with dragonflies as legs came from a German private collection and is now being sold to another collection for EUR 28,000 (lot 325). The 'Sagittaires' table, designed by Louis Majorelle for the Salon des Industries du Mobiliar in Paris in 1905, had never been seen on the market. A German collector secured the extraordinary piece for EUR 70,000 for themselves (lot 336). The two claddings for central heating systems by Edgar Brandt, which were not yet available as standard in the 1920s, also board from EUR 8,000 to EUR 23,000 (Lot 321).

Secure one of the extraordinary pieces now! The after sale for the auctions ends on June 11, 2022.
