Author Jewellery

Important jewellery of the 20th Century

Post auction report

Selected pieces of jewellery from this year's December auction have passed into the possession of important collections and museums, and many things will surely find their way under the Christmas tree.

The early works of Karl-Heinz Reister in gold, which enchant the observer with their complex surface structures, were particularly popular in the field of German author's jewellery. The title lot, a bracelet from 1968, attracted many interested parties and ultimately went to a new owner for 10,000 EUR.

There was also great interest in the works of Emmy van Leersum and Herman Hermsen from the Teunen Collection; objects from all materials and price ranges were in demand. Van Leersum's paper bracelet (proceeds 100 - 130 EUR) could be sold as well as the extremely rare gold arm jewellery (proceeds 13,200 EUR).

The earrings 'Grata' by the Italian sculptor Fausto Melotti were the subject of a bidding competition in a very short time. The filigree pieces of jewellery made of white gold generated proceeds of EUR 9,900, far more than twice the original estimate.

Objects that have not been sold can be purchased in post-sale until 10 January 2020. For hhe list of unsold lots please click here.
