143A - Auction Italian Design

143A - Auction Italian Design

The new auction year 2019 started with the 'Italian Design' sale, which offered a wide selection to collectors and enthusiasts.

The designs by Ettore Sottsass were in the limelight, 16 out of 20 designs were sold to international clients from the USA and Europe. The illuminated mirror object 'Ultrafragola' received a hammer price of EUR 7,800. The vase '262' changed ownership for EUR 3,400.

Elegant furniture, such as Aldo Tura's baroque green leather armoire and Space Age lamps, such as Stilnovo's 'Orbital' ceiling light (hammer price: EUR 3,400) and Oscar Torlasco's 'Sputnik' ceiling light (hammer price: EUR 2,800) were in focus of the auction and attracted many online bidders and interested parties on the floor

Unsold objects will be available in our post auction sale until Friday, 22 March.

143B - Auction International Design

143B - Auction International Design

Bauhaus enjoys great popularity.

Bidders were also actively involved on the second day of the auction. Well-known classics, such as Arne Jacobsen's 'Egg chair' (hammer price: EUR 6,200) or Meret Oppenheim's side table 'Traccia' (hammer price: EUR 3,000) were in great demand and quickly changed hands.

The positive effects of this year's Bauhaus anniversary were clearly noticeable. The small selection of tubular steel furniture, which should give a foretaste of our upcoming auction '100 years Bauhaus' in June, was received with great enthusiasm. Particularly in demand were the colorfully arranged nesting tables by Marcel Breuer. One set could be sold for EUR 4,200, another for EUR 5,000.

Unsold objects will be available in our post auction sale until Friday, 22 March.

143C - Auction Murano Glass

143C - Auction Murano Glass

With a sales rate of around 70%, the first Murano glass auction of the year comes to a successful conclusion.

The top lot of the auction, the rare vase 'A Macchie' by Fulvio Bianconi secured a collector for EUR 60,000. Extremely popular were the flowers of Gianni Zennaro, who rarely find their way to the market. Three copies could be offered in this auction and led to exciting bidding wars (hammer prices: EUR 7,500 / EUR 7,500 / EUR 6,000).

Very good results were achieved by the designs of Ercole Barovier, almost all of them could be sold and experienced some gratifying increases, such as the vase 'Alterno blu', which climbed from EUR 3,000 to 7,000. Particularly noteworthy is the large vase 'Parabolico' which doubled its estimate with a hammer price of EUR 8,800.

Unsold objects will be available in our post auction sale until Friday, 22 March.
