Our auctions for silver regularly include high quality collectibles from the 16th to the 20th centuries. The works offered come not only from Swiss makers but from also the world’s most historically important centres of silver production, including London, Augsburg, Paris, Moscow, St Petersburg, Turin and Nuremberg. In every auction we also offer elegant functional silver that will add a touch of class to every table setting. In our Koller ibid online only auctions you will also find many great finds at affordable prices.

Corinne Koller, Head of Department for Silver, is available to estimate single items or entire collections for our upcoming auctions.

Our Decorative Arts auctions are held in March and September. Consignments are accepted until mid-January for our March auctions, and late July for our September sales.
