Art Deco & Art Nouveau
Important glass creations by makers such as Gallé, Daum and Tiffany; furniture by Suë et Mare and Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann; chryselephantine sculptures by Demeter H. Chiparus: Koller’s auctions of Art Nouveau & Art Deco offer all of this and more. Works in glass, bronze, ivory, wood and metal, by creators from two of the most exciting periods in the history of the decorative arts are presented alongside our auctions of Design and Modern Art each June and December.
