Koller’s history has been closely linked to decorative arts since 1958. Furniture, silver, porcelain and sculpture are among our oldest core competencies, and many highly significant objects have been sold at Koller Auctions over the decades. A bureau plat by André-Charles Boulle, cabinetmaker to the French king – auctioned for 3 million Swiss francs – is today regarded as the standard by which other objects by this highly important ébéniste are measured.
The density and quality of the antique furnishings, decorative arts and collectors’ items on offer twice annually at Koller is practically unique in Europe. Represented are works by ébénistes such as Charles Cressent, Mathäus Funk, Abraham Roentgen, André-Charles Boulle, Bernard van Risen Burgh, Léonard Boudin, Johann Friedrich Spindler, Charles Topino and Adam Weisweiler. Koller has also built a very strong reputation as one of the leading European auction houses for antique clocks, with works by famous clockmakers such as Berthoud, Deverberie, Breguet, Le Roy, Lepine and Jaquet-Droz.
Stephan Koller, our specialist and head of the Fine Furniture department, will be pleased to value your objects in view of a possible sale at auction.
Our Decorative Arts auctions take place in March and September. We accept consignments until mid-January for the March auctions and until late July for the September auctions.
If you wish to consign to one of our auctions, we will value your artworks free of charge. Please send us photos if possible, or call us. We will arrange an appointment to view your property at your home or in one of our offices in Zurich, Geneva, Genoa, Munich or Düsseldorf. You will then receive our auction estimates so that you can make your decision.How to sell at auction
