This auction was created by a number of prominent collections, supplemented by individual entries from private collectors, so that the catalog offers a wonderful selection for every collector.

The catalog starts with an extensive collection of silver objects, ranging from a pair of silver saucepans by Isacq Samuel Busard from 1735 (value lot 10 € 8,000 – 12,000) to a pair of early 20th century silver candlesticks by Georg Jensen (value lot 5 € 5,000 – 8,000).

The large number of jewels included in this auction is striking, many of which are set with diamonds, such as the rare platinum and yellow diamond ring by Tiffany & Co (value lot 58 € 10,000 – 15,000). A collection of 31 sapphires and spinels has been included for the collector of loose gemstones.
Gentlemen can also indulge in the special watches, of which the 18 carat gold Patek Philippe Gondolo wristwatch immediately catches the eye (value lot 127 € 10,000 – 20,000). In addition to various Patek Philippe watches, brands such as Rolex, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Bucherer, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Chopard are also represented.

The catalog leads you further through a collection of clocks, from the 18th to 20th century, to an arsenal of international furniture. The early 18th century Louis XIV Mazarin desk, inlaid with walnut, olive and fruit wood (valuation lot 201 € 10,000 – 15,000), is an absolute museum piece. In addition, you will find many furniture of later date with gilt fittings, lacquer work, parquetry and marquetry, as well as in Boulle style.

Among the porcelain you will find beautiful, extensive tableware from European manufacture to the internationally highly sought-after Chinese porcelain. In addition to the large numbers of blue-and-white porcelain, the 'famille rose' and 'famille verte' are also well represented, where the refined 'fishermen' plate will certainly catch your eye (value lot 321 € 4,500 – 5,500).

For the lover of Asian collectibles is an extensive section of netsuke, snuff bottles, jade, furniture, lacquer and paintings. The auction is concluded with ethnography, the last lot being a rare wooden Adu Zatua ancestor figure from South Nias (lot valuation 455 € 4,000 – 6,000).
