Weekly Auctions of Exceptional Items
Koller AuctionS Koller Auctions' officially registered name, "Galerie Koller" hints at this auctionshouse's first beginnings: a gallery. In 1958, attorney Pierre Koller combined his passions for prints depicting horses, clocks and furniture and established a gallery in Zurich's Dafourstrasse. His sister Antoinette Koller, an expert for ceramics, silver and Asian art, joined the business in 1959, broading its scope according to her expertise. A first successful aution was held alreaday one year later. In 1961, the emerging auction house relocated its seat to Rämistrasse, where it stayed for more than three decades - until it proved too small for the expanding business, which had in the meantiome focused on precious antique furniture and luxurious arts and crafts from rococo to Napoleon III. Hence, Koller Auctions moved to their current premises in Zurich's Hardturmstrasse 102 in 1991. There, two buildings offer spacious 4000qm to be used as showroom, offices and for storage purposes, and allows easy acces to the near highway and Zurich Airport. In 1990, company founder Pierre Koller's oldest son Cyril Koller joined Koller Auctions, taking over as Managing Director in 1998. The art historian focuses on 19th century paintings, Modern Art and Swiss Art and has since upgraded the paintings to one of the most important business segments of Koller Auctions. His wife Corinne Koller heads up the silver department.
