Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen GmbH

Since its establishment in 1998, Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen has become one of the leading international auction houses for Applied Arts of the 20th Century. Averaging six auctions annually, the Munich,Germany based company presents high-quality furniture, glass, ceramics, silver and jewelry, ranging from the 1880's to present time, to an international clientele. Its exceptional expertise in Art Nouveau and Art Deco, Design, Murano glass and African tribal art, has gained Quittenbaum a reputation as a forum for dedicated collectors and specialists. The history of the company dates back to the year 1956 when Ellen Piper, mother-to-be of present managing director Askan Quittenbaum, opened an African Art gallery in Düsseldorf. Later, in 1968 she set up shop in Hamburg, specializing in jewelry and Art Nouveau as well as antiques. When Askan Quittenbaum joined forces with her in 1992 they founded the Galerie Quittenbaum in Hamburg-Blankenese and subsequently focused more and more on Art Deco, Design of the 20th century and Murano glass. In 1998 the operation was finally moved to Munich, the hub of the German art business. On May 11th of that year, the very first auction under the moniker Quittenbaum Kunstauktionen took place. Each year, during four major events, usually in the spring and in autumn, Quittenbaum auctions roughly 4,000 objects. Additionally special presentations focusing entirely on African tribal art as well as Murano glass are held annually. In 1999 Quittenbaum undertook their first highlight-auction, featuring 400 Bauhaus items, which was to become the cornerstone of increased specialization in the realm of Modern Design, thus further shaping the companies' profile. Each year, experts and curators of Museums such as for instance, Chris Dercon (Haus der Kunst München), Volker Fischer (Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt/Main) and Rüdiger Joppien (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg), lecture at and accompany the previews for these special auctions that are held in a festive atmosphere. Quittenbaum's richly illustrated auction catalogues serve as a comprehensive reference, providing a plethora of valuable information for exploring 20th century art.
