Collectibles & Rarities

This auction is characterized by diversity. An impressive collection of historical ?dandy? walking sticks, a selection of excellent first editions of famous books, combined with selected antiques and collectors' items create a wide and interesting offer. The cover picture, taken from the Latin edition of the ?Stultifera navis? ? ?Ship of Fools? - by Sebastian Brant from 1497, is guaranteed to make the hearts of all bibliophiles leap. Just as impressive are a large ?Tambour? soldier figure by Auguste Poitevin and a large Nativity Scene with 31 figures. Also worth mentioning is a giant Parisian Boulle-marquetry clock with wall console. High-quality porcelain by Meissen and KPM as well as fine silverware harmoniously round off the varied selection. This auction is a wonderful opportunity for collectors as well as for lovers of antiques and curiosities, yet also offers a great occasion to immerse oneself in this world.
