Art auction house Schlosser
In the heart of Bamberg's old town
With the 75th auction in autumn 2017, the art auction house Schlosser celebrated its 20th anniversary.
Based in Nuremberg from the time it was founded in 1997 until the 30th auction, the auction house has been established in June 2005 in the city palace of the Bibra family in the heart of the UNESCO-protected old town of Bamberg and has since enriched the unique and varied art and antiques trade in the Upper Franconian cathedral city .
The Bibra-Palais was built around 1716, most likely according to plans by the important baroque architect Johann Dientzenhofer, and all rooms were given opulent stucco decoration by Johann Jakob Vogel, the famous Bamberg court plasterer. Since the construction of the house was intended to "decorate the city", the builder Karl Freiherr von Bibra was granted a loan from the prince-bishop's court chamber for the construction project on March 28, 1716.
The Kunstauktionshaus Schlosser is one of the most beautiful auction houses in Germany and offers the ideal ambience for the presentation and auction of high-quality works of art to an international clientele. In addition to the hall auctions that take place three to four times a year, the auction house was also able to strengthen its presence on the Internet through online auctions and the possibility of live bidding, thus further expanding its position on the art market of the future.
In addition, we carry out special auctions for individual collection areas and, if desired, also auction them directly on the client's premises under appropriate circumstances.
