NEW AUCTION & BOURSE DATE: 28 + 29 + 30 October
Our next auction will take place in the centre of Brussels during the last weekend of October. Our location is the Hilton Brussels Grand Place Hotel, right across the main Brussels train station (Gare Centrale) and 400M from the famous Brussels Grand Place, thus in the touristic heart of Europe’s capital.
We will conduct our usual international auction on Saturday and organise Europe’s biggest scripophily bourse on Sunday. Moreover, this time we will also have a special extra feature: there will be an extra auction on Friday evening which we call the “collections sale”. This will be a short but powerful auction in which we will be offering more than 60 complete collections of various themes and countries together with a handful investor/dealer lots. These collections originate from a number of our longtime collector clients and their heirs who, after several decades of collecting, have decided to part with their collections or have switched their interests into other scripophily fields.
The auction catalogues will be online on this site from early October onwards. Subscribe to our newsletter on this site if you wish to be kept informed.
Finally, dealers interested to participate at the Sunday bourse, can contact us now for the booking of their tables.
Have a wonderful summer!
Our March 19 auction proved again a great success. Collectors from all continents participated either through their presence in our auction room, live over the internet or through the use of our absentee bdding facilities. Overall, 58,55% of all items offered found a new owner, resulting of a turnover of 246.326 EUR (incl. sales commission). Unsold items can be purchased in our AFTER SALE until April 24 on a first come, first served basis. See result list (top of menu on the left).
Top item in the auction was a share of the French Compagnie des Indes from 1787 whith fetched 12.000 EUR. Most other top items in the auction were also strongly in demand, for instance the founder share of the Suez Canal (5500 EUR) and the Dampfschiffahrts-Gesellschaft die Adler des Ober-Rheins from Switzerland (4200 EUR, up from 2000 EUR).
