Das Auktionshaus XXX wird in seinem Londer Stammhaus am 25. Oktober die Designbestaende der Galerie in einem separaten "One Owner-Sale" mit eigenem Katalog versteigern.
Da sich das Angebot an hockkaraetigen Objekten im Bereich des klassischen Designs selbst trotz angezogener Preise infolge stark vermehrter Nachfrage sehr verengt hat, sieht das Haus XXX dieser Auktion mit grossem Interesse entgegen.
Es duerfte sich hierbei um die bedeutendste Auktion handeln, die jemals der Deisgn-Entwicklung des 20. Jahrhunderts gewidmet worden ist. Viele der zum Aufruf gelangten Objekte sind noch nie im Handel angeboten worden, sie waren fuer spaetere Ausstellungsvorhaben vorgesehen. Ein Teil der Galeriebestaende wurde direkt von den Kuenstlern bzw. deren Nachlaessen erworben.
|Translation - English|
XXX's London auction house will be handling the sale of the gallery's design inventory in a separate "One-Owner-Sale" (with its own catalogue) on October 25th.
The increasing demand from private and institutional collectors for high quality design objects and the small supply of fresh material to the market has stimulated the prices. As a result XXX expect a very interesting auction.
This will be perhaps one of the most significant auctions in the area of 20th Century Design. Many design objects to be auctioned have never before been put on the market, as they were intended for display in future exhibitions. Part of the gallery inventory was acquired directly from the artists or their estates.
