Bruun Rasmussen marks the 100th anniversary of the sale of the Danish West Indies to the United States at the spring’s international coin auction in Copenhagen, where an outstanding private collection with almost all types of coins from the Danish West Indies is up for auction.
Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers in Copenhagen are pleased to offer a large private Russian art collection of high quality at this summer's international auction in Copenhagen (9 June 2017). The collection belonged to the Norwegian commercial attaché Richard Zeiner-Henriksen, who lived in Russia during the first half of the 1900s.
The first international auction at Bruun Rasmussen in Copenhagen was kicked off in style on Tuesday! A study for P.S. Krøyer’ final masterpiece, the iconic “Midsummer Eve Bonfire on Skagen Beach” (1903), was sold for DKK 4.3 million and a classic Danish Golden Age painting by C.V. Eckersberg from Rome (1819) was sold to the art museum ARoS for DKK 1.5 million.
In a magnificent study for P.S. Krøyer’s final masterpiece, the artist's family and friends can be seen around the iconic Midsummer Eve bonfire on Skagen's beach, where sparks are flying and people’s faces are lit up by the bright summer night. The study is auctioned off at Bruun Rasmussen’s upcoming international auction on 28th February.
The ”Light Maker” Poul Henningsen’s first floor lamp from the late 1920s and a unique dining table by architect Poul Kjærholm from the late 1970s are some of the highlights at the upcoming Nordic design auction at Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers in Copenhagen.
Finn Juhl’s ”Chieftain Chair” exceeded expectations with an impressive hammer price of DKK 860,000 (€ 150,000 including buyer’s premium) as Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers of Fine Art concluded the final auction of the year in Bredgade, Copenhagen.
It is not only artwork and Chinese vases that can surprise on the auction market! Yesterday the auction house Bruun Rasmussen sold decorative crafts in Copenhagen. Here a coffee service of silver, designed by the English designer Archibald Knox, took off during the bidding round and ended up with a hammer price of DKK 325,000 against an estimate of DKK 60 to 80,000.
Tuesday evening the enamel "20 heures, arrivée à Chandigarh" by Swiss-French architect and artist Le Corbusier achieved an impressive hammer price of DKK 1.75 million (€ 234,000 including buyer’s premium), which is a doubling of the previous world record for an enamel by Le Corbusier set in Zurich in July 2016.
Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers of Fine Art has this afternoon broken its own auction record with the sale of a rare Ming vase from the 1400s. The vase was sold for an impressive DKK 15.6 million (€ 2.1 million including buyer’s premium) – the highest hammer price in the history of the auction house as well as the Danish auction record for an item of porcelain.
