Tarisio auction


Recommended Posts

Prefacing my reply with the disclaimer that I know nothing... 30% unsold is not that unusual in general but is certainly higher than usual for Tarisio.  I didn't get the opportunity to inspect or to hear any of the lots, but I am surprised that the Otto Erdesz didn't find a home but that opening bid might have been a bit off putting? Looking through the unsold lots I thought the estimates were a bit punchy for some of the lots, but it's always a balancing act setting estimates to attract bidders while managing sellers expectations. Some of the stuff was not that exciting this time round.

There were 2 large auctions in NY and 1 in Philadelphia within a very short period of time. The Freemans auction in Philadelphia had many unsold instruments and also many that did not reach the low estimate.

I think May was a buyers' market in the U.S. northeast.

IMHO lot 182 is most lightly not a Geissenhof, which is why I didn't bid on it, for what it's worth

How about the Meinradas Frank on Kestenbaum, seems like it would be up your alley.
