Upcoming Musical Instrument Auctions WORLDWIDE (January-December 2023)- List on first page


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Here is a list of upcoming musical instrument auctions WORLDWIDE 2023 for anyone that is interested: (I think this is most of them but please let me know if there are others)

In general I will only list auction houses that either regularly sell musical instruments or are selling over 10 instruments that are in some way interesting.

I will try and be inclusive of all types of musical instruments but it is likely that these listing are more strings focused.


For Auctions with small numbers of instruments for sale at general auction you are best to look online at the Sale Room / Live Auctioneers / Invaluable / Cata Wiki / Good Will etc.







I now have a dodgy YouTube Channel where I just browse the catalogs and talk rubbish, if you want to watch the videos check HERE.


(LAST UPDATED 3rd February 2023)

Please note that this list is continually being updated to be as accurate as possible, but auction dates often shift on a regular basis without warning.

In date order:           January ---> December

Historia auction up - the instruments are listed under the collectibles section. Most of the things are listed together, but there are also a few things randomly across the collectibles section,

How many auctions does one country need? Seems like everyone in UK has a violin for sale.

The UK and France do have a lot of auctions that sell musical instruments, but these are not necessarily specialist auctions. However, it is not uncommon for general auctions to have quite a large number of violins or other instruments for sale.

The UK is Indeed pretty full of musical instruments in general.

A very interesting auction coming up in Germany on the 18th March.

Not so much from a violin point of view, but there are some significant other musical instruments up for sale.
