Special Auction Collection M. Körber

ANTIQUE TOYS MEET ANTIQUE ADVERTISING

(Lifetime) hunting and collecting deserves special attention. With great dedication, we organize special auctions to pave the way for outstanding collections to return to the scene.

Thus, Michael Körber’s collection, which has been passionately assembled over the last four decades, will also be appropriately honored with this auction.

Often such a wind-up also serves a new orientation without having to give up the collector’s heart. After all, every end holds a new beginning.

One thing is for sure – with about 650 precious pieces of antique toys and a collection of more than 200 enamel signs, two eventful auction days are waiting for you.

JERSEYS FOR CHARITY

HORST-DIETER HÖTTGES

CHARITY-AUCTION | MEMORABILIA

A world class collection for a good cause!

To coincide with the 2022 World Cup, we were given the special honor of auctioning off the private collection of football memorabilia of the 1974 World Champion Horst-Dieter Höttges in a spectacular auction.

In the football-historical atmosphere of the German Football Museum in Dortmund, this memorabilia auction steeped in history took place on December 11, 2022, with the auction revenue benefiting charitable organizations.

This auction, which goes beyond our actual collecting métier, was an absolute affair of the heart and we are pleased that this auction has received its well-deserved attention!

 

II. POSTER AUCTION

PAPER IS NOT ONLY FOR WRITING… PT.2

In a jolly atmosphere, great prices were once again realized in the Art Rooms of the Chapel in Worms on December 17, 2022 at the II. Poster Auction, entirely under the motto “Paper is not only for writing”.

For all of us, this is a further indication that vintage posters with their powerful motifs enjoy great popularity and are far from being wastepaper!

Since we are very passionate about poster advertising, we have made it our business to hold an annual poster auction. The III. Poster Auction will take place on September 15, 2023 – we are already welcoming consignments.

 

30th WORMSER REKLAME-AUKTION

VERNISSAGE x AUCTION

In order to conclude an exciting year in a dignified manner, the 30th Wormser Reklame-Auktion on November 11 & 12, 2022, once again offered everything that antique advertising has to give!

While the vernissage one week before the auction on November 05, 2022, presented the overture, the auction days were followed by a firework of historical advertising objects.

It was a pleasure for us that you attended both the vernissage and the auction days in such large numbers! We look forward to an equally eventful auction year with you in 2023!

SOME OF OUR PAST AUCTIONS

VI. Special auction - A Late-Summer-Event

After one year, the time has finally come and we were able to return to live auctions on-location – a truly fitting re-entry with Jürgen Zeller’s collection.

Our concept of holding a 2-day auction with a free-of-charge parking lot market, including a food truck and wine bar afterwards received overwhelmingly positive receptions – there was browsing and haggling continuing late into Saturday night – a real celebration cause for Wormser Reklame.

 

 

The 26. Wormser Reklame-Auction

 

An auction for everybody, regardless if you’re highlight-collector or new to the scene – with over 950 lots it was the biggest auction held over the past 10 years.
Not only that – at the same time this auction was the most lucrative one ever held on german grounds.

 

 

V. Sonderauktion - Posters / Plakate / Affiche

A Post-Summary
As we received this private collection a little over 3 months ago, we knew that something special would come of it. After we bested the challenges 2020 had in store for us, we have luckily mustered up the courage to add this collection to our first special auction. At the start of the auction week we would’ve never thought it possible to be able to get back to a 100% sales quota – even with every lot roughly going for the estimated values.
Prior to the auction, we have bested a rough journey. we had to create capacities. Nt only time-wise, but also finding space – all the while having to prepare our other 26th scheduled auction and not falling behind on that. Day and night, we packed, viewed, restored, photographed, and so on. Sometimes these long work hours even came to visit us in our dreams.
All in all we want to say we did everything right. At long last, it was up to you guys to be the judge of that. Because of this we tip our hats to you – we are proud to be part of such a lively scene on the come-up.

 

 

The 25. Wormser Reklame-Auktion

100% SALES QUOTA, EVEN IN 2020!!!

After a real auction-Marathon during our anniversary-auction, we can only be thankful for the scene, it was truly remarkable!
Every single one of our auctions held this year will forever one-of-a-kind – all of them offered a completely unique and truly special auction-experience.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your outstanding participation! It was a real pleasure, holding this auction for you all.

 

 

A Late-Summer-Event: The IV. Sonderauktion

EPILOGUE:

Fellow Collectors,

Unfortunately, our LATE-SUMMER-EVENT is already history – still, we won’T be forgetting it for a long time.

During a beautiful late summer day, over 200 hall-bidders came and sat in our Open-Air hall and created, in combination with our countless online- and phone-bidders, a magically competitive atmosphere. Not only were the surcharge-prices of some lots exceptional but also the overall mood was spectacular.

The concept was definitely met with a positive reception and will be reproduced next year for sure with alterations.
TIL NEXT TIME!
