10 years, 35 auctions, 30,000 objects
After 10 years of experience in the art and antique trade David Christian Wettmann 2008 opened the auction house on the Ruhr. Due to the already numerous business contacts, the first auction was a complete success and thus laid the foundation for many other auctions. The auction house on the Ruhr quickly became a fixture in national and international auctioning. In our business premises in the Mülheim old town, in direct situation to the Ruhr and the water station, 3 to 5 auctions take place annually. The main focus here is on the sale of paintings, art & jewelery. With numerous top surcharges in recent years and the sale of art collections of well-known entrepreneurial families of the Ruhr area, the auction house on the Ruhr received a lot of international attention. In 2017, with the opening of our representative office in Essen and the planned expansion into other Ruhrgebiet cities, we will further consolidate our position as a local authority for art, antiques and jewelery. The representative office in Essen is the direct successor to the auction house L & B Kunstauktionen, which has been active in Essen for over 30 years.
