Selling at Dorotheum
Appreciating and selling value is our area of expertise – and has been for 316 years.
More than 300 years after its foundation by Emperor Joseph I, Vienna-based Dorotheum is by far the largest auction house in the German-speaking region, the leader in Central Europe and one of the oldest and largest auction houses in the world, too. With representative offices in Hamburg, Munich, Düsseldorf, Milan, Rome, London, Prague and Brussels, where previews of our auction highlights are held on a regular basis, top-notch contacts at international cultural institutions and museums, a global network of collectors and art enthusiasts, we reach a large audience of potential buyers. All this helps to sell your pieces of art!
