GENEVA – Over 500 items—including more than one hundred Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Tod’s, and Hermès bags—are for sale at one of the most affordable auction houses in Geneva, the Hôtel de Ventes Piguet.
The sale includes second-hand leather goods, watches, furniture, art and decorative arts, and a selection of fine wines and whiskeys.
But, what makes this sale affordable? The starting price and quality — especially when compared to what is in offer in consignment stores in the area. The price of many items at the Hôtel de Ventes start at under CHF300, while other items have been competitively priced.
Selected furniture, fine handbags, and jewelry will be sold at a concurrent silent auction. Simply place a binding bid before the sale begins… and wait.
If your bid meets the minimum reserve and there are no other offers, the item is yours.
Get a glimpse of diamonds, rubies, emeralds, watches and more during the preview set until 12 March at 19:00.
There are lovely (and crazy) items on display.
I truly enjoyed the Studio 54 inspired living room for sale (see below), and a modern, Marie Antoinette’s custom-made bright leather pink vanity set made in Geneva (can one actually use these many adjectives in one sentence?)
Of course there are classics as well, including fine art and furniture.
Find the full catalogue here. The sale is scheduled from 13-16 March at the HdV Piguet headquarters in Plainpalais.
