About Us Stockholms Auktionsverk was founded in 1674, on the initiative of Baron Claes Rålamb, who was Governor of Stockholm at that time. As such, we are the oldest auction house in the world still operating today. In fact, we have sold items in styles now known as Baroque, Rococo and Gustavian while they were still contemporary. Our list of distinguished customers over the centuries features names such as King Karl XI, King Gustav III, our Swedish national bard Carl Michael Bellman, and authors August Strindberg and Selma Lagerlöf.<br><br>Today, Stockholms Auktionsverk is a leading Nordic marketplace for art, crafts and antiques from a variety of ages and epochs. We operate our business in Stockholm from two addresses: Stockholms Auktionsverk at Nybrogatan 32 in Östermalm, where we hold our large quality and special auctions, and at Magasin 5 in Frihamnen, where we hold online auctions.<br><br>Stockholms Auktionsverk also has branches in Gothenburg and Malmö.<br><br>Internationally, Stockholms Auktionsverk is represented in London, Paris, Nice, New York, Brussels, Geneva, Helsinki and Oslo. Our network of international customers, dealers, collectors and other contacts is vast and growing steadily.<br><br>In addition to the large quality auctions we hold every spring and autumn at our own premises in Stockholm (Modern Art & Design, Contemporary and Fine Art & Antiques), and the online auctions we run at Magasin 5, we also organise special auctions both at our Nybrogatan premises and at Magasin 5. Stockholms Auktionsverk is the only operator on the market to hold special auctions for Books, Maps & Manuscripts (a tradition that dates back to the 1600s) and Fine and Rare Wines & Spirits auctions, which we have held every season since 2004 in collaboration with Systembolaget (The Swedish Alcohol Retail Monopoly).<br><br>Since 1995, Stockholms Auktionsverk has also comprised the very popular Antiques School. Every year, this school provides around 500 pupils with lessons in a range of areas in the fields of art, applied art and antiques, and organises a wide variety of greatly appreciated study travels, lectures, events and other activities.<br><br>Stockholms Auktionsverk can be viewed as a "stock exchange trading floor" for Swedish and international art, applied art, antiques and design. Our business is built on confidence, knowledge, tradition and personal contacts. Our staff comprises around thirty highly educated experts in a range of specialist areas, different cultures and historical periods in art, applied art and antiques.
