Buying - easy and successful


All of our objects are inspected and described by experienced art historians and experts. Wherever possible, information on provenance, relevant literature and comparable examples in museums is given. The catalogue descriptions are based on current scientific knowledge. Furthermore, for the analysis of particular objects, we assign independent institutions to carry out infrared reflectographies and radiograph-, pigment- and material analyses.
This way, we can offer you maximum security when buying.


Bidding at HAMPEL auctions is simple and transparent.

You can bid online, submit a bidding form in writing, bid by telephone or personally in the auction room.

Should you be bidding via telephone, we will call you approximately 10 catalogue numbers before the object that you wish to bid on is called up for sale. Thus, clients do not incur any telephone costs.
