'Catawiki reaches exactly the right target audience I'm looking for. This is extremely beneficial for me. I started out small, but now I can live from the sales I make on Catawiki.'

'Spanish art is appreciated much more than we thought it would be abroad. We really had no idea about the international market until we joined Catawiki.'
Seller: El Testamento de Baron

The global stage that Catawiki provides is extremely attractive as it cuts out the astronomical costs associated with traditional auction houses and art galleries and helps me promote and sell my work on a large scale.'

About Catawiki's Curio auction

Between the 1660’s and 1840’s, wealthy European men and women undertook what has become known as the “Grand Tour” - an educational or leisure trip through Europe and beyond. On their journey, participants on the grand tour began to collect various items and objects, giving rise to huge and impressive collections, containing architectural and decorative items from Europe; religious and ceremonial objects from distant lands; rare books and exoctic objects. Today, flea-markets or curiosity shops house specialist, unusual and intriguing items, popular with collectors who prefer to acquire objects in this way, rather than focusing on a specific specialism or area of interest.

Catawiki’s Curio auctions feature a diverse and eclectic range of curious objects from around the world. Noteworthy lots to have sold in Catawiki’s curio auctions include a 20th century Nain carpet, which sold for £3,369 and a Guillotine, circa 1793, which sold for £6,413. Whether you have a Copper diving helmet, a multi-coloured glass Chihuahua or a beautiful Tiffany lamp, Catawiki’s curio auctions are the perfect place to sell your unusual curiosities and special objects. Our expert auctioneers supervise our auctions, while our notary officials work to guarantee the validity of bids placed. Once your item has sold, our secure payment system provides peace of mind for sellers and buyers alike.
