Top Lots
The Department of Decorative Arts of the 20th Century is the last arrival at Maison Bibelot. Nevertheless, in more than twenty years of activity, the auction house has always paid particular attention to the art of Twentieth century. Sales catalogs were often proposing works in porcelain, glass and bronze made by the most renowned masters such as Giò Ponti, Galileo Chini, Francesco Nonni, Emile Gallè and the most famous Italian and International manufacturers, Richard Ginori, Lenci, Laveno, Goldscheider, Fontana Arte, Amphora, Venini, Barovier, Daum, often reporting sales records. The idea of introducing a Department of Decorative Arts of the 20th century, arises from the need to offer to our customers an accurate consulting service through the organization of auctions specialized in the sector; the sale of their collections, will be entrusted to one of the most famous italian experts in the field. The Department carries out assessments for hereditary divisions and insurance purposes.
