One of the oldest auction houses in the world
Uppsala Auktionskammare was founded in 1731 and is one of the oldest auction houses in the world. Auctions have a long and solid tradition in Uppsala and the first auction in Sweden mentioned in written sources was held in 1639 in Uppsala.
Today the auction house is one of the leading auction houses in Sweden with auctions of fine art and antiques. Over the last decade the auction house has sold over 200 lots that have reached over one million Swedish kronor, many within the Russian segment, but also Old master paintings and Chinese objects. Our successful Important Sales have attracted a lot of attention internationally.
Uppsala Auktionskammare continues to explore new markets and segments. In recent years, sales of Chinese objects, modern & contemporary art and modern design have resulted in many successful results for our clients.
Since 1996, Knut Knutson, known from the Antiques Roadshow on Swedish television, is the main owner of Uppsala Auktionskammare. The market shares have since then increased. The auction house have now offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Uppsala.
