Russian Art & Fabergé

Russian Art & Fabergé

Russian art has during the last decade emerged as the most expansive and coveted in the art market. Russia’s economy has grown in importance and the interest in their cultural heritage is great. In the past, a large part of the Russian heritage was dispersed all over the world, not least in Sweden.

Since the market arise and eventually exploded in the beginning the 2000s, Uppsala Auktionskammare has been the largest auction house in the Nordic countries for Russian art and applied arts.

Through our collaboration with internationally recognized experts, we possess a unique expertise in the Russian field. This expertise has given us a very good reputation among our foreign clients, primarily in Russia but also in Europe and the U.S. As example of our well-established position in the international art market are the 2006 and 2009 Russian auctions when Uppsala Auktionskammare was entrusted to sell objects from the Princess Olga Romanoff’s collection.

Uppsala Auktionskammare has over the years reached many one million SEK sales, and even eight-figure sums for Russian art and works of art. We have been entrusted to sell paintings by masters such as Ivan Aivazovsky, Alexei Petrovich Bogoliubov, Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin, Alexander Ivanov and Nikolai Petrovich Bogdanov-Belsky.

Concerning silver- and gold art works, icons, and jewellery, the demand is mainly for the works by Fabergé, Rückert, Sazikov, and Chlebnikov. When it comes to Russian porcelain and glass, it is objects made during the second half of the 19th century in the Imperial Porcelain and Glass Manufacturers that are highly sought after at our auctions. A combination of high-quality craftsmanship and design is considered as typically Russian and is strongly demanded regardless of material and technique.

Uppsala Auktionskammare has developed a large international clientele who appreciate our reliability, expertise and personal attention. We have over the years reached many one million sales, and even eight-figure sums for Russian silver, jewellery, icons and art works.
