Furniture and Works of Art

For over ninety years antique and vintage furniture auctions have represented a cornerstone for Pandolfini, a fixed point of reference that is constantly referred to by collectors and lovers of antiques, who, in our catalogues, are sure to find the right item capable of capturing their attention, creating interest, and encouraging them to participate in our auctions.

The results of Pandolfini’s sales volume for furniture and works of art testifies to the strength and dynamism of the sector, with excellent results achieved year after year, despite significant changes taking place in the art market and the evolving preferences of collectors.

In recent years, the success achieved in the sales of furniture and furnishings testifies to the importance of the sector and the leading role that Pandolfini Casa d'Aste plays as an important point of reference for collectors of antique furniture, rare and exquisite furnishings, decorations, and works of art.

The lots proposed in the auctions are fruit of an attentive selection by the Auction House’s experts, who constantly strive to see, study, and evaluate furniture and works of art coming from private collections, which are often accompanied by important and original stories, capable of capturing the interest of our enthusiastic collectors.

These auctions offer a wide variety of furniture and works of art created over the centuries, ranging from Medieval times all the way up to the Nineteenth century, as the fruit of the talent of extremely skilled artisans or bona fide artists, whose works, even after many centuries, still manage to spark interest and a desire to collect in many lovers of art. Naturally, the origin is almost always Italian, with an equal representation of the various regions of the Peninsula: Lombardian, Venetian, Roman, Tuscan, and Neapolitan just to cite some of the areas of origin, with items that range from commodes to armchairs, from chandeliers to mirrors, from tables to objects of art.

Many important results have been achieved in recent years, including the auctioning of an important 18th century Lombardian fall-front desk sold for € 60,000, an extraordinary 18th century Sicilian commode sold for € 47,500, a rare commode by Giovanni Mafezzoli dating to around 1800 sold for € 100,000, a pair of marble Putti sculptures by Battista sold in October 2019 for € 50,000, and a sophisticated Venetian wall mirror from the 18th century sold for € 43,750.

The increasing number of sales in antique furniture auctions is fruit of the professionalism of our experts, who are attentive to the phase of valuation and that of collecting and cataloguing the furniture and works of art to be included in the auctions, but it is also the result of the mutually beneficial relationship of trust that we build with our clientele. These are the pillars that fully support Pandolfini Casa d’Aste’s activity. The acquisition of precious and unusual items is a fundamental step in proposing rare antique furniture and works of art to our customers, art lovers, and enthusiastic collectors, who can use them to adorn privately owned spaces, office spaces, or for completing their very own collections of art. 

Those who would like to sell their antique or rare furniture, period furnishings, and works of art or sculptures can request an initial valuation by sending us a photograph of the item: our experts are at your complete disposition for a free and confidential valuation of individual objects or entire collections.
