About the Venue

The auction house Bukowskis was established in Stockholm in 1870 by the Polish nobleman Henryk Bukowski (1839-1900). From the very beginning Henryk Bukowski understood the importance of selling only high quality works of art and antiques. He also realized the strength of having high standard auction catalogues with precise description of every object. Between 1870 and 1940 several important collections of royal origin were sold at Bukowskis. Through these sales the auction house won a worldwide reputation among buyers and collectors. After the Second World War the auction business in Sweden generally became more modern, changing from almost private sales to public happenings with anonymous sellers. Thanks to this the auctions became more popular enabling more auctions to be held every year. Bukowskis century-long history in Sweden as the leading auction house for high quality objects was in the 1970's well-known also in Finland. To serve the Finnish customers an office was opened in Helsinki in 1979. Since then Bukowski has held over 100 auctions in Helsinki at which several pieces of Finnish art have fetched record prices. Due to the historical background of Finland Russian artefacts like paintings, silver, furniture, porcelain and jewellery occur frequently in the catalogues. Every year a number of objects are sold to international buyers and collectors.
