The Story of our Auction House
On October 3rd, 2012, Mr. Christian Neumann (born 1973) fulfilled himself a lifelong dream: he opened his very own Auction House, located in Bahnhofstraße 8, 29221 Celle.
It all began 1985, when he moved to Shanghai, China for three years together with his family. His parents were there to establish the newly founded "German School of Shanghai" vor Volkswagen.
Even before 1985, he had begun to forage for 'treasures' in old and antique markets.
Now that he was in Shanghai, his passion gained new dimensions:
He bought and sold Chinese and Colonial antiques to the foreigners he knew in Shanghai. After his return to Germany in 1988, he successfully completed his education and thereafter mercantile training.
Christian Neumann then worked as salesman for antique carpets and in the auction business. During the 10 years preliminary to founding his Auction HOuse, he worked for Antiques Art GmbH in Wathlingen and at the Auction House Eicklingen.
His areas expertise are, among others:
- Furniture and Interiors of the 18th and 19th Centuries
- Jugendstil & Art-Deco
- Old & Antique Carpets
- Silver, Watches, Glass & Porcelain, Graphic Arts & Paintings
