Esteemed auctioneer Christoph Gaertner, of Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany, recently acquired the Schwanke auction house, located about 600 kilometres north in Hamburg, Germany.
“I am glad that our customers will continue to be supported by our proven team at its usual location,” said Hans-Joachim Schwanke in a press release issued by he and Christoph Gaertner, the firms’ respective chief executive officers, last week. “In addition they benefit from the access to the CG Company Group which may have recourse to a competent network.”
Schwanke will officially be known as Auction Galleries Hamburg formerly Schwanke GmbH and will hold its next auction Sept. 2-3 at its current Hamburg location.
Last year, Gaertner acquired another Hamburg-based firm, Edgar Mohrmann and Co., founded in 1929.
