Invitation to the aperitif following the auction

At the conclusion of the auction on 6th October 2023, we look forward to ending the evening enjoying an aperitif together.

We have improved our online catalogue and live bidding!

Basically, nothing has changed in the process. The online catalogues now open in a new window. You log in there using your email address and password.
Previously, when using our old website, you would log in on the "left" side in the menu tree. Now you can do this at the top right of the online catalogue. New customers will also find a link to create a customer account there. Alternatively, you can also select the respective button on this page.
Once logged in, you can apply for a credit limit and place bids in advance via the website, or bid live on the auction day. The link to live bidding will appear here on Friday 6 October 2023.
Corinphila now uses the same platform as the Heinrich Köhler auction house. So if you have already gained experience there, you will feel right at home.
