Vintage jewellery from W.A. Bolin’s own production, and particularly from the Russian and early Swedish epoch, fetches increasingly high prices at auction and among international collectors and dealers. Fabergé, also Court Jeweller and Bolin’s contemporary in Moscow and St. Petersburg, has for several decades been a favourite among collectors but the fact is that Bolin was Russia’s most prominent jewellery house with considerably higher status than Fabergé throughout the entire 19th century. Experts have long been aware of this fact but it is only recently that it has become more widely known, which explains the rise in prices. We are also seeing a growing demand for more contemporary vintage jewellery from W.A. Bolin from the post-war era, the 50s, 60s and 70s.
We are always on the lookout for older Bolin jewellery, particularly items dating back to the Russian epoch. We are also interested in antique jewellery – or vintage jewellery as it is also called – from other leading names such as Cartier, Bulgari, Boucheron, Fabergé, Vevér, Van Cleef et Arpels and Tiffany & Co. Swedish jewellers such as C.F. Carlman, H. Strömdahl, K.A. Andersson and silversmith Wiwen Nilsson are also in great demand.
Most of the antique jewellery procured by W.A. Bolin is sold at our spring and autumn auctions, although we do occasionally receive offers to buy vintage jewellery and silver objects. These types of sales are more a consequence of our business as a jewellery manufacturer. As an auctioneer, we cannot guarantee the quality or scope of this selection. Those interested in antique jewellery, silver objects and precious ornaments will however find it worthwhile to keep up to date by visiting our shop and here at http://www.bolin.se/en/.
