Brompton's and Tarisio post June auction results

Friday, 05 July 2013

Tarisio and Brompton's have released the results of their June sales. The two auction houses both held sales in London. Brompton’s claimed a world auction record for an Alessandro Gagliano instrument, with a 1709 violin by the Neapolitan maker selling for £312,000. Another highlight was an English cello by J.F. Lott, which made £96,000.

Tarisio’s top lot was a Pressenda violin from 1828 (pictured), which fetched £276,800. The internet auction house also had two violin bows in its top five, with an F.X. Tourte making £60,000 and a Persoit, which was owned by Leila Josefowicz, fetching £48,000.

Tarisio also ran a sale for speculative, restorable and trade instruments in New York on 12–13 June, at which a c.1820 violin smashed its $3,000–$5,000 estimate to make $36,000.

Below are the top five lots from each sale. All sale prices include buyer’s premium.
