Koller

Koller is an auction house with headquarters in Zürich, Switzerland. The business dates back to 1958 when Pierre Koller opened a gallery of equestrian engravings and antique furniture.

Koller’s first auction was held two years later and before long the company was conducting sales of furniture, porcelain and modern art on a regular basis. Today the firm operates a group of offices across Europe including in Germany and Italy as well as Switzerland.
