  • About Auktionshaus Kiefer

    Company information on KIEFER rare books

    In 1979, Peter Kiefer founded, inspired by his passions for collecting antiquarian books, the Antiquarian Bookshop Peter Kiefer. After the turnover and the number of regular customers had risen continuously over the years, the first auction catalog was published in 1985.

    The number of auctions has increased steadily so that by now, the auction house Kiefer has 16 employees and covers 1800 sqm .

    We represent our customers on national and international antiquarian fares. Moreover, we are present on all relevant internet sites.

    Due to our organisational structure, we are able to face new challenges besides our regular 3 book and art auctions. For example, in 2000, we auctioned off about 60.000 items of a Southern German prince's library, one year later we carried out a special auction with 16.000 cookbooks from Rolf Dittmar's collection. Lateron, we organised ajewelery auction on behalf of the tax office of Pforzheim.

    The dissolution of the monestary "Zum Heiligen Grab" in Baden-Baden in 2003and the auction of the entire fittings (furniture, carpets, housewares, library, etc.) on behalf of the bishopric of Freiburg constituted a highlight. The fact, that this was the first time, a monestary's fittings were auctioned off publically, is even more impressing.

    Moreover, in 2004, we organised and co-financed the "Salvador Dali - Das Goldene Zeitalter" Exhibition with 800 exhibits in Schloss Bruchsal. With a duration of three months and more than 60.000 visitors, the exhibtions was a hugh success.

In case of equal bids the lot will be drawn. The auctioneer can divide or combine lots, change the order and withdraw lots on reasonable grounds. In doubt the sale of a lot can underlie reservations.
