"Things have their secrets, things have their legends,
But things speak to us if we can hear"
Etienne de Baecque, Géraldine d'Ouince and Jean-Marie Sarrau, authorized auctioneers, and united by the same passion for objects, organize auctions in Lyon and Paris. The voluntary sale by public auction is a privileged moment of encounter where the extraordinary and the common meet, collectors and hunters, on the lookout for the singular work or the good deal... It is also the most transparent way to separate from a good or to acquire it. Thanks to their respective experiences, Etienne de Baecque and his partners are at your disposal to estimate your collections for sale or insurance purposes, and advise you on estate sharing, donations or any other reason. They also assist you in building your collections and guide you in your purchases, in order to seize the best opportunities in the art market.
Our auctioneers receive you every Monday, without appointment, to appraise your property free of charge, in Lyon or Paris. Surrounded by their team, they ensure that each step brings you satisfaction, from the appraisal to the settlement of the eventual sale. Specialized collaborators and an important network of experts and consultants, bring you their skills and know-how in order to make the most of the properties you entrust to us. In addition to furniture and classic art objects, DE BAECQUE et Associés organizes sales of many specialities: books, militaria, contemporary art and design, textiles, vintage, art deco,...
