In February last year Bonhams in London held the auction The Gentleman's Library Sale, which included the work A cold-painted and patinated bronze figural group by Bruno Zach. The »bidding war« ended at GBP 1,530 (€ 1,765), 53% above the upper estimate. Admittedly, works by Bruno Zach have also been auctioned for a multiple of this price - according to our records, the highest result so far was achieved by the work Vendeur De Tapis Sur Son Chameauan Austrian Polychrome Bronze Group Of A Tapestry Merchant in October 2007 with an auction result of EUR 7,450.

Oberer Schätzpreis um 53% übertroffen

Im Februar letzten Jahres führte Bonhams in London die Auktion The Gentleman's Library Sale durch, in der auch die Arbeit A cold-painted and patinated bronze figural group von Bruno Zach zur Versteigerung kam. Das »Bietergefecht« endete beim Preis von GBP 1.530 (€ 1.765) und damit 53% über dem oberen Schätzpreis. Freilich wurden Arbeiten von Bruno Zach auch schon für ein Vielfaches dieses Preises versteigert – das bisher höchste Ergebnis erzielte nach unseren Aufzeichnungen die Arbeit Vendeur De Tapis Sur Son Chameauan Austrian Polychrome Bronze Group Of A Tapestry Merchant im Oktober 2007 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von EUR 7.450.
