Artwork auctioned at five times the upper estimate price

When the work Lolita Vase, 1994 by Ettore Sottsass was auctioned at Sothebys in Paris in November 2017, the result exceeded expectations many times over. The upper estimate was set at - in retrospect quite modest - EUR 5,000.00 but the actual price achieved was more than five times as high at EUR 25,000.00. Of course, this price has nothing to do with the top prices that other works by Ettore Sottsass achieve. The highest price we have observed so far was reached by the work Composizione di elementi di legno colorato e specchio, il tutto unito da funi di canapa, designed for Galleria Arform, Milan in April 2018 with an auction result of GBP 309,000.00 (€ 351,918.09).

Kunstwerk zum Fünffachen des oberen Schätzpreises versteigert

Als die Arbeit Lolita Vase, 1994 von Ettore Sottsass im November 2017 bei Sothebys in Paris versteigert wurde, übertraf das Ergebnis die Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches. Der obere Schätzpreis war mit – rückwirkend betrachtet recht bescheidenen – EUR 5.000,00 angesetzt, der tatsächlich erzielte Preis hingegen war mit EUR 25.000,00 mehr als fünfmal so hoch. Dieser Preis hat freilich nichts mit den Spitzenpreisen zu tun, die andere Arbeiten von Ettore Sottsass erzielen. Den höchsten von uns bisher beobachteten Preis erreichte die Arbeit Composizione di elementi di legno colorato e specchio, il tutto unito da funi di canapa, designed for Galleria Arform, Milan im April 2018 mit einem Auktionsergebnis von GBP 309.000,00 (€ 351.918,09).
