Vilhelm Hammershøi: "Interior, Strandgade 30". Sold for: DKK 31.5 million

Film: Milestones from 2019

We look back at the auctions and remarkable hammer prices that helped define the past year.

2019 offered several successful Live Auctions in Copenhagen. In our old saleroom, the auctions resulted in record hammer prices within both art, design, antiques, jewellery and wristwatches. The most impressive price was secured by Vilhelm Hammershøi's work "Interior, Strandgade 30". At a price of DKK 31.5 million, the painting was sold at the highest hammer price ever achieved in Denmark. You can read more about the results from the latest Live Auction here.

2019 was also the year when we auctioned off both part I and part II of Prince Henrik's unique collection of Asian jade art and African figures of carved wood. The two auctions resulted in "white glove sales", where all of the lots on offer from the collection found new owners during the auction days in Copenhagen.

You can revisit some of the most impressive hammer prices of the year in the film below. Enjoy – and happy New Year!

Henry Hayden: "Bretonne". Sold for: DKK 1.95 million
