Silver tureen with lid Daniel Lundgren
When a piece of silver of this importance reaches the market, collectors line up for an opportunity to acquire a historical piece. A magnificent terrine where the softly shaped smooth surfaces contrast with richly decorated details. Originally part of a pair where the other is included in the collections at Stockholm Palace.

A Swedish late 18th century Gustavian eight-light chandelier
It’s fantastic to sell a chandelier of the absolute highest quality, where the provenance and history can be followed all the way. The famous ”Österbykrona” had everything collectors and clients are looking for.
