Brief information about Östersunds Auktionsverk, the oldest auction house in the Jämtland region, founded in 1938
Being an auction house based in the mid-Swedish town of Östersund, we supply high quality goods and antiques from the geographical wide and culturally rich regions of Jämtland and Härjedalen, including high-class Scandinavian glass and porcelain, art, fine antiques and of course old provincial furniture and everyday items.
Depending on what you desire, there is always an auction that suits you. No matter whether you are interested in the machine auctions taking place during the summer, auctions often located somewhere in the picturesque landscape of Jämtland and Härjedalen, or our weekly auctions in our newly built auction hall located in Oviken, dominated by provincial antiques, clocks, fine glass and ceramics, there is always something for you. However, the biggest event of the year is the annual quality auction, taking place on the first Sunday in November; this is when we sell the true top-of-the-liners.
As we have access to large warehouses, storage of goods is possible. Thus, your goods can, if desired, be stored until a larger volume has been accumulated, everything to make the shipping of your goods as environmentally friendly and economic as possible. Whenever you desire, your goods will be sent through a reliable transport company to your nearest delivery point. Any boring paper work concerning for instance tolls will be taken care of at no extra charge.
