Old Johannesburg Warehouse
Antiques, Art and Collectables Auctioneers
Old Johannesburg Warehouse Auctioneers is one of South Africa’s leading Antiques, Art & Collectables auction houses. It has an excellent reputation for its ability to achieve record prices for consignment sellers, and for its wide array of quality auction lots offered to a discerning group of local and international collectors, investors, interior decorators and dealers alike, with very competitive commission structures for both sellers and buyers.
The auction house is owner-managed by Christiaan Scholtz, former Springbok and 1995 World Cup Rugby team member, and also the previous owner of the landmark antiques shop "Die Ossewa" in Melville, Johannesburg. Christiaan is ably assisted by a team of nine auction, art and antiques specialists, and ten warehouse staff. Collectively, the team of specialists has well over 100 years experience in fields as varied as General Antiques, Fine Art, Jewellery, Period Furniture, Collectables, Africana, Militaria, Ceramics & Porcelain, Silver & Gold, Bronzes & Sculptures, Rare Books and Maps, Coins, Carpets, Classic Cars & Motorcycles, Vintage Toys, Light Fittings, Retro and Designer items, Automobilia, Tools, Industrial Antiques, Advertising and Signage Memorabilia, Watches, Gemstones, Novelty items and Antiquities, as well as Glass and Crystal.
Monthly two-day Antiques, Fine Art, Jewellery and Collectables Auctions are the norm, with typically well in excess of a thousand lots per auction. Several hundred potential buyers come to our viewing days and battle it out in the bidding arena on our auction days, all set to the unique backdrop of a massive three-story classic industrial warehouse in Selby, Johannesburg. We are conveniently located right next to the motorway, with excellent parking, delivery and collection facilities.
Besides the monthly auctions, Old Johannesburg Warehouse Auctioneers have become specialists in Classic Vehicles and Automobilia auctions which are currently held every 3 months, as well as other specialized themed auctions, including Musical Instruments, Militaria and Wine, Cigar & Spirits. These types of auctions have become somewhat of a rarity in the auction world, but we pride ourselves in the fact that we are able to professionally host, conduct and administer these with a minimal lead time and with maximum results.
Old Johannesburg Warehouse Auctioneers boasts a customer database of over 35,000 local and international clients and has the most responsive and elaborate social media profile of any antiques auction house in South Africa. We continuously strive to improve our services and offerings to our clients.
