Four specialised sales are staged each year at Drouot, ranging from the arts of the 1900s right through to the design of the 1990s. Two people are assigned to the 20th century decorative arts department: Sophie Perrine and Antonio Casciello.

All fields of art are represented: glasswork by Emile Gallé, Daum, René Lalique and François Decorchemont; ceramics by Théodore Deck and furniture by Hector Guimard, Louis Majorelle and Eugène Gaillard from the 1900s period; graphic design by Alphonse Mucha, Jean Dunand, Gaston Suisse, Paul Jouve, Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, Paul Dupré Lafon, Armand Albert Rateau , André Sornay, Robert Mallet Stevens, Jean Boris Lacroix, Perzel and Desny, with furniture and lighting from the Twenties/Thirties and Forties/Fifties/Sixties by Jules Leleu, Jacques Adnet, Jean Prouvé, Mathieu Matégot, Jean Royère and leading interior design companies like Jansen, Baguès and Ramsay. Meanwhile, design is represented by Georges Jouve, Ado Chale, Fred Brouard, Willy Daro, Joe Colombo and Ron Arad, among others.
Art Deco auctions
Our lavishly documented catalogues, which are also translated into English, put the accent on the photographic quality of objects and signatures, together with the overall graphic presentation. Our buyer clientele, 80% of whom come from France, thus benefit from a working tool that has now become our real strength, and makes us stand out.
With each sale, we place substantial advertising in foreign publications, interior design magazines and websites, and 2,000 catalogues are sent out to a broad readership of private art lovers, collectors and interior designers. We provide simple, rapid valuations by email, and will make visits to people’s homes in view of sale at no charge.
A storage location in the Paris region especially assigned to this speciality guarantees security and optimum storage conditions for the items consigned to us.
