OstLicht Camera Auction: 1 pm CEST

OstLicht Photo Auction: 6 pm CEST


Dear friends of camera technology and its history, dear collectors! 


After 34 successful WestLicht auctions under my direction in the years 2001 – 2018 and the first OstLicht Camera Auction last year, we are pleased to present a very special camera auction in addition to the traditional OstLicht Photo Auction. It is a particular pleasure for us to be able to offer the first part of one of the world's finest Leica collections. 33 years of experience with classic cameras have made it possible for us to bring this unique collection to Vienna. We would like to thank everyone who made this auction possible. 
On Wednesday, 5th June at 1 pm we will start with this high-class camera auction in our photo gallery OstLicht. I would like to cordially invite you to come to Vienna to visit the auction in person. Vienna is always worth a visit, especially at this time of the year. We can assure you that we will make your stay as pleasant as possible. For hotel bookings etc. we are at your disposal.
Of course, we are also happy to welcome you on the phone or via the Internet. On our homepage you can place absentee bids from April or bid live without additional fees. You will also find around 2500 additional detailed photos of the auction lots.
We will be happy to send further condition reports or answer questions about the auction by e-mail ( or telephone (+43 664 2011850). 
Our traditional photo auction will take place on the same day at 6 pm. At this auction, the 29th under our direction, a great selection of classic photography of the 19th and 20th century awaits you.
The preview in the gallery OstLicht is from Monday, 3rd June 2 pm to Wednesday, 5th June 1 pm or by appointment. 
Our long-standing auctioneer Niki Schauerhuber and our team would like to welcome you. 


Warm regards,
Peter Coeln
