Unique objects,
which already tell a story, are my passion.

In particular, my interest are stoves, so called “artists’ furnaces” from the period from 1900 to 1935. Never before, the elements stove and art were united as during this time. The call of this era was the inclusion of art into everyday life and so the fusion of “Art and Life”. Well-known international artists such as Dagobert Peche, Otto Prutscher, Vally Wieselthier, Josef Hoffmann, Emilie Schleiß, Robert Obsieger, Hertha Bucher, Michael Powolny, Bertold Löffler and others have not only designed ovens, but even sometimes hand-laid. Some furnaces have been repeatedly made, others were made only once for aristocrats and actors. With them the ovens often travelled throughout the whole world.

In those days the magnificent stoves were not built just only for their determination but were unique. Many of these stoves have been unfortunately destroyed over time and others got into oblivion through the advance of modern heaters. However, these artists’ furnaces currently are experiencing a revival, because the designs and the craftsmanship of these international artists are now back in the spotlight as never before.

I am also enthusiastic for purchasing and selling less specific, but also high-quality antiques of all kinds. I will gladly come to you to look upon your interesting objects. In my Antique Store in Kitzbühel, Austria, I offer a large choice of pieces, just look over!

Furthermore I am your specialist for professional and careful restoration of furniture and upholstery in my atelier in the Austrian place Lambach. With my now 25-year professional experience in the industry, I have unfortunately seen many unprofessionally restored furniture. It’s an obligation to deal with this type of furniture, showing a certain love and understanding is necessary in order to bring them back to original state. My motto is: “Only professional restoration adds value and brings joy!”

I look forward to your inquiry and your interest!
