  • History & Activity

    The Piasa auction house is the result of collaborations between auctioneers, who in 1996 originally founded the firm in Paris. The Piasa auction house conducts numerous auctions locally and internationally and operates out of several venue locations in France. Auctions take place several times a month and occasionally reflect various modern or traditional themes to satisfy the interests of both audiences. Piasa has hosted more than 500 auctions since its founding and offers an average of 60 sales per year.

    Although the Piasa house offers a variety of live-auction items, a few have been of particular interest based on the sales price and cultural significance. In October of 2014, a private collection owned by Fulvio Bianconi was sold at the Piasa auction house for a staggering figure close to 1 million Euros -- a number that set a new record for the sellers. The collection was acquired over more than 30 years and paid homage to the biggest names in Italian glassmaking.

    Recently, the Piasa house announced the upcoming auction of a 14th century marble head reported to be cast in the image of Jeanne de Bourbon, who was the wife of King Charles V. It’s value could far exceed initial estimates of 500,000-1 million Euros if confirmed as a fragment from Jeanne’s vandalized tomb.

    Services & Staff

    The Piasa feature numerous items for sale, including modern photography, ornate jewelry, archaeological finds, Asian, Islamic, and Medieval art, and even the oldest wines and spirits. 20th century decorative arts and design are also offered, bridging the gap between old and new treasures.

    Staffed by consultants, financial advisors, and highly qualified specialists, the Piasa house offers the assurance of excellence and expertise in their field. Chairman Chief Executive Alain Cadio has successfully directed the business endeavors of the Piasa house since 2011 and is supported by Frederic Chambre as Vice President.
