The showrooms of GALERIE CLAUDE are to be found in Köln-Deutz above the restoration workshops which specialise in restoring furniture of all periods. The building is situated adjacent to the courtyard at the back of the old Mayor's house built in 1778. Antiquitäten Friedrich, the established family business for 55 years has become the only German gallery to deal exclusively with original designer-objects of the Art Déco period since it became known under the new name GALERIE CLAUDE in 1991. Many years of practical experience working with various materials is essential for the identication of objects of outstanding quality. You will find for sale in our gallery rare designer-objects or even unique pieces (backed by signatures, literary or pictorial evidence) in a concentration rivalled by few german museums. We deal only with the most important and most influential artists of the twenties and thirties, artists like Chareau, Dunand, Printz, Lambert-Rucki, Ruhlmann, who on the basis of the quality of craftsmenship and the choice of materials match the achievements of the best ebenists of the 18th century. Each object is accompanied by detailed information material collated from our own extensive library of over 500 specialist titles.
