PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF OTTO VON MITZLAFF (LOTS 114-126 & 542-545)
Otto von Mitzlaff, the distinguished furniture specialist from Wächtersbach, near Frankfurt, is best known to collectors for his elegant stands at the annual TEFAF Art Fair in Maastricht. Reflecting his personal taste and good eye, his stands always feature exquisite neo-classical furniture and in particular highlights from the Neuwied workshops of the celebrated ébénistes Abraham and David Roentgen. Von Mitzlaff’s passion for Germany’s most successful cabinet-makers goes back many decades and resulted in him moving his family into the beautiful Prinzessinnenhaus situated vis à vis of Schloss Wächtersbach. This charming little palais still retains many original features, including its magnificent carved front doors, which were supplied in 1745 from the workshops of Abraham Roentgen. The von Mitzlaff family still resides at the Prinzessinnenhaus and it is from here that the following items have been consigned for sale.
