We are one of the leading auction houses in the world for picture postcards and philatelic items. Our auctions have an excellent reputation for buyers as well as for sellers by offering excellent customer service with a personal touch. Furthermore, you can rely on decades of experience, discretion and success. In our last auction more than 48,000 bids were submitted to us from all over the world with a sales rate of about 90%.

The demand for high quality postcards, stamps and coins is stronger than ever and can hardly be met. Now is a peak time for consignors of high quality single lots and substantial collections and you should not hesitate to consign for one of our forthcoming Stade-Auctions.


Consigning to Stade Auctions – it’s easier than you might think.
