How things will continue with Rolli Auctions & Philately from 27th April 2022

Rölli Auktionen AG is alive!

This is how the Rölli Auctions continue! The next auction date has already been set: the 71st auction will take place on the usual autumn weekend on Friday/Saturday, 16 and 17 September 2022 in Lucerne. Consignments can be accepted until 20 June 2022.

From 16 to 18 February 2022, the last Rölli stamp auction took place in Rothenburg, with Christina Rölli as business manager. In the summer of 2021, business partner Peter Suter had to leave the company from one day to the next for health reasons. As his expertise is extremely comprehensive, no one could be found to take his place. Therefore, after careful consideration, Christina Rölli decided to give up the auction business after the current auction and to downsize.

Reorientation of the previous managing director

Christina Rölli will open a small floor shop with an online shop for stamps, face value and accessories at Buzibachring 10 in Rothenburg (opposite the current location) on 27 April 2022. She will also continue to run the secretariat of the Federation of Swiss Philatelic Societies. She will be assisted by her brother Jean-Claude Rölli and hopefully in the not too distant future by former employee Manuela Bürgisser-Rigioni, who is still ill.

A successor solution became apparent at the end of January

Shortly before the start of the "last" auction, a solution was found for the continuation of Rölli Auktionen AG. Frank Uray (www.briefmarken.world), a second-generation dealer and philatelist, and his partner, Britt A. Schönbeck, a passionate collector since childhood, have taken over the well-known Lucerne auction house. They will hold the 71st Rölli Auction at the Hotel Schweizerhof in Lucerne on 16/17 September 2022. The auction lots can be viewed at any time by appointment in the new offices in Aesch | LU and of course also before & during the auction in Lucerne. For all those travelling to Aesch by public transport, a free private shuttle will be provided from Lucerne or Hitzkirch.
Christina Britt Frank2Five years ago, Frank Uray (55) took over the stamp stock of his late father Oscar Uray, who had been dealing in stamps full-time in Stansstad since the 1970s. In the last five years, Frank Uray has been able to establish himself as an online stamp dealer on the side. More and more, the desire arose to deal in stamps full-time. He and his partner Britt A. Schönbeck (48) contacted various dealers, and now this plan can be realised.

The auction house will continue to be run professionally, sympathetically and purposefully as usual. Among other things, the Austrian offer will be expanded. At the same time, Uray wants to increasingly take into account the needs of smaller collectors and expand this offer. Christina Rölli and Peter Suter will continue to support the new owners with their experience and expertise. At the "HELVETIA 2022" in Lugano you can meet the new owners of Rölli Auktionen AG at stand A 9.
