Aste Bolaffi

Aste Bolaffi was founded in 1990, when it held its first auction of stamps. Over the years the sector has continued to grow with numismatics, posters, autographed documents, antique books, furniture and paintings. Now, with an experience of over twenty years marked by success and record profits, Bolaffi is considered one of the most authoritative names in the marketplace for Italian and international auction sales.
A tradition that goes back over 120 years

Even today, a brilliant sixteen-year-old who starts an original business venture and turns it, in time, into the most important company in the sector, would cause a stir.

That is what happened in Turin when, long ago in 1890, still only a boy, Alberto Bolaffi left the merchant trade of his family, a profitable business in precious stones and ostrich plume, to devote himself body and soul to his activity of philately. The philately passion and trade was later handed down to his son Giulio, and then to his grandson, Alberto.

Today, the Bolaffi, headed by Giulio Filippo Bolaffi – representative of the fourth generation of the founder family – operates in the entire sector of philately and numismatics and has extended its interest to every sector of collecting, even the most curious, niche sectors, always faithful to the motto “For us, history is a collectible object”.
