Auction houses, ideally near Basel

Hello everyone,

We're about to engage in some serious downsizing, and would like to know if there are any auction houses in Switzerland (ideally in or reasonably near Basel) that would take items like antique Chinese & Asian furniture & ceramics. The value is probably CHF 10 - 15K, so not super high end, but they are nice and collectable pieces (that just won't fit into the flat we will be moving to). In the UK, there are auction houses close to most of the main towns that would take these kinds of items, and probably many other household items, but I just haven't come across these kind of businesses in Switzerland. Many thanks in advance.

Garage sale? Put your stuff outside and put a sign ''Antiquitäten''.

Well, we probably will offer a lot of stuff gratis, or in a garage sale, but not for the things I mentioned in the first post. Google is not helping me find an auction house, but if anyone does know of one, that would be much appreciated.

The Swiss online auction house ricardo has a big antiques section here.

I have used it and sometimes successfully sold stuff and sometimes not.

That's definitely worth thinking about - thank you.
