Finding the rarest of the rare collectibles takes a special and a keen eye. And spotting, collecting and cherishing noteworthy art pieces is not everybody’s cup of tea. Bridging the gap between those who create these rare pieces and ones who cherish them, is Cymmon’s Auctioneers LLP. A full scale auction house, the brand is the brainchild of Krishna Moolagundam, who himself is an avid art collector. 

Krishna’s decade-old experience and association with the art and diamond industry and a long cherished plan lead to the inception of Cymmon’s. In a world where technology, online markets and digital buying and selling are a rage, Cymmon’s brings the Midas touch by bridging the gap between diverse cultures living in the same era. 

The auction house is aimed at (and very successfully managing) bringing together collectors, galleries, museums and individuals. Always on the lookout for that notable find, the auction house looks at various valuable items across modern and contemporary art and artefacts—such as watches, gems, jewellery, books, wines and much more.  

Zarina Hashmi's Wall

Conducting auctions all around the year, Cymmon’s has a very active global network with representatives across Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata New York, London, Dubai, Hong Kong and Shenzhen. To ensure ease of accessibility, the brand also makes every action available through their official website and application, for both Android and iOS devices. Those interested just have to tune in to a medium and they can get access to catalog viewing and bidding. 

Not only this, patrons can also be a part of the private sales as the whole experience has been replicated for a seamless view right from the comfort of your house, office or any under preferred location, right at your fingertips.

Their exhibitions and auctions are one of the most sought after, not just in the country but across the globe. In an attempt to bring the best to their patrons right at the comfort of their homes, Cymmon’s has an upcoming auction on January 21, 2021. Featuring hand-picked South Asian art and jewellery, the online auction will be an ongoing one till January 22 and requires a prior registration to bid. 

Some of the highlights of the exhibit include the legendary F.N Souza’s untitled work which is an oil on canvas; Zarina Hashmi’s piece titled ‘Wall’, which is relief paper from collaged wood on handmade paper. While the estimate for Souza’s work is priced between 80 lakh to a crore, Hashmi’s piece finds an estimate between Rs 14 lakh to Rs16 lakh.

The lots at this upcoming bid also include a carefully selected 262 carat natural Columbian emerald bead necklace, which is estimated between Rs10 lakh to Rs12 lakh; and a GIA certified light pink, pear shaped diamond ring, supported by oval stones and 18k white gold, which is estimated between Rs20 lakhs to Rs24 lakhs.

All of Cymmon’s auctions are open to sellers interested in South Asian modern and contemporary art, gems, jewellery amid other items. With a team on board to guide across detailed estimations, along with a consultation with global partners and international institutions for technical and artistic evaluations of items, the auction house is fully equipped to provide detailed insights and sales strategy to the sellers. Going the extra mile, they also provide outreach services and access to the seller network before the listing in their auction catalog. 

Not just that, their services extend far beyond and consist of private sales, exhibitions, corporate events as well. Their aim is to help organisations maximise the item value and make the same possible with a detailed and more technical approach. Their latest online exhibit, slated to be held on January 21, 2021 is an example of the same. You can register for the same here.
