Bel Etage

    For over 30 years, Vienna-native Wolfgang Bauer's life has revolved around beautiful, Jugendstil antiques. His store, Bel Etage, is very much a labor of love, the culmination of years of dedicated collecting. One merely needs to look in the shop windows to realize that this place is something special, more like a museum than an antiques retailer. The comparison is apt when one considers that several items from Bauer's collection have been on loan in museums all over Europe. There are no replicas in Bel Etage. Everything sold here, from the teacups to the armoires, is an original piece. This might sound intimidating, and an original Loos or Hoffmann piece certainly doesn't come cheap, but Bauer is extremely friendly and engaging with everyone who visits his store. After all, he has had a lot of practice. Art collectors from all over the world have been visiting Bel Etage for decades. The oldest piece in the collection, a grandfather clock in the neo-gothic style, dates back to 1870. Show lessRead more
