We would like to introduce you to Ronald Hagenauer, Auctionata expert in Design of the Hagenauer Workshop.
Ronald Hagenauer has been closely involved with items from the Hagenauer workshop for around 15 years. In the late 1990s, his father, Karl Hagenauer, a retired architect, decided to use the old location on the Opernring in Vienna to open a new antiques dealership. The focus was on items from the Hagenauer workshop that were attracting interest from the art and antiques market just a few years after the closure of the workshop in 1987.
As the business only had a handful of heirlooms from the workshop, Ronald Hagenauer busied himself with the sale and acquisition of items from the Hagenauer workshop, alongside his business administration degree at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. Over the years, therefore, thousands of items have passed through his hands and many more have been examined on the market. Subsequently, items by Carl Auböck, Walter Bosse, Richard Rohac and other Austrian workshops of the period have been added to the selection.
In addition, Mr. Hagenauer has dealt in valuable Italian racing bikes from the 1960s to 1980s for approximately three years, and also has a private interest in toys from the 1960s and 1970s.
Ronald Hagenauer is the grandson of designer Karl Hagenauer, who died in 1956.
Ronald Hagenauer lives and works in Vienna.
