We would like to introduce you to Stephan Trunetz, Auctionata expert in Corkscrews & Solinger steel ware.
Stephan Trunetz came to the medical academy of the German armed forces in Munich for his military service, and stayed there until 1990. It was here where his career aspiration was shaped, and so he studied human medicine at the University of Vienna.
However, some trips abroad and his passion for collecting then led him to his true calling: trading small antiques. His endeavours to build up his own collection, led him to numerous antique fairs.
The expert's specialist areas are based on his fascination with everyday art, and the handicraft skills of the pre-industrial and start of the industrialisation phase in the late 19th century to the middle of the 20th century. Corkscrews, pocket knives, cigar cutters, old Solingen and Thüringen steel and iron wares are amongst his specialist areas.
Since 1996 he has worked, on the one hand, in pharmaceutical wholesale, and on the other hand in antique retail, and has a not insignificant collection to call his own.
Stephan Trunetz lives and works in Baden.
