Maçka Mezat Auction House was founded in 1990 by Ahmet Utku, a well-known antique dealer in Istanbul and his wife Ayşe Utku. With a vast array of artefacts included in their sales, Maçka Mezat encouraged appreciation of Seljuk pieces, Ottoman works of art, Turkish and Orientalist paintings and early Chinese porcelain. Its memorable estate sales have set some record prices which helped spur
interest in art investment.
Since 2000, Maçka Mezat has acted as one of the major pioneers in promoting Turkish modern and contemporary art by scheduling auctions and specific events featuring Turkish artists.
Macka Mezat has helped private and corporate clients form priceless collections over the years. The company offers its services in appraisals, evaluations, art consultancy, private and public sales.
