Wim van Stormbroek

Auctioneer Archaeological Finds & Remains / Natural History

I think it’s important that the items on offer are high quality.

Wim van Stormbroek

Wim van Stormbroek regularly found arrowheads and flints as a small boy. It’s what happens when you live on the site of an ancient Stone Age settlement. Mesmerised, he would watch excavations and it didn’t take long for him to have a go himself. He conducted several excavations, where he dug up his own artefacts. Once he set up his own artefacts gallery, he handled many more discoveries; from a Roman chair to a simple fibula. In addition to his gallery, Wim also appraised professional archaeological finds in the art and antiques TV programme Schatgraven. During twenty years in this role, Wim saw and sold thousands of pieces, giving him vast expertise in the field and an invaluable network.

Wim now uses his expertise for Catawiki. Everything shows up at his archaeological and artefacts auction; from Neolithic flints to Egyptian sarcophagus masks. He believes it is important that the listed items are authentic. His experience as a dealer and appraiser come in handy here. He can often tell within a few seconds whether an object is interesting enough for his auction.

  • Worked as an appraiser
  • Owned his own artefacts gallery
  • Over 30 years' experience
