Leonne van Bakel

Auctioneer Antiques / Ceramics

I have a real weakness for Delftware.

Leonne van Bakel

With over ten years’ experience in the ‘high-end’ art trade, Leonne van Bakel is familiar with the finest pottery. She has handled it all at international fairs like Tefaf, Brafa and Pan. You could say that she has been spoiled, but luckily she has not lost her eye for other antique pottery. She has a particular weakness for Delftware, which was the subject of her art history thesis.

Leonne acquired a broad knowledge during her studies and has since learned where and how to find out more. A skill that is now incredibly useful to her as an auctioneer. With her grounding in antique pottery and the international art trade, she is able to estimate the value of many objects. The huge variety on offer at Catawiki continues to broaden her horizons, which Leonne really enjoys. She is fascinated by all the special objects that come along and hopes to convey that enthusiasm in her auctions.
