The most beautiful auction items are made with love and craftsmanship.
After working in a hotel for years, Erik van den Berg decided he wanted to be his own boss. He found the freedom he’d always wanted in the antiques trade. Antiques were always a hobby and, inspired by his neighbour, he transformed it into his profession. After starting out small in a shared shop, Erik gradually got a feel for the profession and opened his own shop. He learned from his good and bad purchases and used all his senses to assess antiques. Over 20 years later, he has every reason to claim to be an expert at assessing antiques.
This has come in handy for Erik as an auctioneer. Thanks to his experience, he can also use photographs to get a good impression of the huge variety of items that come his way. Contact with the seller is also an important aspect. For example, to definitively determine from what material an item is made. An antique’s value is not always the deciding factor for Erik. He really loves including antiques that show a lot of love and craftsmanship in his auction.
