Arjan de Haan

Expert Antiques / Curio

I inherited my father’s passion for collecting pipes.

Arjan  de Haan

Arjan de Haan’s passion for tobacco pipes began at a young age. Together with his father, he would look for clay pipes in newly ploughed land. His father’s collection grew and included increasingly more exclusive examples. In the meantime, Arjan started collecting lighters, before quickly moving on to tobacco pipes. As an adolescent he saw the business opportunity in antique smoking items and he successfully traded both at fairs and online. He also regularly publishes his own research on Ottoman pipes, amongst other things, and was involved in setting up a museum in Sumatra.

Needless to say, Arjan has since earned his stripes as a tobacco specialist. He now uses that knowledge and experience at Catawiki. He particularly appreciates the personal contact that is possible through Catawiki. It helps him to solve problems quickly and to establish good relationships with bidders and sellers. Arjan strives to include a broad selection of items in his auctions, which reflect the great diversity of smoking items. He hopes to ensure there is something interesting for everyone.
