Nienke Voorhuis

Auctioneer Antiques

Catawiki feels like an extension of myself.

Nienke Voorhuis is inextricably linked to antiques. This is a direct consequence of her parents, who were antique wholesalers with multiple antique shops. Her decision to study History of Art did therefore not come as a surprise. The degree taught her the theoretical aspects of the field and how to do critical research. Very useful, but according to Nienke Voorhuis you only really learn the tools of the trade in practice. That’s why she opened her own shop in The Hague while she was still studying, a shop which she held onto for 15 years. After that she moved to South America where she worked as a consultant. This way she has built a vast international network and speaks various languages.

Throughout her life, Nienke Voorhuis has held thousands of objects. This has enabled her to appraise the lots offered here at Catawiki by looking at their photos alone. Her specialty is antique sculptures and applied art, from the early 20th century up until the late Middle Ages. Apart from an interest in the materials, she is intrigued by the beautiful decorations that narrate stories about the time in which they were produced and their use. Nienke Voorhuis likes to keep an open mind and, combined with her natural curiosity, this allows her to acquire new knowledge on a daily basis.
