Expert Asian Art & Objects

Picking out that one masterpiece that everyone just walks past. That’s where I get my kicks!

Simon Breider

Simon Breider was always on the lookout at thrift shops, antique markets and fairs. Before he started working as an auctioneer at Catawiki, he spent 25 years using his sharp eye to make a living, looking for that one masterpiece that others just walked past. And he did well. He often sold on objects at a profit, sometimes for ten times the price. Playing the market like that shows a real understanding. He has come across tens of thousands of objects, which gives him a lot of experience. Yet Simon believes that there is still more to learn. As an auctioneer, he is quick to consult one of his specialist books which measure a full seven metres on his bookshelves. Or to consult experts who are happy to advise him on the more exotic items that Catawiki comes across.

He is happy to use all that knowledge for his Asian lots, which involve a wide variety of objects, often from the most diverse materials and eras. Simon hopes to auction more Venetian glass for the glass auction: “Top pieces from the 1950s by Dino Martens or Paolo Venini would be wonderful additions to the lovely lots that can now be found at Catawiki.”
