Suitable items
Antiques Submission Guidelines

At Catawiki we want to ensure that the items in our auctions reflect the unique, harder to find objects of value that bidders are looking for.

This is why we have set per category a minimum estimated value a lot should achieve in auction in order to be admitted.

During lot evaluation our in-house Experts carefully review and select admittable items, considering various aspects and product characteristics that determine the quality and influence the value an item is expected to sell for in our auctions. 


Please be aware: Antiques are subject to trends, so demand might fluctuate. For this reason, it’s possible that an object we accepted in the past might not be accepted in the present.

For our auctions, we’re looking for a wide range of antiques, including:

  • Decorative objects, works of art, religious objects, objects of daily and industrial use, ceramics and glassware made up until 1900.
  • Furniture made up until 1920.
  • Sculptures made up until 1940.
  • Garden and architectural objects made up until present-day.
  • Silver and gold items made up until present-day.

These antiques should:

  • Preferably be in good condition.
  • Be worth a minimum of €100 per lot.
  • Have shipping costs proportional to the object’s value.

If you need any extra guidance regarding our acceptance criteria, please find the submission guidelines attached below.
