If you want to get the best deal on antique purchases, shopping at an auction house is the only way to go!

My advice – skip the middleman and shop at an auction yourself! Should you be afraid to go alone, never fear The Antiques Diva™ Tours offers auction house services whereby a local, native speaker attends auction events with you! We help you evaluate items for purchase in the pre-sale viewing, explain the auction process, either bid on your behalf at auction or better yet, teach you how an auction works so that you are able to bid in future auctions on your own!

Some upcoming “not to miss” auctions at De Eland Auction House in Diemen include:
Viewing Days / Auction Date
6,7,8,9 November 2008 / 9 November, 2008
15, 16, 17, 18 January 2008 / 18 January, 2009

De Zwaan Auction House in A’dam also has a very interesting sale from 4 – 19 November, 2008. See the website to view the online auction catalog and see which items will be auctioned on what days!

The viewing days will be:
Thursday, Oct 30 10am-5pm and 7pm–9pm
Friday, Oct 31 10am-5pm
Saturday, Nov 1 10am-5pm
Sunday, Nov 2 10am – 5pm

Last but not least, don’t forget the gorgeous upcoming Sotheby’s Sale – December 3, 2008. Sotheby’s Amsterdam will devote a special section of its Modern and Contemporary Art sale to CoBrA and the North European Avant Garde from the 1950’s. The young group of Northern European post-war artists that called themselves CoBrA (acronym for Copenhagen Brussels Amsterdam) in 1948 are nowadays considered the key representatives of a colorful and volatile expressionistic style. They are in fact one of a series of key movements in the unpredictable artistic developments that mark the mid 20th century in our region. Key figures of CoBrA are the Dutch artists Karel Appel, Corneille, Constant and Asger Jorn from Denmark.

    Kel, Merci Beaucoup for the compliment on the attire – coming from a Wardrobe Stylist I’m flattered you noticed! This Ralph Laren jacket is my favorite in my wardrobe and I live in it during the fall weather. Coincidentally this pic of my tour guide Lucretia and I was taken in Paris when we were there for the Sotheby’s Silver Sale!

    Eileen – Indeed, Auctions in Europe are a blast!! We need to get you to a few of them! You’d love it! Imagine what fun we’d have!

    All my best,
    The Antiques Diva (TM)
