Visit Dolf D Van Omme at PAN AMSTERDAM

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Long-term readers have heard me sing the praises of Dolf D. Van Omme – a specialist in 19th-21st C European Fine Art. If you haven’t visited their Amsterdam gallery at Eerste Bloemdwarsstraat 19, now is the perfect time to mark your calendar to visit their stall (#146) at the upcoming PAN Amsterdam to get a tiny taste of what’s in store before you walk in their gallery door!

This year at PAN, as always, Dolf D. Van Omme will have some excellent artists on display! I can’t wait to lay my eyes upon one particular piece of their collection premiering at PAN Amsterdam – a pastel by Kees van Dongen (1877-1968) titled Paris la Nuit. Of particular interest as well is the work of artist Jan Sluijters (1881-1957). Dolf D Van Omme will be displaying 5 of his modern water colors from the Esser collection.

I received Dolf D Van Omme’s invite to the Nov 22nd opening day of PAN Amsterdam and was devastated to discover I’m out of town for this sensational first day event. Alas, I’ll be returning that evening from a house hunting trip to Berlin and fear that I won’t make it before the doors close at 9pm. Nevertheless, a day later I’ll be joining the masses when the fair opens to the public! Needless to say, stall # 146 Dolf D Van Omme will be first on my list of stalls to stop and visit!

Mark your calendar for PAN Amsterdam!

  • Great News Li! My Belgian Tour Guide Lucretia finally found a source for your vintage Delvaux handbags… we can’t find a website online, but Lucretia writes:

    “I’ve been unable to email for a long time, finally I can reply to your answer. I know a really great store in Brugge, I think the name is Secondo, where they have always a large variety of used Delvaux handbags, mostly in excellent condition and rather recent, for about a third of the original price.You can actually see the shop from the central square, de Grote Markt, if you are facing the belfry and stand just in front of the line of restaurants, if you look to the left you see that shop at the end of that sidestreet.The name of that street is Phillipstockstraat, the shop is on the Mallebergplaats # 3, just around the corner.

    Li, I hope this information helps and you’ll have to keep me posted if you’re able to find what you’re looking for!
    Best Wishes,
    The Diva

  • Hi Lisa,
    You’re in Luck – I’m posting a blog today with more information on PAN Amsterdam!

    Hi Li in Wassenar – I owe you an apology – normally I would have started my research already on giving you a list of potential sources for vintage Delvaux bags, but I am in Berlin house hunting! A few weeks ago I found out I’m moving and life has been moving at warp speed every since! As soon as I get a chance, I’ll be posting a blog announcing my move giving Diva Readers all the details, but in short, not much will change on the Diva Blog Site except for now I’ll be adding Berlin Antiques Shopping Tours to the selection of tours on offer and will be writing about Germany as well as the areas I’m currently covering! But – I did want to post a quick explanation on why I’ve been a tad “out of touch!” as of late. I do have a business meeting with both my Dutch and Belgian Tour Guides tomorrow afternoon so will ask Lucretia for her suggestions for Delvaux vintage bag sources! If anyone knows a fast answer, I am certain she does!

    Li email me at so I can send you an answer directly as well.

    All my Best,
    The Antiques Diva

  • Thanks for the tip!

    PS: Next time you’re in Apeldoorn, you MUST check out Antiekhandel De Ruiter in Vaassen.

    We dropped by, after several of our Dutch friends raved about the selection of antiques this place has to offer (two warehouses jam-packed with furniture, chandeliers and collectibles – and all for a decent price).

    We bought a pristine 13 piece hand-painted Limoges tea set for 50 euros, and a beautiful Seguso feathered chandelier for 150 euros.


    Not if I can only find that Delvaux bag I’ve been searching for… 🙂

  • Excellent Tip. I will make sure and stop by their booth at PAN. Can you give me a bit more information on PAN Amsterdam – I’ve heard of it but other than an art show don’t know exactly what it is. Lisa
