These objects tell stories about the war that not everyone knows.

  • Avid militaria collector
  • Worked for more than 7 years as dealer
  • Large network
Adrie de Koster

It was a letter from his grandfather, written to his wife during the First World War, that really touched Adrie de Koster. This military mail from a trench in the middle of a battlefield provided a unique perspective of the war. So Adrie started collecting military letters. Then came photographs, medals and, ultimately, all kinds of militaria, especially from the First World War. Adrie established a lot of contacts at fairs and also started to concentrate on trading so he could finance the pieces that he wanted for his own collection.

As a result Adrie can flawlessly determine where militaria comes from and its value. When in doubt about pieces, he can rely on his large network and a collection of very thick reference books. In the relatively small militaria world, Adrie has built strong relationships with suppliers. He knows that helmets are especially popular amongst collectors, so he likes to include them in his auctions, which serve die-hard collectors and amateur enthusiasts.

Albert Goldenbeld

Albert Goldenbeld has been working with Catawiki since the beginning. He has also seen the art auction grow into one of the largest online art auctions in Europe. This rapid growth needs coordination, and Albert was happy to take on this role, with his more than 20 years’ experience in the (online) art trade.

Albert uses his artistic eye to monitor the quality of the art auctions, although always in consultation with fellow auctioneers and by maintaining relationships with suppliers and buyers. With a focus on international expansion, Albert expects to offer Catawiki visitors even more exclusive works.

André Haak

He still has a vivid mental picture of it: the steam locomotive that passed him by as a small boy at an unguarded level crossing. From then on he was hooked on trains. He soon graduated from his very first Lego train to his first model train at home, and from there he continually expanded his collection at trade fairs and online. Andre Haak has seen so many model trains over the years in this way that they no longer hold any secrets for him.

It makes him the ideal auctioneer for model train auctions; he is expert at determining the value and version of each of the trains. In addition well-known brands like Fleischmann and Märklin, Andre knows that there is a lot of enthusiasm among collectors for classic, tin models and exclusive releases. With Andre at the controls, both enthusiasts and collectors are well catered for at his auctions.

Σπάνιες παρτίδες

Anita Helmy

Modern art is the common theme running through Anita Helmy’s life. At the age of 12, a Dalí exhibition made a deep impression on her, after which she went to the Saturday academy for art education. Art Academy followed, but Anita went her own way during the financial crisis in the early 80s. Along with a few fellow artists, she opened a gallery with exhibitions at home and abroad. They wanted to use this as a springboard to bring art back into the spotlight. Since then she has continued to view and create art.

With so much knowledge of art, it has become an almost tangible part of Anita. In assessing lots for the Catawiki art auction, she sometimes goes by her gut instinct. Because while a big name like Escher is always nice, the work of an unknown artist can also be interesting. Anita also maintains good relationships with her suppliers. She provides varied auctions every week, with lots that excite both collectors and enthusiasts.

Swarovski crystal figurines have inspired imagination for years. Swarovksi has created a beautiful figurine of just about everything you could dream up. Annemarie van Orsouw was immediately captivated when she saw several figurines in a display case years ago. You can see the craftsmanship in the way the light catches the skilfully cut glass. Annemarie immediately began collecting the figurines, and when she had duplicates of some pieces, she sold them for a good price. She financed the rest of her collection with the profits, and her trade in Swarovski figurines was born.

On Saturdays, the young Bart Vink worked in his father’s music shop. The money he earned there was immediately spent on quality speakers and a nice power amp, which he used to play his records and cassette tapes. He later joined the shop with his brother and, in addition to Bang & Olufsen, concentrated mainly on other high-quality Hi-Fi brands such as Denon, Onkyo, Marantz, Thorens, Dual, and many more. This provided Bart with vast experience in the Hi-Fi world and allowed him to build a large network, from which he is still reaping the benefits.

According to Bart, Hi-Fis from the 70s, 80s and 90s still deliver superior quality and guarantee many hours of listening pleasure. Although Bart would like to come across more Bang & Olufsen, he is always happy to see a nice Sansui amplifier, a Thorens turntable or tape decks by Revox or Akai. He takes particular care that his auctions are all about quality. That’s what he expects from his suppliers, with whom he maintains strong ties. Bart supplies a varied selection every week, for the serious collector and the Hi-Fi hobbyist.

Σπάνιες παρτίδες

Christine Barrat

Christine Barrat is like a modern day Indiana Jones. Always looking for adventure, and hunting for new treasures and experiences throughout Europe and Asia. Not surprising, given her childhood surrounded by collectors and artistic family members. They brought the craziest things home that they acquired during their travels, from mummified cats to strange stones. As a 10-year-old girl, she spent hours examining the stones under a microscope with her brother, who has become a renowned geochemist. Christine took the artistic route and paid for her studies by selling gems and antiques that she’d found at markets. She used these skills to train to become a Doctor of Arts and Culture. She crossed all of Europe and much of the world for her work developing art programmes. She also set up her own jewellery business and gave lessons in art. Now she uses the network and life experience that she has built up as a Catawiki auctioneer.

Christine thinks that the story behind an object is what really matters: lovely works of art and jewels become even more beautiful. She places a great deal of importance on tracing the background of her auction items, and regularly approaches the artists herself. It is this care and attention to detail that make her auctions so special.

Σπάνιες παρτίδες

Daan Hartevelt

Every postage stamp tells a story. When was it made, where did it come from, what type of post was it on and what route did it travel? Daan Hartevelt is fascinated by all these questions. As a boy, he really enjoyed finding the answers. It didn’t take Daan long to start collecting, and he soon found himself attending stamp fairs. He viewed thousands of stamps, made contact with traders... and sometimes made bad purchases. However, we learn by making mistakes. These experiences, his collection and his work in a reputable stamp shop have given him unrivalled knowledge of postage stamps.

Daan now uses this knowledge at Catawiki, where he is an auctioneer for the Dutch postage stamp auction. He uses scanned images to assess the lots on offer. And if he has any doubts about the condition of the stamp? Then only a certificate of authenticity will do. Fortunately, he has good relationships with his suppliers. As a result, his weekly auctions are highly varied, filled with interesting collections and exclusive postage stamps.

I flew all over the world for my game collection.

  • Owned her own video games shop for years
  • Has one of the largest Nintendo collections in the Netherlands
  • International network
Diana  van der Valk

One of Diana van der Valk’s first memories is of playing with the Game & Watch Donkey Kong video game that was a present from her aunt. She was immediately hooked and saved money from all sorts of Saturday jobs in order to buy more games. Since then, she has collected anything to do with computer games, and she has built up one of the largest Nintendo collections in the Netherlands. Trading is in Diana’s blood, which came in handy for her hobby. She completed her collection with the help of fairs across the globe and various visits to the US and Akihabara, the Japanese gaming mecca. This resulted in an enormous network, which she can always rely on.

Before starting as a computer and video games auctioneer at Catawiki, Diana had her own games shop for more than 10 years, where she bought and sold games. She has handled literally thousands of video games. This has provided her with a wealth of knowledge, experience and social development. Diana always finds it exciting to see new arrivals in her mailbox. So make sure to rummage through your attic to see what’s still there. You never know what it’s worth now!

Like many others, Dirk-Jan began reading comics as a child. He began with Donald Duck and Spike & Suzy. But after picking up another series from the comic book store, he became hooked on collecting. He had a cupboard full of comics in no time at all. He also attended fairs and developed an eye for the more popular comics, awaking his dealer instincts. Dirk-Jan ended up working at the major fairs himself, and helped at the stand of a large comic strip specialist. As a result, he acquired tremendous knowledge about various comics and their value. In later years, he was also involved in organising comic strip fairs.

Dirk-Jan can now be found at the Catawiki digital comic strip fair. With his experience, he can quickly assess the lots that arrive; he pays particular attention to how interesting they are for comic strip lovers and collectors and their value. Antiquarian and sought-after comics that are no longer easy to find are especially attractive to comic aficionados, and can be a good way to start a collection.

Erik van den Berg

After working in a hotel for years, Erik van den Berg decided he wanted to be his own boss. He found the freedom he’d always wanted in the antiques trade. Antiques were always a hobby and, inspired by his neighbour, he transformed it into his profession. After starting out small in a shared shop, Erik gradually got a feel for the profession and opened his own shop. He learned from his good and bad purchases and used all his senses to assess antiques. Over 20 years later, he has every reason to claim to be an expert at assessing antiques.

This has come in handy for Erik as an auctioneer. Thanks to his experience, he can also use photographs to get a good impression of the huge variety of items that come his way. Contact with the seller is also an important aspect. For example, to definitively determine from what material an item is made. An antique’s value is not always the deciding factor for Erik. He really loves including antiques that show a lot of love and craftsmanship in his auction.

All of my experience comes together harmoniously in my work as an auctioneer.

  • Worked for more than 30 years in the musical instrument industry
  • Experience in the purchase, sale and marketing of musical instruments
  • Passion for guitars

Frans van Ingen knows almost everything there is to know about musical instruments. He also worked as a salesman and marketer for almost 30 years with one of the largest musical instrument chains in the Netherlands. He has seen almost every side of the industry, which has given him a wealth of experience. And of course his network is no small feat: name a place and Frans could probably indentify the most prominent seller there.

As an auctioneer, Frans brings all that knowledge together harmoniously. He started to gain an eye for instruments at the age of six, when he held his first guitar. From a photograph, he can see immediately if the original bridge is there, whether the logo is correct and whether that is the right pickguard for that model. Frans always manages to put together a great auction using his knowledge and social skills. And if he’s looking for a special selection? Then he calls up his old customers. Together they rummage around the storeroom in search of the perfect addition to his Catawiki auction.

Frederik  Jamees

As a teenager, Frederik Jamees was fascinated by jukeboxes from the 50s. At first it was the music, but later the craftsmanship in them also caught his eye. As far as he was concerned, the boring 80s machines were no match. He soon became interested in other antique machines, such as slot machines from the twenties (one-armed bandits), Coca Cola vending machines and gramophones. But actually, any devices that are at least partially mechanical and in working order will pique his interest. Frederik attended fairs and auction houses around the world for his collection, passionately expanding it. This provided him with a large network, plenty of knowledge about human nature and a wealth of information about machines.

As an auctioneer, Frederik has seen a lot of machines. So he knows how important it is to establish whether a machine is still in its original condition, which has a significant impact on the price. Frederik also spends a lot of time working on how the lots he is offered are presented, and tries to help both sellers and buyers where he can. Personally, he would love to see a rare Mills Dewey Floor Machine from the early 1900s, but a Watling ‘Bird of Paradise’ slot machine or a Rock-Ola commando wouldn’t go amiss either.

Ger van Oers describes himself as a real ‘magpie child’. Ever since he was a child, he would collect everything that was not nailed down. And once the collection was complete? He would simply start collecting something else. Only his pen collection has stood the test of time. All that collecting and selling gave Ger a real instinct for trading. He had a flourishing online pen business for years and later opened his own antiques and curio shop.

Pens remain close to Ger’s heart. So he is the ideal auctioneer for the pens & writing instruments auction, where there are plenty of interesting lots on offer. Montblanc fountain pens are especially desirable. The limited edition fountain pens from the 80s and 90s generate enthusiastic bids, and German Pelikan fountain pens also do well. Ger maintains close relationships with his sellers in the relatively small world of pens and, as a result, puts together a great auction every week.

  • A passion for Lego for over 30 years
  • Visits international Lego fairs
  • Committed to good relationships with buyers and sellers
Gerben van IJken

An entire city was built in Gerben van Ijken’s childhood home. A Lego city, of course, built from dozens of sets that he received as a child. He was quite fascinated by the multifunctional Lego blocks. And once he had assembled everything following the manual’s instructions? It was demolished and combined with other sets to build his own creations. Lego has always been a passion for Gerben, and he has followed its fortunes closely, including attending international fairs. His ultimate dream was a job where he could work with Lego... and now his fantasy is a reality!

Gerben loves every minute of his job as an auctioneer. Sets from the 50s and 60s can still be combined with modern sets, which makes the market very lively. Lego is also a good investment because the collection changes every two years and sets are never re-released. Auctions that include unique sets, like the limited edition Millennium Falcon, are always very exciting! Gerben particularly enjoys being able to make so many people happy at his Lego auction. After all, that’s what Lego is for!

Guido Mascini’s love of good wine started when he opened his own restaurant. Many wine importers approached him and introduced him to a wide range of quality wines. He was really fascinated by the differences in the various wines, both when it came to taste and price. He wanted to know more! After various wine courses and visits to wine chateaus in Europe and Africa, Guido could call himself a true connoisseur. After selling his restaurant he worked at various auction houses. In addition to being an auctioneer, he also has a coordinating role for the wine, port and whiskey auctions at Catawiki.

Guido Mascini is responsible for the organisational aspects and, together with the auctioneers, is always looking for any opportunities for new or themed auctions. He relies on the expertise of the auctioneers to present a tasteful selection of wines each week. He himself is a huge fan of a Kanonkop ‘Paul Sauer’, but a rare whiskey or a good wine from 2010 – a stunning year for wine – is also welcome at one of his auctions.

Cartographic prints are not just decorative, they are also a lasting investment.

  • Worked as geographic information officer with the Dutch Ministry of Defence
  • Boasts over 17 years' experience
  • Set up a flourishing cartographic business
Harald Fredriks

A wonderful decoration, a memento of your genealogical origins or a lasting investment. There are plenty of good reasons to buy an antique map or city plan. Harald Fredriks knows all about this, which is why, as both auctioneer and aficionado, he puts together wonderful cartographic auctions.

Harald discovered his passion during his time at the Ministry of Defence. As a ‘geographic information officer’, he had to analyse and map (potential) mission areas using not just satellite images but often recent or, if not available, outdated maps. That was enough to pique his interest and, after working in the army for almost ten years, he established a flourishing antiquarian cartographic shop. Maps, city plans, topographical prints and cityscapes: Harald has handled them all.

Auctioneering fits him like a glove. He knows most antiquarians in the relatively small cartographic world personally. Many special maps are put up for auction every week. Harald would most like to see rare maps from the era of the Dutch United East India Company (VOC), with secret trade routes. Sadly the chance of this happening is quite small given how rare such maps are. He also likes to include more ‘ordinary’ cartographic charts in his auctions, to ensure buyers have a varied and attractive selection to choose from.

Precious gems have always held an irresistible attraction for Iris Hendriks. She used to extract them from rocks herself using a hammer and chisel. As an amateur jeweller, she also made her own jewellery for years. As a trader, she saw all sorts of curios about which she always wanted to know the details. She has seen or traded just about everything that has precious gems on it.

Designer jewellery, gold necklaces and grandmother’s old brooches: according to Hendriks, anything that could be called jewellery is put up for the Catawiki jewellery auction. In Hendriks’ experience, on closer inspection Bvlgari jewellery in particular sometimes turns out to actually be from a Chinese factory. Iris knows better than most what markings and hidden features to look for. Using her experience, she usually sees quickly if it is from a factory or hand-made.

  • Is a collector himself

Jacques is so busy with comic books that only the characters themselves are more involved. As a child, he read Donald Duck, Tintin and Spirou, but his interest was really piqued when the first comic book shop opened in Ghent. That was where Jacques became acquainted with more expensive comics, which he was desperate to collect. He has now been collecting comics and curios for more than 40 years. He has built up an international network by visiting a number of European conventions for his hobby.

He has also been involved in organising conventions, distributing weekly comics and working on various exhibitions and reference books for comics. As an auctioneer, Jacques has a keen eye for beautiful lots. The condition of the objects on offer is of the utmost importance for Jacques. This is what makes lots stand out from the crowd, especially for first editions and comic curios. And if there is doubt about a particular illustration or some other issue, a quick check of his own collection is often enough to provide the definitive answer.

Patrick van Karsen inherited his love of antiques from his parents. He started collecting antiques as a teenager and attended all the major auctions in Europe. He then developed his passion for general Dutch antiques and colonial silver from the 17th and 18th centuries.

He has assessed thousands of pieces as an appraiser at various auction houses. He was also eager to soak up the knowledge of the many collectors with whom he came into contact.

Knowledge that Patrick can completely rely on when appraising gold and silver. He has seen and learned to recognise problem items such as restorations, fakes and assembled objects. They say that you have to hold silver to know its worth. However, Patrick believes that assessing items using high resolution photographs also has its advantages. You often notice details and damage more quickly. And with the internet always on hand for research, he can act quickly.

German coins are amongst the most popular in the world. The great diversity, rich history and good condition make them some of the most enjoyable coins to collect. Catawiki therefore needs a real expert and connoisseur to take care of these auction lots. And Philipp Rott is the man! He has been surrounded by antique coins all his life. From a young age, he would visit clubs with his father where coins were compared and traded. It did not take long before collecting became his passion too. In addition to studying cultural history and archaeology at university, Philipp started his own trade in antique German and Russian coins. He has come across thousands of coins and has also started collecting medals.

The challenge for Philipp is to assess a wide range of coins based on photographs. His experience and good relationships with the sellers are his biggest assets here. He always consults with other experts to verify authenticity and assess the price. As an auctioneer, Philipp most likes to see old German gold coins, but he also enjoys including coins that are especially fun to collect in his auctions.

While his peers were all buying mopeds, Sander Houdel purchased his first Volkswagen Beetle at the age of 14. He grew up with a love of classic cars. The Beetle is still parked proudly in Sander’s garage, and has since been joined by four other classic cars. Although, since buying it, Houdel has stripped it down to the last bolt and put it back together with the utmost precision. It’s just not possible to do this with new cars any more and that is precisely what attracts him to classic cars.

Sander does not want to miss a thing. That is why he makes annual visits to classic car fairs both at home and abroad. Blogs and magazines keep him up to date with the latest classic car news and trends. As an auctioneer, a beautiful Ferrari or an original Porsche 911 sets his heart racing. He mainly focuses on the whole picture - if the car has a beautiful paint job or if the details are correct. Of course, there has to be a check under the bonnet. Sander’s vast experience and passion mean he places beautiful lots on Catawiki every week.

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.”

Wim van Stormbroek regularly found arrowheads and flints as a small boy. It’s what happens when you live on the site of an ancient Stone Age settlement. Mesmerised, he would watch excavations and it didn’t take long for him to have a go himself. He conducted several excavations, where he dug up his own artefacts. Once he set up his own artefacts gallery, he handled many more discoveries; from a Roman chair to a simple fibula. In addition to his gallery, Wim also appraised professional archaeological finds in the art and antiques TV programme Schatgraven. During twenty years in this role, Wim saw and sold thousands of pieces, giving him vast expertise in the field and an invaluable network.

Wim now uses his expertise for Catawiki. Everything shows up at his archaeological and artefacts auction; from Neolithic flints to Egyptian sarcophagus masks. He believes it is important that the listed items are authentic. His experience as a dealer and appraiser come in handy here. He can often tell within a few seconds whether an object is interesting enough for his auction.

Zsuzsa Vermesi

With her tremendous enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge, Zsuzsa Vermesi began working towards becoming an auctioneer shortly after finishing her studies. Zsuzsa has already earned her reputation in the art world. With a Master’s in art history, internships with the Arts & Antiques Group (AAG) auction house and managing the collection of an international bank, she knows what she is talking about.

Auctioneering fits her like a glove. In addition to established names like Shepard Fairey and Zhang Xiaogang, she also likes to give lesser known talents a chance. Of course, not without first carrying out the necessary research and casting a critical eye over the work. This ensures she always upholds the auction’s high level of quality.

As an auctioneer, Zsuzsa learned how important it is to establish good relationships with sellers. Catawiki’s online focus is a big advantage because she can act quickly and communicate easily. This allows Zsuzsa to link with a growing number of artists and suppliers in order to put together a high quality and surprising auction every week.
