On loan to the Museum Prinsenhof in Delft straight from the permanent collection of the Rijksmuseum.
The Bed of State fence Baluster of Amalia van Solms (1602-1675), Godmother of the House of Orange, gifted to her by the VOC.

We are very proud, because we discovered this piece, which was purchased by the Rijksmuseum with help of a generous gift.

In about 1638, Amalia van Solms, who was very influential in promoting ‘oriental’ crafts in the Netherlands, expressed her wish to the VOC for a Japanese lacquered balustrade she intended to replace the existing gilded balustrade in her bedroom in her residence in Het Stadhouderlijk Kwartier in Het Binnenhof in The Hague. The Amsterdam Chamber of the VOC duly ordered in Japan an exorbitant black-and-gold-lacquered balustrade in Japan and presented it to Amalia van Solms in 1641. Instead of in Het Stadhouderlijk Kwartier, the balustrade was eventually installed in Amalia’s bedroom in the recently finished palace Huis ten Bosch in 1647.

No illustrations of the balustrade survived, and only single balusters, some cut length-wise, reappeared incorporated in a secrétaire, a side cabinet and a piano. Most likely, the parts were spread and sold within furniture-makers and restorers circles in France, used, taken apart or even polished, and all are lost in time.

Go and see it in the exhibition ‘Amalia. Ambition and Allure’ from 16 September 2022 - 8 January 2023.

Two Japanese export lacquer knife urns for the American market, an Indian buffalo leather shield lacquered in Japan at the end of the 17th century, and The Van Mekeren Cabinet.

What more could one wish for?

Ok fair enough. Maybe a safer place for the knife urns, so you don’t have to risk dying by getting your knives.

A very rare ‘Surinam Nemelc Family’ Plantation Glass from our collection for sale.

With a fine engraving of a plantation house and coffee shrubs with a text reading: Het.Welvaaren.Van.De.Plantagie.Saxen (the prosperity of the Plantation Saxen). A twenty-two centimeter high English or Dutch lead glass, with Dutch wheel-engraving, dating from circa 1750.


This glass shows that there was a German presence in Surinam, of which the scale is unknown to many.
Without doubt, the most famous German heading for Surinam must be Frankfurter Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717), the artist depicting the tropical flora and fauna. The flourishing trade in coffee of the 18th century got the German companies focused on Surinam. For instance, Georg Heinrich Sieveking, a Hamburger merchant, imported coffee and cotton from Surinam. In the spring of 1782, he sent a ship to Surinam under Captain Rohlap, with 8.000 Deutschmark, which returned the same year with coffee, sugar, and cotton. Estimated upon arrival: 125.000 Deutschmark. This sparked more interest in Surinam by the Germans.

‘Saxen’ was a plantation in Surinam along the Tapoeripa creek, spanning over 500 akkers (c. 225 acres) in 1819, 300 akkers in 1827, and deserted in 1830. It was also a German-owned plantation and produced cotton and coffee. The earliest mention of an owner is J.G. Clemen, the name-giver of the Surinam family Nemelc, simply turning around his own name and giving it to his 'belongings'.

Did you know that we’re not that old fashioned?!

We probably have the biggest collection of drawings and paintings by famous contemporary Dutch sculptor Arthur Spronken (1930-2018)! And quite some sculptures too.

Arthur was a good friend of Guus, and as every artist, he never had a dime to spare. He couldn’t buy materials to paint next to his sculpting, so Guus went far and wide hunting antique frames. He provided these and the needed materials to Arthur. In return, Guus got the best works to sell, so he could earn a little and finance new materials, so Arthur could paint, as well as sculpt.

You won’t find them on the website, so you better visit our Maastricht gallery by appointment or during Tefaf.

Oh Mother Russia, stop your idiotic war and bring back home your boys… and stop killing Ukrainians.

Depicted here is the Russian army in better condition, on a triptych woodblock print by Yoshikazu, titled ‘Picture of the Landing of Foreigners of the Five Nations in Yokohama’, Gokakoku ijin Yokohama jõriku no zu, published by Enshũya Hikobei in 1861.

Along the Yokohama waterfront, known to the European residents as the Bund, are depicted soldiers and civilians of the five treaty nations. Each country is marked with a flag and a label identifying the country in Japanese. In the foreground two Chinese, whose presence as compradors was vital to commerce in Yokohama.

Yoshikazu’s print is one of the first to depict military troops of the Five Nations in Yokohama. This scene is clearly an imaginative fabrication since mutual suspicion and competitive interests would have prevented a friendly assembly of military units from the Western treaty nations to have taken place in Yokohama in 1861. The competition in Yokohama for the Japanese trade was fierce.

This is the right panel of the triptych, depicting the Russian delegation in the newly opened Japanese port-city.
Prints like these were sold to Japanese tourists, or European visitors.

For sale, this Japanese Namban lacquer cabinet for the European market, also known as a comptoir or vargueno, dating from the Momoyama period, around the year 1600.

Made from wood, black lacquered and decorated with gold and inlays of mother-of-pearl, brass mounts and carrying handles, the fall front is lacking. Being a rare pictorial-style Namban cabinet, the top is decorated in an unusual scene of a tiger attacking deer near a house and garden. Some of the earliest Namban wares produced for the Portuguese were fall-front cabinets or desks. According to Impey and Jörg although poorly documented, "the Portuguese trade in these objects was clearly extensive" (Impey & Jörg, ibid., p. 124). Often the front is missing since it serves well as a tabletop…

Coffer and cabinets, decorated in lacquer, gold and mother-of-pearl, were produced by the Japanese specifically for export to the West. The name Namban was given by the Japanese to Europeans and other 'Southern barbarians'.
These export products developed in response to the Portuguese contact with Japan in the second half of the sixteenth century. They were produced until the end of their presence in Japan in 1639 (Oliver Impey & Christiaan Jörg, Japanese export lacquer 1580-1850, Amsterdam, 2005, p. 78). The earliest namban wares are decorated with gold floral motifs, slivers of thin metal and mother-of-pearl inlay set in a mosaic pattern against a black lacquer ground. The designs and techniques executed by Kyoto artisans represent a fusion of Chinese, Korean, Japanese and European tastes.
