About Us

Founded in 1975 by Jacques Fijnaut and his partner Henk van der Heijden the company initially focused on high quality Art and Antiques from the 17th century like renaissance furniture, pewter and Old Master paintings. Over time, focus shifted to the 18th century with our collection of Dutch silver as a central component. Another speciality of the gallery is the collection of Amsterdam & the Hague School paintings, and Asian Ceramics. The gallery, which can be visited by appointment, reflects the diversity of our collection. You will find furniture, Bronzes, Objet d’Arts and colonial antiques, amongst a wide range of post impressionist paintings, and modern abstract art from the 1950’s and ceramics.

We are also available for valuations and collection advice.  Please contact us for details and prices.

Who we are

Jacques Fijnaut

Director

Jacques Fijnaut (1942) considers himself a creative decorator. He is one of the few people who successfully combines his passion for Art and Antiques with the decorative element of the objects. He always envisions how an object would work in an interior, and that helps him to find the perfect items for his clients.
