What are you taking to TEFAF?
In addition we have several highlights from the Morpurgo collection – compiled by four successive generations of a renowned Amsterdam dynasty in the antiques trade.
A pair of polychrome Delftware boys riding lions from c.1775 comes from the Nijstad collection, each measuring approximately 8in (20.5cm) high, priced at a five-figure sum. Among the long-treasured objects in the Morpurgo collection, this blue and white plaque is attributed to Holland’s most renowned painter of 17th century Delft faience. Measuring 10½in (27cm) high, it carries a low six-figure price.
Are you optimistic about TEFAF 2017?
I’m sure this year will be as strong as ever. We have interest in our collections already, including from abroad, and we know certain clients will be turning up. It helps when you have a strong collection which you can promote in advance.
