Collectors fair in Utrecht
17 April 2020
For years we have been visiting the famous annual collectors' market in Utrecht. Formerly as an exhibitor, nowadays to maintain contacts with the trade and other collectors. This would also be the case today, were it not for the corona that spoils everything. The fair has been cancelled of course. For the first time in years, this means no trouvailles from this huge market. Usually they are not shocking things that you find, but also ordinary objects without art value can be worthwhile for history. Often those simple or mundane things from one, two or three generations back are now incredibly rare. And it is precisely at this fair that objects that you do not expect at all appear. Too bad this opportunity for a fine treasure hunt now passes.
