Small, cozy and open minded Amsterdam based company. With over 20 years of experience in arts and antiques trade, one of the main specialties is antique scientific instruments. Formerly worked in association with Jaap Mennink, were I have learned to use all senses to be active in the trade. An eclectic collection of scientific- and nautical instruments, natural history artifacts and collectors items is offered. Travelling extensively around the globe with a skilled and critical eye, I try to form a diverse collection of objects with fundamental keywords as: authentic, originality, quality and rarity. When necessarily, intensive desk- and field research will be applied or the vision of a colleague will be consulted. The comprehensive library is on hands and can be consulted by appointment.
Bert Kraker is also consultant for several international collectors and auction houses. Always interested in purchasing good quality (scientific) items. Valuations and expertise.
