Weekly Auctions of Exceptional Items
Van Sabben Auctions
Information about this Auction house: Mr. Piet van Sabben has organised poster auctions in The Netherlands since 1991 under the name: "Van Sabben Poster Auctions". These are usually held twice a year. Viewing of posters is possible for a few weeks preceding each auction. Exclusively Posters: Unlike most other auction houses who may include posters from time to time, Van Sabben Poster Auctions are dedicated exclusively to the auction of national (Dutch) and international posters, with the occasional addition of related books and enamel advertising signs and similar artefacts. Auction catalogue: Before each auction a fully colour illustrated catalogue is published. These catalogues are acknowledged by collectors worldwide as being an important reference document. In addition to colour photographs of each item to be auctioned each contains an indexed name of artist and headword, extensive bibliography and the result list of the previous auction. This auction house is proud of the fact that many national and international museums, libraries and other institutions regularly order these catalogues for their own archives. Internet: -Via the extensive web site: : www.vansabbenauctions.nl much information is given to poster lovers. For example: the result list and aftersales of unsold posters are on the site after the auction. You also find privat poster collections for sale. Recently they have opened their ‘Gallery’ at the Internet, where vintage posters can be purchased throughout the year. -Van Sabben Poster Auctions puts much effort into introducing the appeal of poster collecting to a wider audience around the world. As part of this effort they currently hold, at various times throughout the year, auctions via the internet. Posters offered in these auctions are (still) relatively cheap to purchase as they are predominantly by young, as yet ‘undiscovered’ designers. VSPA believe they offer a sound investment for the future and a good basis for starting a poster collection. New auction magazine: Van Sabben Poster Auctions is also involved in a new specialist auction publication named: ‘Het Veilingtijdschrift’, (‘The Auction Magazine’). Edited by Mr. A.K.J. van der Gulik it is printed in Dutch, but also contains an English summary. It’s contents include regular articles on recently held auctions, as well as a listing of all forthcoming auctions and addresses of most Dutch and International auction houses. This auction magazine is available in most leading bookshops since 22 of October 1999. Additional services: In addition to their auctions, they are also able to offer their clients the following services: assisting in acquiring specific posters, poster restoration, valuations and advice in starting a collection. New owner: Although a change in ownership of the company has recently taken place, Mr. Udo Boersma, the new owner, has retained the original company name of "Van Sabben Poster Auctions".
