This Is Our  Story

We are established at a few minutes from “Rijksmuseum” (National Museum of Art), the Van Gogh Museum and the famous “Concertgebouw”. We have been dealing in antiques since 1969 (and loving it). The trade of course changed in those years, first lots of early English oak and 15th -17th C. bronze candlesticks and chandeliers, since 1990 Becker Antiques V.O.F. specialises in early Chinese works of art and furniture.

Our main field covers ceramics – pottery funerary figures (dated from the Han through the Ming dynasties), Buddhist sculptures and other Chinese works of art. Our other sections are Asian works of art – concerns objects from Japan and South East Asian countries including bronze, stone and wooden sculptures, Chinese furniture from the Qing Dynasty and of course occasional other items.
