Last day of #tefaf2019! One of the highlights has been a #portrait of Sir Thomas Dallison by Paul van Somer (c.1577-1622), painted c.1620. Van Somer was a Flemish painter who worked at the court of James I of England. #portraits#oldmasters#tefaf#england#17thcentury#jamesIofengland#paulvansomer#painting#court#artandantiques#antiques#antiquefair#berausantiques

A coach #watch from c. 1650, #Paris at #tefaf2019. With a one-day duration mechanism, watches like these (which are much larger than pocket watches of a similar design) allowed the wealthy to keep track of time and the progress of their journey as the horse-driven coaches would take them, often over several days, on muddy routes. #tefaf#france#17thcentury#antiquewatch#antique#antiques#clocks#renaissance#time#timekeeping#artdealer#berausantiques

Another extraordinary object at #TEFAF2019, an #empire gilt bronze centre piece
Another extraordinary object at #TEFAF2019, an #empire gilt bronze centre piece with nine-light #candelabrum, by the famous Pierre-Philippe Thomire (1732-1843), #Paris, c. 1810-1815. Imagine this, with candles, as the only source of light on your dinner table for a very special occasion! :)) #tefaf#candelabra#candles#candlelightdinner#antiques#antique#French#19thcentury#thomire#empirestyle#giltbronze#berausantiques

Great to be at #tefaf2019! A #royal child #carriage for the #Spanish#court, early 18th century. Possibly made for the future Charles III (1716-1788). Hardly a must-have in anyone’s house, but a truly exceptional piece. @guillaume.leage#tefaf#antiques#spain#charlesIII#18thcentury#artfair#antique#maastricht#berausantiques

#Rembrandt or no Rembrandt? Sold at  #Christies for £137,000 in 2016 to an #Amst
#Rembrandt or no Rembrandt? Sold at #Christies for £137,000 in 2016 to an #Amsterdam art dealer Jan Six, this #portrait of a young man is now attributed to Rembrandt himself, from circa 1634, at least according to the dealer, based on some scientific research, and backed by some prominent connoisseurs, and thus potentially worth millions. Not everyone is convinced though. I had a pleasure of seeing the painting myself and, regardless of who painted it, it is a striking high-quality portrait. I love how one can see the subtle delineation on the sitter’s hair as he presumably wore a hat and just took it off!!! #oldmasters#oldmaster#dutch#dutchgoldenage#portraiture#portraitpainting#portraitpaintings#17thcentury#holland#antique#berausantiques

#Leather panel, from 1649, #Hague, from an impressive #exhibition at @rijksmuseum on #Dutch design from the age of Rembrandt! Exhibition runs until 16 September so just one more week to go! #Kwab style, characterized by fluid and almost hallucinatory shapes and mystical creatures, was a #17thcentury Dutch #design, highly influential across Europe. How many #monsters can you count on this panel? #holland#dutchgoldenage#amsterdam#antiques#antique#arthistory#historyofart#howmany#antiquefurniture#museum#museumcollection#berausantiques

An #antique#chest from our collection, late #15thcentury to #16thcentury, north-west #European. Wood and wrought #iron. Most likely used to store documents and valuables in house, as opposed for transport, in order to protect them from fire, that was quite a frequent occurrence at the time. #antiquechest#antiquechests#coffre#antiques,#antique#gothic,#antiquesforsale#medieval#antiquefurniture#berausantiques.

KWAB - Stunning new #exhibition at @rijksmuseum on #Dutch design from the age of Rembrandt! Kwab style, characterized by fluid and almost hallucinatory shapes and mystical creatures, was a #17thcentury Dutch #design, highly influential across Europe. At the exhibition, the juxtaposition of #kwab style and a modern black-and-white setting is a brave choice that certainly paid off. Exhibition runs until 16 September. #holland#dutchgoldenage#amsterdam#antiques#antique#arthistory#historyofart#antiquefurniture#museum#museumcollection#berausantiques

#portrait of a #girl, by #Verspronck, 1641. One of the most iconic #portraits of #Dutch#GoldenAge, yet hidden in an unassuming small room of @rijksmuseum. Her clothes and posture are much like of an adult lady, as typical for the period. #Holland#DutchMasters#oldMasters#antiques#paintings#portraitpainting#arthistory#historyofart#17thcentury#amsterdam#berausantiques

Gilt embossed #leather panel, #Dutch, 1650-1700, from my last visit to the #MetM
Gilt embossed #leather panel, #Dutch, 1650-1700, from my last visit to the #MetMuseum. The Dutch took over the Spanish tradition of painted leather panels for decorating (and insulating) walls, and improved on it by using wooden or copper molds to make a relief pattern in the leather. Today these essentially #wallpapers of #17thcentury can look lavishly striking on your own wall. #antique#antiques#leatherpanel#wallhangings#Holland#netherlands#goldenage#embossedleather#themet#museum#newyork#gold#paintedleather#pattern#wallpaper#goudleer#goudeneeuw#berausantiques

A hidden gem in the heart of #Amsterdam,#museum#VanLoon. Gorgeous #17thcentury#house, on the #canal, with many period furnishings, and a stunning garden. Once home to a famous #Dutch painter, Ferdinand Bol, today a museum and home to Van Loon family. You get a real sense of daily life in 17th century #Holland.#Antiques#antiqueinteriors#antiquefurniture#Dutchgoldenage#interiors#mansion#oldhouse#bed#linen#wallpaper#berausantiques
