at VAN HAM
We will gladly give you free and non-committal oral estimations for your objects, which you may bring onto our premises during our business hours.
Should you be unable to come personally, we will gladly mail you an estimate based upon photographs which you kindly will send to us along with additional information on size, signatures, condition, etc.
For larger collections, our experts will also visit you at home, if you wish.
Contact one of our specialists to discuss the best conditions for selling your property. We will work with you to create an offer specific to your need and interests. Should your property remain unsold, you will incur no fees for handling or insurance.
In accordance with § 26 of the German Copyright Law / UrhG the consigner is legally obligated to pay droit de suite (artists’ resale rights) on all original works of art as well as original photographic works, whose authors are not dead or did not decease 70 years before the end of the legal year of purchase. The consignor is currently required to contribute 1% of the hammer price plus statutory VAT, if applicable, for this purpose and is therefore released from all personal obligations to pay the droit de suite.
The costs for colour illustrations are depending upon size (from € 50 up to € 600).

We will procure favourably-priced restoration services for you, which appear recommendable for sales.
