Corporate collections have been part of a company's good tone for decades. The aim of a corporate collection should be to reflect the "spirit" of the company, to shape its image and to create a positive working atmosphere. However, very few companies sustainably pursue a clear collection strategy. The result is collections of divergent artworks and objects.
As the market leader in the German art market in the field of international marketing of corporate collections, VAN HAM can look back on many years of experience in dealing with significant and extensive corporate collections. These present complex challenges and require expert support, including a tailor-made marketing concept.

VAN HAM, like no other German auction house, can point to exceptionally extensive experience in dealing with significant and extensive collections that pose complex demands and require expert care. Crucial is the broad competence, as most collections are rather heterogeneous. As a generalist, VAN HAM offers different experts for different periods and genres, complemented by an extensive network of contacts to museums, art historians, provenance researchers and restorers. Collections usually consist of high-caliber individual pieces to works that usually serve more of a decorative purpose. Thus, it is important to find a partner who offers a total package and takes care of the decorative pieces in addition to the top marketable works.
VAN HAM recognizes the potential of each individual work of art for you! Like no other auction house, VAN HAM can respond to the uniqueness of your collection and thus achieve a maximum result for you. VAN HAM offers a differentiated and customized marketing concept to present each object in the best possible way. Only in this way can each work reach its appropriate target group. The top works are offered in the classic LIVE auctions, works up to approx. 5,000 Euros are sold in an ONLINE ONLY auction. The classical presence auctions in the hall with a printed catalog, the accompanying international online media and a high-quality preview are always the first choice for top works.
VAN HAM owns the largest art depot of an auction house in Germany. Our logistics department, accompanied by our experts, will be happy to coordinate a takeover of the objects. In this case, all works can already be personally logged upon collection on site. Alternatively, the takeover protocols can be coordinated with your employees in our depot. We guarantee you an optimal, safe and professional storage in our rooms, which includes the insurance of the works. After the reconciliation of the transfer protocols, the cataloging of the works follows, which is of course also possible in existing lists while retaining their inventory numbers.
VAN HAM has spacious exhibition rooms of museum quality, where both the previews and the auctions take place. Both events are public and international events. They create an incomparable atmosphere in which people like to bid and as a result top prices are achieved. A comprehensive press, marketing and event concept ultimately guarantees the best results and international success.
