Heeren van Bronckhorst: jeweller and antiques shop in Gelderland

Heeren van Bronckhorst is established in Bronkhorst, the smallest town in the Netherlands. Having taken part in PAN Amsterdam and ArtFair in 's-Hertogenbosch, Heeren van Bronckhorst is also taking part in art fairs such as Kunst en Antiekweekend Naarden-Vesting and ArtBreda.

Valuations in the Netherlands and abroad

Have you always wanted to know the value of that necklace you inherited or that painting you bought at a jumble sale that one time? Evert is a qualified valuer of art, antiques and inventories in the Netherlands and abroad. His work has already taken him to Belgium, Germany, the UK, France, Russia, the United States, and of course, all over the Netherlands. His love for the trade is plain to see in his methods. He doesn't stop at a simple valuation, but carefully researches the background of the object, and produces a detailed valuation report including information about the item's history.

Each year, Heeren van Bronckhorst can be found at various Dutch art and antique fairs, such as Kunst en Antiekweekend in Naarden at the end of January and the PAN Amsterdam antique fair in November.

Over the last 13 years, Heeren van Bronckhorst has worked for individual collectors, interior designers, and museums, including Het Loo royal palace in Apeldoorn, Marinemuseum in Den Helder, Stedelijk Museum in Zutphen, and Commanderie van Sint Jan in Nijmegen. It also lent an oil painting by Matthias Tinthoff – teacher and uncle of J.B. Klombeck and friend of B.C. Koekkoek – to Haus Koekkoek museum in Cleves (Germany).

The formal garden

The formal garden

The garden behind the antiques shop and private house of Heeren van Bronckhorst was designed and laid out between 1995 and 1998. Inspired by English gardens, Frans Koekkoek and Evert Warffemius decided that their new garden should have a formal character. The 2,700m² garden is dominated by two vistas, the longest of the two being no shorter than 100m, and also features the Upper Garden, the Lower Garden, the Silent Garden with three formal ponds, the Topiary Garden, and the orchard at the end of the main vista with heritage apple and pear species and an obelisk-shaped yew tree.

We are a member of the Dutch garden society Nederlandse Tuinenstichting, which means the garden is open to the public several times a year. Appointments can be made for a (group) tour.
