I'm Dirk

I was born in Kortrijk, Belgium in the fifties.

 Ending my studies I became a lawyer, but I have  never been  working as a lawyer.

I have started  my profession out of my hobby and in 1978  I opened my first antique shop,

located in the old town of Antwerp, in a nice 16th century house where I was living .

I 'm specialised in curiosities, collector items, lighting, art deco, decoration, ceramics, glass...

After 25 years I  left my first location, and  I started  another shop ( a 50m further )

At the same time I started my own  website 

and after a few  years my site has become  a real internet shop .

After 40 years I've closed my shop in the center of Antwerp

and now I have only the internet !

I hope you will have a nice trip through my site and  maybe you will

finally find the piece you have been looking for for years !

                                 Have a nice visit !
