Welcome to Graasten Antique & Art

velkommenMany people have been disappointed when visiting the known auctionhouses to sell or buy art and antiques. They have experienced a much greater enthusiasm, good will and better prices, when making contact to one of the numerous, private antique dealers who passionately want to gratify their customers.
They work hard to find information about the value and history of each piece. One of the newest dealers is Lene Meibom, Gråsten Antik. She has had a passion for art, culture and antiques, since she several years ago, in her spare time, visited exhibitions and museums in Denmark and abroad. She became a history teacher, and later became a nurse.
Art and antiques is still her great interest, and it has become greater, as her cohab is also an antiques enthusiast. In his early school years, he had a weakness for old things, and he had barely earned his first salary, when he went shopping all the places, he could find fascinating things.
Over the years it has become a huge selection of paintings and antiques, stamps and coins and especially his unique collection of candlesticks before 1700, from most places of the world, attracted a great deal of attention. So much that the Danish television station DR 1, invited him to participate in the programme, “What is it worth?” from his present home.
Years earlier, his first collection of objects d`art and antiques from the gothic period to baroque was met with positive response from the professional antique- and art dealers as well as from private collectors, and a documentary from the home was made in the magazine Antique & Auction.
Lene Meibom has with her great knowledge, combined with her cohab`s enormous private collection, a good starting point in appraising the antiques, art and paintings etc. of the customers. So she is very qualified to have goods on commission and to appraise the pieces.
The  couples enthusiasm for old things is unabated, and their knowledge is constantly followed up through reading books and magazines, watching news on the Internet, and especially by visiting antiquefairs, international antique auctions, exhibitions and markets in Denmark and abroad.
Physically they have the advantage that they live in Graasten, and can easily follow the development on both sides of the border. The male part is often tempted to buy if a special piece, that will add extra dimensions to the collection, appears on the market.
All  antique- and art enthusiasts can now find Graasten Antiques & Art on the internet and on Havnegade 8, 6300 Graasten. The homepage address is:  www.graastenantik.dk

Welcome to L Art

Today we welcome L Art as exhibitor at www.worldantique.net

Mr. Peter Lau has been in the business for 14 years, and started to attend auctions “for fun”L Art

“It quickly caught my interest, and after completing my teacher exam,
I was not sure if I would be working as a teacher, or start my own business.
I quickly took the plunge and became an antique dealer. I have no regrets.
It all started in a small basement in Copenhagen, I went shopping at flea markets and small auction houses and sold as one of the first Danish dealers on Ebay.com.

A few years later I had full-time employees as well as a considerable turnover,
I sold more than 5000 paintings annually to buyers from all over the world,
and there was not a single day that was boring.
I have bought art from all over the world, everything from a roaring stag to DKK 200 to 17 century old masters.

Dealing with art is unpredictable, and that is precisely what makes it exciting..

Today, I have adapted to the market and operates a somewhat smaller business and I will focus on international quality art effects. I buy Scandinavian design, porcelain, ceramics, paintings etc. from the 17 th century to the present day. I have customers worldwide and shop all over the world.
You can meet me at flea markets and antique fairs in Denmark and Sweden. I love my job, it’s exciting to buy, you never know what you find.
It is exciting to sell at antique fairs and flea markets, where you meet all kinds of people who are looking for very different things..”

When Peter Lau wants to unwind from a very busy schedule, he spends time with his girlfriend or go jogging with Lars from Danam antik.

Welcome to Aabenraa Antikvitetshandel

Antique dealer Lasse Petersen

WorldAntique.Net welcomes Aabenraa Antikvitetshandel as a new exhibitor.

The shop is with its 75 years of existence one of the industry’s oldest and largest, and is today run by second and third generation of the antique family from Aabenraa: Hans Jorgen & Lasse F. Petersen. Some of the users of WorldAntique.Net might know the shop from its exhibitons at the major Danish antique fairs.

The focus is primarily on quality antiques from 1600 – and 1700-century, but in recent years, modern classics and contemporary art are also included, therefore the selection today spans five centuries, but with quality as the common denominator.

The customers consist of a large international audience. It is also visible on WorldAntique.net where Aabenraa Antikvitetsandel presents a large private collection of antiques, from a foreign manor. “For 50 years the family bought almost all of their antiques in our shop, and we have now been able to sell them all again,” says Lasse F. Petersen.

Please note that the website is available in Danish and German language: www.scandinavian-antiques.dk
You will have to find the items on our Danish portal: www.antikvitet.net
or in our German portal: www.antiknetz.de




Welcome to Jesper Reutemann

We welcome Jesper Reutemann as an exhibitor at http://www.worldantique.net where he participates with his page: http://reutemann.dk/default.asp?language=44

Jesper is well-known in the antiquedealer society in Copenhagen. Indoors at winter and outdoors during the summer. In front of Thorvaldsens museum, in what Jesper names “maybe the most beautiful flea market in Denmark”

Now in the dark winter the indoor activities are performed: Sale of the internet 🙂

Jesper has actually been active on the internet for the past 10 years, and has build a large customergroup acros the World during that period. The major EU contries and USA are the most important markets for Jesper.

For many years, Jesper worked at the city hall in hvidovre, but he decided to trade the sedentary work and the foreseeable working hours with the more free life of a full time dealer.
That he achieved.

Already in elementary school Jesper traded cola, licorice and chips in the schoolyard, so he’s undoubtedly on the right smithy now as an antique merchant.

Jesper is liked and respected among colleagues. He likes to tell about his things. Both colleagues and clients benefit greatly from this. “It will be great to get started selling on worldantique.net” Jesper smiles and continues: “But I am always looking forward to meet people and to buy and sell when the  warmer weather comes back.” Commodities purchased in antique and second-hand stores, online, flea markets and clearing of estates. “I try to do it all” says Jesper, but the truth is that it is his wife Anne, who keeps track of time. There will also be time for family life at home in Frederiksberg. The household further consists of his daughter Martina, age 19, and 2 cats.

For some years, Jesper had a website with pens and pencils. This category will now be added http://www.reuatemann.dk and hence also www.worldantique.net . Jespers skills are further within stoneware and porcelain.

It’s about “feeling” and to know a good deal as Jesper says. “Dealing with people is my best skills. When you sell you service, it does not matter whether you and the customer are facing each other, or whether you write with him on the other side of the Earth”.

A beautiful philosophy, which I am sure will bring more sucess to Jesper Reutemann’s business …
