Mr. Piet van Sabben has organised poster auctions in The Netherlands since 1991 under the name: "Van Sabben Poster Auctions". These are usually held twice a year. Viewing of posters is possible for a few weeks preceding each auction.
Exclusively Posters: Unlike most other auction houses who may include posters from time to time, Van Sabben Poster Auctions are dedicated exclusively to the auction of national (Dutch) and international posters, with the occasional addition of related books and enamel advertising signs and similar artefacts.
Auction catalogue: Before each auction a fully colour illustrated catalogue is published. These catalogues are acknowledged by collectors worldwide as being an important reference document. In addition to colour photographs of each item to be auctioned each contains an indexed name of artist and headword, extensive bibliography and the result list of the previous auction. This auction house is proud of the fact that many national and international museums, libraries and other institutions regularly order these catalogues for their own archives.
Additional services: In addition to their auctions, they are also able to offer their clients the following services: assisting in acquiring specific posters, poster restoration, valuations and advice in starting a collection.
New owner: Although a change in ownership of the company has recently taken place, Mr. Udo Boersma, the new owner, has retained the original company name of "Van Sabben Poster Auctions".
