The Festive Five!

We have selected five objects from our collection, which reflect the season. We hope they will inspire and uplift you and reminding you that art objects make beautiful and personal ‘forever’ gifts!

The festive season,

as well as the shortest day of the year, are nearly upon us. These winter months, particularly the holiday season, is a period of more reflection, when our focus tends to shift inwards - to ourselves, loved ones and our homes. There seems to be more time for the beautiful objects around us, telling a story, bringing joy and lifting our spirits. These antique objects help us realise, that when the world around us is shifting, certain things remain comfortingly constant. 

Floris can deliver personally within The Netherlands in time for Christmas! Smaller items can also be couriered internationally. You can collect from the gallery as well. We always look for possibilities within the restrictions, so please contact us for anything you might want to ask or need.

The foreground has a boy on a buffalo with a whip in his hand; a bearded man and boy holding a branch are standing on the path in front of him.
