Welcome to my website!
My name is Jack Nelis and I live in The Hague, The Netherlands. I have been in the antiques business for over 30 years. I buy a lot of items from Dutch private collections. Traditionally there are many good Asian objects in Dutch collections, thanks to our history with he Dutch East India Company and our former colony Indonesia. I also buy a lot of items directly in Asia, where I've built up an excellent network of reliable providers.
Early Chinese terracottas, Chinese porcelain, Chinese wooden deities, Chinese jewelry, Southeastasian art from Thailand, Birma, Laos and Cambodia (Dongsong and Khmer), Japanese art, Indian art, Ethnic silver jewelry, Opium pipes and opium utensils etc. Occasionally I also have tribal, precolumbian and European art.
After 5,5 years I have closed my gallery in Den Haag in March 2016, due to the high costs. In September 2016 I moved in with modern art gallery 'Het Cleyne Huys' in The Hague, where we are offering an exciting mix of modern art and Asian antiques.
Opening hours: Wed-Sun 12.00-17.30
Twice a year, in May and November, you can find us at the 'Salon des antiquaires Place de la Bastille' in Paris. Next edition: May 3rd-14th 2017.
