A grand sale from the collection of art and antique dealer and collector, Axel Vervoordt. Over 1,000 lots were offered from Vervoordt's Kasteel van's-Gravenwezel and Kanaal properties. It was a sale to make way for the new and to bring the owner's artistic outlook to a new audience. Vervoordt's eclectic taste is visible with a fusion of styles from all periods represented by art, antiquities, furniture, decorative items and garden ornament.
