Brooklyn Antiques is a gallery with a purpose; a treasure of the unexpected.
The gallery is located in the authentic coach house of the Vrede en Rust country estate, located in Breukelen on the river Vecht. For several years now, the country estate has housed a beautiful bed & breakfast, called Logement aan de Vecht.
Owner Reinier Brummelkamp has been active in publishing and restoring authentic riding gear (horses & carriages) for 23 years and started collecting unique objects 15 years ago. The predilection for collecting started with authentic equipment, but has expanded over the years to carriage & automobilia accessories, vintage suitcases, prints, and bronze. Besides, he also loves to collect beautiful maritime objects, such as barometers, chronographs, and many other beautiful nautical objects.
Reinier is passionate and knowledgeable about the items he sells. Each item we sell is carefully selected. Reinier likes nothing more than sharing his knowledge with the buyer of the object.
