Consign with us

Do you want to sell your entire collection or a single piece?
We do both!

Since the foundation of Adams in 2009, the auction house has organised many successful single owner sales. In 2014 a new element was added to its operations. A cooperation with the leading Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad, resulted in an ongoing series of multi-consigner auctions under the name of NRC Auctions. This groundbreaking new concept has proven to be a big success and continues to experience major growth.
