Dear $email,

I found this interesting video on Arte about the market in African masks “Le marché des masques africains” :

Are you still looking to acquire new objects to expand your Art collection?

After 9 months of absence  on Catawiki I am back "in action" with an exclusive
auction, and some exquisite items .There is a new African art auctioneer at Catawiki; his name is Dimitri André. I have entrusted my recent contributions to his meticulous care.

See below for my latest offerings. This auction starts today to end on sunday
evening 25 september 2016. 

As always, I also provide a full statement of provenance along with a detailed description of the piece
and a full guarantee on all objects.
The Catawiki page is easy to navigate – just register for the site, and then the sale, choose your preferred language (top of the page) and bid; auction costs are only
9%, and on most lots I offer free delivery.
To see the current prices of these objects, click on the pictures and you will be passed automatically to the Catawiki site. 

I know you’re going to love these great objects. As usual, with full provenances where known. 
These lots include a XIXth century Hemba-Kusu from the Kahan colllection, and a fine
Lobi . 

Hit the reply button if you have any question or want to know my limit prices. 

Wishing you a happy bidding !
