About Apresa

Apresa was founded on 1 January 1998 as the result of a joint venture between the Troostwijk Groep and Cunningham Lindsey Europe. Both companies had specialist departments for the valuation of art, antiques and valuables for many years. When the demand for an independent and autonomous valuations company arose in the insurance market, it was a logical step for the Troostwijk Groep and Cunningham Lindsey Europe to join forces and establish Apresa B.V.

Our Specialism

Our specialism encompasses both the old masters and modern, contemporary art in all its guises, as well as furniture, rugs, clocks, porcelain, pictures, design, Asiatica, silver and jewelry. Choosing Apresa means choosing for the security of an independent and impartial value appraisal. Apresa works in your best interests and has no stake in purchases or sales. Thanks to many years’ experience, we are trained in treating confidential information, valuable objects and their owners with discretion and integrity.
