Four days before every sale LOECKX stages an exhibition, running on Friday and Saterday from 10 am till 5 pm and on Sunday from 10 am till 1 pm .
During these exhibitions everyone is able, accompanied with one of our experts/ staff members, to examine up close the condition of every single item.
Every sale is accompanied by a catalogue in Dutch and French, available at the viewing. The digital version is put online approximately two weeks before the exhibition. The database is to be scrolled and/ or to be downloaded.
Our aim is to have an online catalogue with every item illustrated, and this by the exhibition at the latest.
