In 2009, the owners of Kunstconsult, Wiljan Versteeg and Belinda Visser, came up with this poetic title 'Gestolde Dromen' for a sales weekend of 20th century glass. Vases with underwater scenes by Willem Heesen and objects from the North Sea collection by Andries Copier were the inspiration for this name. The response to the first edition was so big that in the past decade Gestolde Dromen became a major annual sales exhibition, to which glass art lovers from the 20th century look forward because of its size and quality. Now, the sales exhibition has a duration of more than six weeks and there is room for as many as 100 unique items. In addition, the exhibition remains exciting for visitors throughout the entire period, as objects sold are always replaced by new items.
