Robert Aronson is fifth generation owner and director of Aronson Antiquairs in Amsterdam. Aronson Antiquairs was founded by Robert’s great-great-grandfather back in 1881 in the Eastern Dutch city of Arnhem and his son moved the company to Amsterdam around 1900. Although Aronson’s originally started as general antiques dealers, the generations always had a strong passion for Dutch Delftware. Two decades ago father and son Aronson decided to focus completely on the subject of Dutch Delftware and Robert is now recognized internationally as one of the leading experts in the field.
