The collection has a total value of $5.2m-7.9m, with the items spanning antiquity through to the 17th century.

The Hollanders were renowned for their collection, having spent since 1975 gathering treasures for display as part of a Renaissance style "kunstkammer" or cabinet of curiosities.

Continuing the Hollanders' tribute to this tradition, items in the sale will be presented according to a method of classification used by 17th century scholars, with categories including Arteficialia, Naturalia, Scientifica and Exotica.
