Art Nocturne Knocke introduces furniture from the Netherlands, England, France, Italy and Flanders, and this from the haute époque up to the art nouveau and art deco era, whilst modern and contemporary design also gets its place.

There are statues form the Middle Ages to present day and dazzling jewels, silver and glass collections are on offer. With regards to paintings, the art lover at the fair is presented with an overview covering centuries, starting with the Old Masters and ending with the current masters. Lovers and collectors of more exotic objects can also find their fancy. Old drawings remain much wanted, which is also the case for oriental art.
