Trading KLM houses

This thread is for people who want to trade their KLM houses. Please post a note with details of houses that you are looking for, and the country/area where you are located.

As many of you know, KLM gives a little porcelain houses to business-class travellers on intercontinental flights. These are often called "KLM houses" or "Dutch Delft blue miniatures". Most of them are modelled after famous Amsterdam houses, and (on flights to/from countries where alcohol is legal) they are filled with about 30 ml of Bols Jenever gin. Each year, KLM introduces a new house. Currently there are 101 different ones.

To complete my collection of houses, need the following four: 6, 96, 98 and 101. I have a number of duplicate houses and would be happy to trade for the ones that I need. So if you have one of the four that I need, please send me a private message and we can discuss a trade. I am located in Germany but often travel to the US.

I have duplicates of 1, 38 and 64. I was planning on trading them at the AMS lounge next time I'm there but if anyone needs them, feel free to reach out.

I already have: 1, 4, 6, 11, 13, 22, 23, 31, 37, 38, 40, 44, 48, 49, 50, 53, 54, 55, 58, 61, 63, 64, 66, 68, 73, 75, 76, 77, 80, 86, 88, 89, and 101.

BruceAllen you are aware that you can trade them in the KLM lounge at Amsterdam? If I am correct only in lounge 52.

That's correct, and in fact I traded four houses there just a few weeks ago. However it's a hassle. I have to put the houses into a 1 liter plastic bag, and carry them in my hand luggage through security. If I'm only traveling on the EU side, then I have to cross the Shengen border to reach Crown Lounge 52, and then cross back. And the collection they have there is somewhat random and not at all complete. So if there is someone here who wants to trade, and is only a few postage stamps away, then that also makes sense!

To add to this................I have two doubles that have now probably traveled several hundred thousand miles, I have diligently brought them with me to/through many transfers at AMS for at least 4 years, and the two carts never have the few numbers that I need. Furthermore on the flights that I have taken, they also never have the numbers that I need, this is both pre and post Covid that I am talking about here!

Which houses are you looking for, and which two do you have to trade? I'm now looking for just two: 96 and 101, and have close to 30 duplicates to trade.

Do you want some KLM houses you're missing?

Greetings
I have 2, 9, 65, 84 (also 31, which you have), all in good shape but without alcohol inside.
If you are interested in them, please let me know.
Thanks,
Therese

Bit heartbroken. My father has collected these since they first started offering them. Hes got a number of duplicates. He doesnt fly as much anymore. I happened to be transiting through AMS on klm, and am actually in the crown lounge now.
he sent me with 8 duplicates to exchange.
unfortunately he broke the seal because he was worried about the liquids and tsa etc..
they wont exchange them here because if that, and while I understand, Im still disappointed because I wanted to do this for him.

If anyone is interested Ive got these duplicates
14, 20, 23, 25, 30, 32, 43, 51, 53

I need
1,5,6,9,
34,35,
44,45,47-50,
52,55,56,
60,62,63,64,66,67,69,
70, 71, 72, 74, 75, 76, 77,79
80, 81,82, 83,85,86 and everything 88 and up

thanks everyone
