include the most diverse collection of arts and crafts from antiquity to 1900. Our antiques give a glimpse into the cabinet of curiosities of the past, from ostentatious dinner services, exquisite porcelain, and precious religious artefacts to simple glass from Europe’s first glassworks, or the most imaginative creations of folk art. There are always a lot of unique items to acquire too, such as a mummy portrait from the Faiyum Oasis in Egypt or the Byzantine stirrup ring from the 11th century.
Our professional consultations include a detailed examination of the materials, knowledge of the various marks and stamps as well as research about style and provenance.
