Are our items authentic antiquities?


The authenticity of every object listed in our online catalog is guaranteed ancient and is described to the best of our knowledge.

Every artifact purchased from us is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, stating culture, provenance and age.

We provide a lifetime, unconditional guarantee of authenticity and provenance.


Where are our items coming from?


Only from the most serious ancient art dealers, members of the International Association of Dealers in Ancient Art - - or of the Association of International Antiquities Dealers - - and from the major auction houses.

Each item is then checked by our Advisory Board.

Furthermore, we follow stringent due diligence procedures for establishing provenance - the chain of ownership - to ensure that pieces come from reputable channels and are in accordance with the law.
