We have a family tradition in dealing with antiques.The owner's father started in the metier around 1960, when many objects of great quality dated between the end of the 19th century and beginings of the 20th century were imported to Argentina. His son, an outstanding student and now owner of our gallery, began his university career at the same time he helped his father in the profession.
For two years he combined his studies with the antiques, and began to feel deeply attracted to art (as a way of expression of human being) and its development through the history of mankind. He managed to travel the world and take contact with the artistic demonstrations of the different cultures. Expert in European art of the XIX and XX centuries, period in which he focused his years of experience, he now runs the most important antique store in the country. With a personal experience of more than 40 years in the market, he is nationally and internationally consulted. Established ten years ago in San Telmo, "the antiques neighborhood", our store is today the largest and most important store of south America, with a showroom of approximately 1000 m2.
