Thirty years ago we started our first Ancient Art Gallery. Now it's located in the centre of Antwerp nearby the riverside, not far from the medieval cathedral and the famous renaissance town hall.
We are dealing in ancient art from the Egyptian-, Greek-, and Roman civilisation as well in very early Christian- and medieval works of art.
The authenticity of all our objects is guaranteed as described. The provenance of each item has been studied as well as possible within our ability.
Apart from other obligations we do our utmost to welcome you in our gallery on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 14.00 till 18.30 hours. The ancient art gallery is open by appointment any day of the week.
