who we are

If you're a lover of ancients, this store is a must-visit. Owr selection is truly Unrivaled!

I bought couple of jewellery sets from here. We met the Barakat family members and they are very nice and tried their best to make you happy before you leave their store. They have so many beautiful antique pieces and they give a certificate of authenticity for everything you buy.

Wandering around the old city I stumbled upon this amazing antiquities store. The inventory blew my mind and the staff took their time to help me find the perfect 3000 year old pitcher. It was quickly and safely exported to the U.S. and almost arrived before I did.

I was looking for first century Roman coins,

and I contacted Bassam. His response was extremely fast and professional.
I was able to buy 6 high quality ciins in great price.
Thanks Bassam for the great deal.

Amazing place!
The most stunning collection of ancient biblical artifacts I’ve ever seen!
Sinan and his father were the most gracious and generous hosts letting us hold and film some of their collection.
This will be a memory which will live long in my memory.
