IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT 'FAKE' ANTIQUITIES AND ANTIQUES

Unfortunately, many items represented as authentic Antiquities are not genuinely ancient objects at all. Instead they are later reproductions, mostly of very recent manufacture, though a few reproductions of ancient objects are much older. Regardless of age if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely ancient then it becomes a 'fake' antiquity.
Likewise, if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely antique then it becomes a 'fake' antique.

It is always wise to deal with experienced and knowledgable dealers who are members of the governing international and national antique and art dealers associations. The membership process involves assessments of the dealer's reputation, industry experience, qualifications and knowledge. Only those meeting these standards are granted membership. Membership formally recognizes the dealer's expertise. Members comply with the associations' codes of practice and guidelines regarding authenticity and reproductions.

We are of course members of the premier national and international associations for antique and art dealers, namely...

- Members of the Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d'Art CINOA
- Members of the Australian Antique and Art Dealers Association AA&ADA

as well as...

- Members of the National Council of Jewellery Valuers NCJV
- Members and Fellows of the Gemmological Association of Australia GAA
- Members of the Society of Jewellery Historians

We advise collectors, antique dealers, auction houses, insurers and jewellers. We are involved in the management and development of significant private collections of antiques, antiquities and jewels including important Jades and Asian antiques.
