About UsAbout FitzSimon Antiques
The Fitz of FitzSimon is Joan, a Canadian living in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. The Simon is Susan, an American, also living in Ottawa. We've been avid collectors of antiques from around the world for too many years to count. We know our antiques and are passionate about the things we sell. We want you to feel confident shopping with us. We're always ready to discuss our antiques and to answer your questions. So please don't hesitate to email or call us. We subscribe whole-heartedly to Ruby Lane's return policy.
Please note that at times, we are in the process of completing a sale by phone when a purchase order for the same item comes in our email. On those rare occasions, the first contact takes precedence.
We offer a superb selection of fine silver from many countries. We try to describe our items honestly and we tell you when they have been engraved at a later date or if a crest or initials have been erased.
We also have unusual items, such as a 14k gold icon locket from the estate of Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna by direct descent, and Empress Alexandra's design of a ring for one of Nicholas II's units. Each comes with a letter of provenance from the Byington Collection which is acknowledged in books by Peter Kurth and Pat Phenix. Many of our Grand Duchess Olga items are now on display in the Dan Hodges Faberge Collection at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
We try to add new items to our shop every week or so and we consider serious offers on many items. Our counter-offers and written price lists are valid for twenty-four hours or until another purchaser goes through the check out, whichever event occurs first. You can pay easily and securely with major credit cards through PayPal; there is no fee to buyers. We also accept personal cheques from Canada & the U.S. Please email us for shipping and insurance costs.
We offer layaways, but we do not discount those items or take returns.
Thanks for shopping with us.
