Our relics may originate from private collectors, reputable dealers, estates, and have been legally acquired in accordance with all federal regulations and international law and treaties.
Because of legal difficulties to acquire antiques prior to the 19th century, we offer replicas and art objects made by local artisans or producted by our Workshop.
These objects are of three types:
  • From identical reproductions by technique of molding on the original work.
  • From unique works of local workshops, whose techniques comply with the rules of the art of ancient cultures sought regionally specific.
  • From singular Art affirming its continuity with its historic  predecessors that the aspect of our productions merges with the antique artefacts.

Our studies have resulted in the opening of a new department dedicated to the production of jade and fine stones masks.
All Crafts and Visual Arts are entirely hand-painted, ornamented, and adorned with genuine gold leaves. We create, together with the artists, The artists make all the matrices, engobes, enamels and natural colors.

Today, the manufacturing of colors is mainly industrial, and does not reflect the creative talents of the past days.
Our studies and our empirical experiences satisfy our need understand older civilizations and to enjoy the work of creative human imagination through the centuries.
With the encouragement of Masters O.Ricciardi* and G.j.A.Bresso*, the technical team therefore set out to find the secret of the " proper colours of long ago ".
In this way,  the artists source from the last European, Indo-Chinese  and mesoamerican craftsmen that have maintained or they have taken up the traditional manufacturing processes in order to obtain colours as they were centuries ago.
The Art house works with a pallet of 84 nuances.

Colours are manufactured exclusively of carefully selected natural pigments from around the world. The way they are  ground finely and slowly on stone cylinders confers them a quality and an unequalled purity.

Some of our new creations are accessible and available for consultation on the Homepage > Publication "New Productions 2018"

We authenticate objects using this type of stylistic criteria:
Improper glyphs. Errors in copying from original models, which would have been recognized by an expert who had seen the originals.
Mixing of stylistic elements from two separate cultures or time periods. Training-primitiveness crafting intentionally an artwork with skill badly in an attempt to make it appear primitive, when in fact the culture should represent had high quality craftsmanship.
Unrealistic stylistic departure from the Canon of culture the forger is trying to imitate, in an attempt to make a piece to look more rare.
When necessary, we will work with other experts and academics in a specific area in order to assess the value of an object.
We appreciate your interest and the time you have taken to consult our Work. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions regarding our craftsmanship.
Our Art is above all, a lasting cultural solidarity and a deep knowledge which can Illuminate the way of our common destiny.
